Description of working for Thomson Tremblay
Monteur de pallettes (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 27 May 2016
A typical day at Thomson Tremblay: Entrepôt de Dollarama was arriving and punching before 7a.m. You have to make at least 15-20 palettes a day and it is not as easy as we think. I learned that you have to put all the heavy boxes on the ground of the palette and lighter boxes going up. I also learned that you have to make sure to put every number section in the right palette, because if you get on wrong, you can have big problems. The management was quite good. Co-workers, some of them were friendly and helpful, others were always mad and whining. The hardest part of this job is to make a palette even when there small boxes only coming to your section. However, you have to wait until bigger and heavy boxes come to make it easier. The most enjoyable part of the job is when there is an hour left to work, because after a long day, you can't wait to be done and it motivates you to push through to the limit and make the most palette you can before finishing.
