A good place to grow within each brand.
Provided the ability to expand your knowledge throughout different departments. Working directly with the Marketing Team and Corporate Chef allowed me to expand on my abilities.

Terrible Management, Limited Advancement
Worked at head office for Recipe Unlimited (Formerly Cara Operations) for 3 years in the digital department. Created nearly all elements for advertising/print/web/social channels for all in-house brands. Work/Life Balance: The typical hours are 9am to 5pm. But you are expected to arrive a half hour early, and stay a half hour to an hour late. Taking your full lunch hour is also discouraged. They have a gym on site as well, but I would recommend limiting your usage times to before or after work (including the additional hours) as going on your lunch is frowned upon. Salary/Benefits: Company offers a decent RRSP program for long term employees. Cafeteria offers 20% off as well. Salary is quite low for the high output/fast timelines & income of a company of this scale with so many brands under its umbrella. Job Security/Advancement: Job security is not bad. Advancement is slow in the company, and very dog-eat-dog. Advancement in the digital department is virtually non-existent other than band-aid solutions ie. title changes, with no role changes or increase of trust or responsibility. Management: There appears to be a lot of office politics, in-fighting and bad blood between brand managers, leads, and departments. HR is quick to make (uninformed) decisions without getting a full picture. Digital department management is terrible. A very present struggle for power is at the top, and the entirety of the department is mismanaged. Management is very 'Do as I say, n

Questions and answers about Recipe Unlimited Corporation

If you were to leave Recipe Unlimited Corporation, what would be the reason?
Asked Aug. 13, 2018
The brand becoming too out of the package with regards to the already lacking culinary program. And the micro management and condescending nature of a GM at my location. This woman is the least desirable GM in the company and I got stuck with her
Answered Aug. 27, 2020
Because the GM had broken me down to the point of a mental breakdown or anxiety attack
