Forklift driver (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 17 April 2017
This is an okay job if your starting out and you want to learn how a warehouse environment works but would not stay here long term management is not good and turn over rate is very high people usually work here only 6 months to 1 year.
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Lower Mainland, BC – 15 April 2017
Eecol Electric is an awesome company to work for I wish that I had found this company earlier in my working career. I find that Eecol is very fair to those that come to work. Management spots and assists those areas that need Improvement with training. If you like a friendly environment, an opportunity to create a long-lasting career with a balanced family life then this is a great opportunity. Salaries offered meet national average. Extended Medical is a great benefit. Opportunities to better oneself is a another great benefit as Eecol offers platform for growth providing you come to work and not come to a social Gathering. If you truly wish to better yourself then this company is the one that offers a window of opportunity, Work Safe,Smart and rewards exist. Stand around,loaf about, interfere chatting with co-workers continuously this is not the place. Every employee is responsible for contributing to their own success which means smart hard work has its Rewards Careers are not built overnight. takes time and effort to seek out a path that is right for oneself. Eecol Electric offers an environment that is conducive to every person who wishes to put in the effort. I welcome you to come and become one of my workmates but please remember, don't stand around chatting while you're on the job. It is no good for me and certainly no good for you. EXPECTATIONS are that we come to work not socialize .
Great starting Salaries, great hours, Clean safe work environment. no tolerance for socialization while working.
Warehouseman (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 19 December 2016
Always busy with work to do. It is of utmost importance to pay close attention to details. Management is very flexible. Co-workers are friendly. The most enjoyable part was the lack of stress in this environment.
Driver, Warehouseman (Former Employee) – NE store – 1 September 2016
As a driver, for me it was very busy. Leaving to make my first drop usually at 8 am and was busy all the way to closing. Learned how to operate both sit-down and stand-up forklifts. Learned how to load and unload material from other truck and trailers.
Had contests sometimes where I won both a TV and Video player
Trying to please the sales people who were sometimes very demanding
Former EECOL employee (Former Employee) – BC – 22 July 2016
The company used to have great morals, standards and ideas. After Wesco bought EECOL the company has gone down the drain. They don't adhere to the promises they make you any more. They keep trying to downsize via laying employees off, but expect the same amount if not more work done. Raises are barely enough to make any difference. Some supervisors and power hungry and cruel, some managers are just there to collect their large pay cheque.
Some people are great, pay is above minimum wage, regular hours, some opportunity for overtime
Overworked, not enough staff, some managers and employees don't want to do their work (which in turn affects your work), some people are extremely difficult to work with, they will hire from outside the company for higher positions instead of hiring from within.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 23 May 2016
Eecol was a fun place to work for a while. Had great employs but had a lot of layoffs which caused problems with productivity. which in the end caused everyone to do things beyond there job description.
utility inside sales specialist (Former Employee) – Calgary AB – 28 December 2015
Eecol was not bad to work for. I worked my way up the ranks pretty quickly. in a year and half I went from order picker to pick up counter to counter to inside sales. I thought I was on my way to a promising career until I was recently laid off...
Out of town shipping supervisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, Alberta – 24 September 2015
It is unfortunate that i was laid off. I was grateful to have given my time to this company. I thought there was room for growth & advancement, especially at the managorial level. Wait... is 'managorial' even a word?
OFFICE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 20 June 2015
My day consisted of covering reception first thing in morning and then start to balance the cash sales from previous day. I also did freight and expediting. My day was usually pretty busy with things to do in between.
The people I worked with were wonderful but the managers did not respect thier employees.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 22 January 2014
It was a 7:30am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday job with an hour for lunch. Day consisted of receiving stock and putting it in location. Everyday was really busy and seemed like there was never a way to get everything done. Eecol is staffed very thin and their is not enough people to run the warehouse so the expectations for things to be completed were extremely too high. Management was found to be unproductive. No respect was given and emplyees were treated poorly for all the effort they put in. When it came to emplyee conflict management did not do what they could to resolve to issue. Co-worker were wonderful. They were high spirted and helpful. Hardest part of the job was trying to keep u with expectations. Best part was conversing with co-workers and customers
