I can’t say enough about my time at Bunzl. It’s a team atmosphere with enough freedom and independence to use initiative and imagination to get the job done the way your feel is best.

Small company atmosphere with big company benefits.
Pros
It’s clean regular day work and overtime
Cons
It can get very busy and physical but it is Monday to Friday days

Manager continually took temper tantrums. Then two managers were doing the same job. To much politics. The people there were awesome to work with. Sales department was a joke with all kinds of perks being bragged about.

Bunzl management expect high paced work with no safety training whatsoever. Lots of accidents and a well lubricated revolving door for unhappy employees. Only a handful of people stick around because they like the overtime but at the expense of losing workers who want to go home at a decent hour and not work 12 hr shifts everyday

place is who you know and who you blow, terrible workplace environment, toxic, rude management insulting subordinates and power-hungry old men that think being rude and obnoxious is a management style. The boys club they call it! very disfunctional. Surprised they've been able to survive this long, the company is so poorly managed. upper management is so disconnected for the day to day operations- they went and got themselves a new office to be further disconnected! if the US HQ found out what happens with the familial hiring, VPs hiring their cousins, mother and daughter in the same departments, managers dating employees, I am sure action would be taken! avoid this place at all costs

Le plus difficile à cet emploi est que nous sommes laissés à nous-mêmes.
Cela a pris 3 semaines avant d'avoir mon ordinateur et 1 semaine de plus afin de pouvoir avec mes codes d'accès...

J'ai rencontré mon directeur des ventes 2 fois entre décembre 2018 et novembre 2019 (dont annonce qu'il coupait mon poste).

It’s not hard work and it’s a good balance of home life too. Great benefits and late model equipment with a dedicated truck. Small company attention with big company stability of work and paid overtime after 44.
Pros
Clean, days regular Monday to Friday work
Cons
Occasional overnight runs, but no cross border and Southern Ontario

Very limited collaboration between management, employees.

Communication isn’t there when major initiatives take place.


Impacts moral, and ability to serve customer needs.

Overall this was a good place to work but not much room to advance. Work in most areas can be fast paced. Good savings program. Help within the branch was not always available

Dedicated my hard working hours for this company. 12hr days sometimes 15.Cought the manager stealing 2 hours of my hard work and crediting himself or his new staff so he would look good on paper. I usually cleard 500 lines a night on a 12 hour shift. 50 lines/ hr is the company standard min. Brought it to HR management team and 10 days later i get laid off also got black listed for telling tye truth.

Early mornings, good crew to work with. Most managers have too much on there plate. As long as the work gets done the company for the most part leave you alone. Pay could be better but that goes with every job.

But as I’ve progressed, the potential positive impact of having dedicated time to discuss my performance at work has not been lost on me. Rather than stressing about receiving criticism, I started to see it as an opportunity to push my career forwards.

After all, this time is about you, and as much as it’s important your boss knows what you’ve achieved during the year and what contribution you’ve made to your team, they also need to know what your ambitions are and what you want to achieve within your firm.

Where to start! The wet sock of a SO CALLED manager at the Burlington location is by far the worst human I've had the displeasure of meeting! They constantly push you to work over legal hours by having you log into system as "unknown driver". The handbombing at times is ridiculous! Stops are regularly out of sequence. You're FORCED to come in yearly for an idiotic day of inventory with the wet sock morons from the front office. If there were an option for negative stars, this craphole most certainly qualifies. Overall this place has ZERO respect for truck drivers. STAY AWAY!
Pros
Absolutely none!
Cons
Everything about this place

A typical day at work went by slowly. We would work for about 13-15 hours. This would normally be considered a good day by many but not so much so when you are family oriented.
Pros
Hours guaranteed.
Cons
Extremely long hours.
