okay tmeporary place to wprk
Sorter (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON27 February 2018
If you're okay working in a hot, fast paced warehouse for a little bit over minimum wage then this is the place to be. If you need a quick job for a couple of months then apply, use benefits then quit once you've found work else where. hours vary 8am start and finish whenever the lead tells you you're done. sometimes 15 hour work days. OT is paid. must work holidays.
Pros
its a job, 4 day work weeks, benefits after 30 days
Cons
long hours, must work 1 weekend date, hot, not paid enough

a new industry that I learned. It was interesting to see a large laundry facilitysuch as this.

Packager (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB29 June 2017
Typical day at work starts at 7 in the morning up to 5:30 pm. I learned how to be accurate since I am doing the packaging before the delivery of lines to various hotels. It is a very multicultural workplace where anyone is welcome to apply. Most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction that you give to your internal and external customers at the end of the day.
Pros
3 days off
Cons
Long hours

You are treated as worthless meat
Billing Clerk/ Office Administrator (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC27 June 2017
I learned that hard work and dedication (attendance and being a team player) do nothing to help you in this company, the management team treat you as less than human and will dump you without reason - stay away from this company

Horrible employers!!!
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Langford, BC21 February 2017
Poor management! No ethic values! Only care about money not customers or employees! GM makes more in bonuses in a year, then 3 production employees yearly salary. They are so cheap they have their Christmas party in a cramped lunchroom. Very unsafe place to work because they never buy new equipment and the matanince are the micky mouse show! In the summer it gets so hot your going to pass out worksafe bc would shutdown the plant if they knew, because no proper air conditioners. There are so many more problems you could right a book.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to name them all!
