    I have been working at Saputo full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, great HR, company strives to create positive atmosphere, spends on food and entertainment, down to earth, no BS, emphasis on core business. Many people have been around for a while.

    Cons

    Flat organization - limited opportunity for growth, management prefers to hire from out side rather than grooming people internally. Local management does not fight the corporate which brings certain misalignment in priorities.

    I worked at Saputo full-time

    Pros

    Great hours. I was done at 2pm everyday and had 40 hours in by the end of the day on Thursday. The people there were very nice to be around. Saputo takes good care of their employees.

    Cons

    The location I worked at paid lower than the other plants. 4 AM start time can start to wear on you.

    Bring the pay up to where other Saputo plants are.
