Fail to pay employee on time!
sorter (Former Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON6 December 2018
I was disappointed with the human resource management team. After you enroll to the position they don't care for your pay concern and etc. Human resource team have very little communication within their team to deliver help asap for their employees. They delay paying without notice and do not take concern seriously. If u need your pay on time don't work for them.
Pros
n/a
Cons
delay pay process!

typical day at work
Warehouse employee (Former Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON6 December 2018
we as the sorters on the floor, are required just to stay on the floor for the duration of our shift, working until there was a designated break, managers would often walk around and not help the floor employees when they were to struggle. their objective was to make sure we were working and thats it.

Management doesn't care about workers
Am sorter (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB14 November 2018
At first, working there was fun until they wanted to take advantage of me. There is no communication with the staff, you try to be nice and they are so rude..( definitely not an environment I want to work in).There has be some kind of communication going on between you and the person working. They expected me to do a lot of heavy lifting and loading of trailers, by myself, which was ridiculous. For doing so much, two workers were needed for that job. The manager was very rude, and doesn't care about anything you have to say. The staff gossips a lot, I always had to keep looking over my shoulders...

Good workout, but bad place to work
AM Sorter (Former Employee) –  Owen Sound, ON12 November 2018
The job itself is not the worst. The AM Sorter position at the Owen Sound depot is actually a pretty good workout. You unload a full 48' trailer and then a partially loaded 48' trailer, then you are asked to load up a delivery van or two. Not too bad of a job, but all the drivers have their own way of how they like their trucks loaded. So, there is a slight learning curve.

Caution with this job is a must as whoever is loading these trucks does a poor job and tends to put the heavy stuff at the top, so it can be a bit dangerous. To get these items down, I was told "just give the bottom part a pull and let the items on top fall". Lots of stuff breaks with this terrible method.

The AM Sorter position has a high turnover rate due to the manager not being able to deal with minor inconveniences. This manager would rather fire you than deal with anything. My advice, don't talk at all until your probation is up, or you'll likely find yourself without a job. HR does not care about you either, as I learned quickly.

Also, if you don't like workplace gossip, this is not the place for you. Everything you do is reported to the manager by nosy co-workers.
Pros
Good Workout, Union
Cons
Management, Co-Worker Gossip, Job Culture

Environnement de travail
GESTIONNAIRE/CHEF DE TRI, Montréal (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC25 September 2018
J'ai beaucoup appris sur le management, sur différents logiciels.
Faire l'horaire de travail du personnel, améliorer le rendement en continu.
L'horaire de travail surchargé additionné aux déplacements/trafic très difficile.
Une journée de travail typique, départ du domicile à 13h15 pour arriver à la réunion de14h30 entre les gestionnaires, arrivée des employés à 16h, gestion des postes de travail et gestion du rendement pour le quart de travail se terminant à 00h30. Tout en conservant un atmosphère de travail agréable autant que possible.
Après le départ du personnel, faire les rapports du quart de travail et finaliser les fermetures, retour au domicile vers 2h du matin.
Pros
salaire et avantages sociaux
Cons
Quart de travail de soir et trafic

A good place to work
Courier Driver (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB20 September 2018
Purolator was a good company to work for. Salary was good and benefits were okay. As long as you did your job the management was good.You need good organizational skills. The hardest part of the job is to organize your day. As long as you did your job the management left you alone.

its a stable job if you can work nights
Frieght Preloader Agent (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB16 September 2018
purolator is overall a good company to work with if you have no issues working nights and you drive otherwise the transit will be a problem specially in winter you have to walk from the bus stop to the warehouse that will be a bit off a hassle because its up hill and a few blocks from the bus stop during winter time you will struggle with the walking although if you drive i guess the covinience is theres no traffic at night a bit of a rush in the morning but not that bad if you live around NE area
Pros
continues work
Cons
7hr ban/seniority may bump you anytime to accomodate seniority
