The hardest part about this job

The hardest part of this job is that they throw lots of work at you and expect you to do it all in 4 hours. I learned how to be detail oriented. I liked assisting customers

Pros

no manager in the retail section

Cons

paying 70 dollars for your union fee

poor management

I never got trained for the position tthat I was hired for. They don't follow what is in your contract agreement but instead they put you in to other department and do something different that has nothing to do with what you have hired and i your job description. it's frustrating

Work hard and get paid good

Purolator is one of the best companies to work for outside of the government. The customers act a little entitled. but if you can get past that that then its great .

Management lack basic skills

Management lack basic communication skills. Can never great straight answers. Managers often talk down to there employees and the ones that don’t have just been thrown into the position without training. Expectations for the drivers to retail are unrealistic. Union is a waste of money.

Pros

Easy work

Cons
