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.
Managers & Supervisors, 4 day work week for most drivers, home every night
Hard work until used to it, some entitled senior drivers
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
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.
Clientèle furieuse causé par retard ans livraison et la surfacturation.
ne paye pas le salaire tel que convenu.
dénigrement et harcèlement utilisé par la direction
pas de formation
très mauvais climat de travail
Camion en mauvaise état mécanique et négligé
environnement poussiéreux , pas propre.
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.
Some good people, easy job
Horrible management, unprofessional management, low wages for amount of work expected, benefits take an insanely long time to start.
A very good company to work for very nice work conditions and helpful co-workers ... makes for a great team effort to get product to customers great work life balance ... and earnings are above average ...
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.
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.
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.
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.
