    I worked at Labatt full-time

    Pros

    There are some great perks to working for Labatt, especially if you are in a good location. Advancement opportunities are also good, depending on where you are located and how mobile you are.

    Cons

    The plant in question was one of the most toxic work environments I have ever had the displeasure of being a part of. The animosity here is palpable.

    Advice to Management

    Management has lost all control of the plant. Engagement and morale are at an all-time low. No respect for one another. No accountability for any actions. The most important areas of the business are being neglected to the point of no return.

    Pros

    Great start out of college. Comfortable place to call home. Management is very friendly and accomodating. Most upper management have been with the company over 10 years. Most of the professional employee base are young in the low to mid 20s but are a selection of intelligent individuals. Plenty of room to be creative with your position and present new and interesting ideas to be considered realistically by management.

    Cons

    Low training opportunities. Software and systems are out of date and unused in large business. Advancement potential is slightly lower because most managers have been there for a very long time. A Pro in the sense that people stay, a con in the sense of advancement... However, the managers now were advanced at some point as well. Biggest concern is the desire to grow the company. Labatt is below average industry growth.

    Advice to Management

    They treat employees wonderfully. All senior managers are very approachable and helpful.

    I worked at Labatt full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Talented people focused on outdoing themselves. Exceptional programs for developing new graduates and fostering international opportunities as part of career development.

    Cons

    Sometimes you get a chance to taste new products long before it comes to market -- and you can't tell anyone how fantastic it tastes!

    Advice to Management

    Rent more space to allow for more meeting rooms. And the open concept is a little too open. Too little space to spread out.

    I worked at Labatt full-time

    Pros

    I was a merchandiser and there was not a single nice thing about this job and compagny

    Cons

    Salary is laughable, about 20% less than the competition
    Expect to do at least 10h per day (overtime never paid obviously)
    They require you to have a university degree yet you spend all your time putting beer and shelves and putting price card
    Work life balance is awful

    Advice to Management

    We were 11 merchandiser hired in may 2016, not even a year later everyone of them quited ..
