Young and fresh thinking management
Strong team of supervisors and management in the Edmonton branch. Helped make a person feel comfortable from day one. Co-workers were helpful for the most part and friendly enough. Lacked a sense of “team” amongst the drivers but my hunch is when management recognizes this is an issue or when it becomes one they will take action to help raise the team spirit.

Only downfall was there appeared to be no accountability for the more senior drivers poor performance or blatant disrespect in one instance to the customers.


Overall hard work but if your not a lazy person and like meeting people it will be worth a shot.
Pros
Managers & Supervisors, 4 day work week for most drivers, home every night
Cons
Hard work until used to it, some entitled senior drivers

Filthy environment
I do not recommend ALSCO at all. The building is run down and literally duct taped together in parts this could be overlooked if it wasn’t infested with bugs, but it is. I would find ants literally swarming my desk in the morning and other bugs I couldn’t immediately identify after my lunch turns out they were bed bugs. When I informed management of bites I received while working they dismissed my concerns and refused an exterminator

Fast paced, stressful old staff at Hanging Dept.are rude n they won’t train you instead they will yell n laugh at you if you make mistake
Management: The manager( a lady) is very pro management she never considers her staff. Very inconsiderate.
They never pays for overtime even if they make you work on weekends, still on a regular rate. They are so cheap in their employees, never gives increase even if you work for several years for them.

Good place to work
Working at ALSCO is not hard to learn at all just lots to do and the work is very laborious but the benefits and paid holidays are worth it if you want to make simple money then there is the best.

Dont waste your time
Do not, I repeat, DO NOT apply to work at alsco. Managers bully employees, use scare tactics to get what they want. If you stand up for yourself they'll target you. Save yourself some stress and work elsewhere.
Pros
Some good people, easy job
Cons
Horrible management, unprofessional management, low wages for amount of work expected, benefits take an insanely long time to start.

Used to be great
I used to work in Alsco Edmonton branch when they used to have good managers. Right now its been running with unprofessional, inconsiderate managers. They would ask for overtime but they wont pay you right. And if you can't do overtime you will be expecting you will have a hard time at work. As managers take it very personal. No increase no oppurtunity to learn more no career advancement. And they pay low. No sympathy or even empathy.
I most gladly I dont work for this company anymore.Their not worth of your time and hard work.
Pros
Mon-fri work
Cons
Bad Managment, low pay

Great Work Place
A typical day at this job requires you to delivery to customers on a route service and products including linen, textiles, mats and upsale to customers on a regular basis.

This is a nice job for someone that is independant and loves to manage their own type of route. Alsco gives you the tools and support to succeed on your own.

Environnement de travail stable
Les heures fixes (7h à 15h30) sont vraiment respectés ce qui permet d'avoir un équilibre.

Environement de travail
Difficile de progresser dans cette entreprise, la charge de travaille fluctue énormément et le travail d'équipe n'est pas mis de l'avant. Les chances de progresser dans l'entreprise sont nulles et les propositions pour améliorer la productivité ne sont pas nécessairement les bienvenus.
Pros
Les horaires
Cons
Les pauses sont difficiles à obtenir

Good Environment to work
Good environment to be working in. The only down fall is the communication between different departments.
The benefit package could be a bit more especially for the departments where its harder on the body.
