Best to avoid working here

If you work in the back it's dirty, back breaking work. It will do a number on your body. You are always sick due to tge disgusting things that come in donation bags. Management is terrible and has little to no control over the staff. I was injured on the job due to management cutting saftey corners and the company treated me terribly while I tried to heal from the injury they caused.

Cons

Dirty, poor management, bad environment

Very fast paced and productive

I liked working there but I definitely don’t think workers are getting paid nearly enough for the amount of time and energy we put into work. Hard job

Pros

Schedule flexibility

Cons

Long hours

Bad vibes!

Upper management is the reason all the negative ratings are the same. Even though their from people all over Canada. If they cared about the general staff, so would the lower management. It all trickles down. You eventually will feel what it means to be exploited. You forget you are doing a job and expect payment in return. They will soon make you feel you owe them.

Pros

You will learn to know how you don't want to be treated.

Cons

Supervisors are encouraged to stand behind you, while working to intimidate employees to work faster.

No work/life balance for Supervisors

Supervisors are not treated as part of management, mostly night and weekends offering no balance for those with families. Good training program but very little room for advancement

Pros

Great Team Members

Cons

Low Pay with minimal increases that do not keep up with cost of living
