Driver's assistant "Lumper" (Former Employee), Etobicoke, ON – August 5, 2012
Pros: some days sent home early with full pay
Cons: no job security
Jam solutions is a small company that are truck drivers assistants who work in metro's distribution center. The boses are very friendly and helpful, and if work is done early you get sent home with pay for the full day. The workers often go to the bar after a drink with eachother, and there is a lot of downtime where you get to socialize with co-workers. Job security is not that great and the work is very fast paced with a lot of lifting and a lot of organizing. A typical day involves a bunch of pallets being pulled out by the metro workers that are very high, and you and your co- workers "lump" it down to a level that is standard for the selecters during the night shift.
