Don’t ever work here

The management would come back and scream at you! They thought they knew what they were talking about when coming to the back. I would never work there again. They would move new guys up and keep the guy who have been there for a year at the same position. They would tell you if you come in on weekend it would be overtime but after you worked the weekend thinking you were getting paid overtime, you would go and ask if they were paying overtime and they would say I never said that to you. They are a bunch of crooks

Pros

Good guys to work with

Cons

Management Doesn’t respect the guys in the shop

Heavy labor

This was a great company to work for but my body could not take the heavy labor. The staff and management was great. Pay and benefits were even better. I learned a lot about valve's and the importance of them

Incapable of seeing worth in an employee.

Should never have started there. Managment was completely unaware of what actually happens in their stock room. Safety was more of a suggestion than a practice.

Great Culture in a Successful Company

Positive workplace culture, approachable management, successfully managed and a profitable company with no red tape to get things done. Compensation and bonus programs defined and achievable. Transparent financial results shared, bench marking and goals discussed, open friendly communication. Success driven to be number 1 in the industry. Teamwork between locations and head office with the head office having a service attitude toward branches. Leadership with no egos or employees being political, a culture of success and winning all around. Challenges - Apex was bought by a public company several years ago,they are slowly trying to interject their top driven policies that do not fit the oil industry - Apex Culture trying to remain intact.

Pros

Fun culture in a successful company, great benefits, flexibility

Cons

too many internal and external audits now, Volatile Oil Industry in Alberta

It is ok.

If you do not fit in the team, not related to the work but office politics, you are fired. You can work hard as much as you want, if you are not a part of the office gossiping you will loose the job.

Energentic and fast paced

A typical day at work was entertaining and fast paced usually. Always learning the new parts that were ordered, the many names they were known by, the sizes, how they were put together. Hardest part of the job was remembering what parts needed to be billed with what parts when the sales people did not write them all down. The most enjoyable part of the job was the entertaining co-workers and customers that would be in and around all day long.

Pros

Able to be doing family orientated moments that would come up.

Micro Managed

Was with the company for 8 years, took a few transfers doing so and met some good people along the way. Transferred to the valve side and had emailed the manager and area manager regarding my role as it seemed to switch everyday there. I was fine with that but after I moved to a knew city it was brought to my attention I needed to be near my phone 24/7.. no joke. I asked for a solution and was let go the next day. Horrible management

Pros

Pay was ok

Cons

Horrible management and no reason

Overall atmosphere felt very secret and management was not good

I worked for Apex Distribution for 8 years, took a transfer to Leduc on the valve side and was let go after 3 months because I was told I would be doing other work and was miss lead. I asked for a fair solution and it wasn't even discussed, let go like that!

Pros

Close to home

Cons

Management staff was very poor, no room for opinions.
