I worked here on one of my first post-secondary co-ops several years ago. Horrible experience. Non-stop bullying and harassment and taunting by co-workers and supervisors. Since it was a co-op I just bit my tongue and kept my mouth shut because I needed the experience, the credit and the reference. Now that I am older and have established myself in my career I feel comfortable in revealing what it was truly like here. I've never met so many miserable and ignorant people as I have working here. The start and end date I put in this review are not the true ones in order to keep my anonymity. I'm sure they will do whatever it takes to get this review deleted so my hope is that at least one person who may be considering working there reads it and reconsiders applying.
Lots of hours
Low pay, horrible treatment from co-workers and supervisors, little to no training
Well established company, with good equipment and commitment to quality. New ownership is committed to improving benefit package ie dental, medical and retirement services.
Good equipment, very competitive which equates to lots of work. Wages are very good
Hours worked per day can be very high
They'll pay you a minimum and make you do the work of many. Your work isn't valued. Don't expect to be able to take your breaks, if you try to take a break, they threaten to send you home if you "don't have anything to do". Team work isn't encouraged there, you're not allowed to speak with your co-workers, even if it has to do with the job you're doing. You'll be constantly harassed by by the HR manager. Not a great place to work!
Co-workers were pretty good. Office staff and management couldn't care less for employee complaints or work safety. If conditions are not safe... shut up and just do it anyway or you won't be called back to work. They will just say sorry work is slow and bring in someone else who will put up and shut up.
Some of the other drivers were great
Management staff was horrible. Unaproachable
I enjoyed most of the people I worked with but some people in this company like to play the favouritism game. I believe this company would be a great place to work for is some things were sorted out properly. better hope for the future!
Long hours, fast working, nice people.
Great way to save money at this job, for one you won't have time to shop. :-p
