You can meet a variety of employees including very good people. However, too old bureaucrtic system was very impressive. Keep studing and learning! They didn't answer even simple questions Yes or No for 6 months. I lost too much time and money here. Are you busy? Everyone is busy!
Pros
Good Employee
Cons
Poor HR system

I went in thinking this is going to be huge. It is a sad place with poor direction. Co-workers are great, but senior management and many other lead positions are made up of promoted inexperienced staff. Very disappointing to say the least.
Pros
The thought of what it could have been
Cons
The thought of what it’s becoming

I worked here for over a year and while most of my coworkers were good, management had no idea what was going on. They tell you one thing and then change it the next week without telling anyone. They're not open to suggestions. The schedule is random and almost everyday you have off you'll get asked to come in anyway. And don't even bother if you have a disability or mental health issues of any kind because they will push you out the second you become a slight inconvenience. The pay is garbage and you'll never get recognized for the good things you do. The benefits are minimal at best and sure, you get 20% off of weed but you wont get enough hours to pay your rent so what's the point? Also last winter the heater blew and it took over a month for them to fix it, so everyone was freezing because the store was only at 15 degrees or less. They don't care about employee at ALL!
Pros
laid back
Cons
barely any hours, empty promises, no clue whats going on, poor managment.

Never a clear sense of direction or firm decisions, Canopy managers make and reverse decisions multiple times daily. Lots of $$ for managers, not so much $$ for support staff.

Lots of talking about possibilities but very little positive activity. Too many people working on supply chain unaware of what actually happens in grow or any other group.


Ridiculous
Pros
Paycheck
Cons
Commute to Smith's Falls

The writing is on the wall at this facility. They cant produce a decent product. Employees are hanging on for a stock price that they will never see. Growers and management obviously have no experience with cannabis. Constellation will shut the doors here sooner than later.
Pros
Experience in the cannabis industry
Cons
Everything else

Favouritism at its finest. If you don’t kiss their butt, you won’t last. All the managers stand around and watch everyone do stuff for them. Absolutely no room for advancement, no matter how much you do. If they like you they like you, if not don’t get your hopes up.

New Amercian CEO and American majority share holders Constellation brands (Corona beer) are busy stripping assets and moving the business to America. No one's job in Kanata is safe, and I fear for the town of Smiths Falls. It may soon be left by Canopy Growth as abruptly as they fire their hundreds of employees.
Pros
Best marketing team in the industry
Cons
The entire marketing team has now been fired

From the shop opening until the COVID-19 epidemic there was a distinct lack of essential communication regarding product availability, upcoming product launches and basic product information from marketing to sales to retail.

Everything that was communicated from head office to the retail stores felt like it was a game of broken telephone. no direct lines of communication and just getting passed around from HR rep to HR rep until your email eventually get buried and you are left to your own devices.


During the COVID-19 epidemic they had not communicate a single word to retail staff between the beginning of April until mass layoffs in July. just dragged staff along with "temporary layoffs" and otherwise radio silence.
Pros
Relaxed work atmosphere
Cons
no job security

It’s an okay place to work, they can be understanding at some points. Some people were nice some people were rude. I felt out of place there and found it was hard to make friends, the place is really clicky. Wish they would pay better but they are cheap. The fired me out of nowhere and don’t know why. So you always have to be on your toes

Management seems to have very little clue as to what exactly cannabis is... so it is slightly difficult for them to make consistent, reliable, and well thought out work plans. Employees that go above and beyond are treated horribly... stayed for 2 years, I dont think anyone I started with is still there. There is an incredible amount of competition between everyone, especially supervisors and production associates. Extremely long hours, reduced breaks based on demand for production. Insane amount of insider trading and investor fraud throughout every branch of the company. Would not recommend to my worst enemy. Biggest waste of my time !
Pros
Not many... yoga that cuts into break time that nobody wants to do?
Cons
Almost every single employee and object in the place, And dont forget the 27 cent raise after 2 years, Thanks guys.

Management bully people and do NOTHING about harassment. they treat all the good employees terribly that work their butts off to get their precious numbers. there is no chance of moving up within the company unless you suck up to management and become a favorite, they dont care about actual skills. nepotism runs rampant and it shows. management are all failed wally world supervisors that stand around with their thumbs up their butts and think they are above everyone because of their job title. NO organization or proper communication, if something goes wrong you get blamed for it. you get grouped up together and talked to like a child by incompetent people that shouldn't be in position of authority, its like going back to high school again. you dont get paid to do extra duties like doing team lead work or being an operator, they dont value their employees, you can work there for years and still make the same pay. for a company that claims to be so reputable, they are so unprofessional and toxic to work for. dont waste your time
Pros
weed

Supervisor was awesome, helpful and accommodating. Helped me find other employment when there was no longer a position for me. Adhered to company rules, regulations, policies etc. while being fair and personable.

A garbage company to work for, and is spiraling downhill due to nepotism. management and hr are full of incompetent failed Walmart supervisors who power trip and treat people badly to feel better about themselves. you only get promoted if your the right persons friend, they dont care about actual skills and work ethic, its all about favoritism and you get scr*wed over on your postilion without any warning. they dont allow you to ask any questions or else you get called an energy vampire which is a bunch of BS. management is miserable and dont know what they are doing, the one manager even does roids. the other one treated everyone terribly and is a total parasite that everyone is sick of. just a toxic environment to work in, they try to brainwash you to believe it is such a good company to work for, but there is no chance of going anywhere and no organization whatsoever. the weed has mold in it, you get grouped together and talked to like a child. you are underpaid, they dont seem to value their employees and keep them at minimum wage even after being there for a few years, or if you take on more responsibility. dont work here if you have any dignity, find something better.
Pros
weed
Cons
bad management

Procurement department is very fun place to work at. The manager and the co-workers are all very nice. The company culture is very good. The purchasing job is keeping you busy but you will learn a lot in the job.

The people you work with, tremendous. The people you work for, not so much. Most management are some of the worst, out of touch people I have ever had the pleasure to work for. They do not listen to their knowledgable staff. Treat their staff with little to no respect. Promotions/advancements in the early days were based on skills, now based on how friendly you are with your superior.

Quality is talked about like it is most important but in reality it is not. Only thing important is meeting KPI's at any cost and the bottom line/share price.


Instead of striving to be the first they should have just tried to be good at something, anything.
Pros
co-workers

There really is no typical day at work at Canopy Growth as the priorities of management are everchanging. It is a very dynamic workplace so this aspect may appeal to certain people as it does give you the opportunity to learn something new all the time. However; considering the amount of work that is put in by employees on a daily basis just to make things work, the pay, benefits and opportunities for growth are not sufficient.

Very toxic and dysfunctional workplace. Favouritism is rampant. Safety protocols are ignored frivolously. Health and safety has no involvement with the staff. The HR department is a joke.
Pros
You get to be around weed.
Cons
Everything else.

This is not for the faint of heart. We work hard we but we have lots of fun. Things are consistently changing and it has been a wild ride. Management style is relaxed as long as you do your work. They have flexible hours and monthly happy hours. Co-workers are awesome! The culture is great! It feels good to work for a company that is evolving, inventing and making a difference in people’s lives.

CGC had a great culture, supporting local towns with jobs and contracts and supporting employees. Unfortunately as the company grew so fast, the culture became more corporate and the teams too large until CGC became unable to be nimble or pivot.
Then new leadership came in and laid off over 1000 ppl globally in a quarter. Now the culture is one of fear about job security and further mass layoffs. And the closures of large facilities, retail locations and offices resulted in the loss of local jobs is the antithesis of supporting local.
