Dont waste your time
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Nanaimo, BC4 January 2019
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
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB6 April 2018
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
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB2 May 2017
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.

Coordonnatrice au service à la clientèle (Current Employee) –  Lasalle, QC18 October 2016
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
District Manager (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB21 May 2016
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.

Alsco Corporate Lacks Loyalty
Manager (Former Employee) –  Alberta2 July 2014
Management at the corporate level have lost touch with their senior managers. People generate these numbers they're chasing but the worker is still but a commodity. They handcuff senior managers in areas of budget forcing labour decisions to stay on track while short handed. GM's make the real money while golfing and senior managers get nothing. There is no incentive to move up within the company, no loyalty. If one could only make decisions upward and you had the ability to also fire upward, you could change the culture within Canada. The Regional Mgr. needs work!

I would not work for this company & I'm thankful I got out when I still had a life.
Pros
Some good people, pension
Cons
poor wages for production staff, unprofessional, RSR's need better corporate sales training.
