Coming from GOV call centre operations it was a culture shock for IT infrastructure. The IT team are not well funded / structured and therefore all work is just a temporary fix. Phone system and Sales database crashed every other day and staff are forced to complete written order templates 70's style.
Management handled a COVID19 risk to all staff very poorly. Allowing a staff member who's husband had returned from Dubai the night before, and didn't quarantine for 14days, attend work on the Monday Morning.

Staff issues were not resolved. And staff were instructed NOT to contact HR with their concerns.

The sales database was written/compiled about 20yrs ago and has not been upgraded to a CRM. It has numerous pitfalls and mistakes that allow the user to duplicate/over-order/under-order/order incorrect item/s etc. So basically impossible for new staff to manage their error rate.

Good perks - free gym; good staff discount on food; free secure parking on-site.

Good training & support however IT constraints made it difficult at times.

No internet access; no emails therefore memo's regarding sales/product updates etc. came around in hard copy to be signed and then taken.

Product info/knowledge retention was almost impossible. Unable to save Fav's; Unable to create desktop shortcuts; Unable to print anything.

99% of the team were a dream to work with and it was a relaxed and happy place to work, apart from those issues.
Pros
FREE Gym; FREE secure parking onsite; Staff discount on food
Cons
Poorly managed COVID19 risk to all staff. HR issues not resolved / escalated to HR

I previously worked at Lite N Easy for 3 years both in factory ( process worker ) and office. The good thing about Lite N Easy is they are always busy. They make products more and faster. They pushed the worker too hard, thus there are so many injured and sick people. If this happens to you they will just put you on light duty for 1 month and they will saked you after that if there is no development. The culture and some of the workers at Lite N Easy are very rude and insecure people. They gossip so much about personal life and I noticed that a lot workers here got *exually attracted to each other and It results of them cheating on their partners. I have experienced *ullying here as well when I got promoted to a higher level job. All employees including supervisors tried to attacked me since I got the promotion. It caused me so much stress and I felt depressed working at Lite N Easy which results me quitting the job for my own personal safety.
Pros
Gym, Bonus, Covered parking, doctors on site
Cons
Unfair Management. Gossiping everywhere, digging other people personal life. Stealing/ cheating to their partners.

I enjoy being apart of a small team in the bakery department baking healthy treats and snacks, I like how we have set stations in our room which requires using different techniques for each product its repetitve but fun at the same time, we work with the time of ovens cook in cook out trying to meet the daily production total. We have people who are continuously creating new recipes with strict healthy nutritional baking, demand on production in our small room working under pressure we cope with little maintanace on our equipment and appliances. I like how im apart of a company that encourages healthy living.
Pros
Free Gym, Family days out, Doctor on site
Cons
I need school hours, i need 7am -3pm shift

A typical day at work is packing pallets, ensuring correct count of product is present and making sure the team is fairly rotated. I learned how to work with great time management, so that no matter how busy it was, we could keep up as a team and with production. Learning how to get along with a team no matter how any team member was feeling was always important and learning how to build rapport came easily, which was good because it brought good balance to people focus and task focus. The hardest part of the job was going through different methods of working and finding which way best suited me. Observing the way other team members worked, but at the end of the day, it always came down to figuring out quickly how I best work. The most enjoyable part of the job was feeling accomplishment of productivity during along with all other team mates.
Pros
Discounted meals, free health checks, free access to the gym and to personal trainers.
Cons
Working far from home and around heavy traffic hours
