Fun temporary work

Hired in HR/L&D during busy period while company also managing response to COVID. Management will give you training and necessary coaching during your time there. The hardest part of the job is knowing what your functions when the company is currently adapting its processes and responsibilities. The most enjoyable part of the job are the coaches. My learning is this: Purolator does take good care of the training and development of its own permanent employees, but you are still essentially expendable if you are a temporary worker.

Pros

Good pay, Good Coaches, Collaborative and Independent work environment

Cons

Rare Temp to Permanent Hire

wonderful place to work

Purolator is a well established company that cares about its employees. From the benefits and salary to life work balance. They have a work hard but enjoy life approach that makes it a company you would want to work for.

Pros

benefits and salary are above basic

Cons

they are essential services so expect to work when other businesses are closed

Corporate company with a 'familiy run business' culture

Purolator is a great company that is market leader in Canada and as such has a strong focus on the Canadian market. Although the company employs over 13.000 people it still has a culture of being run like a 'family'. This has its charm but also has some challenges. All in all a great company to work for.

Great company but poor inside sales management

Great company but poor inside sales management. Things got worse and worse.We started as account managers, managing accounts and were pushed to call center drones.

Great job

While can be stressful at times at the end of the day it's worth it. Compensation and benefits are very good. Management is proactive and friendly, and the day goes by really fast as with any driving Jobs.

Open concept

Overall a really great company to work for, the pay isnt too bad and the benefits are pretty good. Great balance with working in the office and working from home. Management isn't always the best.

Stay Away from Procurement dept

The management at Purolators procurement department is some of the worst in the industry. The one procurement manager is arrogant, loathing and exhibits abhorrent behavior. It is no wonder people leave in droves and or exercise stress leave working under such conditions. Objectively there is a horrible workplace culture and management is only concerned with their perception with other departments over all other things.

Pros

None

Cons

Compensation, management, company

Great company, but long hours.

Purolator is a great place with great people, but my main issue is with work and life balance. I enjoy working with them, but there is a lot of overtime on an almost daily basis.

Pros

Great people

Cons

Long hours, no time to eat lunch

Productive and fun place

Still a great place to work. A lot of opportunities to learn new skills and move around the company internally. Definitely some teams are much more difficult to break into these days - but in general, the company is pretty flat and advancement is based on merit and measurable impact. I would also say I have been blessed with 7 great managers/directors that I have (and continue) to learn a lot from.

Pros

Very challenging problems

Cons

Long hours

Poor Management style

Lack of focus....Be emphathetic towards employees...they are the ones contributing to bottom line. Sr mgmt including CEO need to change. Politics and favoritism galore. Treat past employees with respect.

Pros

A few Good Men
