In a few words, Mackie owners and the people who you work with are great. HR is in their own bubble and they only make themself nice to the owners and the CEO who was running both finance and IT was a disaster and very cold to everyone. Only wish the owner knew that. Sometimes it is not the money that makes people happy at work, it is the environment.

Dead slow in the winter months but by summer time it's booming! Expect at least 45+ hours a week for work. Awesome management who get straight to the point. They don't pawn you off or make things out to be your fault, solid. The pay is Okay, but unless you have a class 5 or above with interest to drive a moving van/truck, don't expect to work your way up too quick. It's a good summer job or first job for someone young who wants hard work

Labour is essentially expendable on a whims notice, don't work here if you plan on paying rent/groceries/leading your own life.great guys/crews to work with but 0 loyalty to experienced workers from management and dispatch. They like to string guys along by telling them what they want to hear when things are busy so they don't lose labour but then turn on a dime, essentially damning their guys for other opportunities and work

Mackie Moving Markham Management need to review manpower on the floor. Lots of double job people working here and those are very lazy always depend on newly hire temps. Manager and supervisor have friendship with all lazy people so always depend on newly hire temps for work. need to reshuffle management structure for Markham location. need to evaluate each higher position and pull them out on floor to reduce work load. few bad people need let them layoffs. Many people asking management for layoff but somehow management not give them layoffs which is big concern to work on floor. need quick action right now.

The workers and drivers of Mackie Moving Services are all great and friendly people, but the management can be hard to work with at times. They are good people who are trying their best to help but can be hard to work with sometimes. When out on a job, the office workers can be hard to get a hold of, but overall it was an incredible year, and I had a great time.

There was zero training; the supervisor was too busy. They will let you go before you hit 3 months so they don't have to pay your benifits
Pros
hour long lunch
Cons
no training/management

Too much responsibility not enough pay, excellent co workers, average management, horrible ownership, outdated equipment, has two 15 minute breaks and 30 lunch free to take them whenever but I found I was overloaded with work most of the time so I would not take any breaks and just work through the entire day otherwise I would end up staying late to ensure things are done for the morning. they run on a skeleton crew in the warehouse so a lot of responsibility was dumped on me. managers don't really do much they just sit at the desk and do things on their phone rarely come down to departments at the back of the warehouse to see if everything is going alright meanwhile they have people slugging around 500 pound appliances with barely any supervision especially at night when they have only 1 person working in the appliance department.
Pros
Excellent employees
Cons
Horrible pay for the responsibilities given

A good company to work for. Summer is a busy time of year, and there was always something to learn. The hardest part of the job was always being on call.

I worked here up until my 2 days before my probation. Was absolutely amazing at the job and figured things out even there staff couldn't making them lots of money for items not being sent back, dedicating all my time and effort into the job, 12-16 hour days and they treat you like garbage. They'll tell you you are not right for the job meanwhile you're doing better then there own drivers ! Good place to make easy money for a month or 2 before you find something good. THEY DO NOT WANT TO PAY BENEFITS AFTER 3 MONTHS FOR NEW PEOPLE.
Pros
Get to see ontario
Cons
12+ hours no lunch

They mostly hire short term contracts so they don't have to pay benefits once your probation period is over. Expect to spend most of your free time here to be spent within the office for minimum wage.
