Rough edges, but mostly VERY good workplace & staff
I did forklift order picking and staging work mostly. Increased the # of counterbalance forklifts EVENTUALLY, but some had fast draining batteries, or still not enough for all the workers, but u could switch to manual order-picking to help. Almost always work to do, so no FAKE sweeping to look productive. Training was a lil weak, but almost no one got mad, and instead informed me of mistakes. It was a relaxing place with no helicopter supervision, nor termination without supervisors correcting you first (as long as you were competent). Huge inventory is in the outdoor yard, so dress correctly for being out there 11+ minutes if your order wave includes big stuff. Occasional OT available, but not forced. I recommend here to anyone competent and responsible; they want permanent staff usually. It's a tiny bit social at most.
There'd be a few coworkers who'd be condescending, short tempered, yet avoidable. Follow all forklift regulations, realize you're lifting oddly shaped skids w/expensive products, read the long product numbers correctly, and you're fine.

The warehouse was FILTHY, down to the trucker bathroom. Cobwebs at every level on walls and some shelving spaces and black dust almost everywhere, from IDK what source since there wasn't any industrial pollution or anything. No cleaner or staff would take a broom to that, so lots of crawlies emerge from stuff you lift by MHE. They moved to a brand new clean place in Vaughan, but I doubt they'll do upkeep.

Atmosphere
This is a very toxic place to work. It will suck the life right out of you. Management is poorly run. HR is totally messed up. You bring up a harrassment issue, your gone. No protection in the workplace.

Management is out of touch with the market in the West and has lost loads of market share because of it
Management team is over 90% based in Eastern Canada and don't understand the market in Western Canada. They do not honor their word to employees and would sooner have inexperienced staff that they don't have to pay much for than experienced staff who could actually help them. They are really out of touch with the market in Western Canada and do not value what the customers needs are and what employees recommend. They have also demonstrated massive confusion in their procedures when rolling out new branches in the West and have alienated and lost a lot of existing cutomers. Master Group is an extremely frustrating place to do business for employees and customers alike.

Difficulté à régler les problème de rémunération
Les erreurs de rémunération sont extrêmement difficile à solutionner. Des sommes dues ne sont toujours pas payés après onze mois. La direction et le service des ressources humaines ne retournent plus mes communications à ce sujet depuis plusieurs mois. Je vais être obliger de prendre des actions juridiques pour être payé.
Pros
ambiance de travail
Cons
rémunération

Zero job security
Once this company is running in your area. They fire all the staff with larger wages and run the company on people who know nothing. There is zero job security and the Managers they have in place in BC have no experience. Apply elsewhere.

Looking for job security? GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!
This company is managed by arrogant jerks from Quebec who have no regard for their employees. They fire people on a whim because they dont like something you said. No training whatsoever, they hand you a binder and say go to, then challenge you on why everyone does things differently. No consistency in the corporate culture, they say a bunch of stuff that sounds good but when it comes down to it they are all a bunch of heartless robots that only care about their own egos.

Great Culture and opportunity for growth
The Master Group is a fast growing company that invests heavily in the tools for employees to do the best at their job. With the growth the company is showing, there is plenty of opportunity to advance within the company in any region in Canada.
The pace is fast in all branches as Master is a key player in all markets. If you work hard, and aren't afraid to do so, you can advance your career to any level. There is a large number of long term employees which tells you that it is a great company.
Pros
opportunity for advancement, work for an industry leader

J’aurais mis zéro étoiles
Mauvaise gestion dans cette compagnie ça donne des titre de superviseur a des mauvaises personne qui n’ont pas d’expérience. Des erreurs de parcours elle en a fait et sa lui a enflé la tête. Aucun respect pour son département Cette personne a parlé dans le dos de tout son département et ensuite demande le respect

Ça donne que les bonnes démission après 8ans de service.

Bonne esprit d'équipe
Une journée typique pour le poste que j'occupe est d'analyser et faire approuver les factures de dépenses pour ensuite les comptabilisés au système.
L'ambiance de travail est très agréable entre collègue .

Le plus difficiles est de recevoir les approbations de facture pour certain département.
Pros
possibilité de changer l'horaire dans la mesure du raisonnable
Cons
Pas de pause

Productive and busy.
It was great to experience this type of atmosphere in the HVAC industry.

Every day was busy with orders going out and coming in for the Atlantic provinces. There was a wide range of companies coming in for parts and orders and there was always talk about what was going on in the industry, this made it a great learning environment.

Fun and energetic work environment.
The day to day duties at Master Group involved a good amount of customer interaction within a very casual work setting. Management within the company was very fair and involved in special events and inventory for each individual branch. As previously mentioned it was a very casual environment so the people you work with become more like a small family. The most difficult thing was trying to manage the busy season in the summer. There is a huge demand by customers from April to September and sometimes trying to keep up with the demand was challenging. Overall a great experience and a great company to work for.

Should be rated at less than one star. Terrible company to work at
If you want to be treated like garbage and be lied to all the time this is the place. Treat employees like third class citizens. Get a job at another company. This place is a joke to work for. No safety and all lies. Management should all be fired
Pros
None!!!!
Cons
Treat you like garbage

Could be better
I got laid off for financial reason even though there were many people hired after me in my 5+ years there. It is fast paced and always something to do but management is very poor!

Organisation d'événement
Il ne s'agit pas réellement d'organisation d'événements car ils ont déjà une équipe du marketing qui s'en occupe.

C'est principalement des tâches administratives du genre remplacer la réceptionniste souvent absente et apporter un soutien aux directeurs.


Mis à part prendre des presences et commander les repas et placer les salles en consequences (ce qui représente 30% du travail), une personne désirant organiser des événements ne comblerait pas ses besoins.
