Material Handler (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 8 January 2018
I worked as a picker and at first it was nice and staff was friendly, but when I brought up safety concerns they didn't care at all. They cared more about me trying to get to 100% then if I get knocked out cold from pickle jars. On several occasions I've had boxes fall on my head from what they call "pyramid picking", luckily the boxes were light. Twice I have broken packs of pickles because the so called "pyramid picking" made the stack unstable. If only Overwatiteas saw how they treat their investments and how little they care about their products, and if only WCB saw how their location is ran. I just wish they'd care about their employees safety as much as they care about productivity and how much their code of conduct states.

Operations Supervisor and Warehouseman (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 14 June 2017
Very busy sites with high expectations for the supervisory team. Sometimes it can become a bit tense with so many people and differing opinions but people try their best to be fair. If it is your first job it will be very hard and if you aren't used to labour work it will be very hard. Once you gain experience and skill the work becomes easier and the flexibility of the work schedule is great for students. Supervisors are given lots of training and encouraged to stretch themselves to become better leaders.
Lots of training and corporate support, special events
The real professional experience if somebody wants.
Coach (Current Employee) – Langley, BC – 14 June 2017
My position as a coach in a warehouse as large as its challenging to say the least and doing everything is challenging and interesting is benefit. Your attention to detail and ability to foresee bottle necks and avoid them is greatly appreciated especially during times of extreme pressure like the management team. In addition on this doing particular projects those extra hours we worked while maintaining the standard of excellence that’s what leadership greatly contributed to our facility to satisfy our clients and coworker. Words of appreciation are at par and we all are sincere to EVEVEVEV…Enjoy very much.
Good entry level labor position however job is quite difficult for the pay offered
Order Picker (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 13 April 2017
At EV logistics one is expected to preform in regards to a performance scale designed to maximize labor efficiency and minimize rest for the workers.
I believe the level of performance and speed that is expected by the company to meet standards and pass probation is unrealistic and is causing the workers to work at an unhealthy pace which is prone to injury.
Picker Operator (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 24 March 2017
Working at EV Logistics is something you'd expect working at a warehouse. My position here was picking orders at a very high pace. What made me leave this company was that at EV Logistics, I just felt very lonely. As you are put in a room picking orders for the whole day. Even on breaks/lunch break, you can't really communicate with your co workers in the break room because they all usually have their own groups that they talk to, and most of them prefer to be alone and eat their lunch. But aside from that. The supervisors at EV Logistics are very fair on how they operate the warehouse. I don't have any complaints about them as they were very nice and tried to help me get settled within the company. The two trainers are very nice as well. Some co-workers are mean, as one time I was trying to get by someone and their machine, but he just refused to and just parked his machine in the middle of aisle and continued picking his orders ? There are some helpful guys , but there are also those workers that will hate on new workers. To be honest now, I like how the company strives for safety within the workplace, but there is no way that we can work safely picking at such a high pace with such little time to do the order. You'd have to be natural with the job.

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 9 November 2016
Well a typical day at work would be operating a pallet jack assembling and picking groceries with a headset provided. Learning how to count accurately stack properly on pallets. Management was fair and supportive. Me and my co-workers worked in a fast paced enviroment and followed all safety procedures. The hardest part of the job lifting bending walking on your feet all day. The most enjoyable part of the job was stacking good pallets for the customer.
reach operator (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 18 June 2016
EV. Is a joke. They care more about the bottom line and doing things fast that safety or doing things right. Management is at best tyrannical at worst barely competent. (Having been told at one point that doing my job meant putting batteries in reach trucks over cleaning up a potentially fatal hydraulic spill ) when I disagreed and supported the need to clean the spill in a timely manor with wcb regulations was rewarded with a suspension for daring to speak of the dreaded work safe standards.
Oh they have unlimited over time, they also tend to force over time and lock people in the building so they cannot leave until the job is done. Workers in third world countries get better treatment.
Great job if looking to get payed to essentially work out.
Perishable Wearhouse Picker (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 12 April 2016
Typical day of work includes roughly 7 hours of hard labour with difficult to achieve expectations. Learned to successfully and safely operate a pallet jack, as well as stack up to 250 boxes in a safe and controlled manner. Management was strict and usually unavailable, as workers were required to complete jobs in very small amounts of time. Hardest part of the job was building a complete pallet within the small amount of time given. The most enjoyable part of the job was driving the pallet jacks.
Decent pay, unlimited overtime.
Completely solo job, no teamwork whatsoever. Very competitive.
Order Selector (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 8 April 2016
I just got kicked out from this company after 2 months of hard work. They say I am not 100% fast in picking orders, which is practically not possible for any new guy. I worked hard on floor, pushing to do 100% all day but naturally was not fast enough. Few points to say here from my experience, 1.The job was tough with using head sets, 2.The task time is very low 3.They got safety first rule, but the actual rule was to pick fast no matter what! At the end; Only a few can survive in this work who are fortunate in speed other will be kicked out for sure. That's why you see they are always hiring New Guys!
narrow isle Mechine Operator (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 1 March 2016
Each day seemed long and very stressful. I Learned you can not meet expectations for this company without risking your safety. Poor Management they would rather bring in new people to train rather to show respect to their senior employees. It was very difficult working with certain co-workers due to the lack of respect and lack of understanding of the majority of the co-workers due to the fact that 90% of the work force were not of English speaking Origns and it was hard to communicate and to be able to point out unsafe behavior. The Hardest part of the job was to complete my tasks safely as well as up to expectations. The Most Enjoyable part was getting to go home at the end of the day.
Was able to get train and certified on MHE Equiptment
Stressful because of pressure to preform at the risk of safety
