IT Department Manager (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 18 February 2017
Appreciated the ability to make a difference by being empowered to contribute to all aspects of work life Typically worked day shift but flexed to meet responsibilities Learned how to use background and interests to grow and assume more responsibility Culture was the best. People where challenged and supported - they were led not managed Hardest part of the role was putting up with mediocrity - it took a while to change some employees I most enjoyed leading the Quality and Reliability Improvement work that saved ~ $6MM in one year with no site investment costs while involving all operating technicians in the improvement role
Productive and fun to work, great brand portfolio to represent, great work-life balance.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 April 2013
Sign into store, check if management is present for various departments and let them know you are there, walk the store for any opportunities for display or concerns, open conversation, present new info or promos, check program compliance or things that need to be done that is on the priority list, address any concerns, ask for what you want like display, close the sale. I learn alot on a continuous basis from managers in my accounts, managers and team leads from P&G, I learn to challenge myself more. I enjoy seeing my accounts on a monthly basis and look forward to offering them my passion and knowlege in the industry to help grow sales. The most enjoyable part of the job is talking about new and exciting product launches and getting new technology to make our jobs more efficient, easier, and effective. For example using the ipads in each sales call in the last 2 years.
great benefits, free product, not to be micro-managed, represent an awesome brand portfolio that i believe in, great ethics and values to be a part of.

Working for such a globally recongnized company made you feel important
Forklift Technician (Former Employee) – Belleville, ON – 19 February 2013
-Typical day at work was generally long, quick turn-around from nights (630pm-7am) to days (630am-7pm). -Just like in all work places some management was amazing, others lacked interpersonal skills. -Hardest part of the job was the quick turn arounds from nights to days, and the 12.5 hr shifts, which left you with hardly and family time. -Best part of the job was being part of a team that works for a globally recognized company, and seeing your results within the company.
the company is more safety oriented than any other i have worked for. decent wages.
long days, rotating continental shifts leave hardly any time for family, minimal benefits unless you are permanent full-time
good place to work, steady hours and great routine

Lead Receiver (Former Employee) – Mississauga – 6 December 2012
fast paced buisness, learned a lot about distribution during my time there, management was fair and flexible, strong relationship with close knit team of co-workers, most enjoyable was doing a good job and seeing my results at the end of the day.
many pros, was a great job
got laid off due to change in how they wanted to run the buisness
I really enjoyed all of my customers. We could always accomplish by working together. When you visit stores on a regular basis, you get to know them and they get to know you. This is very important to get the job done.
The hardest part I would say is if our HO would make errors (shipment did not show up on time etc..), but usually this did not happen very often. Would just have to go with the flow and try to get corrected.
I really enjoyed the flexibility of this job. No evenings or weekends. We normally had a time frame to complete projects and was always easy to schedule.
working in london, great customer base.
on occasion, when a reline was not given the correct amount of time due to planner error..
