Mind numbing
Courier Owner/Operator (Former Employee) –  Port Alberni, BC7 May 2018
Worked as an owner/operator courier. Was steady work but that's about the best part. Found it mind numbing after the first month. Not much understanding/support from management and as cheap as can be. Had to work on my wedding day as the owner/op positions don't have any vacation/sick days. It was a good experience as it motivated me to quit and go into the electrical trade.
Pros
working without direct supervision
Cons
mind numbing repetitive work.

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON30 April 2018
Long hours on your feet with minimal breaks. Very hot warehouse. Some conflict with permanent employees. Did not feel valued as a temp worker. Is good for short term but not too sure if I would work there again on a long term basis.

Purolator is dealing with a lot of competition from many angles, stress is evident in many areas.
