Future of Company is Unknown
The company the last few years has been poorly run. Future outlook seems dim. Multiple locations closing due to lack of business. Sales team unable to secure new customers.

Loved working here
The crews were great people to work with and the training was excellent. They helped you out in a pinch if you were falling behind. The hours were flexible enough for me at a time when my schedule was really busy with other concerns and they worked with me to accumulate hours.

Terrible Employees
Union runs roughshod over management, nothing gets accomplished on time, no performance standards, ridiculous break structure, constantly disappointed clients/customers who's trucks/drivers are often delayed in excess of 8hrs.

under pressure working environment
Some of senior employees do not treat new employees well and it seemed like upper management also stand in favour of senior staff. They misuse their seniority to harass new employee and always try to create negative work environment for new staff. Most of time, new staff work under pressure from some of their senior coworkers.

Double Standards Mangement & HR are Liars
This company entices you with lies how they are people orientated and concerned for the well being of their staff!!! However at the first given opportunity they will throw you under the bus and lie to cover their back.

Good workers
Great worker bees, poor leadership. No strategy in place. Performance management goals are made up on the spot with no direction or input from managers. Benefits for salaried employees are subpar. Respect for staff is virtually nonexistent except for the odd good manager that supports and backs their team. Leadership is not interested in leveraging the expertise of their employees.

No concern for you, just the buisness
Ungodly hours of work for non union, incapable management, moving targets. No communication downward of policy/procedure change. Favoritism at it's finest.
Pros
It's a paycheque
Cons
no work life balance, breaks when you can find them even a lunch break, senior management unresponsive and dictatorial.

Poor Management
Some managers in this company think they are the CEO and treat employees like a peice of crumb. Other managers are great leaders and work with the employees. Depends who you have, as a lot ofnthe good managers have quit the company.

Used to be a good place to work
Versa used to be a good place to work, but that quickly ended as countless managers and GM’s weee let go and or left on their own. Versa’s Management team likes to think they had an idea of how the culture was in each of their buildings but little did they know that the unions were dictating what happened between those walls regardless of what management tried to implement.

As with any company there are good people their and some others are less desirable.


At the end of the day it was a paycheque nothing more nothing less.


Versa seems to have gotten too big for its own good.
Cons
Culture, management not listening

Good Good Place to work
Good Place to work I like reces peices and m&m's. Ice cream is good too and chocolate milk. Sometimes it is good to rest but only when the work is done in the cold freezer

Disorganized and high rate of turnover
The salary of the job position of dockworker is pretty good, but there are a lot of downsides to this job. It is a cold storage warehouse with temperatures ranging from -5 to -25. New dockworkers are sometimes forced to do inventory in the freezer on a weekly basis of 8-9 hours. It is like working outside in extreme temperatures during winter. The workload is also tremendous and the amount of freight received and shipped should require more employees to be hired. The supervisors I worked under weren't the most friendly individuals either. Management also doesn't allow you to apply for a new shift unless you've been working there for at least six months, and that is only if there are open positions posted. There isn't much room for advancement and upgrading between job positions. I worked here for less than a year and saw quite a few people quit and new people get hired as replacements. All in all, a so so job at best.
Pros
salary
Cons
workplace culture, conditions and environment
