Varsteel is a good company to work for. They treat their employees well and compensate them fairly. The management team is solid, but I would say that communication can be lacking at times which I found frustrating. But overall, I wouldn't discourage anyone from working here. There isn't alot of turnover, so obviously people are happy.

Management seems fair the work is tedious my only issue is the group lead on my shift was a serious bully... He never has nothing nice to say always blowing off incredibly rude judgmental/racial comments. Dirty looks screaming at you throwing things at you Micro managing you.... Its like he wants you to quit. The most toxic person who just brings waves of negative energy. Trust me this will severely lower you're quality of life not worth it at all. Also they have a serious rodent problem.
Pros
steady work
Cons
toxic people/person

I have to say I really enjoyed the environment in the office. It is very fast paced. All inside Sales are very pleasant, patient and happy to work with you. I had various questions and everyone was happy to help in any way.
I felt it was a team environment.
Pros

This was my first class 1 driving position and it is an excellent place to learn. While deadlines are important, safety is more important. There is always someone available to help make your deliveries safer. The major issue is how most deliveries are loaded in the first place, it takes time and consideration on behalf of an experienced watchful driver to make the loads deliverable. Training is lack luster at best. Always take your time and make sure your load is safe.
Pros
good mix of home life and work
Cons
training program is non existant
