Winnipeg office environment is very bad, too much politics and there are many people in only one community.
For warehouses, provide adequate training that is the same for everyone, right now it all goes by what the trainer feels like doing. Get rid of the leave early sheet so everyone has a chance to finish early instead of 2/3ds of the pickers being sent home and only a handful of ( mostly new ) employees are left picking , that extra downtime for everyone helps prevent injuries, maybe instead of leave early, send experienced pickers to help those who are learning/struggling. Give a 2week schedule so the floaters can have some sort of work/life balance. Provide better face and hand protection for the freezer. Stop setting employees up to fail, set the warehouse up with the intent of building a good pallet instead of just throwing large and heavy items on top of a 6ft order with soft small boxes as the base. LISTEN to your staff
Ensure prices scan correctly. It is extremely annoying for customers, and especially for those at front end! The entire line gets backed up, as those at other departments are busy. Customers start taking their anger out on the cashier. They need more people checking that the signs match what it scans for.
Give consistent shifts with patterns rather than a Tetris puzzle of shifts, train their employees instead of employees who aren't qualified to train employees train the new employees (Power equipment), actually care about their workers, stop cutting hours every other week, respect peoples flexability.
Train workers PROPERLY!
-have 6-7 workers per shift not 4. That lessen the stress due to many sick calls and heavy workload
- better hours ,better pay 15$ minimum wage
-don't give the workers shift that ends at 23:00 and then morning shift the next day
-don't abuse 10hr space between shifts like worker ends at 23:00 his eight hour shift and then getting 5am or 7am shift , just because some one called in sick
-don't give workers 11:30 - 20:00 shifts on the weekends , workers can't even make plans
-train management on how to order, and schedule properly , emotional intelligence
The overall culture needs to improve here. Managers, Store Managers need to be following what the OHS acts says word for word. Department managers need to be able to communicate effectively with their employees, their team. I am sure there are policies in that place they need to enforce. There needs to be more team work, respect, collaboration, getting along with your team. Great benefits, but if you want your staff to stay change needs to happen. We need the young workers in there but we also need to include them that they are part of the team. The work environment needs to be respectful, and positive. Give people a chance. Train them properly and treat others the way you would want to be treated.
Treat the employees like a family like a team member.
Give people a clear path to move up. Stop letting certain employees break all the rules and abuse and harass other employees with no consequences. This gives the company an awful reputation and makes droves of people quit because they don't want to be in a horrible environment.
Maybe start with a better pay scale. Most people just get by on these pays. It’s hard to motivate people when they can’t live off what they are being paid by their employer. Then just treat your employees with respect.
Help job seekers learn about the company by being objective and to the point.
