Awesome company, 50 best managed companies in Canada.
Awesome company to work for. They have a social committee, profit sharing. I would recommend the company for people coming out of school for a little of experience. The pay isn't that good.

Easy-Going Workplace
If you're looking for a job that encourages autonomous work, freedom to set your schedule (as long as your minimum hours are covered) and the ability to work away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, this could be the place for you. If you are easily discouraged by disorganization, laughable pay increases and questionable mid-level management decisions, you may want to stay away. The choice is yours...

Great people
Great people and great work environment, however most people aren’t that great when it comes to treating others fairly (bosses, managers) and there’s a lot of questionable reasons as to why they let people go.
Pros
Great pay, great benefits, easy to learn.
Cons
Hours are long, hard to balance work and life

Fun place to work
A typical day at work involved getting your job done and socializing with coworkers. Additional projects bring fun challenges at times.
Advancement is difficult as it is a small company. If you do advance you will probably not get the resources necessary to help you succeed.
Pros
Amicable people
Cons
Management issues

Decent benefits with a below average salary and a predominantly positive atmosphere

Below average salary, Lots of work

Great learning ground.
In my many years working for tenaquip. I’d have to say they are very well organized with their business. Their systems and trainings are easy and great to work with.
You will learn a lot from this company especially if it’s your first career opportunity. Don’t expect much advancement in position, career development or even salary. But you will learn a lot from the management and staff. I left simply because I couldn’t see myself working in the same lateral position for the next 3-5 years and let’s not even mention the lack of pay. They can keep their profit sharing and they should bonus their employees as promised and not make excuses especially since this company is growing in double digits annually.


All in all great work environment, great starting ground. Minor things but important things that they should develop or they will keep loosing bright employees
Pros
Location, Gym, Experience, staff
Cons
Salary, management, advancement, recognition

Solid company, great place to work
This is a family run business that cares about their employees and the community. You are expected to work hard but if you do, you will be rewarded well, and given opportunities to grow - I speak from experience! They offer quarterly profit sharing so I feel like I am benefiting from the company's success. Great heath care benefits and lots of perks. I really enjoy the lunchtime exercise classes, they are very convenient. Always new things to learn and new challenges to keep me motivated.
Pros
Gym on site, subsidised cafeteria, profit sharing, good healthcare plan, great co-workers.

Ok place to work for
Long hours compared to the industry. Work/family balance was not easy especially when the schedule is not flexible.
Salary was ok if you include profit sharing.

No possibility of advancement.

Maximum of 3 weeks vacation no matter how many years you work there.

Management should not only aim to be in Canada’s 50 best managed companies. They should work towards making the top 100 employers to work for...
Pros
Profit sharing, nice work environment, relaxed dress code
Cons
Long hours, lack of vacation

Great company mis-managed
Great business model, warehouse and products but management is authoritarian. Upper management is all different families that had their businesses bought out and stayed under contract. So lots of conflicts and very narrow thinking. They need new innovative faces in upper management.
Pros
good philosphy
Cons
management will not allow you to execute, hard to bring on new customers, hard to do business with due to paperwork and massively high turn around

Good Work environment, Weak Pay
If your looking for job security and a very enjoyable work environment, this could be the place for you. They have all the social benefits you would come to expect and a nice on site gym. But this comes at the expense of a competitive salary. My advice would be to negotiate hard for higher pay at your job interview since from then on what they give you is what you get. They are pretty firm on their given salaries and don't like to adjust or negotiate.
Pros
Relaxed work environment, on site gym/squash court, casual dress
Cons
Low Pay

Disappointed in Management structure
Customers have always been my focus, with that being said, it was a difficult position to be in, when logistics and management structure were absent on many occasions.
It was unfortunate that all 4 sales staff members left within weeks of my leaving the company.

Very enjoyable
Everything is not perfect, but TENAQUIP is the best employer I've ever worked with.

One of the best things about working here is that they are very flexible with employees that have families/children and understand the quirks that inevitably come along.


I've never had a problem with having to leave in the middle of an afternoon because my child was sick at school. This is a major benefit as far as I'm concerned!
Pros
Location, understanding of people, balance of strictness and laid back attitude
Cons
Low salary, advancement opportunities almost non-existant

Great atmosphere
Even though I have not worked in a lot of warehouses, Tenaquip Limited was a great place to work at. The Ceo,s really take their time to get to know their employees.
Pros
drinks available for free in the warehouse
Cons
You need a car to get home.

A decent place to work
Tenaquip is a decent place to work. In my position as a desktop publisher, I find that I am given the space to do my work in a fairly autonomous way. I confer with my manager when necessary, but only when there is a rush job do things get hectic. I mean, I'm allowed to listen to music as I work, and that's great.
The benefits are top-notch. An excellent health and drug plan that includes dental. The company has invested a lot in work/life balance programs that are at the disposal of the employees. The company also runs a profit sharing plan, which is great.

There are only a few glaring downsides to the company. One, it doesn't pay much. It's a common complaint from employees. Also, vacation time maxes out at three weeks after five years. Perhaps the biggest drawback though is the fact that the office is incredibly inconvenient to get to if you don't have a car. It's on the western tip of the island of Montreal and public transit does not serve the area very often. There are rush hour buses during the week and a commuter train stop about a 15 minute walk away, but you better have a car.
Pros
Good benefits, profit sharing
Cons
Inconvenient location, low pay
