Lumber yard / distribution center
Heavy duty forklift operator (Former Employee) –  Malton, ON17 July 2017
During the summer and winter seasons, this place is busy and keeps you going for the entire 8-10 hour shift . Its well organised and the lift trucks are decent, the people are team oriented and will help you when needed, as will the lead hand / supervisor. The pay could be much better being at 14-15 an hour and is roughly 17-18 on average for heavy lift operators.
Pros
Great people to work with
Cons
low average pay scale

review by Dustin
Customer services assistant (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB13 July 2017
it was a amazing job with plethora of different tasks, this was my first costumer service associate type job outside of work experience. this was a job that required you to be physically fit. you pushed around long lines of carts in all types of weather.

you helped costumers carry there things t there vehicles, operated pallet jacks. helped with stock and inventory. took computer tests. sweeped up large portions of the parking lot.

used large heavy tools to break down massive crates, and was also part of a highly competent team.
Pros
good pay, stable hours.
Cons
none

nightshift employee
Freight Associate (Former Employee) –  Ancaster, ON9 July 2017
Night shift work included getting various freight from the truck brought to which ever department you had been stationed at. Then you would replenish empty spots with new products the rest was stored above. You would then fill any empty spots with products if possible. Stocking shelves essentially. If skilled on the machines you would use forklift for lumber or seasonal dept. Reach and or order pickers for anywhere else. I learned plenty about store operations and the details that one has to pay attention to when replenishing products in the store.
People generally had been kind, however several supervisors seem to have an agenda. The Asm's for the most part sided with the supervisors if situations came up. Alot of politics and drama going on.
Hardest part was to be neutral and just focus on the job and not get involved in the drama.
Most enjoyable was operating the vehicles(forklift,reach,orderpicker).
Pros
Good benefits.
Cons
Too much drama, supervisors will lie and backstab, pay is not great.

Good environment, reasonably good perks but weak management.
Overnight Freight Associate (Former Employee) –  Port Coquitlam, BC8 July 2017
The co-workers are nice and helpful. Management takes care of employees by arranging lunch or other stuff once a week. Managing decisions, however, are weak and instead of resolving problems people pass them down to the next shift.

Went through quite a few managers and some of them sucked. Basic retail job, got moved around too much. Took experts out of their departments and put them in areas they had no interest in.
Pros

Typical retail, hardly any full-time positions ever came up

Hours given are not what was promised at interview
Paint Associate (Former Employee) –  Oshawa, ON8 July 2017
I was looking for part time work and was not wanting to work every weekend because I had other obligations, this was discussed during my interview. The schedule was as discussed during training but once the honeymoon was over so were the required shifts. I also found management very cliquish and did not hesitate to show who was their favourites. The job itself however was fun and I really enjoyed the customers. The training was decent as well.
Pros
Training
Cons
hours
