Materials and Logistics Manager in London, ON
Great place to work but poor top-down communication.
Fast paced company with reasonable salary and benefits. Communication and review process lacking almost entirely. Something of an “Ivory tower” setup that offers little guidance good or bad.

Best company I’ve worked for
Riverside has been a fantastic place to work over the ten plus years I have been with this organization. The company has provided me with a ton of professional growth. The owners of the company are there to lend a hand when things get tough, and they care tremendously about there employees, which show by the biweekly lunches to all staff and summer BBQs and beautiful Christmas parties. The manager and directors are some of the best leaders they are there to listen when you have something to say. I couldn’t imagine myself not working for This amazing company.

Best place I've worked! Amazing company
Riverside has been truly a great organization to call home since day one. Even beforehand, during the interview process I felt the level of professionalism and dedication that the management/ownership team exemplifies and it is incredible. There was so much that attracted me to joining this company. We are a fun group of individuals that can laugh, share, learn and grow together personally and professionally. It's all very open-door policy and managers are always very welcoming of feedback from their teams. We work hard but certainly know how to enjoy our time which is important.
Socially the company strives to foster teamwork through various organized social events/outings/functions throughout the year including summer family BBQs, fall Chili cook-offs, bowling night, candy-grams, Christmas luncheon etc. Collectively, the leadership team strives for excellence in all areas of operation and it really funnels down through the organization to all levels. We're not just family owned-operated - we feel like one big family!

Awfull place to work
Too much undo stress put on all workers. Work load per person too high. Sales staff have no clue what they're doing. Blatant favouritism is very prominent. Incompetence among management and middle management runs rampant. They love getting rid of good hard working reliable people with skills and replace them with ones who don't have any work skills or in general skills needed for the job. I would avoid this employer like the plague.
Do not apply
This company looks good on paper and in the interview, however they have zero loyalty to their employees and will find a way to fire you no matter how much you bend over backwards for them. They hire managers who cannot be trusted and only are there to appease the owners. All the owners care about is making more profit and opening new stores. Skilled people do work there but only advance when they suck up or know the owners personally.
