Warehouse Assistant (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 23 September 2013
. My typical day at work is slow, the receiver got to scan every box one by one with its scanner and put a label on it and place it on a pallet afterwards.
. I didn't learn anything new. What I am doing now is basically the same of what I did in the past ware housing jobs.
. The management at the work place is not good at all. They receive more then they can handle in a 8 hour shift. There is always a day or two of work that they get on one day. The company should hire more receivers to get the work done more faster.
.For the co-workers, they only care about themselves and not the lumbers (helpers) that help them to unload trucks. sometimes the co-workers take over an hour to do a pallet, they start doing it and they do something else for a whiles and come back to it.
. The hardest part of the job is sometimes patience for when the receiver is not there. I can not get the job done without the receiver.
.The most enjoyable part of the job is when there is only one or a few orders on a pallet. It gets done very fast.
free lunch every now and then, Done work early on some days
The reciever goes away, I can not get the work done. messy outside the building, slow paste
Business Development Rep (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 1 January 2017
McKesson is the best company I have ever worked for and I regret each day that I resigned to pursue another opportunity. The management team is very supportive and does not micromanage. The benefit package and salary are fair.
The company has many opportunities for advancement and encourages internal employee advancement
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Trenton, ON – 16 March 2017
Every day was typically the same but extremely enjoyable. Everyone was easy to talk to and friendly. Nobody was nervous to lend you a helping hand if needed. Management was easy going and if you had a problem there was no need to be scared to bring up the topic to your supervisor because they were extremely understanding. The hardest part of this job was how fast everything was to be done but after awhile it became second nature.
Case worker (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 15 January 2017
Very bad management, all of them are hungry for power and money; most of them will step on dead bodies to get what they want; .. if you don't rub shoulders with upper management it doesn't matter how hard you work, you will be invisible. Meaningless meetings so called "to get to know each other" but in fact is for management to emphasize how "wonderful" they are and generous with "small" people.
Job was fine, bad timing at location, bad managers.
MATERIAL HANDLER (Former Employee) – Trenton, ON – 24 March 2017
Supervisors were rotating through frequently bringing in new and mostly favoring women in horrendous ways. Eventually it became about 70% women, with the few men there doing all the hard work. Employees were usually good to work with, it was a matter of supervisors being terrible in many ways.
Despite supervisors, it was a great job at the DC in Trenton, just a little too political and too far favoring women.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 May 2016
I had a nice co-workers. The payment was no bad. That position was really hard and worked under pressure and sometimes no co-workers enough. Management was really nice but when I needed to try LOA for 3 weeks to solve some problems in my country they didn't agree. After that I left that job. I didn't like because at that time I had 2 weeks for vacation and I just needed for only 1 week for LOA.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 15 October 2015
-Taking inbound calls for orders, credits, complaints, returns, shipping issues, website support etc. Despite the demands of a heavy workload, the manager of the department can be discriminatory, prejudiced and biased in her management approach; particularly when there is conflict between employees. The culture allows for senior reps to verbally abuse new employees without any corrective action. I would not recommend applying for this department.
