Not what I expected
az driver certified lcv driver w/ 40 plus years (Former Employee) –  mississauga road1 May 2018
This is a over bill, company, in other words, not do a good job company, be as slow as possible to over bill contracts. Worked like always did n was punished, for being too efficient, bumped off good contract to be on garbage. My neighbor, was former president, and he left, says a lot. If your into working or should I say sleeping a lot, and don't mind doing 60 hrs a week at less pay than anyone else, this is the job for you. And drive garbage trucks!
Pros
nothing

junk trucks

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Surrey, BC24 April 2018
It's a good company to work with. I learnt many things working there. The management is good. It's always open to suggestions. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I have flexible schedule.

Horrible place to work
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB18 January 2018
Company to too top heavy with management. Never happy they always want more more more. Training was dependent on your coworkers to provide and they are actually your competition for the most part so obviously bare minimum of training provided. You had to know how to work the system to your advantage or be the bosses "favorite" to be successful which was difficult to do with the poor training provided. Systems and processes were ridiculously repetitive and unnecessary.
Micro managed to death. Too many others allowed to encroach on your territory making success almost impossible. Think twice before you apply!!!

poorly organized and full of workplace Mistreatment
Spot Quoter (Former Employee) –  Grand Falls, NB14 January 2018
This company is extremely disorganized in all departments.
The management team is what needs to change. Lying and turning employees against each other for entrainment purposes will not make your team thrive and be successful.
They will tell you to your face that you are doing well-but will belittle and destroy your work ethic behind your back. You exhaust yourself to do a high intensity job to barely get over minimum wage, or a simple thank you.
Favoritism was also common. There was nobody to turn to for advice or have in your corner if something was wrong.
Go elsewhere, honestly you’ll be much more appreciated.
This company could potentially thrive, but a desperate need in management and supervisors needs to happen.
Cons
POOR management

worst managed company ever and cheap
Administration Assistant (Current Employee) –  Hartfield, NB4 July 2017
you'll be pulling your hair out trying to do your job, only to be told your not doing it. they want you to bend over backwards for them but will not do the same for you. their HR team is ignorant and sadistic, and will do anything to get you out. its just a out of date place, they need to train people to properly manage people. your efforts and experience would be appreciated anywhere but here. McCains should be ashamed they have this under their belt as a second company, they treat their employees like manure.

Not a nice place to work - could be but isn't!
Dock Worker (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB14 June 2017
It is like trying to hammer nails with a broken hammer while your hands are behind your back and someone has stolen the blueprints. No thought for safety or people - the atmosphere on the shop floor is the worst I have ever seen in terms of negativity, hopelessness.

Why do I work here - it currently pays the bills.

Having the experience that I do it is especially frustrating to watch management destroy a business along with the people who work there.
Pros
Pension plan
Cons
too many to list

Not a very professional environment
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON14 June 2017
There is no real training there, as most people there only really care to get in, do their time (so to speak) and get out, and with no communication on any level of the work environment, most information gets lost, leading to increases in their shrinkage.

Floor staff is care-free, which coupled with the lack of real training, leads to a revolving door of workers. This also can be said with reference to their management as well.
Cons
Lack of communication from/Lack of care for the staffing from management.

Worst Manage company I ever work for
Manager (Former Employee) –  East,West5 May 2017
I have never work for such a dysfunctional company like Day & Ross. Their management group is nothing but 2 faced and if you voice your concerns about something and they don't like it or agree they find a way to get ride of you. I have worked with them in the East and thought it was bad until came to Calgary and this is the worst terminal I ever work at for them. Do not trust anyone in the management group in Calgary cause they will burn you very quick and set you up for failure.
Pros
front line staff good
