Didn't mind working here. The only real issue was being in the freezer for long periods of time.

It’s a very physically demanding job, if you aren’t physically strong and healthy I wouldn’t recommend this. Also, this job involves a lot of kneeling, lifting of over 65lbs which can cause overuse injuries. Management, isn’t great they only listen to you if you’ve been with the company for a while. They aren’t very supportive of WSIB workers that have company injuries especially physical injuries. I worked at the 100 Line drive which is near High way 27 the Distribution centre and tbh was not impressed. I don’t recommend working here. Pay is not enough for the amount of lifting and physical work being done.
Pros
You get discounts for Costco membership
Cons
Low pay, physical demanding, poor management, Short staffed

It was a fun job that required a lot of hard work but as the day went on it got easier. In the morning you would come in early, rush around for three hours getting as much done as possible, then have a 15 minute break. around that time was when i would notice there would be less work to complete and as long as you dont have a problem carrying boxes of up to 50lbs then you should have no trouble with this job. the only cons i have to add is that the management was horrendous and they dont care about anyone who hasn't already been there for 5 years.
Pros
free christmas turkey, employee benefits, fun work enviroment
Cons
horrendous management
