Account Manager (Former Employee), Montreal CanandaOctober 1, 2013
Satisfying job, meeting and maintaining customers through close customer relations.
Difficult to negotiate extra charges, as there was a need for more flexibility.
Recent changes in middle management made it difficult to get a sense of direction.
Excellent co-workers and good team spirit.

Excellent Place to Work
Order Picker / Walkie Forklift Operator (Current Employee), Caledon, ONJanuary 2, 2013
Pros: vending machine
The supervisors stress safety above performance. They do not play favorites and everyone seems to be treated equally and with respect.

The hardest part of the job is leaving at the end of the shift.

The fellow employees are not at all intimidating and are more than welcoming and friendly.
