Bottom end wages for the industry, equipment is about the same. Organization is terrible as well. If you are used to the industry you won’t like it here

Heavy Lifting and Lots of driving all over the city

Never organized for where you will be driving. Extreme working conditions like long hours, cold weather, hot weather, awkward shapes to lift. Management hires anyone that comes in so risk of working with someone that doesn't care for safety.

Excellent company to work for

Good hours and most weekends off, if you are willing to learn and advance your skills they are willing to teach. I have learned a lot of different tasks over the years with the company and have enjoyed it.

Hard but fun at times

Hard physical work, but piece work can pay you good money for low hours, some of the management is old and stubborn however there is a great set of guys to work alongside.

Pros

able to get off work early sometimes

Cons

no lunch break

Terrible

This place is Terrible amd everything is going personal if you are not one of the gang they will try to do anything to screw you The head office is blinded and know nothing about what is goin on in the warehouse and the management down act like they own the place and untouchable Just an advice .. do not apply there because they pay the lowest money and work culture is really Terrible The new managment is really awful and first time i see managment have no managment skills If you wanna work there you have to know that you will not last for long unless you say yes and be one of the gang even when they are wrong Honestly .. one of the most trash companies i have ever seen

Pros

Horrible company

Worked for these guys for almost a year and ended up canning you for unnecessary reasons and honestly a bunch of liars that tell you one thing and do another ! Calgary location is a bunch of clowns that don’t even know the industry at all ! The only reason they haven’t went under is cause the pay so low for people minus well be a door greeter at Walmart ! Or become a bum !

Cons

Knowing that I’ve worked for a ghetto company such as this

The working enviroment was hospitable

Working for PacWest was enjoyable, work hours was 7.30am to 4.30pm. I was laid off because of work slow down. The company is one of the well-established drywall company in BC,

Pros

You bring your own lunch

Cons

Occationally the company supplied coffee, pizza and soft drinks

Terrible work evironment

Absolutely horrible place to work, people go behind your back any chance they get, supervisors are uncorridated and do nothing. All sorts of labour laws being broken at this establishment. Worked there for 4 months and never seen such an unorganized pathetic workplace, avoid working here at all costs, unless you like being a modern day slave

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Everything

Guys were fun to work with

Expected to pull 14 hours a day 5 days a week, guys did drugs while operating the machinery, not a very safe work environment, work until you fall over was the mentality there. Wouldn't pay a severance even after being there for a year... Would watch your back while working there as there are people that will throw you under the bus.

Pros

Travel

Cons

Long hours, no respect

Good Company to Work For

I enjoyed working there. I like the people and don't mind the work. I quit because I went to Europe for 3 months. They would like to hire me back but it is too slow right now.

Very disjointed

This company has been around for a long time but needs to learn to listen to their employees. They have a high turn around rate based on the internal culture.

This company does not pay a living wage for the work they required with no hope of raises.

I have been working for this company for 15 years. When I was hired I was told that there is room for advancement,wage increases,bonuses. After a couple of years they capped all wages, took away bonuses and cut hours. I would do overtime one day and told to take the next day off so they would not have to pay overtime.

Pros

weekends and holidays off

Cons

no advancement opportunities, no bonuses, non competitive wages.

sees emplyees as a dime a dozen. un organized shipper is lost

Very hard work. Opps manager I have found is good at talking. Most likely talked his way into the position. Will hang u out to dry. Was suspended for a truck running out of diesel. Found out after that they knew for years that the diesel gauge didn't work. Guess it's not needed??? I was told it's part of the pre-trip to open up the fuel tank and look to make sure there is fuel. So I guess at every stop light u may need to jump out n make sure u have air in your air tanks. You start at 6 am. And are expected to do a full pre-trip count and strap your truck and sometimes tarp and leave the yard by 630 to be on site for 7am. Just the air breaks pre-trip takes 20 minutes. Every truck I been in, in the short period of time I have worked there has had multiple items wrong with them. And there's not much rush getting them fixed. Guess it's hard to down the whole fleet when all this company cares about is there customers. Rather risk the employees license and come up with reasons why it's always the employees fault. Your expected to work over your 14 hours . Especially if your out of town. Witch is illegal. Not many drivers there with any type of driving experience. But I see why. When you go threw as many employees as they do your bound to have to bring some over from mexico like they do . I'm so happy that they let me go when they did.

Pros

nice work out

Cons

treated like meat. no time for personal life.
