Good starter job
I worked for Marco for 4 years. I went in as a temp and worked hard to get into a permanent position at the Hardy road location. It is not the greatest place to work however it served it purpose as a job to get me experience. I worked my way up from packaging on Henry street to eventually learning how to do customs paperwork. If you can handle the typical drama of warehouse work and sub par management its a great place to start out and move forward if you put the work in and let it be known you want to keep moving up. Opportunity to learn various jobs if you ask. Offered a lot of overtime. Marco is a stepping stone, and must be viewed as such. Hard work, underpaid but worth it in the end.

Worst place i have ever worked for
Marco on henry street is the worst company I've ever worked for.
Bullied by co workers for weeks non stop everyday.

Reported the problem and things just got worse.

I was threatened by 2 employees who said I was going to get my face kicked in the tow mower driver has a girlfriend who also works there and they act like they owned the company. With zero conciquinses for there behavior with bullying and threatening my life. Management could care less about their employees... you are only a number to them

Tight deadlines
The work environment has massive tight deadlines. Benefits and pay are very poor compared to other like work facilities. Little value to long term employees. Better overall in regards to personal safety compared to most places. Very clean warehouse

Loved the challenges and work experience
Having to leave for personal reasons, I totally miss my position at Marco. Management always encourages staff to solve issues with them if they arise. I personally was treated like gold, and the other team leads were excellent for helping me with any questions I had. If you can understand that there are different personalities no matter where you work and walk in with a positive attitude and a willingness to work hard and do your job, most staff, co-workers become like family and I am still connected with many of them. I would go back in a heartbeat as I miss the work that kept me busy and totally miss my team members. I was up beat and positive and jumped in to help my team with the tasks, people shouldn't slander the team leads and management for doing their job and doing it efficiently. If you are lazy and don't want to actually work, I would suggest you look for a more laid back position rather than bash a company who does a lot for it's employees. To Marco: Love you, miss you!

lots of work available
The company has lots of work and some is seasonal. But I don't mind having some breaks to stay with the kids. Everyone is nice. I have always been treated well. The company gives away lots of client items, which is a nice surprise.
Pros
steady employment; nice people; good feedback from supervision
Cons
the pay could be better, but it's not horrible

packing products
I see that Marcos has a 2.5 star rating... even that is way to much for this place... it's dirty, they bully and name calling, forced overtime (they tell only after they hire you), washrooms are a joke, dirty and moldy... and the management and most team leads treat you badly, they do not care about the people that work there or the place they work in... if I could give it a -5 star I would...
terrible place

-5 out of 10

Worst company i ever worked for
This company is one of the worst in brantford I worked there for 2 weeks and while I was there was told they do not know when they need me but now they need a forklift operator? This management is very lousy. They talk to you like you have intelligence of a 12 yearold. Doesnt like black men. My advice stay away from is loosey warehouse.

Don't recommed working at this place.
You might find a few nice people here but most will stab you in the back. HR works for the company only and will talk about you behind your back. Wages are a laugh doesn't matter how long you've been there all you get in min wage.

This is a horrible place to work... ladies washroom is two portable type buildings that are mold infested and dirty... Intimidation, bullying, name calling... hate spreading, gossip and drama from the management and team leads and even some of the workers... threats of being fired if you don't work overtime...
I wouldn't recommend anyone to work here...

Great people to work with
People although mostly temporary positions, were always upbeat and happy and were all willing to work as a team to reach company goals. Sometimes company quotas were unreasonable at best.
Pros
Cafeteria with affordable delicious meals
Cons
Temporary with no room to become permanent

not a great environment
The employers do not really care about their employees. It was a very negative environment. Minimum wage and not any real incentives to stay longer. Also there are no health benefits

Customer service representative
I worked at The Marco Corporation for years and it was the best job I've had yet. The people that work there are kind.. It's a great company! We had Christmas dinners every year and freebies all the time! If you ever have the chance to work there, do not hesitate!
Pros
Good pay! Good people
Cons
None

Not a positive environment
Very unstable environment. They continuously renew your temp contract. Management yells on a daily basis if quotas aren’t met the day before and I mean yells at staff in morning meetings. The full time staff can be rude and dismissive to the “temp” staff. Management promises one thing and senior management does something else. Very few members of staff are happy or enjoy their job which is evident on a daily basis. Don’t waste your time. Mandatory overtime including 7 days with threat of being fired if you don’t show up for both days. Very disorganized with poor planning. Subjected to long lines, sometimes up to 20-30 minutes to be searched by security at end of day, which is unpaid time.
Pros
Donuts beginning of lunch. Cafeteria for lunch
Cons
Mandatory overtime, hostile environment, disorganized

A Dump!
The place is a dump! You are told the very first hour if you can't keep up, you can just leave. They need to get better, more trained supervisors. I would never recommend this place to anyone!!!!

Ignorant supervisors.

Fast paced
The Marco Corporation is a company that builds, fills, and ships displays of SC Johnson products. Here there is also product which gets shrink wrapped, inspected for imperfections, and palletized on skids.
