Money is good but they treat you like a number.
Order Picker/ Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB24 April 2018
Management thinks they know everything but they are the biggest mistake the owner made. They treat you like a number. All they care about is themselves. They dont care about their empoyees, i knew an employee that was denied a week off to get married, another employee was denied time off because her step mom passed, that was their excuse that it was not their mom haha management is a joke at this place and even worse, the people on top are even worse than the management for letting all this happen. I dont know if the owner knows that he has got jokers running his business, i have heard good things about the owner and i hope he looks into those idiots and gets rid of them because many of the employees working there dont give their best to the company because of how they are treated. Tip to owner GET THESE JOKERS OUT OF YOUR COMPANY, THEY ARE RUINING YOUR BUSINESS.

It's not in my nature to complain.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB20 January 2018
I want people to understand that I am a hard worker, and never have much to complain about when I have officially left a job. This job was different for me.
-Management was the worst I have ever experienced. I had to wait 2 hours for product to come to the pick line before.
-A few managers in particular (who have been working for 10+ years and probably won't be leaving soon) tended to "police" rules like wearing gloves, over more important issues.
-No benefits, very difficult to reach a full-time position. Friend of ours jus reached FT after 2 years, and being laid off.
-If the shift you were hired on disappears, they will lay you off and re-offer you a job with a different schedule.
-Made it difficult to apply for EI (Employment Insurance).
-They really treat their warehouse employee's terribly. I have worked for 3 warehouses, and this is the only one I can say is actually unsafe.
Example: Someone was knocked out on shift, and didn't remember what happened. First Aid then moved him before trying to help.

Overall my experience was bad. Pay was alright and plenty of chances to leave early which was nice. If it rains there will be water all over the warehouse. They are unionized and have a lot of old employees that aren't the best.

Sorry for the Essay. Really don't want anyone to be jerked around the way I was. I was just an Order Picker and always hit targets.
Pros
Opportunity to leave early
Cons
Worst place I have ever worked, bad management, unsafe, unsafe, and very unsafe.

Great people and CEO cares
Warehouse Foreman (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB11 January 2018
very fast paced warehouse, high standards and union. working with union staff not being in the union can be a tough time, need to learn your union rules to make your work experience a good one.
the owner is an amazing man very thoughtful but at the same time expects productivity and a very clean wareshouse
hardest part working with the old time union boys and girls

No room for advancement
CS Manager (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB8 September 2017
Company does not practice what they teach, If management does not like you personally they will run you off. Instead of training there people they are quick to fire and rehire. High employee turnaround.

Unsafe warehouse environment & management has no direction
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB10 February 2016
The warehouses are poorly run, unsafe racking not bolted down and even dangerous incidents have occurred in warehouses and management has still not changed anything because the focus on productivity and profit is too great. Management puts stress on zero incidents but "incidents" are classified as shipping incorrect product , being late, and employees missing days etc... Employees are stressed out and worried about their jobs on a daily basis as employees are giving no unpaid time off for sick time or medical emergencies. If an unpaid day off is taken, employees are suspended without pay for their absences.
Co-workers are mostly nice and good to work with but the culture of this company encourages employees to backstab and sell each other out to advance within the company or look good to management because of the unrealistic expectations that management has set in terms of productivity and daily tasks.
Pros
Pay is alright
Cons
You may not have a job tomorrow

Fun work if you enjoy many things happening at once
Operations (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB17 April 2015
They are a very productive workforce but don't have the most efficient technology systems and processes in place. Business is booming almost always as they handle a diverse group of clients. You have to be careful on the warehouse floor because some of the longer serving staff have become complacent with old safety standards. For example, a clamp truck carrying a double stack of newsprint rolls weighs a combined weight of 19,000 lbs. and can travel at speeds up to 25km/hr. Needless to say, this can do some serious damage if it were to hit anything. Safety was always my main concern when working there. Secondly, was whether I would get out on time at the end of my shift. It's a busy, busy place, but that is what I found most enjoyable. Oh, and the place is very profitable, so getting bonuses is a nice perk.
Pros
Independent work, Growing Company
Cons
Most times work extends beyond normal operating hours

Productivity over safety
warehouse (Current Employee) –  alberta12 March 2015
A list of MTE Logistix's priorities in order:
1. Above all else - productivity
2. Management giving employees grief over what they deem to be low productivity
3. Gossiping, yes gossiping about co-workers. Even on other shifts
4. And finally, safety

The supervisor on my shift has two golden boy employees that were told information that was none of their business. It happened constantly and seemed to be acceptable and normal to everyone else.

The pay and benefits are good but it's amazing how much turnover there is. It's definitely not a great job. There is a LOT of heavy lifting and when OT is needed, it's mandatory.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
lack of safety, gossiping staff, very long hours when OT is needed

What will it take before safety is taken seriously!?
Picker (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB13 October 2014
What a terrible place to work! It is so unorganized, Management doesnt care about the employees who are there working day in and day out. They have a safety manual that doesnt even get applied to the warehouse floor. I have witnessed so many near misses and no one gets repremanded for anything. No one gets trained properly, no one listens to anyone except to gossip. It's just such a stressful place to be. One day someone is going to wind up dead and thats gonna be what it takes for some action to have things change
Pros
Co workers are very nice
Cons
Management is clueless, safety is a joke

Poor management
Admin (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB29 December 2013
A company with great growth potential but too focused on micromanagement and inexistent succession plan. The opportunities of advancement are directly subjective to one of the top manager's empiric criteria; which means someone will advance within the company only if such manager “thinks” the candidate can handle the job, instead of encouraging people to apply for it and go through the whole screening process in order to determine his/her previous experience, set of skills, and qualifications.
Some shifts are overloaded of work; for instance, there is a high pressure to earn impossible speeds to realize the daily tasks in order to finish them before the end of the shift. Their technology system is very obsolete, they use more than one system to control the inventory and most inventory movements are done manually, which represents a high risk for human error; however, ZERO mistakes are tolerated.

Overall pad pay for the amount of work.
Pros
Good co-workers
Cons
Work load so heavy that most of the time is impossible to take breaks

A disorganized mess
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB27 June 2013
There is no organization.
Managements' strategy for dealing with high volume? Let the workers deal with it.
Aisle numbers and bin locations are useless since product is located everywhere. When a pallet comes of production it can be slotted anywhere in the building.
Some racks are not bolted down. Some people have been at the same job for 30 years.
Pros
easy to find, ample parking
Cons
disorganized, no movement up, no raises, unsafe environment
