Staff is incredible, management and headoffice need improvement.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 20 March 2018
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.
Account Representative (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 31 May 2017
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.

Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Bolton, ON – 24 July 2016
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.
Manufacturing Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 12 April 2016
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.
