low morel and poisenous culture
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON15 August 2017
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The operationing system there is grossly outdated and the employees are held accountable for its inefficienties.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.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
low morel, terrible supervision, no support or respect by management

Nice place to work. Very challenging but with good support
Inventory Control Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON12 July 2017
This is a place where you will put out fires on a daily basis. Never a dull moment.

You never know what you will get each day. As it comes with daily challenges it also comes with great satisfaction knowing you have done your best and help others as well as customers.

Management is good. Supportive.

Workplace culture is also well.
Pros
Supportive Manager
