Team Member (Former Employee) – Finch, ON – 17 June 2018
Management cares less about the employees and their concerns, they never regard students working for them. They are lots of gossips going on between employees and management, no understanding, racism is on-going in this place, I had a bad experience. You don't get enough shift to pay up your bills and the management doesn't care. I believe the ideal language at a work place is English, but the full time employees speak bad of someone who they know doesn't understand their language, and when you complain you get mocked at.

horrible management they expect you to know how there company works with out telling you or giving any information or any training, often boxes contain large spiders or other bugs you are expected to deal with , expected to life a multiple of 3 fifty pound boxes at once with out the use of another employee or a cart

Under paid for the work expected. Failure to recognize the need for technology to truly manage the business. Hiring practices are unfair, an associate was hired under the age of 18, wasbused for peak season then fired for not meeting the age requirements.
Used text book buyer (Former Employee) – Québec, QC,Ontario, Maritimes – 1 September 2012
I would go to many universities in Quebec ,Ontario and The Maritimes at the begining and end of every semester. I would deal with book store mananger to develop quantities of books needed. I would set up computer enter in quantities buy for book store and Follett wholesaler as well. I would buy used books from the students give them cash(great incentive). I would balance funds at the end of buy prepare reports confirm shipping for books,organize shipping and then travel to next location. Length of buys varied from a few days to five weeks. This taught me networking with managers, report classification, balancing of funds, while being completely autonomuus. Field support was always one phone call away. I was usually able to work through any unforseen circumstances, thinking quick on my feet and being resourceful.
