Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 January 2018
Company to too top heavy with management. Never happy they always want more more more. Training was dependent on your coworkers to provide and they are actually your competition for the most part so obviously bare minimum of training provided. You had to know how to work the system to your advantage or be the bosses "favorite" to be successful which was difficult to do with the poor training provided. Systems and processes were ridiculously repetitive and unnecessary. Micro managed to death. Too many others allowed to encroach on your territory making success almost impossible. Think twice before you apply!!!
poorly organized and full of workplace Mistreatment
Spot Quoter (Former Employee) – Grand Falls, NB – 14 January 2018
This company is extremely disorganized in all departments. The management team is what needs to change. Lying and turning employees against each other for entrainment purposes will not make your team thrive and be successful. They will tell you to your face that you are doing well-but will belittle and destroy your work ethic behind your back. You exhaust yourself to do a high intensity job to barely get over minimum wage, or a simple thank you. Favoritism was also common. There was nobody to turn to for advice or have in your corner if something was wrong. Go elsewhere, honestly you’ll be much more appreciated. This company could potentially thrive, but a desperate need in management and supervisors needs to happen.
Administration Assistant (Current Employee) – Hartfield, NB – 4 July 2017
you'll be pulling your hair out trying to do your job, only to be told your not doing it. they want you to bend over backwards for them but will not do the same for you. their HR team is ignorant and sadistic, and will do anything to get you out. its just a out of date place, they need to train people to properly manage people. your efforts and experience would be appreciated anywhere but here. McCains should be ashamed they have this under their belt as a second company, they treat their employees like manure.
Dock Worker (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 14 June 2017
It is like trying to hammer nails with a broken hammer while your hands are behind your back and someone has stolen the blueprints. No thought for safety or people - the atmosphere on the shop floor is the worst I have ever seen in terms of negativity, hopelessness.
Why do I work here - it currently pays the bills.
Having the experience that I do it is especially frustrating to watch management destroy a business along with the people who work there.
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 14 June 2017
There is no real training there, as most people there only really care to get in, do their time (so to speak) and get out, and with no communication on any level of the work environment, most information gets lost, leading to increases in their shrinkage.
Floor staff is care-free, which coupled with the lack of real training, leads to a revolving door of workers. This also can be said with reference to their management as well.
Lack of communication from/Lack of care for the staffing from management.
Manager (Former Employee) – East,West – 5 May 2017
I have never work for such a dysfunctional company like Day & Ross. Their management group is nothing but 2 faced and if you voice your concerns about something and they don't like it or agree they find a way to get ride of you. I have worked with them in the East and thought it was bad until came to Calgary and this is the worst terminal I ever work at for them. Do not trust anyone in the management group in Calgary cause they will burn you very quick and set you up for failure.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 29 April 2017
You can find better. Pay sucks management sucks even worse. No respect for people. All 2 faced people. The drivers run that company. If you are thinkimg about working here i would seriously rethink that. I worked here for 4 yrs.
Entry level Clerk (Current Employee) – Hartland, NB – 16 April 2017
Repetitive work, not a fun working environment (people don't talk to each other a lot cuz they have a huge work load), low pay considering the work they give you overtime not paid all the time, out dated system (same system for 30 plus years)... most people work here for the same role for years... not a good place to work if your looking for challenges or career development. Not recommended at all
Benefits from 1st day
Low pay, repetitive work, out dated system, no work life balance, terrible working environment
Dock Worker (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 29 March 2017
Day and Ross was job build around team productivity. We connected with one another on brakes and on the doc, this made it easier to know how each individuals minds would think when it came to assembling a trailer or handing various difficult freight.
exellent place to work lots of miles very strict on hours of service and vehicle inspections.
Contract Driver (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 28 March 2017
Runs begin in evening and ends early morning usually switches or pin to pin. Workplace culture everyone is ready or available to help.with any questions or concerns. the hardest part of the job is the usual unplanned road closure or weather. the most enjoyable part of the job is stopping in a scenic area taking a wakl and taking a few pics.
Truck Driver - Class 1 (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 25 February 2017
no pay for waiting time if it's in a remote day&ross yard or any mccain warehouse (mccain is the big company owning day&ross). Prioritization of the loads are very bad. not much load available to single driver as team get loads first even if load is made for a single truck which lead to waiting time away from home up to 3-4 days without pay.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Grand Falls, NB – 30 January 2017
Really good environment for the employee, strong teamwork. I felt valued from the first day I was there. Everything I have to say about my boss and my supervisors, are all great thing. And also I really enjoy the fact that every call you get is different, it makes the day goes by really fast.
