Decent pay, but not worth it compared to everything else
I was supposed to have a 30 day and 60 day review, but those never happened. I would ask the Ops Supervisor when we were meeting for them and he said "soon, but I will always tell you if there's something we're not happy with or need you to change", so I thought I was doing fine, but then they let me go after "reviewing my 2.5 months at CanWel".
On top of that, there's not one single person in the office/warehouse that I can think of that the Ops Supervisor and Admin Clerk did not bad mouth to me (starting on my first day), including the Branch Mgr and Regional Mgr. They were continually whispering between themselves and I always felt like I had to have my back up. It was constant negativity every single day.
The senior employees ran the office, with none of the managers willing to stand up to them. They let those employees talk down to other staff consistently, while never getting reprimanded. The attitudes that the senior staff would come in with were so abhorrent and would disrupt the office, but never addressed in a permanent manner so it would be the same thing day after day.
Also racism was quite rampant, with often supervisors attacking other races, or commenting that indigenous protesters should be "shot in the street" among other things.
My actual work was extremely boring, with maybe having a total of 3.5 hours of work to do per day, as the other clerk was unwilling to delegate anything to me, and the managers did not step in.
I would not recommend CanWel to anyone.
