Overall Good Company
Safety (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB18 February 2017
Overall good company to work for, great benefits and paid sick time. Good salaries. Great tuition reimbursement program.

No place to advance if you are entry level. Continually restructuring and redoing all their programs so no job security. The corporate staff is all the same people that get shuffled around, so management is very poor and a clic type place. No work/life balance, they expect you to work all the time with no overtime pay if you are salary.
Pros
Benefits, tuition program
Cons
Poor management, no advancement

Great Place to not move
Head Shipper Receiver (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB17 May 2016
It's a small family run business. The owner and his kid treat it like their own personal piggy bank doing what they want when they want. There's no room for advancement nor do they pay a good wage. The physical labor is enormous I regularly had to lift several hundred pounds on my own.

After a couple years I just woke up one morning and couldn't do it anymore. At the end of the day if your unsure what to do with yourself this might be for you but it's not a place to be if you want to get ahead in life.
