Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall I myself personally had a great experience working for this company the management team alway treated me with the upmost respect. However I do believe they need to take a real hard look at there permanent long term employees who are constantly bashing the company’s name and that has absolutely ruined the working environment making it very hard for new employees to adjust. There are also a lot of two faced asso’s in other words they are very jealous when someone new gets offered advancements they don’t qualify for. The salary isn’t great considering 95% of the work is very heavy lifting and non stop walking.Lots of overtime if you like to work

Pros

Great Management Team

Cons

Poor working environment
Was this review helpful?

People coming and going w/poor work ethic

Lots of new hires who do the bare minimum and dont follow instructions. Always correcting others mistakes and/or laziness. Lots of employees socializing during work time impeding those who are legitimately trying to work. 1/12 people doing 90% of the work. Regular building meetings which most employees ignore what's said. Frustrating and draining to employees who are actually attempting to do well.

Terrible managment and team attitude not very accepting of new people

The managers only cared about buisness and not you, the pay was very unwhelming considering your lifting car parts off of top shelfs for 1$ above minimum, and everybody i know that has worked there didnt stay longer than 6 months

Pros

Grunt work

Cons

Just about everything you can imagine

Not a good place to work!!!!

Reason1. Terrible management 2. Continuous cycle of staff (people come and go on a regular basis)3. Salary is not enough for a person to survive on their own. Increases are VERY SMALL. 4. No way to move up or do better in the company 5. Pushed to pick orders for 8 hours 6. NO TALKING!!!7. Team leads are miserable all the time - making it uncomfortable and difficult to work for them.

Pros

Cant think of any

Cons

Low wages, toxic work environment, supervisors are always in a bad mood

Do not work here.

Do not work here!! This company will treat you like garbage. Everyone quits working there. Run out the door like everyone else does after one day or just a half of a day of working there !!

Pros

The double standards and favouritism may work out in your favour.

Cons

Company should be going out of business soon.

Fun workplace

a long day with two quarter picking and third with stocking. at the end of day we need to pack all the stuff and ship it. They have some toxic and dangerous goods as well so we have to be careful all the time.

No nonsense, supportive, respectful

Friendly management and staff that made me feel welcome and at ease right from the start. Excellent training in all aspects of learning the job as well as orienting me with company procedures and processes. Great salary. First job I ever worked at that wasn't overrun with gossip. Management showed employee appreciation with BBQ's in the summer and monthly birthday cakes for all who wish to participate, along with costume and pumpkin carving at Halloween.

Fast paced, not stressful & enjoyable.

8.5 hour work days. Half hour lunch & two 15 minute breaks per shift. Vacation days increase upon completing anniversary levels (5 years, 10 years....). You can advance in the company if you have the skills and a positive work ethic. Many warehouse associates have advanced. As with any job, you get what you put into it. Health benefit package is great. $95 reimbursement for annual safety footwear purchase. 6 personal (sick) days given. $100 net incentive offered for each personal day not taken in a year. Christmas bonus, dependant on years of service, given in December. Free BBQ lunch given on each long weekend in the summer months. Free birthday cake each month to celebrate employee birthdays. Free Christmas party in December with dinner, cocktails, music & dancing, prizes & taxi there and back. 50/50 draw every 2 weeks offered by social committee. Employees can purchase any products the company carries at exceptional discounts. Busy times are generally spring and fall and can be challenging. Most of the people are enjoyable to work with. Drama does happen but is minimal and not tolerated. Management are accessible and easy to talk to.

To roxic

You could never voice your opinion and it felt like management was out to get you if you disagreed with them. I was comfortable there until management changed then going to work was a chore. NEVER work for the location in balzac in alberta there is no future there

Pros

N/a

Cons

Horrible management
Was this review helpful?

Very poorly ran company

This company was ridiculous to work for. There was one girl in there who was doing everything in her power to make me and a few others angry she even so much as went in my locker and cut my shoelaces. Management is miserable nobody ever smiles getting paid minimum wage as you work your butt off running up and down aisles searching for parts. There is little to no morale .. The smell of the place burns your nostrils. Nothing is where it should be. I could keep going but it isn't worth it.. I left after 2 months it was rhe worst job I EVER had!!

Brutal

Low pay, no training, terrible management. There's no job security or advancement at this place. I watched multiple employees excel at their jobs, or break records regarding work scores be denied annual wage increases, I've seen people be fired immediately after parental leave. I've watched people with a work place injury do everything they can to recover to be terminated when they're deemed fit to work.

Pros

They follow the law and pay minimum wage

Cons

This section isn't large enough

Toxic environment

Bad place to put roots into, Management is not respectful, nor understanding. (will talk bad about you when your back is turned) Supervisor was great to work with, but wasn't supported at all, a lot of staff turnaround due to the lack of HR (is sub contracted out)

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, poor setup

Cons

Rigid hours, only Full-time

Terrible place to work

Terrible place to work, everybody around you is miserable but can you blame them because there doing a extremely repetitive job, days are very long and boring, theres rude staff all over and nobody bothers to ask who you even are when you start working there. Cant throw everyone under the bus because there was a small few of very nice people but majority were rude misreable and disrespectful.

Run

Don’t go near this place it is horribly mismanaged. Management is clueless and not helpful at all. Can’t honestly say it’s same at all DC’s but where I was you have to figure everything out on your own and then get yelled at if it’s wrong. And people always pass the buck never own up to their mistakes.

Pros

Can’t think of any

Cons

Everything

Great staff, great management

Fun place to work. Was part of the set-up crew. Management took the time to train us properly and see where we best fit into the fold. Great location(Balzac close to Cross Iron Mills) Training is great as well

Pros

Easy job, not to stressful

Cons

Can get a little hectic

Misguided management, no where to go, low wages.

Typical warehouse work, stocking, picking, shipping, etc. Main issue being that the wages are low for warehouse work, especially considering the majority of product in the place is automotive parts that are rather large and heavy. No pay increase for learning new departments or getting machinery licensing. Management is constantly changing rules and guidelines for different departments, and the changes get lost along the lines of communication from supervisors to the floor, causing lots of confusion. Feel very under valued and definitely not respected at work. Morale is always low and full time employees that have been there for a few years are now leaving due to the direction of the company. Lots and lots of temps come and go and seem to be replacing direct hire jobs. The only benefit with this place is you get 6 paid sick days a year and you have every weekend off.

One of the best jobs I have ever had

Modern Sales and the team that work there are pretty great. When I was hired they had a good training program, the leads worked with me to show me everything, and my coworkers gave me a hand getting up to speed. They do a lot for their employees like BBQ's and benefits and stuff. They have different shifts and are able to work with you if you need to move some things around. They are pretty flexible. They aren't union either which is great - if you actually do a good job you get rewarded, not just because you have been there for so many years. Over all just a really great place to work.

Pros

Great teamwork, understanding management, really good benefits, full time and consistent hours, no drama or high school behavior
