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
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 September 2012
A typical day at work for me consists of answering anywhere from 500 to 850 calls per day, and allocating them to the proper locations within the branch or to other branches throughout the city. As well, processing and checking upwards of 900+ invoices per day. I've learned so much with this company. Firstly, and most proudly, I've learned to better my communication skills, and my understanding with any and all personality types I encounter. Whether it be customers or co-workers, I encounter all types, from angry, to disgruntled, to happy, to unsure, and so on. I've learned to listen to two things at once and comprehend both that I am listening to, and respond appropriately. I've greatly enhanced my ability to multitask. Although it is said multitasking is not real, it cannot happen, I don't believe that for a second. I do it every day, all day. Without it, I would never get all my work done. The hardest part of the job may seem a bit trivial to some, but for me it's so very important, and something I hope will be rectified with meetings and possibly training. There is a great lack of appreciation for a job well done, extra work completed, overtime worked. I do all of these, (The overtime worked I do not get paid for, nor do I get time in lieu, it's all on my time that this is done.), not because I want a pat on the back each time I do something, that would be awkward and insincere. I do all of these things because I want to contribute what I can to keep my co-workers and supervisors happy and content that when they need something from what I'm doing, it is easily accessible.more... It makes their stress load a bit less. I like to see happy people, and will always do my best to ensure that happens with the people around me. A simple thank you once in a while would do wonders for me, but that never happens. I only hear something they want to complain about, and what is done properly, correctly, and in order right in front of their faces is completely ignored. It's hard to hear the bad all the time, especially when it's made up just because the person needs something to complain about and someone to vent on, and never hear the good. What you hear is "just do it, you get profit sharing.". The most enjoyable part of my job is helping others. Whether it be customers and/or co-workers, I love the ability of being able to assist and hopefully put the smile on everyone's face that I encounter. As well, I enjoy so much that my job is so busy all the time. There is no time to be a clock watcher at all. As well, it's a daily challenge I set for myself, to accomplish a bit more each day than I did the day previous. It makes it fun.less
lack of appreciation shown for any and all duties performed, even extra ones.
