High Stress job. Not for everyone
Clerk Level II (Current Employee) –  Edmonton13 December 2016
The pay is fairly good being over $23/hr. Perks including police cats who will keep you sane. Cons are a generally toxic social environment where people talk poorly about everyone else around them, regular office stuff so I hear.
Pros
Cats, Free entertainment
Cons
Gossipy environment, Superiors have different rules

Don't work there.
Customer Service Representative/Clerk II (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB8 August 2013
Managers are terrible. Advancement only to friends or those who have been there 10+ years. Doesn't go by skill level.

Management have no idea how to manage and leave when they want but grill others if they don't finish lunch in time, lack of respect.
Pros
union gives decent pay grades, work is easy
Cons
boring as hell. See paragraph.

Good Environment To Work
Fijian Cultural Association - Valued Member (Current Employee) –  EDM.AB5 December 2014
I had a day where we got shipped wrong item from China, and I shipped to customer without checking what was inside. After customer call back and told us about the product, I got in trouble but that was the first time I did so all our management and co-workers got together and solve the problems. The hardest part of my job is sometimes when things get busy and you u don't have extra hand and the enjoyable part of work is when your days are over.
Pros
Free beverages
