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

    Pros

    Full time plus overtime most weeks

    Cons

    Not competitively paid. Not much room for much financial growth.

    Advice to Management

    New temporary employees should have a small class where they are shown different finished products, both good and bad so they know what is expected and what is unacceptable. Most of the new people have no clue what they are looking for in the product.

    I worked at Saputo full-time

    Pros

    Supportive and knowledgeable floor staff.
    Good pay and great benefits.
    401K matching.
    SAP roll out, while an internally shaky experience, was badly needed. Props to the company for a long overdue ERP update.

    Cons

    Depending on the department, management support is either present or virtually nonexistent.
    Management tends to play favorites and does not do much to hide doing so.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. Do so regularly, and preferably in writing so no one conveniently forgets what was said later.

    Be supportive, encouraging, and please stop playing favorites with your staff members.

    Listen to the staff when they answer your questions and don't automatically dismiss their input.

    Provide your staff with the tools to produce the results you want. We want to produce results, too.

    Morale is very low right now. The staff on the floor regularly communicates with each other regarding these issues and many have the same complaints.

    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.
