1 star because I can't go lower
Inventory Clerk (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON5 February 2018
While working at Wiz may be easy enough. the travel that they make you do through blizzards and 6 + hours of travel with no pay, only to work between 4 in 6 hours it's not worth it don't risk your life to work for these guys. not to mention they do not like to pay their employees! I have been waiting for a paycheck for over a month now, and they keep postponing the date over and over again. I feel like they're not going to pay me. I told them I wanted compensation for it I don't see that happening either. I begged them because I missed payments on my daily life things that need to be paid for have gone without because I've been waiting on money from them. EI took a lot less time than these guys did for a result! And you know how long they can take! My advice to anybody reading this would be find work elsewhere they will probably screw you over without even thinking.
Pros
It's a job (if they pay you)
Cons
Just about everything I've mentioned, and then lots more work there to find out. or don't take the chance, I would suggest don't take the chance

Unique workplace
Manager (Former Employee) –  Canada1 February 2018
Every day is different. Some times of great flexibility and some times of zero flexibility. Being proactive about workload will give you better opportunities for work/life balance.

Great first job
Inventory Associate (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON31 January 2018
each work day you would meet at the office and be bussed to the work location. Requirements included using a scanner to accurately count inventory. Some days were long as the work is very repetitive and can be frustrating if the workplace is unorganized.
Pros
Free lunches (sometimes)
Cons
Schedule isn't steady, some months are busier than others

Room to grow, if you’re looking for something that keeps you busy from the time you start til the time you finish, this is the job you want.
Inventory Clerk (Current Employee) –  Kitchener, ON26 January 2018
As long as you are serious about your position with WIS, and actually try to achieve, you will get amazing hours (yes some long, but worth it if you want it)
If you continue to excel and prove yourself, the raises are better. Opportunities to travel (with travel pay) with a team around Ontario, or just travel your region.
The job is what you make it.
I enjoy it. (3 years and counting, pun intended)
Pros
Room to grow, hours, travel pay

No appreciation of their workers
Inventory Clerk (Current Employee) –  Barrie, ON6 January 2018
Fellow employees are great, hours can be questionable especially if you have rubbed management the wrong way, they will just cut your hours, no warning. They do not like giving raises unless you are new and they are trying to lull you into a false sense of security. There is little concern for employee safety, even in a blinding snow storm with closed roads you are expected to make it. If you hurt yourself while working and make a WSIB claim they are uncooperative and will lie to their benefit. The job itself is manageable if you dont mind travel and spotty hours sometimes but there is definitely no appreciation of their employees.
Pros
Travel
Cons
Spotty hours and terrible management

Straight forward work
Inventory Associate (Current Employee) –  Timmins, ON3 January 2018
Traveling constantly was alright at times. Management needs to have a better attitude towards people and certain jobs. Work hours unsteady. Would work again for WIS International but don't want to be stuck with it for 15 years. Rating 6/10

Work-life balance difficult to achieve

Due to the hours of work required, it would be difficult to achieve a work-life balance outside the executive level management. Early mornings, late evenings, and weekends are required.

Pay at management level

Hours of work

Unpredictable shifts with low pay
Inventory Clerk (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON19 November 2017
The shifts are very short , or very long . Their isn't a set time when to finish. Management isn't encouraging at all. Theirs no opportunity to advance within the company.

Stepping stone to pursing another job

Very very short shifts, Low pay

First out of school
Programmer Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 October 2017
Visual Basic development of client specific bar-code scanners.

A couple hours to a day to customize a visual basic application that reads bar-codes for inventory tracking.

Minimal development. Coders seen as outside the companies core employees so not much participation
