If your looking for job security and a very enjoyable work environment, this could be the place for you. They have all the social benefits you would come to expect and a nice on site gym. But this comes at the expense of a competitive salary. My advice would be to negotiate hard for higher pay at your job interview since from then on what they give you is what you get. They are pretty firm on their given salaries and don't like to adjust or negotiate.
Relaxed work environment, on site gym/squash court, casual dress
Poor warehouse management on the upper and mid level, no communication, not much balance between family and work available, warehouse manager not personable time for her and her husband to retire, warehouse management is a uneducated control freak and does not know what she is doing, management does not listen to employees.
Key Account Manager (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 7 June 2017
Great business model, warehouse and products but management is authoritarian. Upper management is all different families that had their businesses bought out and stayed under contract. So lots of conflicts and very narrow thinking. They need new innovative faces in upper management.
management will not allow you to execute, hard to bring on new customers, hard to do business with due to paperwork and massively high turn around
KEY ACCOUNT MANAGER (Former Employee) – South Edmonton,ab – 12 November 2015
Customers have always been my focus, with that being said, it was a difficult position to be in, when logistics and management structure were absent on many occasions. It was unfortunate that all 4 sales staff members left within weeks of my leaving the company.
it was nice working there but till the company had to move then alot of stuff started to go slow, the hardest part was to honestly find somthing to do when there wasn much into the new builduing besides that its a typical day at work
Inventory Controller / Forklift Driver (Former Employee) – St anne de bellview Montreal QC – 4 October 2014
(My typical day at work) Auditing stocks, using RF device to pick orders. Driving forklift to pick stock. Driving Raymond Reach to count stock. Packing orders for client. Finding missing stock and adjusting quantities. (What I learned) I can do it all. (Management) Great managers. (Co-workers) Friendly. (Hardest part of the job) Getting paid what I deserve. (Most enjoyable part of the job) The flexibility of the different tasks I am able to do in one day.
Tenaquip is a decent place to work. In my position as a desktop publisher, I find that I am given the space to do my work in a fairly autonomous way. I confer with my manager when necessary, but only when there is a rush job do things get hectic. I mean, I'm allowed to listen to music as I work, and that's great. The benefits are top-notch. An excellent health and drug plan that includes dental. The company has invested a lot in work/life balance programs that are at the disposal of the employees. The company also runs a profit sharing plan, which is great. There are only a few glaring downsides to the company. One, it doesn't pay much. It's a common complaint from employees. Also, vacation time maxes out at three weeks after five years. Perhaps the biggest drawback though is the fact that the office is incredibly inconvenient to get to if you don't have a car. It's on the western tip of the island of Montreal and public transit does not serve the area very often. There are rush hour buses during the week and a commuter train stop about a 15 minute walk away, but you better have a car.
