Order Picker in Kitchener, ON
on 7 May 2022
Decent work environment
In almost 7 months of work, I feel like I've learned a lot about my job as an order picker. It has been pretty neat to pick, pack and sometimes sort the orders that I'm involved with. In the overall process of Supply Chain Management, picking definitely has an impact. The reason is, you have to make sure your orders that you pick are correct and accurate. Then the other procedures, shipping out inclusive become easier.My only peeves or inconveniences would be the occasional dust that can be there when picking packages as well as the rare high frequency of heavy picks or large quantity orders and the malfunctioning of processing equipment (monitors, scanners, printers) in the time you're actually picking!

Ne surtout pas faire confiance à personnes
A l embauche il te promet un salaire.. mais sur la paye c est tout autre et à la baisse.. si tu ne fais pas partie de la gang.. tu sera rejetée durant l année..Ne surtout pas faire confiance à personnes.

Great people
Loved the people but like all corporations you are a body and that is it. Both good and bad management and when you get the good it's great when you get the bad you look to leave.

Management is everything!
If you have a good manager and coworkers, this a great place to work! Nothing too difficult and can be a lot of fun! Excellent training programs. Pay could be better but I guess you can't have it all.

Pretty laid back place to work.
Worked here for 3 years. Pay is ok, but the hours are long and it's bi monthly salary so when you actually work it out it's not that much per hour. Hard to only get paid on the 1st and the 16th each month. sometimes that's more than 2 weeks between pays.
