Pleasant workplace, quality and useful products
Order Picker (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 6 June 2016
Very interesting and numerous gardening and woodworking products plus vast amounts (3000+) of other items (for renovations/innovations) which makes for interesting order-picking on any given day. No two orders are the same which makes for interesting hours of order picking. Orders may be selected in various ways (Voice Command, RF Scanner, loose/directly), but it's a very busy environment.
Training is provided and supervisors are very personable. The company's culture on the warehouse floor is easily seen- a fast paced environment for the astute worker.
Co-workers are helpful, friendly and many are from various other countries before making Canada their home- makes for interesting conversations too. Equal Employment Opportunity lives here!
As with most warehouses, long hours walking and standing in steel-toes while moving often heavily laden carts may take a toll esp. on feet. Yet, depending on the office assigned, there are cool therapeutic spots to really take the load off at break times.
This company provides affordably priced hot lunches every day (optional, since many will still take their own lunches and snacks) and has one of the largest accommodating canteen/lunchroom.
