Toxic environment with good co-workers

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The place is now Loblaws but hasn't changed at all. Work you to death, don't expect weekends off,mandatory O.T every chance they get including stat holidays which is great for the money,terrible for home life especially if you have bad weekends like Monday/Tuesday as you'll be forced to either work the stat and only have one day off or you'll have the stat and be forced to work the next day of your weekend. They actually forced a man that was dying of cancer to walk through the facility just to get papers so he could change his benefits and insurance 3 days before he died. Do not expect to be treated like a human in this facility.

Pros

Pay, benefits and co-workers

Cons

Good place to work

Not the easiest job, people might complain, but they’re the same ones that don’t wanna work. You need to be physically strong. Just go there, do your 8, and then come back home. Don’t act tough or try to talk down to others, you’ll be out before your feet hit the ground. Be humble, be nice, be strong, and you’ll do good.

Pros

Good pay, good workout, good benefits, union.

Cons

Could get injured

Hard word but doable, employees appreciation bbq, xmas party etc

Can be a fun place to work, but at times can also be very frustrating. there are quotas that you have to meet every week to avoid getting written up but on the plus side if you surpass those quotas you receive a bonus.

Fine its a good place to work if you don't mind barely getting 40 hours a week. if buisneesss is slow they send you home with out pay. management doesnt care at all about employees, you are just a number to them.

Pros

Good pay rate thats it

The pay-rate is what attracts people there thats it the work environment is pretty s*****d up.No job security and everything is rushed..If your a order picker your pretty much s*****d... Union is there just to say ya we have a union but does not do anything to help you out... During my time there I met 2 supervisors that were fair rest all of them are a bunch of a** a lot of favoritism. Stress level at lim is ---- experiencing life at a rate of several wtf per hour Best of luck for anyone who joins there

Pros

Good pay

Cons

High Stress Job

While this position paid well and gave job security with benefits, management and the union do not communicate well. This creates a very high stress environment, where people are often written up, etc.

Aabsolutely the worst place i have ever worked.

work environment sucks, everyone is racing to meet ridiculously high set standards. it seems as though its all about the money and the workers don't matter. The company only holds on to you until just before the end of your probationary period, then they let you go. they supposedly have the highest termination rate in Durham. I was also told that if i went full time i would get a $2.00 raise, never saw it, nor did i see the $.40 hourly bonus for working in the freezer. I was also never given the proper attire to work in the freezer, i had a pair of snow pants that were two sizes too small, and i also had to bring in my own jacket because they didn't have one for me.

Pros

none

Cons

lots of mandatory overtime.

Good pay but at a price

Typical days at Logistics in Motion (LIM) depend on which department you are in, and can vary in workload and pace. A pre-shift briefing is held at the beginning of the day to inform employees about workload and potential hazards and operations changes. After this, employees work independently to complete tasks that are unique to their position ( selector, loader, receiver etc.) Management consists of floor supervisors who will direct employees to perform particular tasks that need to be completed. They also ensure that Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) are being followed and the work environment is safe. Co-workers, like any place of employment, vary in terms of personality and skill level. Some are polite and helpful, while others seem to be oblivious of events taking place around them, and impede others. The hardest part of the job is maintaining 100% standard performance. The warehouse is on the Manhattan system, and tracks employees' performance based on a standardized model. Many employees have voiced their concerns about the toughness to achieve 100% consistently without sacrificing safety for performance. The most enjoyable part of the job is the money, which is quite good even at the entry level position. Raises occur every 6 months, and the benefits are also quite generous.

Pros

The money

Cons

Long hours that can often drag on

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?

hard to describe read below

Hokay So this place isn't as awful as people say it is, it really just depends on what shift your on. First shift is a overall good shift, all the top management and supervisors are in and most of the employees are top of the seniority. Second shift is a disaster, building is trashed everyone's a dbag, and there are to many employees for the supervisors to control so it's just general chaos. Third shift is pretty good one your used to the hours, Supervisors know what's going on and the building is pretty empty so you can have a pretty quiet shift and the ability to work. As stated above the union is pretty week, but they do give Benifits and job security.

Pros

awesome people on your shift

Cons

not so awesome people on your shift
