Fun for a while

It's union, that has pros and cons. The work is physically demanding. It helps if you can read an address lable and count to 100. Gets pretty boring after a while. Not always protected from the weather. Good people working there, but management doesn't challenge us enough. Steady shift but start and end times vary with volume. Opportunities for advancement are overrated and require decades of seniority. Benefits are mediocre, but you get them for a 30 hour shift. It's a job.

Pros

Union, benefits, nice people, not much responsibility

Cons

High school mentality, boring, no incentives

It good to work there, but so much unorganized management

Very fast pace work,and physically demanding, so much favoritism at work, pay isn't good compared to work, hours are very odd, overall it not bad company to work.

Good work life balance

Good work life balance. If learning is not your top priority and you are ok with average salary, this is the best place to work for. Low iteration rate

Pros

60% discounts on all shipping

Cons

Very limited career growth

Driver - Ok pay if you can stick it out.

Unionized workplace. Fast paced and challenging. The pay is pretty good if you can make it 2 years. Co-workers were all fine. Mgmt only cares about your productivity, so if you’re good they will leave you alone.

Pros

Not stuck in an office or warehouse. Meeting customers on the road.

Cons

Unionized, so seniority rules. Heavy work load, expect lots of deliveries/pickups, as well as a high level of productivity. Some heavy lifting.

keep up or get out

The 'management style' here is brutal. Basically, one either keeps up or gets out. There is very little union support. So NEVER say you can; 't or you won't or you need more training. Also, "being nice" (defined as always saying yes to any demand no matter how unreasonable or unethical) is expected. If you can learn quickly and execute without error and you don't mind being unappreciated the money and benefits are ok. Or if you have a masochistic bent and enjoy being overworked, brutally criticized and publically humiliated then this is the company for you.

Pros

good pay and benifits

Cons

cruel managers and a weak union

Good salary for the work we do.

Union environment. Off site management, which at times can be difficult to get the support you need when you need it. Good team environment, working together to support each other to complete our daily tasks.We are required to lift up to 70 pounds.

Pros

Half hour unpaid lunch

Good job for uneducated persons

Good job, keep in shape. Decent benefits and pay. Unionized, job security. Depending on shift, there are four ten hour days available. Management seems to not care about staff as much as they care about the numbers.

Environnement famille/travail presque nul

Le salaire est bien, les avantages sociaux aussi, mais à cause du syndicat les conditions entre le travail et la famille sont presque nul.

Pros

Salaire, avantages sociaux

Cons

Horaire de travail selon l'ancienneté dans la compagnie
