eBay Enterprise (Fulfilment Centre)
Fulfilment / Payroll Administrator (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 25 August 2015
Peak season runs from Halloween to New Years; during this time work days run long and weekend shifts are expected (work/life balance is for February through September).
The wages are just north of minimum wage but the benefits are (Health, RRSP matching, Employee Stock Purchase Plan, Employee Assistance). While it is worth it to participate; it can be difficult to contribute to the RRSP/ESSP when the wages are so low.
As with many warehouse/distribution jobs the workforce combines employees and agency staff. Persistent agency staff are regularly offered employment. And despite the turnover in agency staff; the efforts made to keep the culture positive is mostly successful.
The management is young, still learning and progressing in many areas.
Employee rewards and recognition for suggestions, positive action, involvement.
