Terrible Union Environment
If you have advanced unionized experience, it may work for you. Unionized employees are divided and and difficult to work with, which makes it a very toxic environment.
Pros
Compensation package
Cons

Good
I don't mind hourly rate but hrs should be around 60 for all the drivers. Like junior drivers just got 40 or 44 etc . Then I can run my home properly

Started good
Over time things became worst. No managent can think outside a box. Will hire degrees that have nothing to do with the industry. They got rid of all older employees who have proven their loyalty to the company. Hired new but had no one ro train them?

Good pay, good benefits atrocious culture!
It is a good company to work for in terms of compensation for the work performed. Job security I feel is very strong. These are the only pros to being employed here. After being employed here for 1-2yrs it is very safe to say you will strongly dislike working here but the compensation will play a big role in sticking around. There is too much to complain about.

Average working experience
Although it was my first job in Canada, it was an average experience working with company. Colleagues are very supportive, however the higher management is not really keen to help and provide proper training.

Martin Brower of Canada Co is a fun and the best work place
Martin Brower has friendly employees. They had coffee everyday for the employee at the office and the warehouse employee. It was the best employer that I got hired. The employees at every department if collaboratively working together and help each other to get the satisfaction from the customers or clients. I was very happy to got that job as a warehouse coordinator but the system went down and make me lost the job.

Fast paced, high energy job with a focus on the customer.
Fast paced environment. Management is clueless to the day to day problems on the floor or just don't care. The scheduling is an on call system that is tough to get a life balance to work

No life work balance
If you have no personal life and don't mind being on call 24/7 and starting work anytime from midnight to noon then this is the job for you. Also they have runs that are like 2 day runs way up north 800 plus kms.
Basically you are their slave and will do as you told or else you will be suspended without pay or fired. Union seems useless and dosent do anything.

Decide for yourself if you're willing to sell your soul for some extra $$$. I decided not to.

Lots of money, no life.
24/7 operation. Unionized. Top 20 or 30 drivers on the list are okay the rest are used and abused.
Great place to start your driving career at a young age as you will work your way up but the seniority list makes starting middle age very difficult as there is very little room for advancement on the list through attrition.

Poor dc managment
DC managers in Brampton grossly incompetent. More interested in leaving early on Fridays to go drinking then managing the union. Union owns the management, even though they are paid way over market reference. Embarrassingly unproductive group. Massive middle manager turnover should be a very telling sign of the mismanagement at upper levels.

ZERO Work Life Balance
Work comes first here... even if it means working late, from home and on weekends for a low base salary. Make sure you dont expect to get an annual raise after all of those extra hours worked in a high stress environment. And the only people who reap the benefits are management because they get the bonuses... not the planners that are actually saving the company all of the money.

And most of our jobs are being replaced in the US but they are pretty much waiting for us to leave instead of paying out packages.

Extremely bad environment
Don't work there. The bosses don't know what they are doing and will abuse hard workers. They are dismissive and disrespectful -rule by fear. There is no point in speaking up about issues.
Cons
Long unpaid hours. Disrespectful environment encouraged.

Terrible management and non-friendly co-workers
Management treats you like you're stupid. They all come from the same warehouse but don't know what's going on or how to fix problems. They have all worked together at another warehouse which makes the problem even worse. They do not listen to employee input. There are many bullies when working on the floor which does not make the workplace pleasant. You will not rise in seniority for a very long time making the work repetitive and boring for newer employees. The most enjoyable part of the shift is when you get to go home.
Pros
High wage, good benefits
Cons
Poor management, poor supervision, poor work culture

Good luck
If you want to find a place where your soul goes to die, then come work here.

The people you will work with are great and that’s good because you will be spending A LOT of time with them. No work life balance and if you do leave early, it’s because you’re going home to workor because our just can’t take it anymore. Can’t even go to bbq because I have to check emails. Would never get paid l right ...work way more extra than you get lieu days for. Your team leads comment on every little thing you do, make inappropriate comments, argue with each other in front if you and “perception” word used way to much it makes you sick Managers/team leads works 24/7and expects the same from you (but won’t say it). And senior leadership... they are on another planet.


The benefit plan is so old: no RRSP until 2 years, you start with 3 weeks vacation but don’t get another week until 10 years and no flex plan. Also need to wait 6months for your benefits vacation but other companies give them to you on first day. You need to work evenings and on weekends and you will never get Xmas vacation.
Pros
Coworkers

Rapidly Changing and Growing Company
This supply chain team is a mess, lead by new leaders who have little to no supply planning experience and focus on inventory objectives only. You will be thrown into the fire with little training and you will be expected to work weekends on a regular basis but they will not tell you this when they hire you.

There are a lot of opportunities for advancement but they are given to senior leadership's "favourites" instead of those that are actually deserving.


Also, this place is looking to establish a certain culture of young people... they fired all of the "old" people in early 2018... isn't that illegal?
Pros
free lunches, great coworkers
Cons
Long Hours, strong politics, no work life balance
