Promising in beginning but then Negativity hits the fan.
Forklift Operator/Order Picker (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 24 July 2017
Beginning was great and really promising but then stress hits the fan. Cost cost cost. Don't get fooled by safety screaming everyday cause at the end it comes down to COST, or should i say lines per Hour. Management is constantly looking ways to improve numbers but they don't listen to their workers. Micromanaging all the time. Why are you doing this why not that. Not even for one second they actually believe i was there to do the job in any way possible despite all the obstacles in the warehouse. Lack of proper training, time and organization to do the job. Last minute orders and warehouse is not properly sized for product. Pros are benefits and job security.
If you can last at least week to 3 weeks you are good
Warehouse Operator (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 16 September 2017
Pros Great employees that work on floor, some are fun to work with and just good co-workers Good Benefits once you are hired if you reach 3 months Pay for machine operator are good, minimum for packer and receiver overtime every day after you get hired, and almost every month weekend work you must be prepared for that
Cons -Very BAD Leadership, from the top to bottom, including HR (MB account) -Macromanaged environment -it is all about numbers if you can't pick fast enough or putaway fast you be fired -they say that they welcome suggestions, as soon you make one, you become the problem because you don't like what they do, and eventually, you be fired, or they will make your life miserable, and toss you around like a rock and you get sick of it and quit -If you think you are hired to do one job be prepared to do a lot of multitasking especially if you are a machine operator, picking/putaway and even packing -you need to be physically fit as automotive parts are heavy, you pick and put away all day no stoppage it is numbers driven the company -Constant changes on floor, due to poor leadership thinking, unable to decide and sustain the change -there are no opportunities for advancement period. If they promised they lied. -sometimes too much overtime, and weekend work if you refuse too many times you are a problem, you are not a team player, (99% work, 1% family) -if you take a sick day you have an issue and you be called to an office - too many accidents, in last 9 months 3 serious accidents and 5 not recordable due to workload and overtime hours and a shortagemore... of manpower, those that stick around are tired -high turnover rate, I would say easy 200 to 300 employees pass thru the place very high for this companyless
Clamp operator (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 20 April 2017
Terrible work/life balance. They expect you to work long days and weekends constantly. Management has no clue how to run a warehouse. They just have freight and damages everywhere. Don't waste your time.
Long hours, always want more productivity, management doesn't care about employees
Truck Driver (Current Employee) – Milton, ON – 15 February 2017
My day would start with pre-trip of my assign truck, then get my paperwork for my delivery. I would hook up to my trailer, do the pre-trip on it. After I would fill up the paperwork needed, and then I would go do my delivery. Once my delivery is done I would go back to my terminal and grab my next delivery. It was a day shift, between 10 to 14 hours
Receiver (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 9 March 2016
I enjoyed working here mainly because it was very easy to transition into the work atmosphere because everyone was welcoming and helpful. The hard part of the job was having to meet deadlines and staying consistent, and you have to be a quick learner. The most enjoyable part of the day was coming to work and having a meeting as to what are goals for today and ways we can improve from yesterday.
Inflexible Schedule because my schedule would affect other commitments
good pay, but not worth the stress put on you by magement
warehouse associate (Current Employee) – Mississauga – 21 September 2015
great coworkers not so great management. poor organization of the warehouse. favoritism is very apparent in the workplace, those who work hard and do excellent quality work are not properly recognized and those who lie and cheat are rewarded with promotions.
very self satisfying job if you know how to do it properly.
US based 3PL company. Good place to work growing always make sure that client needs get completed.
Warehouse Supervisor (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 13 June 2015
I have staff of 20 associate. My days start with making the work plans for the day and make sure all the targets get completed timely. I learned good communication skills how to deals with co-worker how to make a strong team give preference to client needs and make sure every staff member are safe.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Mississauga ON – 19 February 2015
The overall culture and moral at this company is extremely poor. Constant overtime 60 per week every week that isnt compensated in any way. No training and the disconnect between the upper management and the floor staff is appauling. Worst company I have ever been associated with.
life balance/work, training, culture, disfunctional
