terrible
wash floor (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON19 March 2019
Worst job you can imagine. Hot, heavy lifting, short breaks that don't allow for a recovery from the tasks you are assigned. Leadership is lacking, union reps are useless. The air in the plant is toxic wqith fumes and chemicals.
Pros
leaving
Cons
too many to mention

Busy Job
Accounts Receivable Specialist (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB6 March 2019
My typical day at work is always busy though I have learned so much being on this job. I like that we have a social committee that plans on having fun times like games at work during holidays or special days.

CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON31 January 2019
Horrible place to work, management one sided, very little support or help when needed, neglect company vehicles, even unsafe @ times. Will 100% take advantage of route jumpers, days are over loaded, not enough time to have lunch or breaks. Normal day is 10hr/day or more. Slavery @ its BEST!!! Management and staff are quitting on a monthly basis. Worst experience!!!
NO STABILITY ( DO NOT APPLY )

Detriorating workplace environment
Service department (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON4 January 2019
Used to be a great place to work but workplace culture has gone down in quality for a while. Co-workers and mid level management were always great and supportive and would make working there tolerable. Going through some growing pains over the last few years we really got to see where upper management really stands. Employees are given unreasonable expectations and put in a position to fail on a daily basis. Most employees are miserable and upper management's inability to admit that anything is wrong is killing the workplace.
Pros
Co-workers
Cons
Upper management, workplace culture

Average office job, nothing special
Customer Service Operator (Former Employee) –  Stoney Creek, ON29 December 2018
Average office job - manageable workload, steady hours and breaks. Acknowledgement for a job well done. Little to no opportunity for advancement and promotions are handed out on a "who you know, not what you know" basis. Most of the people who work there are nice.
Pros
Weekends and stat holidays off.
Cons
No opportunity to advance. No holiday events.

Productive
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB16 November 2018
It is a very productive company, however the managing is poor, no appreciation, we bust our butts off daily and for what? some days it feels like a jail. Don't get me wrong, you have your benefit's, weekends off, 40 hours a week, but is it all worth it in the end if you aren't happy? Its been a ride and they have taught me so much and its time to take those talents else where -
Pros
Weekends off, benefits
Cons
no appreciation, poor managment, no free lunches

Slavery is back
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB5 November 2018
Don’t ever work here, the company does not care for you one bit. If you are sick or hurt don’t even bother asking for the time off to heal as there is no one to cover. Meanwhile the management are sitting around in their offices slacking off. Some (not all) management have huge chips on their shoulders and if you voice your opinion they belittle you and come right in your face and want to start something.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Management and everything else

Easy work with decent pay
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK12 September 2018
Not a bad place to work, but new ownership and management has made it difficult to want to stick around with them expecting quite a lot of their employees with, at times, little benefits for the extra hours put in.

Horrible Place To Work!
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  London, ON16 June 2018
Everything about that place is horrible, aside from the wonderful employees that work inside the factory. Everyone else (especially the drivers) are horrible. All the drivers do is waste time, leave carts or dirty linens/ garbage around the docking area, dont put anything back, etc. Managers are even worse! Constantly rushing people, thinking that they're everything to the company, always looking at their phone and timing people. They need to force allot of people to resign or shut down the company. People slave their, and if the managers dont like it, they're fired within weeks. Dont ever work here!
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Long hours, horrible management
