Report Analyst (Former Employee) – Philippines – 3 November 2015
Busy day with all kinds of reports. Learned a lot about MS Office applications specifically excel and a bit of SQL Database creation. Do not approve of the decisions made by the management since most of it caused resignation from the front liners. Love my co-workers, they keep me sane.
Do not always treat staff fairly in regards to position or salary
Jr Managment (Current Employee) – ON – 16 October 2015
Most of the staff are over worked, very underpaid and have little Senior Management support. There is not much room for advancement, nor is any one encouraged to do so. This company seems to be more about the numbers in this transition and care less about proper job title/responsibilities/salary alignments. Good points are the co-workers that are still there are great people.
Good people for the most part
very poor support from senior level management or HR

Machine Operator - Cherry Picker & Double Walkie (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 14 October 2015
I had a good time working for Ingram Micro. The management was decent while working night shifts, the work was busy but they didn't force you to work like an animal but rather work the best as you can!
Fast pace, completive business sector and constantly changing demands
Senior Manager of Accounts Payable (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 9 October 2015
In response to the expulsive growth of the computer and technology information (IT) industry beginning in the early 1990’s, the company grew rapidly. The competitive nature of the distribution business demanded constant changes in order to differentiate and take advantage of market share. The environment was challenging but also provided the opportunity personal development and career advancement. Management was very supportive of associate’s development through training and promotion.
Then came the decline in the computer and IT sector which lead to reduced profit margins, the need to outsource and lay-offs. Those of us who were fortunate to retain our jobs had the benefit to travel for work to train and develop associates in other regions and cultures.
Work/life balance was a major challenge, more so with the advent of laptop and cellphone, but I enjoyed every aspects of the job. I looked forward daily to the interaction with my colleagues and vendor representation to resolve issues. Although some of the trips were gruesome, I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated the cultural exchanges. The most fulfilling part of the job was training, coaching and mentoring: especially new hires, the outsource providers and co-op students.
Variety of things to do, opportunity to develop new skills, latitude to be innovative and non-combative working environment
Competitive nature of the business, corporate objectives demand and job uncertainity.
Fast pace, constant changing and competitive business environment
Senior Manager of Accounts Payable (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 22 September 2015
The company grew in ten years from $250M to $2B in sales. That pace of grwoth created opportunities for personal development and career advancement. Overtime we lost the benefits of the intimacy of the small group to an expanse global corporate structure. That was not all bad because a lot of subject matter experts had the privilege to work in other countries to share their expertise and gain a wealth of knowledge from the other side.
Some of my fondest memories include the annual picnics, exposure to the different cultures of the countries to which I traveled and the fun we shared at the offsite department lunches. As well as the interaction with my vendor partners.
The rewarding opportunities to develop and utilize my knwoledge and skills
The stress from the constant pressure to meet the corporate financial objectives
Raymond Reach Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 11 August 2015
I would operate the Raymond Reach truck to pick orders using a RF scanner. After picking and completing the order I would wrap the pallets and stage them in the designated area. I would also do inventory cycle counts to make sure the quantity of the porducts in locations match accordingly to the system. Always maintain a clean and safe work environment.
Associate (Current Employee) – Mississauga – 8 July 2015
Ingram micro has fast paced working Environment. I started in this company from Agency. After sometimes management hired me as part time permanent. I started to get benefits too. After that management accessed my work performance and hired me as permanent associate. As mentioned in my Resume I do order picker, billing, packaging, Inventary
General Light Labor (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 19 March 2015
All aspects of the job are typically what you would expect, except for management.
Allow me to preface this review by saying I had a part time, temporary position as a picker only. I received this job offer through a work agency.
Management They're pushy, commanding, and essentially terrible at their job.
Temp employees such as myself, wore nametags. These served no purpose, as management would literally snap their fingers and exclaim "HEY! I need you." to get your attention, followed by a come here motion without even making eye contact. Terrible communication as a whole.
I had taken the job as a picker only, but management demands that you fulfill other tasks as well, jobs not in your job description. Expect to do 4-5 other jobs around the warehouse as the management please, with no bonus compensation. All with the same aggressive demanding "HEY!"
Other - Major intersection of Hurontario and Britannia West.
- Regular bus routes are close by. If you do take public transit, keep in mind the walking time from your stop. For me it was a good 10 minutes.
- For your lunch options, there's a Wendy's/Tim Hortons, and a Subway restaurant along Hurontario. Ingram Micro is far enough that even on your lunch break, you can only really eat at these places if you drive with a car.
- Parking spots seem to be ample.
- The majority of the lockers are located in the washrooms, which were all completely used by full time employees. Personal belongings such as watches and cellphones aren't allowed past the revolving door, so you'll load them in an envelope andmore... give them to security to hold. You can also put them in your car, if you have one.
- Absolutely zero free lockers for my own temp group meant storing our lunches in the communal fridge. I never really ate lunch or stored mine there, but there's a glaring risk of someone stealing your lunch, or worse, an allergy accident.
Overall Normally I'm a patient person, but it's been tested when I worked there. Please, save yourself the headache and reconsider working for the management at Ingram Micro.less
