A challenging rewarding company
Marketing Associate (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON9 May 2013
My daily responsibilities was insuring my accounts were taken care of and I was expanding my territory. I learned true customer service by insuring every issue and problem was my problem...if my customers had an issue, then it was my issue.
There was very little opportunity to move ahead. The last year was difficult with so much change. I had three bosses in the last year and very little support in the last 9 months.

The best part of the job is the thrill to help customers. I would enjoy that I helped them out of an emergency or help them with there long term growth.
Pros
good pay
Cons
have to work 6 days a week.

Fast paced environment.
Fork Op, Order Picker. (Current Employee) –  Regina, Sk. Canada7 February 2013
Poor management, favoritism, little regard for customers or low end employees. Only concern seems to be about efficiency(numbers) & not the safety/ well being of the worker. Inadequate training with regard to operating systems. Unable to approach managers with safety concerns or job related issues. Unreasonable expectations in regard to work performance or ability. Unable to understand I.T. personnel who seem to lack the ability to speak the English language & offer little help/support. Warehouse too small to accommodate pallet jacks. Some aisles too narrow for safe fork lift operation. Cracks in warehouse floor & leaky roof are hazards for pedestrians, pallet jack & fork operators. If you're looking for stable, long term employment with little or no stress, then this is not the place for you!
Pros
good pay, benefits.
Cons
management, hours, job security.

exceed physical limit,work very hard or be suspended or terminated!
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB27 April 2012
a typical day in the warehouse floor,is always in a hurry and trying to reach a certain percentage or piece counts just to get a performance bonus $$$, but when they hire temporary foreign worker, they make it a must that your should a certain very high performance (95%) or else you'll be re-trained, suspended or terminated. maybe this is the very reason only temporary foreign worker mostly endure the job here to earn money to be sent home to their love ones. Many time we do not take full breaks or lunch just to continue the job and have high performance.
Pros
performance bonus, free work out, you'll never gain weight even you eat a lot.
Cons
unsafe, mistakes salary deduction, forcing to reach a certain high performance, or be terminated.

Mauvaise gestion d'entreprise
Directeur des opérations (Former Employee) –  Frank and Dino Montréal5 October 2016
Gestionnaire laissé à lui même, sans support et aucune collaboration de la haute direction pour solutionner les problèmes. Beaucoup de politique interne. Bref, l'analogie est applicable à cette organisation. On demande de gagner un grand prix de formule un avec un Go cart. Pas d'outils, pas d'équipe et impossible d'en construire une, seul les chiffres comptent. Voilà!
Pros
aucun
Cons
Trop de politique interne, pas de formation laissé à toi même.

Excelente ambiente de trabajo
CHOFER REPARTIDOR (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB22 April 2016
Esta empresa se dedica a la distrubucion de insumos para cadenas de comida rapida y restaurantes de prestigio.
Me encanto y sorprendio mucho el ambiente dentro de la empresa ya que no hay ningun tipo de envidias, ni discriminacion por parte de los mismos canadienses hacia las demas personas que eramos de diferentes paises.
Yo tenia un turno nocturno de 10 pm a 8 am, yo llegaba al comedor, podia tomar jugo o soda gratis, en ocaciones tenian leche, comida o fruta gratiuta.
Cada quien sabe su trabajo y no tienen que estar detras de uno presionandolo, los companeros si ven que te equivocas en algo te apoyan y orientan, no te dejan que cometas el error para que te reganen o corran.
En general la empresa, verdaderamente cuida mucho su personal, no solo les da una fiesta al ano para tenerlos contentos, trata de que todo el ano esten contentos.

Una gran organización y una muy buena cultura laboral
TECNICO DE MANTENIMIENTO (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB14 March 2013
Cada día se aprendía algo nuevo y se hacían cosas distintas, en el transcurso del turno laboral el jefe se acercaba para motivar a sus trabajadores, se preocupaban por que las personas usaran su equipo de protección y que no les faltara nada en su estadía en el almacén.
Lo que mas me gusto es la organización de el tiempo y el apoyo que me brindaron durante mi estadía en ese trabajo.
La parte mas difícil fue el clima de la ciudad (mucho frío)
Pros
el pago era en dolares y aprendí un poco del idioma ingles
Cons
estaba lejos de mi familia
