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.
