You've probably seen Wong Wing products at the grocery store — but did you know it's a local company born in Montreal's Chinatown in 1948? Wong Wing's food manufacturing plant now operates out of the city's Ville-Marie borough, near Hochelaga, and the Montreal company is currently hiring 60 workers for a range of roles.
This manufacturing plant makes everything in the company's product portfolio, Wong Wing spokesperson Rose Alvarado told MTL Blog. According to the website, Wong Wing offers the country's largest selection of frozen Chinese dishes so that's a whole variety of freezer food — from won ton soup to spring rolls to chicken chow mein.

Wong Wing, also known as MLW Foods Inc., is looking to fill 20 night positions and 40 day positions.
The jobs include:

team lead production
lift truck driver

Alvarado said the company provides its employees with fair wages, access to pensions and health care, health and wellness programs, flexible working, a safety program, free parking and fun events.
The plant is also close to the Frontenac metro station.
Qualifications depend on the position, but Alvarado said production positions do not require experience or bilingualism. You should still apply if you only have very basic conversational French skills.

"The idea is not to condense the working hours into [four] days, but rather to review our ways of doing things and our quality time invested, with the aim of working better!" Eidos Head of Studio David Anfossi explained in a Q&A.
"Above all, we want to increase the productivity and well-being of our employees."
He said the company is currently working on a transition plan. One idea is to reduce all meetings within the company from one hour to 30 minutes.
Anfossi suggested pandemic-related remote work restrictions and emphasis on employee well-being pushed the company to rethink its approach to its operations and culture. He also said Eidos was inspired by a four-day workweek pilot project in Iceland.
He called the move to reduce working hours "another step towards the embodiment of the studio's values, building a healthy, creative, and sustainable work environment for our employees."
Eidos is responsible for projects such as Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers video game adaptations, among others.
