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. People aren't friendly nor approachable. Hardest part of the job is to maintain accuracy. Overall terrible place to work and lots of criticism.
Pros
Stepping stone to pursing another job
Cons
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

No Steady Hours
Inventory Clerk (Current Employee) –  Windsor, ON18 October 2017
I worked at this company for 8 years. The hours suck and are not even close to steady. They say that health benefits are available but if you inquire about them they make sure to keep your hours just below where you would qualify for them.

Alot of traveling
Inventory Clerk (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB6 October 2017
Due to nature of business, travel was required to around the provinces of New Brunswick and PEI. Could travel by yourself if the store was local but for long trips, travel was in the van.

Awful!!'
Worker (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB11 September 2017
Manager would go out of her way to publicly humiliate you, gossip behind your back and over all just treat everyone like garbage. Sitting in a van with 10 other people sometimes for 5 hours with no stops, no breaks and God forbid you ask for help.. If you get caught asking for assistance you will be punished without being spoken to, just taken off the schedule for acouple weeks.
Pros
Work
Cons
Everything

It is alright if you are a student and want to work some hours
Inventory Clerk (Current Employee) –  Peterborough, ON10 September 2017
It's not a very steady job, if you want to work somewhere that provides a lot of hours WIS is typically not the way to go. Doesn't provide stable income.
Cons
Long hours

Not able to provide full time hours.
Inventory Associate (Current Employee) –  Peterborough, ON10 September 2017
A typical day consists of travelling to the store and counting the inventory till the job is complete. There is always a scheduled start time, but you finish when the job is done, you never know exactly how long it will be. The hours are very sporadic, it is hard to get full time hours. A couple benefits are that you have a chance to get paid to travel, and they are flexible for students or people with other jobs.
Pros
Paid to Travel
Cons
Sporadic hours

Productive and Fun Workplace
Inventory Clerk (Former Employee) –  Greater Sudbury, ON29 August 2017
Every shift worked was enjoyable with fun co-workers and safe environment. I learned about inventory taking for various stores. Some days I would be up getting ready for work at the earliest 3am to go travel to another city either overnight or the day, but overall it's a great company to work for, great coworkers, and great managers/supervisors.
