No communication anywhere
Accounts Payable Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC18 February 2019
Information is not shared with anyone. Nobody knows what is coming. There are surprises everyday. Staffs work at different departments have to communicate themselves to get what they need to know. Management does only care about that is important to themselves.

Slowly boiled alive
Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC5 November 2018
Taiga has a highly political environment. It is difficult to get operational changes processed. They have very high turn-over due to stress of the positions.

If you work hard you are rewarded

No pay raises in years, no incentive to work.
Yard Worker (Current Employee) –  Milton, ON14 June 2017
Busy work day, fun at times but employees are treated differently. More is expected by some while paid less than others who are totally incompetent and unable to accomplish simple things like find the materials to load their trucks, Sometime requires 3 different people to locate the items to do their loads while newer workers are twice as competent get paid a fraction of this individual earns. Numerous complaints have been made against him but management has decided to ignore them? Morale has gone down the tubes here at this branch.
Pros
Company events, benefits
Cons
expected long hours, no raises
