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

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

Favorite job by far
Shipper/Handler Retail Float (Former Employee) –  Float4 September 2018
I was super sad that I only had a temporary position with this company. This was by far the best job i ever had and always hoped there would be an open position for me again.
The experience was great. The leadership and room for growth was amazing. Training was always spot on.

The Best
Courier (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB31 July 2018
You are lucky if you are hired here since it’s a heavily Unionized government owned environment.
As a driver you have a great opportunity to grow and enjoy an excellent work/life balance and beyond competitive wages.

The only difficulties to consider are the very strict policies as well as the gossip, drama and lack of trust amongst other personnel.
Pros
Wages, Union, Benefits, Job Security
Cons
High Stress, Violence/Harrassment

A steady job with opportunities for advancement if you want.
Courier Delivery Driver/Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB25 June 2018
A steady decent paying position, that once you have it, is maintainable without too much stress. A union job with great benefits and opportunity for advancement if that is your choice.
Physically demanding and can be stressful due to the constant time limitations, unforeseen setbacks (weather, traffic, etc)

A good starting position
Sorter (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB4 June 2018
I was a Sorting for the P.M. shift.

The hours are decent, though because it was all the way out by the airport I had to pay a bit for travel.

The salary is actually really good for a starting position. I wouldn't recommend it for once you've gotten a few years experience at other places under your belt, but if you're just out of school and looking for something, or even just want a summer job, it pays well.

Management is all right. They'll help you out on your first day, and then slowly back off to let you do your own thing. For a job like this I'd say it's a good way of going about things.

Maybe it was because I was on the P.M. shift, but as far as my co-workers went many of them seemed somewhat drained. They didn't seem to have a lot of energy, and with a few exceptions, didn't really seem like they were happy there. Not sure if this is different for the A.M. shift but something to be aware of.

Overall, I'd say it's a nice place to start out.
Pros
A good starting position
Cons
Co-workers were a little lifeless
