they demand loyalty from their employees but when it comes to loyalty from the company to their employees they do not know how to correspond in kind,
Draftsman / Document Control Specialist (Former Employee) – Lake Forest, CA – 27 April 2017
a typical day at work was continuing with anything that was not completed the day before, or checking with the supervisor for the next project, at black & Decker the drafter were confined to doing drafting, so did not learn anything (I already knew Mechanical Drafting) aside from my supervisor I had no contact with management, the work culture is great because they give the support needed
yearly picnic, Team Building activities
long hours when a project had to be done by a certain date

Product Specialist (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 21 October 2016
I worked here for three months. Apart from the management, The staff were great and helpful. If it weren't for the managment then I would definitely recommend anyone to apply there. I learned a lot being a product specialist dealing with customers as well as learning different systems such as SAP to view stocks and cash out customers.
Multiple positions (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 9 September 2016
I learned a lot of transferable skills such as communication, time management, mentoring and leadership as well as hard skills like Warehouse management system, RF scanning technology. Co-workers are fun and friendly. Very Multi-cultural environment! Hardest part is commute. Most enjoyable part: being able to work in a positive environment (most of the time) music is often allowed. Management is wishy washy, too many people trying to be or act like management as well mixed messages get sent. Communication on that level is not that great.
Provided free lunches, and incentives for doing OT (even above the pay)
day shift is very early for a commuter, punch clock system.
Marketing Executive (Former Employee) – united arab emirates – 16 August 2016
Very friendly and supportive environment to work in. Learnt a lot from my immediate boss. A lot of team building events organized by the company to encourage team dependence and efficient working skills.
Canadian Finance (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 7 August 2016
The Mississauga head office is generally a so-so place to work at.
Pros include decent co-workers, compensation generally in-line with the market and a brand name that external companies recognize
Cons are a bit longer.... -Incredibly incompetent senior management team, specifically in the Canadian finance department with top management generally clueless about even the simplest of finance concepts, along with top management clearly playing favourites (ignoring everyone else) -US counterparts can be a handful to deal with -General lack of direction/motivation/long-term vision within the organization...seems to be a month by month operation (strat plan is a joke) -Forget about career progression here; company is pretty lean and has not been growing notably for a number of years (layoffs, on the other hand, happen on a fairly regular basis)
Long story short, I don't regret my time here but I would definitely not recommend this place to anyone who is competent and has the ability to look for something better at a more dynamic organization.
Very welcoming environment with great flexability.
Distribution Associate (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 17 May 2016
The work pace can be very face paced but the ability to balance the job so easily with my personal life made it a very easy environment to adapt to. Although much of the work can have very little interaction with other employees there is a profound sense that everyone is working together.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 10 February 2016
Great environment to work in. Great team work and management. It was definitely a place that I was looking forward to retiring with. your efforts and great work were always recognized. Wish there were more room for advancement
Truck unloader (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 16 April 2015
I would start my day with a nice cup off coffee, and show up for work around 6:00am sometimes even earlier. If I am early, I would wait in the eating room and drink my coffee. When my shift starts, I would then goto the back of the warehouse, and see how many trucks we had to unload for the day. We would then start unloading products off of the trucks and stacking them on skids. My co-workers were all friendly people and it made the days go by quicker. The hardest part of the job, would be when you were at the back of the truck it would get really hot. The most enjoyable part would be that we could listen to the radio while we unloaded the trucks and that would also make the days go by quicker.
Service Administrator (Former Employee) – Decker, MB – 4 February 2015
A good mix of people, training was provided and learned a lot. Busy environment. The only problem with this company is stayed on too long on a temporary assignment, no benefits, pay was low scale and work load was very challenging at times. Nice People, a U.S. based company. They are currently ironing out Canada's location at the moment and headcount is being looked at and downsizing. Enjoyed my three years at Stanley. I enjoyed working with Distributors and meeting their needs.
