QC, forklift driver, laborer (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 14 January 2013
This agency has an internal turnover that is alarming to the employable...they change over managers so often, that every time I'd personally go in, there would be another person there I didn't know and would have to annoyingly go through my file again as if I was just applying...
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 8 May 2017
At universal staffing the staff did an excellent job of making me feel as though I fit in. They helped me when I was having trouble and vice versa. I learned a lot form this experience, the only reason I had to resign was because it was very detrimental to my health. In this work environment I was working with a lot of deadly chemicals and eventually my face started turning red and itchy, I began to get pimples and many more things I feel uncomfortable to speak upon.
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 25 October 2016
I worked out of the Brampton office and I found the staff to be very attentive and professional. I understand with this industry there are always jobs on the fly, but I felt as thought the staff were always on my side and trying to get my foot in the door to new opportunities. If you are a hard worker it is definitely noted and acknowledged. I'm grateful this company took a chance on me when many others didn't want to because of my busy schedule.

the schedule can be unpredictable and unreasonable, switching night shifts and day shifts one day right after the last shift, with no chance of correcting your sleep. You have reason to worry if you turn down a shift for this reason because you could lose work at a location for a time or permanently and have reason to be concerned that they'll either slow their calls or stop calling you all together if for any reason you can't take a shift. There are no health benefits unless you are permanent placement and they try their best to see that doesn't happen.
The work it self suck but the people you work with make it so much better, but in the winter time you barley get any hours. so your pay goes way down and then you have the risk of being laid off if your not the ideal worker
Temporary Employee (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 22 April 2015
Varied work places, wherever work could be found. Varying skills dependant on placement. Management could have been better at addressing issues both for temp workers and actual employees working within the company. Met a diverse group of co-workers, learned a lot from them. Challenging work and new skills to learn at every placement (not hard but a good challenge). Getting to know co-workers at placements, learning new skills and getting paid.
Paid well, good summer jobs, meet new people from all walks of life.
Office politics, gang up on employees if concerns not wanting to be address arise.
Temporary Agent (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 23 February 2014
Your days at work vary because you work at different locations but you learn a little bit of everything. Management was nice and co workers too but the hardest thing about the job would be adjusting to the locations.
Labourer (Former Employee) – Moncton, NB – 12 February 2014
first when u get to the ware house you got into your trailer and as the boxes come down the line your job is to organize them by postal code and put em on the right side in the trailer. wile working this job i learnt allot about being efficient and planning ahead of time. the management is very good in the work place and the co-workers and very good friendly hard workers.
Labour Worker (Former Employee) – Moncton, NB – 2 September 2013
Good company to work for if you're in between jobs. Never a time during your shift when you're not working. The most enjoyable part about the job is working for a variety of companies, because you get to meet other people, but definitely hard to arrange transportation to different locations every shift.
friendly people, average wages, good place to build work ethic
Laborer/Maintenance/Dock Worker (Former Employee) – Moncton, NB – 5 June 2012
The people there were very friendly, the wages were average to slightly above average for the time and it was a good place to build work ethic as it was mainly a labor position taking very little training and a lot of physical exertion.
