As a large company they hold little respect to their employees and will termite employment to a person without much thought. The company it self has great policies and regulations but they don’t translate to a good employee/company relationship. The company is always looking for new employees for a real.

Cargill Animal Nutrition's commitment to safety and guiding principles created a culture that I was very proud to be a part of.
As a retail sales representative, my territory encapsulated Alberta and Northern Saskatchewan. Developing strong relationships backed by products that performed forged trust. Listening, aligning, and being agile not only created success among client but teammates as well.
ProsCompany vehicle, expense account, base salary with additional commissions
ConsCorporate goals didn't align with end customers, company elected to dissolve the retail segment and jobs were lost

Health Services Administrator | High River, AB | May 24, 2016
Worst place to work for
I worked as a salary employee for 1 year. The hourly employees are treated like dirt. I worked in the disability department and health services in High River, AB and my job was to keep employees from receiving any benefits if they were sick or injured.
I was yelled at and had things thrown at me by my supervisor if I didn't do what he wanted me to do and if I helped employees receive their benefits. The Health Services manager would use her master key to unlock the bathroom door when she felt I was taking too long using the bathroom in health services.
I quit and easily proved their corruptness and was given money through unemployment insurance to upgrade my education to get a better job.
ProsNot a thing
Material Handler | Etobicoke, ON | Jan. 17, 2013
productive, Used to have Christmas parties, Thank-you and rewards.
Early start times for day shift, learned a lot of different jobs and was able to join different teams,and gained a lot of knowledge.
Management was alright same as any place some good some bad, with different attitudes so handling people skills in some cases could of been better. Co-workers are arrangement of different ethnic groups so sometimes communication was a problem, trying to get them to understand what they need to do. It was mostly up to your co-workers to show you what you need to do, we trained each other.
Hardest part was always fast paced, cold and when you did good or great they always wanted more an would speed things up.
Enjoyable parts were long term ee. it felt like family cause you r with them more, sometimes more then your own. Rewards program, able to communicate if things could b better an did get feedbacks. So sometimes you could c something you suggested actually b implemented, that felt great.
Proshad job security, unionized, able to rotate jobs in house opportuinity
Consfast paced. some long hours, cold environment.
