Proffessional work place, great staff, lots of work made days go fast
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 19 January 2017
I enjoyed my time at Culligan water, It was unfortunate when about 10 of us got laid off the same day. The work load was large but made my days go fast. It was difficult sitting at a desk for 8 hours as I am used to working in Food and Beverage ( on my feet all day) . I am an active person with lots of energy.

Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 September 2016
i scheduled all the service techs, for daily and weekly jobs, maintained the tech calendars daily to ensure the routing was done correctly, I spoke to Customers to book the time the the Tech to come out and to get better details of work needed to be completed.
Management, Lack of communication, no advancement opportunities
Driver/Labourer (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 3 January 2017
Don't waste your time in applying to culligan they will break your back or knees with the amount of workload. Unsafe They expect you to devote life to manually delivering over priced salt and water. Lots of stairs. Its 75% manual labour 25% driving. If you address an issue to management it goes unheard and ignored.
the only good thing to say about the company is they have some very nice customers
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Belleville, ON – 22 February 2017
Customers can be very nice and helpful or complete and call and complain about you for no good reason. Company does not stand up for there drivers Managment gets mad at you for doing your job, always have something to complain about what you're doing wrong, there is no right with them. Even when you get more customer compliments that call in and say how wonderful you are you get in trouble. terrible pay they will only give you half the commision rate they claimed they would pay you. extremely high turnover rate. There fleet is extremely outdated and overworked terrible condition. replaces old trucks with the absolute cheapest. does not fix there trucks even when unsafe because they dont want to pay for them. i have talked to 2 ex employees and they have worse things to say than i do. Company treats there employees like garbage. Kingston is way better and bigger. Better trucks and 50 more than belleville and treats there employees like they should.

Customer Service Representative assistant manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 August 2016
The only good thing about this company is very few who work there. The good ones make going to work there very easy. The others well.... No matter how many times you bring it to a supervisors attention they still continue to work there even tho they should have been fired months before.
Office Manager (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 9 November 2016
Fun place to work as we are all like family and will be lifetime friends. I have changed roles many times over my time here. I have went from CSR to service coordinator and the warehouse/inventory supervisor and now office/inventory supervisor.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 8 August 2016
unorganized, the fort mcmurray location doesn't let you have a life at home, but if the supervisors want to go on break.. they push there work load onto the drivers. very pore communication between office and drivers
supervisor pushs his work onto everone else and adds runs to people that he doesnt like
Service Department Assistant (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 3 June 2016
Great place to work. if you are willing to work really hard then you will fit in. very stressful and very fast pace. management try their best to help out staff members and will do bbqs to keep the moral up
CSR (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 15 March 2016
I didn't work at Culligan long. A month and a half. In the first week I noticed how bad the company is run. I'd never work somewhere so unorganized. The owners daughter can yell at you and put you down and that is ok because it's the owners daughter. They don't properly train you and pass blame to anyone they can. After working there a month I was about to go on stress leave when wrongfully dismissed due to other people's unintelligence. I wouldn't work for them again between the terrible pay and hours being critized and put down it's not work the pain or the headache you go home with.
Thumbs up for corporate - thumbs down for franchise
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 October 2014
Way too much to do and no time to do it in. Little to no appreciation for hard work. Problems with staff retention can be traced back to not investing enough time and money where it's needed. Co-workers are a real plus as are middle management, but you are always watching your back. I lost track of how many people I saw get fired or quit. Not all branches are equal, other locations have fantastic support. Everyone, ultimately, has to dance to the tune of the current ownership. They seems either too focused on the bottom line on this month's balance sheet, or are clueless in managing different business models. Working here is like winning a ticket for the Titanic - looks good, but you know how it's going to end.
Great management team with a solid founadtion in sales.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – London, ON – 10 September 2013
The workday always starts with a team meeting led by Supervisor. Daily goals are set and yesterdays goals are discussed. Goals are realistic and time manageable. The hardest part of the job was making a sale because not everyone wants to have soft water.
