Admin (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 29 December 2013
A company with great growth potential but too focused on micromanagement and inexistent succession plan. The opportunities of advancement are directly subjective to one of the top manager's empiric criteria; which means someone will advance within the company only if such manager “thinks” the candidate can handle the job, instead of encouraging people to apply for it and go through the whole screening process in order to determine his/her previous experience, set of skills, and qualifications. Some shifts are overloaded of work; for instance, there is a high pressure to earn impossible speeds to realize the daily tasks in order to finish them before the end of the shift. Their technology system is very obsolete, they use more than one system to control the inventory and most inventory movements are done manually, which represents a high risk for human error; however, ZERO mistakes are tolerated.
Overall pad pay for the amount of work.
Work load so heavy that most of the time is impossible to take breaks
