I worked for more than a year and the favouritism level was higher than anything I could imagine! I heard so many comments for my religious belief and the way I would drees up! They do not care how hard you work they will promote whoever they like! They also do not care about employees’s safety at all! My friend fell and had an injury at work place they told her quite the job! The management do not respect no one at all! They act like they are the zoo owner so they always yell scream and hire and easily fire people!
No pros at all!
Everything you will experience!
i loved working at SPUD, it was the best job i have worked at in my life. If you enjoy driving and working alone this is the job for you, you will see some customers so if you enjoy that then this job is for you, oh and the fact that the drives are beautiful and you can listen to music and podcasts all day:)
Long hours sometimes, long drives
Easiest job I've ever had, but the pay is so low you can make a living. Vehicles are a little janky, but it's nice. to. spend. a whole shift alone. Work phones are supplied with a dispatch app which literally holds your hand, tells you all the information you need and gps from one delivery location to the next.
Worked there for years as a delivery driver. Bo raises. After many years was still making under industry standard. Witnessed verbal abuse from managment... funding was so bad they apparently couldn't even buy toilet paper... let alone fix the badly aging damaged delivery vehicles. No breaks... if your good at the job expect to do the work of others who cannot do theirs
The faster you work the less money you made - but the more time you took the more you were scolded for taking too much time. not worth driving for the little money y0u made and for my transportation system did let us take vans home if we worked the next day
Spud has been the worst employer in my personal experience. You will be hard pressed to get a wage over 15$/ hr, management does not respect time off and won't hesitate to contact you on your days off. Management are not properly trained in OHS safety and ignore bullying in the work place and have no follow through on workers concerns. They refuse to update proper equipment and have little respect for warehouse workers. The entire warehouse is in constant tension and has been the most negative environment I have worked in. The benefits however are quite good,
Some cool warehouse staff
Negative work environment, little wage for hard work
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at SPUD.ca?
Do you like being yelled at? Do you enjoy being belittled? Does getting injured on a weekly basis thrill you? Do you love working beneath utterly incompetent people? Does being threatened to be sent home or fired constantly just get you going? Then SPUD Vancouver is perfect for you! This dangerous and idiotic warehouse welcomes you with open arms and angry hearts. Enjoy working at SPUD for as long as you can tolerate. I know I did!
Benefits, ok hours
Incompetent management, dangerous work environment, Constant threats, overworked, smelly
This company has a lot of promotional material that makes it seem like an awesome company to work for, but they don't follow through on most of what they say. They don't seem to value my safety or my health, and most of the other people that I speak with feel the same way. They moved everybody to their new warehouse location (where safety equipment is required) and expect people to work without safety equipment. When I brought up my concerns to leadership, they argued but changed nothing. In debates they're willing to say pretty much anything to get their way.
Benefits for employees over 24 hours a week
Long hours, stressful environment, irresponsible leadership, unsafe working conditions, dishonest communication
I get to work by myself when driving but still get to be social when delivering customers bins. Everyone is nice to work with. Packs are not always ready on time which can cause delays and be frustrating.
Great people, B Corp
Warehouse can be behind
They knew I was a student and I was able to get a flexible work week. I started at the bottom, gave some effort and was given opportunities to go further. There are some cool people who work there and I respect those cool people. Sometimes it gets stressful, but what job doesn't?
questionable delivery vans, wear good shoes
I was an employee for nearly 2 years. I was let go for reasons related to personal growth. The management in the warehouse was not particularly motivational, and seemed more focused on what was done wrong than what was done right. Front office staff were wonderful people, and provided a very positive environment. I never had any evidence in front of me that I might be let go, and the opportunities for advancement or change in position over the course of two years were at best few and far between. Those who have not been here for an extended period of time are, as in many places, the most likely to be let go. Job security and advancement, on top of management that seemed to lack the understanding of how employees viewed the workplace were the largest challenges.
Free food when items are written off, Wonderful front office staff.
Lack of advancement opportunities, inexperienced management.
I've tried the position of driver for a short period of time and it was really disappointing. At every shift I had a different problem (no vehicle assigned, problem with the vehicle, etc ) that need to be solved by a manager or a supervisor. I had absolutely no clue who was on service neither the staff in the warehouse and I had to find out on my own where he was on a two story building with no key card to access any section of it. No phone number on the work cell phone to contact any of them. I was waisting so much time at the start of my shift to answer those questions that I could haven invested it in the main purpose of my job. Almost every employees was seems annoy that I asked them to help me. I never received a hello or a smile coming to work. Neither any feedbacks from the management. It have no atmosphere in the company. Also the vehicle could be better maintain. Overall a disappointing experience and I hope they will change how they run their delivery department because it's a chaos. Good luck!
not the best job to work at. they withheld my benefits card because of oneidentification that was too unreadable for them that I couldn't even get replaced because I was working nights. isn't worth the stuff they put you through and they now have implemented a new system that has current employees overworking themselves and they're just losing money left and right. they call in temporary workers and are so desperate to keep people that most are not learning from their mistakes and not up to the standard they say they want for speed of packing and they still keep them on. most of the day time staff is older employees that have been working there for years and get upset at the smallest changes including if they are put in the fridge instead of the station they want to be at. there's been issues with one of the older employees who is literally just ignored whenever he does something that makes a newer employee uncomfortable and most of the management just avoids talking to him. they don't take care of their employees and if you want any decent discounts it's for their already expired be fresh salads and meals. 13$ an hour is not enough for this job and the only people being paid a decent wage are management and the people who have been there for 10+ years. everyone is unhappy and overworked.
long hours, bad pay, poor management
