    I have been working at Niagara Bottling as an intern

    Pros

    Great and helpful people around you. Everyone offered me assistance if needed. Compared to other internship offers, pay is well for interns. Positive future outlook for company. Comprehensive internship program. Opportunity to work in other areas I'm interested in. They hire interns to become full-time. Leadership willing to help and give opportunity. Free Niagara shirts. Buddy and mentor program helps interns 'get out' there more. Discount on bottled water.

    Cons

    No sick days available until after 90 days- internship is almost done by then.

    Advice to Management

    Keep engaging employees and give them control/autonomy to complete their job duties. Niagara hires top-notch people, so let them do their thing.

    I worked at Niagara Bottling full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    While I was employed at Niagara, my life was financially set. The great benefits, profit sharing, bonuses were great. I was always showing people the Glassdoor app. Telling them that now our small town offered incentives to prosper. Thanks Niagara

    Cons

    I didn't find any challenges when I had worked there. Now I'm trying to get hired again. So, the whole process of having to go through the hiring stage will be worth the wait. I want to be a Forklift Ooerator really bad, but if I get hired again, as a production operator, then I can't wait to punch in again

    Advice to Management

    Try to look at some past employees, with a different outlook as , he didn't last long, last time. Maybe the timing was just not in the cards for them. Normally, an individual that wishes to seek employment again, will try to overcome their past employment, with a stronger desire to be a better employee. .The older the individual, the better the employee. Have them sign an agreement, that will benefit everyone at Niagara.

    I have been working at Niagara Bottling full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Niagara Bottling is an amazing place to work if you are passionate about learning, growing, and contributing to the greater good of the company and community. I have been at Niagara for over 1.5 years, and there is not one single day that I regret working for Niagara. I have been to multiple bottling plant locations, worked on numerous exciting projects, and participated in department summits and meetings. I've learned countless skills, ranging from project management to troubleshooting instruments. With the guidance of my director and team, we built and started up the corporate quality lab in less than one year. Niagara is a fast-pace company, with a lot of opportunity for growth and development. And the best thing about working for Niagara is that Niagara cares! I love Niagara!

    Cons

    Parking is can be difficult to find from 8am-3pm. I would recommend starting work early, and bringing lunch so that you don't have to leave until the end of the day.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to make sure that your subordinates know that you appreciate all of the work that they do, and how their work contributes to the greater good of the company. Sometimes people need a brief reassurance, even if they are doing great, to know that their managers appreciate them, their efforts, and their time.

    I have been working at Niagara Bottling full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been in the bottling business for 18 years and with Niagara for the last 4 years. Niagara is a company that actually invests a lot of money in the machines to keep them running well and employee training unlike other companies in the industry.
    There is a feeling of job security with Niagara and many opportunities to advance within the plant as well as the many new plant's Niagara has been building over the last few years.

    Cons

    The bottling industry requires a lot of hard work and is very fast paced. So the pressure that comes with working in the business is great for some people and others adapt very well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. I see Niagara growing a lot in the little time I've worked here. As always communication is the key.
