Parcel Courier (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 12 January 2019
Although many workers are well trained and push themselves to fill quota, they still at times get mistreated. and some people that are hired should not have been hired, counterproductive is hiring a 90 lbs woman to lift more than 100 lbs
Graphic Designer (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 14 June 2018
I worked their as a last minute co-op position and occasionally was hired to work weekends, by occasionally i mean like twice.
It was very very slow there, I hardly got trained to do anything. I just stayed in the back and printed photos on cups .. so when I did work on the weekends without the management team I had no Idea what I was doing and all the work had to be done by the other girl working there.
Manager, Customer Service (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 12 June 2018
The job I found interesting, especially the shipping. My employer was quite reasonable with me but the pay was not great. It can be a stressful, fast paced job that can be quite demanding, you have to be able to multi-task and manage your time well in order to serve clients appropriately and quickly. I did stay for 5+ years until family needed me more.
Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 June 2018
I was promised salary when taking this position. I worked Monday to Saturday from 9-6. I work roughly 52 hours a week and was only paid less then $450 a week. I enjoyed working with customers. But my heart is in graphic design, not managing a failing business by myself.
Organizer (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 4 June 2018

Package Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Concord, ON – 29 May 2018
Typical day started with me heading to my truck and doing a circle check around the truck. Ensuring that all turn signals and break lights are in good working order. The oil and all fluids, windshields are topped up as well as the tire pressure. Once complete the I would have to scan the packages in the truck are all on board by doing a physical count making sure that 8 of 8 pieces art there. Any express packages on board would need to be delivered first due to time sensitivity. by about 3:00pm the package picks would start.
Given the opportunity to work in different departments within the company ( allowed me to learn great deal regarding operations, management, and most currently planning and optimization -industrial engineering
Clerical Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 May 2018
Most people are nice, you're expected to get in and get out and that's pretty much it. No real culture or uplifting environment... obviously, it's a warehouse. Will also add, the place is HIGHLY ignorant, I mean I guess it makes sense since majority of the workers are from third world countries. Lots of harassment, homophobia and overall lack of respect for other human beings.
Free education and growth if you play your cards right
Walker (Former Employee) – Belleville, ON – 16 May 2018
When i worked here i was treated unfairly and was forced to risk my own safety multiple times. I was made to walk through the bay doors, and i was also made to jump out of a moving vehicle by one of the drivers. when I brought it up no one did a thing. just say that because i lived a fair amount away they wouldn't have hired me in the first place.
Sorter (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 16 May 2018
A good place to work temporarily only. Only thing good about this company is that its a union job with extremely very good benefits. Its a good place for someone who wants to work part time or anyone close to retirement age. Starting pay is minimum until 2 years and isn't worth working for that much for the amount of work that is given.
free dinner occasionaly
5 hour shiifts sometimes less with the pay rate of $11/h
former employee (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 May 2018
Training sucks, supervisor is worry more for going home early rather than training you properly. Got let go the second week because I did 100 stops in 12 hours, what do they expect from me in such a short time and horrible training and extreme pressure????
