The one good review I can give for this company is that I made some great friends and worked with some great people. The environment used to be a great place and most people would enjoy coming to work everyday. Now most people dread it. Management has no idea what the rest of their staff does on a day to day basis. If you are not a sales manager or upper management it’s safe to say you mean very little to anyone. Office area can be very toxic and gossipy. A lot of the time people are brainwashed by upper management and it’s very sad. They also try to make up for bad things happening by “treating” the rest of the staff to free lunches. This company will go down in flames if they keep managing this place like they do.
Sometimes free lunches
Do not work here if you are looking to advance your career in any way!(unless of course you are prepared to pucker up to management, as you will never get anywhere on merit alone!). If you like high school drama and gossip then this might be your dream job!? Very cliquey, and if you weren't part of the clique then you were s*it out of luck.
I could go on forever there are so many!
Probably the most stress filled place to work. Toxic environment Managers have no idea what their staff do at all. It’s an absolute messPeople are paid on who you know, not how long you have been there or how well you do your jobUsed Covid as an excuse to get rid of people the managers didn’t like
Toxic work environment
My overall experience with this Company can be simply defined as stressful. Most to all Supervisors and Managers work with no training on how to be a leader, you are always worrying if you will have a job to come back to because people are always getting let go out of the blue. Employees are miss treated and have their jobs threatened at least once a week. This company also used COVID-19 as an excuse to weed out employees they were no longer fond of and cut some people benefits out completely. This was the most stressful place I have ever worked in all honesty.
Some free lunches
Long hours, stressful, no leadership
3 CEO's in 6 years. Leadership is upper-management focused and not operations itself. If you and others enjoy your day at work, management sees it as slacking off even if work is done correctly and on time. Lean is a big thing in the company, mostly in the bottom line and reduction of staff. The turnover rate is high. Training is half a day and then onto the job. If someone has a desk or an office good luck getting them out of there to help or give advice. The hardest part of the job is the drama. Very gossipy. There is plenty of miscommunication between sales and production then never get fixed and the same issues happen year after year even if they hire new people, they are allowed to make the same mistakes. Opportunity for advancement is slim, kissing up helps. Yes sir, yes ma'am are preferred. Cross-training between departments is expected in production in case one department is backed up instead of hiring enough staff or having the right equipment in place. Be prepared for the bus, as you can at any time be thrown under the bus by coworkers or management. Always looking for a scapegoat instead of a way to improve or fix the situation. The work between branches as they are in different provinces as well is not the same. What one branch does is not the same as the other. Be it from sales to purchasing to procurement to shipping. Paperwork is a mess, the paper trail is worse. Safety is a major push at the company, even though daily there are many small things done that wouldn't be considered safe but are done anyways because its the way it has been done for - more...
good laughs, some good people, social club, shift times good, gym on site, yoga
dont laugh around management, very cliquey, poor benefits, pay into social club to eat a hot dog twice a year, overtime is scrutinized and not welcome, gym and yoga is set up for office staff, laborers can use it after work
Not very professional, they try but don’t have the strongest management team. Salary was a little below industry standards and the benefits are not very good. Force you take holiday during the Christmas break or you can choose to not get paid. Limited training provided. Mislead me during the interview process with the promises of good pay, benefits and training. Just ask lots of questions before excepting any position at the Langley branch.
Lack of professionalism
A typical day consisted of processing quotes and orders. They were taken by phone, email, or through walk-ins. Multitasking was essential - as you would be jumping from task to task consistently at a fast pace. This pace would lead to items being missed and in need of correction. The training on policies and procedures, and the products they sell - is minimal. You will be expected to learn much on your own; sink or swim. Policies and procedures are not clear and often change week to week. Little is in writing. Whether intentional or not, your colleagues may provide you with incorrect information on processes and products. I imagine this is due to lack of training and formal written procedures. As there are not many clear policies and procedures it makes sense that it would be difficult to implement as a manager. The training for SalesPad was provided and was helpful. The program itself is easy to use, however, there are many different SKUs for the same products and the pricing was often out of date and in need of verification. There are a lot of steps through SalesPad in order to process quotes and orders. There seems to be a disconnect between those higher up in the company, and those working on the front lines. It would be wise for them to create a training program (or programs) so that they not only have consistency but have more confident staff; who are less likely to gossip and tear each other down due to insecurity. This job turned out to be very stressful. I dreaded going into work and often feared for my job.
Cookie Friday; Social Club; Staff lunches; Gym - Yoga Classes; Great Benefits; Excellent hours.
Poor work environment; lack of training; inconsistent policies and implementation.
This Company allows for very minimal career advancement. The turnover rate is mind boggling. The problems there is the management. They are not in sync with their employee's at all. The job itself is not too bad. I find there was a little too many steps to their procedures. A lot of favouritism goes on at this location hence the revolving door. This company will get you by, but thats pretty much it.
Free Breakfast Thursday's in Lieu of Decent pay.
Zero Flexibility, tech's sometimes work weekends holidays, up to 16 hours shifts.
Great place to work compared from previous work place and family oriented work environment. (personal comment) Everyone is cross trained to support a team. Very well organised with 5S Lean program.
