Productive Workplace
AM Pre-Loader (Former Employee), Burlington, ONJune 2, 2014
Pros: money, benefits, knowing what to expect every day
Cons: short break, seniority means everything
Overall it was a good place to work with the exception of a couple of co-workers. A typical work day included unloading freight off of trailers as well as loading vans to go out for delivery in the morning. Loading skids and pump truck operating were also a part of an everyday shift. Management overall was pretty good, nice people. The main issue I – more... had with management was unfair expectations for a job they have never performed. All but 2 co-workers were excellent and overall good people which is important in a close-quarters, team-oriented environment.The hardest part of the job was probably the stress of the speed of the job when loading vans with freight constantly coming down the line. Most enjoyable part of the job was just the environment and the people I worked with, everyone was in the same boat so its easy to relate to people. – less

Warehouse Laborer (Former Employee), St, John'sJanuary 12, 2014
Pros: good pay, good people, chances for advancement, good workout
Cons: variating start times
Working at Purolator could be fun if you do your job right. People I worked with were nice and would provide assistance if I has asked. They were a sonority based work area so getting things when I had no sonority was close to impossible. Things being better jobs.

Sorter (Current Employee), Hamilton, ONJanuary 8, 2014
Pros: decent wage, opportunity for more hours
Cons: poor communication between team leaders and management creates a lot of confusion
Days are busy enough to keeps everyone going, which is good because we don't have heat in the warehouse in the -35 degree weather. Pay is often incorrect due to lack of punch cards for a lot of employees

Bad company, ran by monkeys
AM Sorter (Current Employee), WinnipegNovember 28, 2013
Pros: wage
Cons: district manager
The 506 depot is notorious for having bad management for every shift. They force employees to work above and beyond of what is expected. It is not their fault as the district manager calls the shots and if you do not produce he will stretch you a new one. Some managers do not know your name, even if you been there for 2 years.

District Manager always – more... implements his "ideas" to make operations run smooth and efficient, but they backfire make things worse. He has no experience in the warehouse so he doesn't know what he is talking about.

If Purolator changed management and lowered it's account pricing, they would attract more business and not have a high turnover rate. I see in the near future that UPS will buy them out...which is the talk lately.

Other than that the only thing that is great about Purolator are the employees who don't suck on the DM. – less

terrible
sales rep (Former Employee), fort mcmurrayNovember 13, 2013
Cons: everything
typical work day includes beaning belittled from employers
what i learned is that i will never stay at a job that treats people that poorly for such a long time period
management was terrible expecting employees to know what to do and how to do things without any training also fire employees when sick and have to leave work because they are too sick – more... to complete their full shift
the hardest part of the job was dealing with management unrealistic expectations expected to stay after shift is over management changing schedules without notifying employees
the most enjoyable part of the job would be home time – less
