Material Handler (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 24 January 2018
A typical day consisted of a short meeting with the supervisor, which would consist of station and call area assignment, so you would be given the station you were going to work on that particular day and the area you would be calling. After the meeting we would go to our assigned stations and start making calls.
The workplace culture was positive, we were like a family we connected to each and it felt like we had known each other for a long time it was really great.
Driver (Former Employee) – Saint John, NB – 18 January 2018
I was hired for this job based on the job description. The job description does not match the job so I was forced to leave. This job is for truck driver with truck driving experience as the truck is a 5 ton wiith a 20 ft box.The job is very psychical which I did not mind. The people you work with are very nice and they work hard. The expectation of the work that can be done by one person is unreasonable and I feel it could leave injured and you are all by your self. The way the route are schedule when I was there it should be a two people job most of the day. Also what is not in the description is it is mostly long haul trucking going to the out town to pick up after the full time guy is done working all day And working weekends. This job should save for description Experienced Truck driver in good shape as there a lot of labour involved Able to work hand held computer control. Available ever weekend as it part of your work week. Loading and unloading by hand bombing ever shift. They did pay alright for the posting they had but base on the job and the experience you need truck driver it is a little low. This real is a two person job at most times unless they changes thing around. Thanks
Job is 12-15 hours a day of hard labour in heat and snow. Loading a truck trying to meet impossible quotas. The truck is not maintained and isn’t safe to operate. Donations are wasted and broken and just destroyed. No management support. Dispatching is insulting. They treat you like a child and expect you to dedicate your entire life to the job. Pay is an absolute joke. I worked 2 weeks I make 800$ and my finger tips were bleeding from throwing thousands of 20lb bags. Stay away unless you don’t value your health or sanity

Driver (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 10 July 2017
I applied and got a job promising part time hours and a "bit" of lifting. I ended up doing 15 hours a day filling a big truck a few times a day. I left before my first week was done because I was scheduled for every day of the week at 15 hour days. The pay was good but it's more work than it's worth.
Receptionist/Clerk (Former Employee) – Port Coquitlam, BC – 13 June 2017
I believe in CDA. I have a daughter with diabetes and had used some of the services offered. I answered the phone and booked pickup appointments. It was at times difficult dealing with rude people, but overall I enjoyed helping out this organization.
Truck Driver (part time) (Former Employee) – London, ON – 4 June 2017
The only good thing I can say is the money was good, but you had to work for it. As a part time employee a 14 hour day was not uncommon. It would be a great place to work if upper management would let the office managers do the managing.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 19 May 2017
In the workplace I would want to enjoy my time while working, helping customers, and most importantly getting the job done while being safe wherever I work. I would also make sure that the customers are happy and are dealt with first. If I have any questions, I would ask for help.
