The Management are unfriendly
Wire Assembler (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ONJanuary 25, 2016
My Typical day at work there just fine. The work hours starts at 9.
I learned how to assemble the Wires and how to use Electrical Equipment.

The Management are unfriendly they don't talk to you unless they need something to you.

Great pay and opportunity, horrendous and immature managers and ethical practices
Supervising Lead (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONJuly 20, 2015
I was a supervising lead making great pay and receiving wonderful benefits at Anixter. The downfall of this company is how they preach "we are a team", yet the immature operations manager blames every missed order on individuals, rather than team efforts. I was constantly defending my own actions, even though I worked safe, efficiently and ethically. I was blamed on multiple occasions instead of given constructive criticism. Every employee below upper management is treated with disrespect, and was expected the impossible, even though that company does not employ nearly enough staff to handle the amount of orders they receive daily. They are a greedy bunch and all about their own personal commissions and bonuses. I am glad I am gone from that place. Do not recommend this place at all, especially the Mississauga location.
Pros
Decent pay, good benefits
Cons
No team work, bad management, immature environment, lack of respect, lack of investigating issues such as verbal harassment

Love to provide support to a sales team
Sales Support/New Business Development (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, ManitobaMay 30, 2014
Assisting sales team with customer inquiries, returns, lost shipments, back orders, requests for literature.
Also called on customers no longer dealing with the company and was able to get them back as customers, plus attract new clients for the sales team to follow up on and develop.
Co-workers were helpful, fun and became good friends.
Hardest part of the job was when there was nothing to do.
Most enjoyable part of the job is when I was extremely busy and productive.
Pros

Cons
co-workers getting too personal
