If you are reading this.... Do not work here!!!
Route Driver (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXSeptember 26, 2018
Do not work here unless you want to get your cdl through them. Then after that leave! They have you delivering to places where trucks dont belong (tight spaces, neighborhoods that says no trucks allowed) and if you get a ticket or accident its your fault. They break all the rules here including running out of hours. The pay is terrible considering the fact you're working almost 70 hours a week. Managment never answers the phone! And if u get to a stop and the warehouse forgot or damaged a case it comes out of your paycheck. Seriously FIND ANOTHER JOB.. KEEP LOOKING
Pros
maybe off weekends if u dont run out of hours
Cons
Pay, managment, stress, lies... i can go on

Don't work here
Purchasing (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXAugust 1, 2018
But like any job, there are always good and bad. Its a great company to learn process and data analysis skills. Management is poor in communication and movement within the company is non-existent.
Pros
great pay and benefits
Cons
its like working for a company in the 1950's. Very corporate and up tight.

Great company to work for
FREEZER TRAINER (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 24, 2018
A typical night would consist of order selecting dry and frozen food from warehouse and freezer and shipping to trucks for next day delivery. I learned to work in cooler temperatures for the first time in the freezer. Management gives routes and shipping orders according to work orders. The hardest part of the job was adjusting to the colder temperatures. The most enjoyable part of the job was busy nights and fast finishes.
Pros
Pay is pretty good
Cons
Long hours with no over time

Lead Order Selector/Loader (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJune 12, 2018
Competitive work place environment that tries to push you to definitely receive the most out of you. Labatt food service is a good place to work for a while only because it has good job security.
Pros
Flexibility of jobs
Cons
Pessimistic environment

Procurement Specialist/Buyer (Current Employee) –  TexasFebruary 25, 2018
Loved my team but other teams can be very self centered and make it difficult to do my job. I wish we had better benefits especially vacation time. 5 days is nothing to work with at all.

not a productive workplace/enviroment
Night Expediter (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 25, 2018
a lot of employees do not show up to work. Workplace culture is very different. Hardest part about the job is people not showing up, so that requires you doing even more work.

Good place to Get some experience.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 5, 2018
It’s a job to get you some driving experience under your license. The pay sucks and management is poor. They work you like a slave. Get some experience and get out. Is not worth the headaches. They are always short on drivers which makes it tough on the drivers.
Pros
Benefits, home time, weekends off
Cons
Little pay too much work.

No room for growth
Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 26, 2018
Nepotism is key at this place. Most of the other employees will receive the same 3% bonus every year. They also do not offer any vacation days during your first year.

Unless you're in a jam, find another job.
Order Selector (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 12, 2018
I was hired as a night selector and was using this job as a second source to pay off student loans. The job concept is very remedial. You get a list of products at 5pm, hop on your motorized tugger, hook up a flatbed, and grab your products from the warehouse. Repeat all night long until they say it's over, which can result in very long nights most of the time. The major knock on that is you get base pay so no overtime. Most nights will go way past 8 hours. The job doesn't require you to talk to anyone so most people at work will stay to themselves. I'm used to greeting people, and that was not the case at Labatt. They want everyone to work super fast, but everyone is using forklifts, tuggers, etc. That's definitely not a safe atmosphere is you ask me. I almost got hit a few times, simply because everyone is speeding in the warehouse while coming around corners, looking at shelves instead of whats in front of them, etc. Human Resources, specifically at the Houston location is laughable, I'm just going to be honest. It's completely unprofessional, and inexperienced. My day job's management and HR is leaps and bounds over Labatt's. I guess since they have a high turnover, they just don't really care for the employees that much. I've been at my day job for 10 years and will most likely stay another 10 years because that's what employees do when they work for great companies. I would only recommend this job to someone who really needs a job super fast, otherwise I would pass on this one.

Its a okay place
day receiving (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 9, 2017
Houston Labatt is a good place to work for
The management here is poor, (operations, Supervisor & lead )
All change up ideas & noting really works for any improvement
If you call in they give u have time & question you so much
Management (Supervisor) has poor communication skills , really rude
in the past both night & morning supervisor have been accused with harassment. Management likes to hide behind windows to watch their employees, Most of all good working people leave.

Not all employees here have the proper skills & knowledge for a promotion or position to grow with the company.
Pros
40 hrs mornigs & 12-13 hr nigths
Cons
harrasment to all workers

Pros
No Overtime
Cons
Lack of Training and poor management
