Positive and Productive workplace environment
Mac Tools Returns Processor (Team Lead) (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON25 June 2018
Stanley Black & Decker had a positive workplace environment. My typical work day revolved around receiving and inspecting/ logging customer returns. Also, speaking with customers over the phone and in person to ensure they've received their early credit for their returns.

they demand loyalty from their employees but when it comes to loyalty from the company to their employees they do not know how to correspond in kind,
Draftsman / Document Control Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lake Forest, CA27 April 2017
a typical day at work was continuing with anything that was not completed the day before, or checking with the supervisor for the next project, at black & Decker the drafter were confined to doing drafting, so did not learn anything (I already knew Mechanical Drafting) aside from my supervisor I had no contact with management, the work culture is great because they give the support needed
Pros
yearly picnic, Team Building activities
Cons
long hours when a project had to be done by a certain date

Overall Good Work Experience
Multiple positions (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON9 September 2016
I learned a lot of transferable skills such as communication, time management, mentoring and leadership as well as hard skills like Warehouse management system, RF scanning technology. Co-workers are fun and friendly. Very Multi-cultural environment! Hardest part is commute. Most enjoyable part: being able to work in a positive environment (most of the time) music is often allowed. Management is wishy washy, too many people trying to be or act like management as well mixed messages get sent. Communication on that level is not that great.
Pros
Provided free lunches, and incentives for doing OT (even above the pay)
Cons
day shift is very early for a commuter, punch clock system.

Satisfactory at best
Canadian Finance (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON7 August 2016
The Mississauga head office is generally a so-so place to work at.

Pros include decent co-workers, compensation generally in-line with the market and a brand name that external companies recognize

Cons are a bit longer....
-Incredibly incompetent senior management team, specifically in the Canadian finance department with top management generally clueless about even the simplest of finance concepts, along with top management clearly playing favourites (ignoring everyone else)
-US counterparts can be a handful to deal with
-General lack of direction/motivation/long-term vision within the organization...seems to be a month by month operation (strat plan is a joke)
-Forget about career progression here; company is pretty lean and has not been growing notably for a number of years (layoffs, on the other hand, happen on a fairly regular basis)

Long story short, I don't regret my time here but I would definitely not recommend this place to anyone who is competent and has the ability to look for something better at a more dynamic organization.

Distribution Associate (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON17 May 2016
The work pace can be very face paced but the ability to balance the job so easily with my personal life made it a very easy environment to adapt to.
Although much of the work can have very little interaction with other employees there is a profound sense that everyone is working together.
Pros
Great atmosphere and great flexability
Cons
Heavy lifting
