WAREHOUSE WORKER (Current Employee) –  Richmond, BC1 May 2019
It's exceedingly frustrating working at Container World. Most of the supervisors are not very good and don't know what they're talking about. The union is terrible, and only seems to exist to gouge the employees. The only good part is the pay and availability of overtime.

As a supervisor you are in the crossfire between Union and management
Warehouse Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC10 November 2018
Work / Life balance was good
Salary and benefits was above average.
Job security was okay but have seen people being let go.
union is such a nightmare that you tend to rethink is the unionized environment is only for the betterment of the employees under the union, they always have a way out of any situation even if it is a solid mistake committed by the employee.
Pros
Work / Life balance, Salary and benefits
Cons
everything else and most importantly the unionized militant culture.

Average job
Inventory Planner (Current Employee) –  Richmond, BC7 June 2017
The salary and benefits are minimal since they are aiming for new graduates. Everyone is very approachable and easy to talk to about any issues you may have, but I don't see any real advancement possible. The notoriety of overturn is well-known throughout.
Pros
Free food occasionally
Cons
Pay is lower than average and not a lot of room for advancement.
