Kitchen Designer (Current Employee) – Woodbridge, ON – 17 July 2017
work benefits are very good, but for those who needs it. sometimes it is laborious work, always working and walking on the hard cement floor, and the environment is very dry, may be for the building materials. The hardest part of the job is nasty customers who know that they can complain to the manager anything they want, they lie and manager will try to make customer happy by any ways, some customers want to take that advantage! The most enjoyable part of the job is we can learn a lot of things.
Heavy duty forklift operator (Former Employee) – Malton, ON – 17 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.
Part time lot associate and cashier (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 15 July 2017
The managers did not stick to their words when it came to important things in my life. For example high level baseball I was not able to miss and was told I could take the time off to play but when it came to the days I needed off I was told I could not miss work.

They really work you to the bone for the little wage you get. they give you lots of hours and expect the world of you. But they do give pretty good benefits and they do take care of you which is a plus
Freight Associate (Former Employee) – Ancaster, ON – 9 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).
Too much drama, supervisors will lie and backstab, pay is not great.
