Good company that tries to do the right things for staff and customers.

Overall, a good place to work. Salaries and benefits are competitive. Job security is very high, but there is very low attrition so it's hard to advance. It's the perfect place if you want stability.

Pretty good company

Working at Purolator has been a pretty good experience so far. The work is not too hard. The only thing you have to worry about is shipping large items and dealing with irate customers. The pay is pretty good too but the only thing is that you don’t get much opportunity to make more hours outside of peak season. So, good pay rate + poor hours = okay pay cheque. You also only get benefits if you’re a full time employee which is unfortunate. The management is pretty decent and fellow employees aren’t too shabby either. It’s a good place to work if you’re a student because hours can be altered if needed. Definitely recommended to those who enjoy customer service and interaction.

It's very fast paced with production daily

My experience with the company was very good very at least 9 years. Was able to learn a lot and was challenge to try different departments worked my way up to senior clerk looking after the afternoon billing department.The wages could have been better but we're at par according to other courier companies.Was dedicated as an employee but when they started too downsize was let go on my 10th year.The payout wasnt the greatest either.

Pros

Opportunities too learn and move up were great.

Cons

Money could have been better

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

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.
