Fun work if you enjoy many things happening at once
Operations (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABApril 17, 2015
Pros: Independent work, Growing Company
Cons: Most times work extends beyond normal operating hours
They are a very productive workforce but don't have the most efficient technology systems and processes in place. Business is booming almost always as they handle a diverse group of clients. You have to be careful on the warehouse floor because some of the longer serving staff have become complacent with old safety standards. For example, a clamp truck carrying a double stack of newsprint rolls weighs a combined weight of 19,000 lbs. and can travel at speeds up to 25km/hr. Needless to say, this can do some serious damage if it were to hit anything. Safety was always my main concern when working there. Secondly, was whether I would get out on time at the end of my shift. It's a busy, busy place, but that is what I found most enjoyable. Oh, and the place is very profitable, so getting bonuses is a nice perk.

Productivity over safety
warehouse (Current Employee), albertaMarch 12, 2015
Pros: good pay and benefits
Cons: lack of safety, gossiping staff, very long hours when ot is needed
A list of MTE Logistix's priorities in order:
1. Above all else - productivity
2. Management giving employees grief over what they deem to be low productivity
3. Gossiping, yes gossiping about co-workers. Even on other shifts
4. And finally, safety

The supervisor on my shift has two golden boy employees that were told information that was none of their business. It happened constantly and seemed to be acceptable and normal to everyone else.

The pay and benefits are good but it's amazing how much turnover there is. It's definitely not a great job. There is a LOT of heavy lifting and when OT is needed, it's mandatory.

What will it take before safety is taken seriously!?
Picker (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABOctober 13, 2014
Pros: co workers are very nice
Cons: management is clueless, safety is a joke
What a terrible place to work! It is so unorganized, Management doesnt care about the employees who are there working day in and day out. They have a safety manual that doesnt even get applied to the warehouse floor. I have witnessed so many near misses and no one gets repremanded for anything. No one gets trained properly, no one listens to anyone except to gossip. It's just such a stressful place to be. One day someone is going to wind up dead and thats gonna be what it takes for some action to have things change

A disorganized mess
Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJune 27, 2013
Pros: easy to find, ample parking
Cons: disorganized, no movement up, no raises, unsafe environment
There is no organization.
Managements' strategy for dealing with high volume? Let the workers deal with it.
Aisle numbers and bin locations are useless since product is located everywhere. When a pallet comes of production it can be slotted anywhere in the building.
Some racks are not bolted down. Some people have been at the same job for 30 years.

The people are good to work with...
Picker (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABDecember 10, 2012
Pros: you got your breaks
Cons: a lot of heavy consistent lifting
the job is always the same--collect your order-- pick your order-- weigh your order--- wrap your order---place your order in the appropriate dock--- do it again
