Unpredictable hours, poor management, everyone is a number
Account Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Alberta12 August 2018
Overall isn’t a bad job. Def not long term. The worst parts about this job is the unpredictable hours on a day to day basis. Not sure when your getting off work. It’s all paid salary which is a perk, but summer time and Christmas time are extremely busy and your alone majority of the time. Lots of driving around which can be nice for breaks in between but not so fun in the winter months. I had an issue with one of my managers not really supporting me in this roll. You also have to do all the ordering and felt like you were always working around the clock and always thinking what would I have to do the next day. Like I said overall not a bad job, but there is little advancement in this company and it’s very much a numbers game.
Pros
Salary, Stats Off, good benefits
Cons
Long hours (unpredictable), very little support, not enough praise, driving

Not your typical driving job, but can be fun at times.
CLASS 1 DRIVER (Current Employee) –  BC3 August 2018
Typical day starts at 5am, 10-14 hour days.

Job is approximately 20% driving, 80% moving cases and bottles.

Management is overall good, but will squeeze every last ounce out of you if you let them, to the point of exhaustion.

Workplace culture has been better.

The hardest part of the job is frequent schedule changes, long days, and common equipment failures, from trucks to power jacks. But the job does pay hourly.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the open road, and meeting the customers at the some of the delivery locations.
Pros
For a driving job, the hourly compensation is hard to beat.
Cons
No work/family life balance.

you are a gear in a well-run machine
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB24 May 2018
This is a big global company, and you know it. If you don't know it, you will find out very fast.

There is sometimes a lack of humanity with how they handle things, because it's so big that there's a policy somewhere to handle most cases. Every thing has a standard procedure or method.

If you like working your solid 40 hours for what is generally the highest payscale in this industry, don't ask too many questions, enjoy job security and never criticize management- this is a great place to be. People do stay for many years. If you are creative and enjoy unique/non-repetitive tasks coming up frequently in your work, you will suffer here.
Pros
fair pay, market leader, benefits, security
Cons
you are a splinter of a big wooden ship sailing the seas of commerce, And the ship never docks at port.

A job
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON4 December 2018
If you're looking for a short term job, this is for you.

But if you want a career and to grow and better yourself, this is not for you.

My first year with the company, I earned 42k. 10 years later I was earning 45k flat, NO MORE BONUS, NO MORE COMMISSION.

Do I really have to go on?

Glorified merchandising position.

Oh and be prepared the aches & pains, this is a very physical job, you will slug most days.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Too many to list.

Disability (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON16 August 2018
Poor management in leadership roles. No work/life balance at all. Salary was not up to par when compared to similar jobs in the industry. Employees were not always recognized for their hard work and efforts.

Management is dumbfounding
Distribution Manager (Former Employee) –  GTA, ON25 October 2018
Kids are put into management positions without any background, experience or previous training. They are expected to learn on the floor and are shuffled into new positions about every two years. The workers are the ones who are forced to deal with these new borns each time.
The people on the floor are excellent to work with. Working as a team is not the way it works there. Co-workers are singled out to work alone and are expected to get things done like clockwork.
I have said enough for now. This is only my opinion.
Pros
Cafeteria serves good food only on day shift
Cons
You will start on night shift with no light at the end of the tunnel.

Not an ideal long term job.
Account Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB3 April 2018
As a part time job, this company is great. However, for full-time, there is very little recognition from management about your job performance. Management also does not generally follow their job descriptions and are usually in "meetings". In a merchandising role, it is expected that you align your work day hours with the delivery times of the orders you work. This could mean that you start your day at noon if your orders are on a late truck, and you do not find out until maybe the night before, but most often the morning of. As sales, it is expected that you work a 10 hour day minimum, even though your salary is based off an 8 hour day. You are given no sick days, and your holiday days are very "negotiable" in the way that if management has already cleared your holiday but decides they need you for one of the days, they will just take away that day.
Pros
Good pay for students/part time for what the work is.
Cons
Most everything else.

Great Company to work for
Geo-box Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC30 July 2018
If you're new to delivery and driving; training is available until you're comfortable on your own. Co-workers are friendly and very helpful good overall morale. Management's door was always open and available. Very physically demanding position to start as seniority usually determines how many cases to be lumped falling to the last guy on the list (keeps you in good shape!). Some merchandising is involved during the week to keep you working to get your hours. Highly recommend :)
Pros
Lots of hours during peak summer
Cons
Slower during fall and spring

Tough place to work but decent compensation
Warehouse Technician (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON24 May 2018
Long term employees hold much clout and their transgressions are met with indifference but while the work is hard the compensation package is good.

Typical day at work is giving an assigned amount of cases of chips to pick and load onto trucks, enough work to last 8 hours.
Pros
Good Compensation
Cons
Long Hours

If you don't mind a constantly stressful job with little work-life balance, you'll get rewarded by being promoted every 2 years and paid a good salary.
