A firm experiencing many changes, making an effort to upgrade its systems and processes
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Mississauga ON – 29 May 2017
VWR is experiencing many changes and transitions recently from being a public company being bought to become a private firm. Their Warehouse Management systems and processes are a few steps behind from the top world class distribution firms, nevertheless they are making efforts upgrading them, however changes are happening very slow. They value work-life balance in that is a positive aspect of the company.

If there was ever a company that required a union this is one. The company in no way supports or helps develop their workers. The bottom line is the customer. There is absolutly no leadership at VWR in Misissauga. There is also a very poisenous culture in the warehouse. little or no training is provided. One of the lead hands is so disrespectful. Totally unaporoachable and a gross lack of professionalism is expressed by him. The pay is above standard but do require a overhaul for what is expected if you. If you are looking for great benefits VWR has a great benefits package for its full time employees. The operationing system there is grossly outdated and the employees are held accountable for its inefficienties. I will say the only professionalism I ever saw in my 15 months there was from the rarely seen warehouse manager.
low morel, terrible supervision, no support or respect by management
