Unsafe warehouse environment & management has no direction
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, ABFebruary 10, 2016
The warehouses are poorly run, unsafe racking not bolted down and even dangerous incidents have occurred in warehouses and management has still not changed anything because the focus on productivity and profit is too great. Management puts stress on zero incidents but "incidents" are classified as shipping incorrect product , being late, and employees missing days etc... Employees are stressed out and worried about their jobs on a daily basis as employees are giving no unpaid time off for sick time or medical emergencies. If an unpaid day off is taken, employees are suspended without pay for their absences.
Co-workers are mostly nice and good to work with but the culture of this company encourages employees to backstab and sell each other out to advance within the company or look good to management because of the unrealistic expectations that management has set in terms of productivity and daily tasks.
Pros
Pay is alright
Cons
You may not have a job tomorrow

Typical day was receiving an order of a specified number and type of beer to place on a pallet, picking the order and staging the order in the appropriate bay.

Fun work if you enjoy many things happening at once
Operations (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, ABApril 17, 2015
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.
Pros
Independent work, Growing Company
Cons
Most times work extends beyond normal operating hours

Productivity over safety
warehouse (Current Employee) –  albertaMarch 12, 2015
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.
Pros
good pay and benefits
Cons
lack of safety, gossiping staff, very long hours when ot is needed

What will it take before safety is taken seriously!?
Picker (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, ABOctober 13, 2014
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
Pros
co workers are very nice
Cons
management is clueless, safety is a joke

A disorganized mess
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, ABJune 27, 2013
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.
Pros
easy to find, ample parking
Cons
disorganized, no movement up, no raises, unsafe environment
