Many great things at Metal Supermarkets
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Alberta13 April 2018
Work in the fast paced Warehouse was hard, however time goes by quick.
I learned so many things about metals , production, fabrication and Sales.
The culture was very supportive, culturally diverse, new people were treated with respect and were allowed to make mistakes and grow from them.
The hardest part of the job was learning the computer system when I moved into sales, the ERP was in need of vast improvement or total replacement.
Managers were hands on and cared about their co-workers
The people I worked with and the friendly customer base were terrific.
I was sad to move on however, with Metal Supermarkets sales training I was able to use my experience, and land a management job in another industry.
Pros
Great hours, caring management, great sales experience
Cons
Terrible software, heavy lifting
