Terrible management, HR and Company as a whole.
Very irresponsible and cold hearted management
Old man in HR is senseless. He is doing no good as a human being. I don't understand how do these people see themselves in mirror and what values will they teach their children. Total waste on this planet and ruining people's life.

People are so so fake especially the director. What a fake person man !

They give false promises and stab a knife in your back with a smile of their ugly face.

Immature management who does not have the balls to say it on the face.

Very very bad human beings per se. Should have rather been born as dogs as they don't understand it is not a joke to hurt an employee. He also has a family to feed and take care of.

No one cares about the other person and there will be no understanding in times of need.

Very bad political corporate culture

Please don't even think of joining this company, if you wish good for yourself !

I had a great manager and mentor. She showed me great work ethic and humanity
If you had a great manager, it really contribute greatly to your career growth, no matter what job you had, or wherever you worked. I had two amazing female bosses. I'm grateful for the experience working with them.

Informational
Ok place to work, start early, finish late. Training is really good. Management cares but strict. Hardest part is constant change and unsatisfied customers with government policy.

Poor culture; only sales matter
If you are in sales, there are opportunities and rewards; the rest of the company is unappreciated and overlooked.

Workplace is split into silos and the culture is poor in some departments.
Pros

Cons
Low morale; poor culture; long hours; weak leadership.

Overall,Sonepar Ontario Headoffice is OK.
The headoffice of Sonepar Ontario is small. Finance just has 3 employees. There is not a lot of opportunities for the employee to progress well.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Seems like nobody care about other ones except finishing their work and go home. No good culture.
