Coca-Cola Canada Bottling Limited Employee Review

Order Picker / Meat Grinder

When you apply for this "Forklift-driver, Part time" job, just be aware that this has nothing to do with driving a forklift and it isn't a part time job. You're an Order-Picker and you're "on-call", You will be standing on a motorized pallet truck stacking product on pallets, usually up to 1,000 to 1,500 pieces per shift. This is literally a back-breaking job. It's a grind. The hours aren't guaranteed or consistent. Every morning you wait by the phone to see if they need you. You might not work at all for weeks or months at a time but around Christmas and during the summer months, when it's busy they'll expect you to work until the orders are processed, which might mean you're working 10 to 14 hour shifts and five or six days per week. Most people have back, shoulder and knee problems by the time they are forty. The pay is great, $24/hr for part time and $30/hr if you can wait for someone to retire and inch up the seniority list.

Pros

Good Pay

Cons

On Call, Long Hours.

The job is what it is

The work isn't horrible but the working conditions are harsh. The warehouse isn't temperature controlled. Can reach up to 40 degrees with humidity and -10 in the Winter. Pay isn't bad, Managers aren't great but you don't deal with them much. Co workers are good.
