Restock (Current Employee) – Thorold, ON – 20 June 2018
Exceptional place to work. Highly recommend. Great hours, great salary, very friendly staff and management. I work in restock and the work is enjoyable. They go above and beyond to make it a pleasant work environment. Best job I've had to date. Love coming into work and mon-fri with weekends off is a definite perk.

If you are a physically capable person that likes doing the same thing everyday this is an easy job for you to get.You are required to do a lot of lifting and walking everyday. Management doesn't always agree on things. Religious culture.

I did love book depot. They showed me how to mature and become a better person, when I was there. They are such a friendly and kind environment that is there. I made many friends. I went on saturday's mostly and worked from 7-2 (i think) and I would most likely be on packing but sometimes I'd be put on stickering. Anyways before we start we have to be at the Supervisor's desk to get our job for the day before the bell or else we would be late. Then that would be our job for the day. The hardest part of the day would be not talking to anyone because I am a talker and you aren't allowed to leave your station so you were in the same place for the entire day. The most enjoyable part was making friends and I still have my one friend I talk to sometimes.

Warehouse Clerk (Former Employee) – Thorold, ON – 15 June 2013
A typical day at Book Depot would be stocking shelves, picking or packing book orders, entering new titles into the data base, doing invertory, and any other jobs that were required on a daily basis. Book Depot is an interesting company to work for because of the exposure of all the different books that are available. Management did a good job and I worked well with my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was being on your feet all day. I enjoy reading and working with books.
