Pharmacy Operations Specialist (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 22 August 2016
The staff and management at Federated Co-op provided a friendly, teamwork oriented workplace environment. Management and staff were enthusiastic about making a positive experience for newcomers. Various departments worked well together and collaboration on projects was generally positive and productive.
Process Operator (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 18 September 2017
Refinery pays like no other in every position on site. Unfortunately this does not create a positive workplace, and I found the overall morale of the workforce to be the worst of any job I have had, including corrections. Misery is a common theme among your co workers, and if you aren't miserable every day as well, good luck succeeding there.
Extremely high pay, even for postions such as warehouse.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Winnipeg – 6 January 2015
I was very well treated and was welcomed by the training staff. Federated Co-op is very safety focused and they really made that a priority. I was treated fairly and i would happily return to Federated co op
Project Centre Coordinator (Former Employee) – St.Paul, AB – 2 December 2014
Between the people you work with and the type of work to help customers at the project centre made this a great place to work. Salary wasn't the highest however the environment and benefits made up for this.
less than average pay for the amount of work expected
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – Canoe, BC – 25 February 2014
A typical day at work on the forklift would be driving around making sure the machines have the required wood to keep productivity going. I have learned how to drive a forklift and operate industrial productivity machinery. I've also learned how to lockout equipment before fixing plug ups/putting belts on etc. The management is fairly good to work for but very unorganized. Co-workers are mostly fun and easy to work with. The hardest part of the job is not being able to move up by your skills, mostly based on seniority. Most enjoyable part of the job would be trying new things and learning new jobs.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 27 September 2012
Basically, you would go in to work and from the minute you start, till the minute you clock out (beside breaks) you have to pick orders to the best of your abilities and have to reach the average which is a certain number of lines by the 10 week period. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the average, most people left or got terminated from the job due to not making average. I learned quite a few things, including basic forklift training, and the use of a powerjack and other useful responsibilities and traits. Now, being it my first time working, I maintained an average that was up to there standards until the last and final week where I came up short.
