Corporate Accounts, Inside Sales & Pricing (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 September 2018
Overall good experienced gained at this organization. Employees were great to work with and over the years a good dynamic was created in the office. Good place to start your career to learn the basics of any business.
Supply Planner (Current Employee) – Alberta – 8 November 2018
Univar used to be a good place to work for. It is now, perhaps, somewhere that can give you some experience so you can leave to go to a real company. Everyone says great things about you on your face and then trash you behind your back.
Working there is becoming each day more and more stressful. Management in Alberta is a boys club. They only care about themselves and their big bonuses.
Sales team complains, but they are really well taken care of.
All the other departments that support sales are treated like we are doing them a favour. Yes, we do get a yearly bonus! Yay! But that's not enough for 2 weeks' grocery; people in sales can make at least half of your yearly salary just in bonus - not to mention that their fixed salary is above most everyone else's.
Good place too work with friendly management and decent wage. I was looking forward to advancing within the company but did not get the chance to stay with the company long enough because of an incident that happened with my wife sick and missed 2 days in a row..
Temporary Warehouse Clerk (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 September 2017
A typical day for me at Univar included data entry, emailing and conversing over the phone with customers and other departments, and dealing with truck drivers at reception. I learned a lot about office administration (i.e. filing, faxing). I was always treated with respect by my supervisors and coworkers. Univar has a very positive workplace culture.

good place to work. decent wage , Good management , good co-workers, decent benefits , I enjoy my job there. But I find there is favoritism and the wage increases are very small. Good bonus program. all and all a pretty good company but would like to relocate to slave lake. ab or Edmonton. ab, to be closer to family and friends.
Fast paced, sales oriented with opportunities for advancement
Customer Service Manager (Current Employee) – Dorval, QC – 4 January 2017
Univar Canada is a fantastic school. If a person is willing to learn and eager to participate there will be plenty of opportunities to shine. Customer Service is considered the heart of the organization. The hardest part of the job would have to be relying on other departments to do their parts with as much enthusiasm as you do. The most enjoyable part is definitely the people. The friends you make are friends you will keep for life.

Operations Manager, Southern Alberta (Former Employee) – Edmonton Alberta – 12 October 2015
Univar Canada was a great company to work for, 28 out of the 31 years of service. The last 3 years were challenging as new management was introduced bringing along new work ethics. Univar was a fun place to work and my colleagues worked very hard. A Typical day of work started of with a walk through the facility ensuring safety protocols were being followed and any issues employees had. from that I was involved in many meetings with managers,contractors and suppliers.
Just all in all a very good company to be associated with
