Chauffeur classe 1 (Former Employee) –  Boucherville, QC22 February 2019
Encores une entreprise qui crois pouvoir changer et améliorer en imposant plus de loi et de disciplines...

Commencé par aidé les autres si vous voulez de l'aide...

Et débarrassé vous des grands parleurs qui étire leurs journée à 25$ de l'heure et des alcooliques aux dispatche...

Etc....

Owner Operators / Drivers Beware
Driver (Former Employee) –  Bolton, ON24 November 2018
Owner Operators and drivers beware of this company. The Management lies and will not honour terms that are set out.

The company itself is and has been in financial crisis for sometime. Their equipment and management is poor as is their treatment of staff.

The engagement of the employees is zero as is the integrity of the company and management alike.

Do not work here !

The only thing worse than the Equipment is the Management !
Driver (Former Employee) –  Bolton, ON5 June 2018
The Dispatch team is totally incompetent. Daily complaining about Quebec and how everything is because they do not know what they are doing there.

Simple tasks to be completed are never followed up on. Drivers are waiting for instruction and dispatch does not follow up.

Morning dispatcher is the worst and is negative and does not take any accountability but instead blames others. The equipment is falling apart and is not safe to drive,

The pay is lower than average and the work is delivering heavy Appliances and furniture hand bomb

Afternoon dispatcher is about as useful as a screen door on a submarine. Complete waste of oxygen
Pros
none
Cons
culture dispatch equipment heavy handbomb treatment job security

Great staff. Poor management
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Bolton, ON8 May 2017
Employees give it 150% but are not respected, valued or heard. If your hard up for work, it's a great place as the staff turnover is crazy but I would not recommend staying long term. The pay is minimal and you pretty much have to beg for a raise when the time comes.

Heavy lifting
Manutentionaire (Former Employee) –  Boucherville, QC6 November 2016
I worked there for about 3 weeks. This is hard labor lifting furniture for 8 hours and they force the over-time. Most workers were kind people and one supervisor was spending most of his time clowning around doing very little to almost no work.
Pros
OK salary
Cons
Heavy lifting

Your basic warehouse.
General Labourer (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB9 September 2015
Not overall the worst place to work however, when I worked there, it was rush rush rush every Monday morning 50+ Trailers one summer, mostly on two wheeled, up right hand carts, short staffed, everybody complaining about wanting to go home half way through the day, smell of alcohol and weed on a few individuals, no safety vests in the warehouse, very little workplace rights and, head office is in Quebec, they don't understand or have anywhere to call and lodge a complaint. However, Things could've changed since I was there.
Pros
Wasn't always a bad place to work, music, small warehouse and heated.
Cons
Short staffed, drugs, poor views on workplace safety and rights.
