Entering the workforce is an egg-citing time for any new grad.
Chances are your mind is filled with a million different questions: “What will I be doing?” “What will my coworkers be like?” and the biggest one of all: “Will I fit in?” Every company has their own unique culture and work environment – the key to success is to find the one that suits your personality and work style the best.
At Labatt, they pride themselves on their fun and dynamic work culture, making it the perfect place for like-minded individuals to hatch a career. We connected with 3 recent grads at Labatt to see what they had to say about working for the company.
“One of the main things that I value about the company is that they strive to have well rounded people that push each other competitively, while still having an enjoyable and fun work environment.”

Labatt’s longstanding reputation as an industry leader was a big reason why all 3 grads chose the organization, but it was the company culture that sealed the deal.
“I was sold from Day 1,” says Cameron Dagg, a Global Management Trainee. “I was blown away as soon as I stepped into the information session by the friendly atmosphere, casual banter and the results-driven culture.”
Packaging Group Manager Kyle Randall had a similar first impression. “One of the main things that I value about the company is that they strive to have well-rounded people that push each other competitively while still having an enjoyable and fun work environment,” says Kyle.
For Specialty Portfolio Manager Emma, it was how each employee lived the Labatt “Dream, People, Culture” motto that caught her attention the most. “During the interview process, every individual was invested in the process, and was continually striving to improve,” says Emma.
Even now that they’ve settled into their roles, they continue to be impressed by the company’s people-focused culture.
“The company culture allows everyone to grow at their own pace and inspires individuals to act like owners,” says Emma. “As a result, you have a workforce full of creative, hardworking people who are committed to seeing the company grow.”

Even if you have the right skills and personality, it can take some time to adapt to a new work environment. For new hires looking to build a career with Labatt, the new grads say that the best thing to do is immerse yourself in the culture as much as possible.
“Reach out and ask questions,” says Emma. “Especially at the beginning of your career, you will have a multitude of questions about your role and the industry as a whole and employees are more than happy to sit down and answer your questions.”
You could also take a more physical approach like Cameron and Kyle. They joined their company’s sports teams to foster valuable relationships with their team. “Participating in these events outside of work, is the best way to illustrate to your co-workers that as a team you can achieve results and have a blast while doing it!” says Cameron.
But all three grads agreed on one thing: it’s the people that make Labatt such an egg-ceptional place to work.
“I’m fortunate to work with the best people,” says Cameron. “There is no challenge we cannot overcome together, someone will know the answer or a way to find it.“
“The best part about working for Labatt is the people that I get to work with,” says Kyle. “Although everyone is very different, there is still the common thread of ambition, teamwork, and dedication towards achieving results together.”
Adds Emma: “We are all focused on a shared dream – to be the best beer company in a better world.”
