Pleasure to work at corporate office

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Corporate office is forward looking, open, and respectful. The same could not be said about the Edmonton branch staff, it only takes one bad apple. No issues working with other Canadian offices.Overall good experience.

Pros

Good learning experience

Cons

Restricted to on site corporate work

Nope

What a gong show, the warehouse is horrid to work in, a complete unorganized mess. Constantly having to dig through many lifts to get what you're after, if you can even find it, if it's even in stock, if it's labeled accurately. Safety takes a back seat here as well. People would appear near me, without a hi-vis vest on or steel toes on. The warehouse is so overstuffed and congested at all times requiring you to practice unsafe forklifting just to move product around. Don't waste your time with this company.

Pros

Decent pay

Cons

No safety, no organization, bad communication between office and warehouse, Super stressful

Respectable and trusted distributor with a solid culture

Very good and fun work environment. The management are very respectful and the pay and benefits are fair. The Langley location is a bit far but worth the travel.

Pros

Culture and Management

Cons

Supportive and Collaborative!

Overall, I feel supported by the organization with respect to my desire for work life balance, manager/employee relationship dynamic, feeling my ideas are heard and advancement from a career perspective. Training and education resources are available and encouraged. Innovation is welcomed and accepted, also a company core value! Collaboration is key and my initiatives are carefully considered and most often adopted. The organization evolves with the changes we are faced with and will continue to do so in the future. I enjoy coming to work everyday and highly respect our leadership team and the direction the company is going.

Show up, work hard, you'll reap the rewards

Corporate office is very calm, supportive, and has good opportunities for advancement. From an overview position, there is some culture in the branches that can cause friction, but most is caused by particular people, not management. If you're an honest, hard working employee, you'll enjoy it here.

Pros

calm environment, opportunities for advancement, work-life balance

Cons

certain long-term cultures, some communication issues

Dont

DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT go to work for the one in winnipeg. Management doesnt care about the rules they are suppose to follow as long as the money comes in. Having to move out around 20 skids of products to get a couple peices of boards??? Customers come in mad as heck and take it out on you. No organization there what so ever. No room for their product. Just dont waste your time. Domo would be better

Pros

none

Cons

If it seems to good to be true, it probably is.

welcoming at first... then the crazies come out. One employee has full backup from management when screaming at people. Derogatory comments are the norm. Warehouse staff are great, Office staff and Head Office staff have their crazies

Pros

monthly lunches

Cons

unleashed office staff
