Management Trainee (Current Employee) – Southern Alberta – 1 December 2017
Lot of support for self development. Opportunities to grow and move through the company. Training is provided and self development is encouraged. Salaries are competitive and the EMCO profit sharing can be very large based on performance. Can work long hours but it is with great people. Fun customer focused culture.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 16 September 2017
This was by far the worst place I ever worked at!! in order to make it anywhere within the company one would have to be within the inner circle of the management and if you fell out of that inner circle your time there was very short.
Slow most days
Long hours, management is horrible, pay is horrible
Sales Development Trainee (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 1 August 2017
I joined Emco as a Sales Development trainee. It's been almost a year since I started working here and I have nothing but positive things to say. Having no industry experience, I started in the warehouse and worked my way up to a counter/inside sales role. Everyone works together as a team to get the job done and uphold the values of the company. We are rewarded for hard work and treated generously by management. If you are looking to start a career with ample opportunity to grow, you should consider applying for roles within Emco.
Profit Centre Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 May 2017
It is an Entrepreneurial work environment with lots of growth opportunities fro growth for the right fit. Not for all pay structure. Pays third segment with Profit share that for Branches outside the main locations or smaller locations can do well for payouts.
you will be expected to long hours without pay and partake in work related activities outside of regular working hours without pay and if you don't you will not last long there. a lot of the employees are family related and are treated much differently then the ones that are not.
better then no job
lots of hours without pay & very low standards of treatment of employees by warehouse manager
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 9 March 2017
Do not go here unless you like being made to feel unworthy.Manager thinks too much of himself-should retire and do us all a favour. They can not keep employees because they do not know how to treat employees with respect.
Driver (Former Employee) – Huxley road – 2 February 2017
I did not know that places like this still were around. Used fear as form of control, very Rasict supervisor with jokes and lots of billing from older staff. No money spent on safety using profit sharing as reason no over time pay they said you get time off instead that you were never able to take. Very high stress I have truly never seen such a company in my life. Horrible experience tramtising even.
Were do I start please find reaserch before you work there ask if there is new people in charge
Senior buyer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 9 November 2016
Over qualified for the Senior buyer position. Wanted more buying lines, Had my work and buying responsibilities completed by noon each day. Purchasing Manager did not want to give away any of his buying responsibilities.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 March 2016
Emco was, in my opinion, a decent place to work. The hours were great and the pay was a little below average but the work environment and people i worked with made it all worth while. However, I do not recommend this company if you are any kind of parent. I was absent from work 2 times in a given year due to illness of a special needs 2 year old and was treated very poorly my my manager for not being able to just drop him off with a baby sitter.
The best, most generous company & people I've ever worked for/with.
Receptionist / Amin. Assistant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 9 February 2016
Emco Corporation, Branch 745 is by far the best, most fair, most fun place I have every worked thus far. The staff in every department are absolutely fantastic, they made every day enjoyable. Emco, the corporation really takes care of their employees, with all of the benefits they offer their employees. The work is great, there is always a whole lot to do, never a dull moment. I miss it/them so much.
