Save your energy and experience - better used elsewhere!
Avoid this place and save your time!- seems like they have gone through a complete overhaul- practically fired a lot of the people within the sales, ops and finance departments and "trying to build a culture". No leadership within the sales, operations and finance teams. Poor communication both internal/external and everyone trying to save their back. Employees are considered "backups" and with no internal clarity on roles. Mgmt seems to be readying the place for a sale to private equity investor- Save your energies and work somewhere else.

Bus but you feel like you accomplished tasks
The work load for maintenance was heavy and due to it being a production facility the demand was high for a quick fix. If there were major issues or extended down time as long as there was a good reason and supporting backup management was fair.

Go ahead if you are desperate
Try to avoid this place especially the weekend shift. Hypocritical supervisors will allow you to work unsafe to hit targets unless the big bosses are around. Constant mental and physical pressure is a normal thing. Couple times management will ask you to work overtime then they will expect you to do so without asking for your availability.
Long story short : Employer’s profit over employees
Pros
Average pay, okay schedule, good coworkers
Cons
Stress, hypocrisy, abusement

unfair rises the weekend shift supervisor is bully especially in the morning they pick on people to look funny. They expect you to over work 2 hours ahead or over your secluded shift for their own benefit (production) they don’t appreciate your efforts but they make unnecessary rude comment I have worked for 3 years here the worst 3 years of bullying, unfair wages and profit shares they have lost so many experienced seniors for their bad attitude. Go somewhere else if you want to be treated right. They expect you to do 10 different things over your own job and if you say no and stand up for yourself expect to be bullied and picked on every day. Don’t every come here if you want a peace of mind and appreciated efforts

good
Overall good place to work. There is a real family environment with regards to the employees.

There is quite a cultural divide between the sales staff and the warehouse workers.

Lost their way but back on track
Metrie is a company of good knowledgeable people but they have restructured a number of times over the past 6 years and this has caused confusion in roles and responsibilities. They also brought in a lot of American leadership which changed the culture of the company. This has now been rectified and they are back on track with Canadian leadership and a structure that worked well in the past.

Staff is incredible, management and headoffice need improvement.
I was hired through and employment agency and after 3 mths still had to start over and work another 3 mths before benefits whereas someone hired off street only had to do 3 mths and if a friend refers you they get money the longer you stay. Have safety manuals but training is very lax and you aren't trained on the poisons you work with on a daily basis.
Pros
above min wage
Cons
Unfair hiring practices

Great Place to Work
Amazing place to work. The company awards individuals who work hard, and are passionate about the company. Management is great, always encouraging their employees, and rewarding them for hard work. Environment is always positive, and everyone tries to help each other get to the next position. There is constantly new positions opening within the company as people move up, so there is a lot of room for growth.

Metrie really values their employees.


There are bad days just like any other job, but everyone is always encouraging to help out to help relieve work load.


Best company I have ever worked for.
Pros
work Hours, Travel, Career Growth, Training, Courses
Cons
Can be stressful when busy

Horrible
Very negative people who make fun of each other everyday. The work wasn't that bad, until you heard someone open their mouth. I guess it was the area because everyone was like that. The pay didn't go up very much and you had to ask for a raise to make a significant pay increase.
Pros
Overtime
Cons
10 hour shifts, no choice, no life

Management does not know how to manage people
The culture at Metrie is one of belittling name calling and if you try to make it better by encouraging talking and getting to the bottom of things, you are let go. Tight knit group who have worked together for a long time. I found better ways of doing things which intimidated the old school folks which ended my career there. Best thing that could have ever happened to me was to be rid of that place.
