Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
If you work in the warehouse you have to be active and healthy. Some departments are easy to work but some require some lifting. Overall it’s okay to work

zero employee appreciation, I had the district manager tell me if you don't like it quit, there is some one else who wants your job

I enjoyed my customers and most of my job duties, it was only the lack of employee support that was awful.the equipment was maintained and they have on site mechanics,the benefits once you have been there long enough are decent.

Pros

good wage and union protection

Cons

you are treated as a number not a person

Productive and fast paced

Overall good company with good opportunities. I believe they strive for a good culture nationally however locally the terminal was toxic. Management was afraid to manage due to union.

Ok

Job overall was okay. Management was pretty abrasive and hard to communicate with at times. Pay and benefits were solid. Being unionized was awesome, very hard to be terminated and pay was solid as a result. Hours were weird if you were working in the afternoon like me, but if you can bare it it's good work on top of another part time job. All in all, good company to work for.

Pros

Good pay, Good benefits

Cons

Abrasive management

Very stressful, no job security, management is malfunction.

No job security, malfunction management, stressful environment, worthless union. Managers alway blame every to you. Managers use foul language and abusive language front of other workers.

Cons

Management and union

Terrible place for employment

Management is filled with a bunch of grown people acting like they are still in high school. Coworkers are rats that think by snitching they will get a raise or promotion.

Too much pressure

I do not recommend this at all. Too much pressure... long hours...they will hire you for busy season after that they will lay you off or say you didn't pass probation....

Pros

OK pay but wait 4 years to actually get decent pay.

Cons

Looooonnng hours.... pressure.....will hire for busy seasons only

Diviser pour mieux régner, il ne faut pas aider c’est collègue c’est mal et tu n’as pas le droit d’avoir une vie privée

Même façon de gérer que dans les années 50, on fouet les employés, toujours en faire plus , aucune reconnaissance

Quick cash if you need a part time job

Travail routinier et physique

Travail routinier. Manque d'employés. Les nouveaux passent des semaines à décharger les remorques, sans pouvoir faire d'autres tâches. Lors d'accident, reffuse qu'on remplisse un rapport. Physiquement demandant. Les plus anciens se croient votre boss et vous cris sans cesse dessus

Pros

Paye

Cons

Peu de pause. Pas beaucoup d'heures. Manque d'employé
