Toxic management. Avoid like the plague.

Worked here for just under 3 months this past winter. The guys you work with are really nice and helpful which is great because management will give you zero guidance or feedback. All my practical training came from asking my coworkers questions. I was given one day of order picking training in the freezer and then I was basically on my own. Managers won't give you any guidance during your probation period, they'll smile and nod at you during daily role-call, but won't provide any meaningful assistance to you. Hitting the unofficial quota (1200 cases a shift) is not possible during the slow season because they're simply aren't enough orders to pick. The voice picking system they use is very old, and will cause you to make errors. The system needs to train your voice commands for it to work properly but it absolutely will cause errors for you. My headset had issues distinguishing the numbers 1/8 and 2/3, which can cause big problems for you. Some of the pick locations are in extremely narrow freezer aisles that are further obstructed by stock and pallets, and in a few locations there are no signs or markings as to what product belongs in a given slot which again can easily lead to picking errors. The layout of the aisles makes it unnecessarily harder for pickers because heavy items are placed at both the beggining and end of the pick locations, meaning you will have to stack heavy items on top of lighter items that came before it. I was let go about a week before my probation was to end. The reason given was that "expectations were not being met". However at no point in my - 


Good co-workers.


Management/Supervisors are abysmal.

High productivity, good people

Most of the people are great to work with, pay is above industry standards. As long as you don't mind the cold and potential long hours job is pretty good

Not bad

Worked for Versa for a long time, the pay is good and in the end there arefar worse places to work. The benefits are great and safety is pretty good, kinda dysfunctional but what 3pl isn't.

Hypocrisy in business model run by tyrant management with a facade working culture.

Management is ridiculous and are useless. It's a working environment that feels segregated in culture with miserable long term employees who feel self entitled. The pay is good for long term work but don't expect long term work when you work in a brainless job position where you are being monitored constantly like a maximin prison with a high turn over rate. Over an average of a dozen people have quit or been let go in a 1.5 month span during their probation period. This place is a joke with simply miserable people who are stuck in a career of redundancy and simply having internal conflict over job pay and specific job duties. Everybody thinks they have a rank over you and are constantly monitoring you. It really does feel like a prison working in a freezer. Good luck to you new fishes.


Good pay and benefits.


Overall horrible work environment & culture. A lot of miserable people.

Steady job good for long term

Great place to work but remember it's a cold storage if you don't like the cold don't work here other than that it's a good job to make a living great pay

Very Cold and repetitive

Hard and cold days for very little pay. Be aware that to this company you will forever be a number on a spreadsheet. You will never be valued or appreciated.

Very stressful

Management can be very pushy and the work is tedious. They do not provide you with warm gloves for working in the cold environment. The boxes can be heavy and you will feel tired/gassed out quickly if you do not have stamina. if you have fun people to work with, goodluck to you.

Good company but poor management

The company is surrounded with great people, minus the upper management that have no clue how to operate anything more than their mouse and keyboard. There are heavy delays in communication from central even though they are only 3 flights of stairs away. 3 out of 4 of the supervisors are a joke, and if you smoke you seem to get all the breaks you want.

Fast-paced but simple

I came into this company without ever having operated an electric pallet jack. The manager and warehouse supervisor were kind enough to give me 3 paid half-days during which I was instructed in the use of the machine and given the practical test. Since then I have worked as an order picker on the 4pm-12:30am shift and am so far enjoying it quite a bit. It is cold, but the fast pace of the job keeps the blood flowing and the body warm enough. I would recommend this job to anyone who can handle extreme cold while maintaining high picking volumes. Employees at this location become UFCW members with a generous benefits package after a 3 month probation period, although freezer & late shift hourly premiums are already given prior to that.


Solid pay and benefits, consistent break times, friendly and competent warehouse manager, well-maintained workplace


Cold (worth it for the pay imo), occasional but easily fixable malfunction of picking headset

It’s alright - Unionized

There’s a union so there is some hostility at times with management. Other than that, good pay, good benefits. One of the best compensation packages in Ontario for a warehouse job.




Not much room for advancement.

Not much fun. Dead end job

Ok place and position to get some experience for a year or two. Beyond that it is not a progressive environment to work in. A lot of turn over in the Engineering department and the management of the department as well. Could not find capable or well-qualified people.

Excellent place to work

I have been with Versa for over a decade and have always loved it here. I am treated fairly, encouraged to learn new things and branch out and although I am happy at the job I have I have been given multiple opportunities to move up. If you are willing to do your share you will always be appreciated and praised.


Family-like culture, management is accessible and truly hears you, work is interesting

Contract position

Pay was good 8 years ago, new management doesn't seem to think the rising costs of being an Owner Operator justify a increase in pay. This is why I sold my truck and left

Cold, seniority based employment

- 20 degrees Celsius working environment Decent hourly wageUnionized Need seniority for days shifts most likey will end up on evenings and nights Lots of overtime during summer and can get slow during winter

Office staff

Keeps you busy but very repetitive. Good place to work if you want to master your job and do the same thing day in and day out. The pay is fair, the work environment is relaxed and allows for you to get to know your coworkers.

You'll be punished for working hard and rewarded for never doing anything.

Management is very weak, they're not bad people but they'd spend hours trying to hammer a round peg into a square hole instead of finding a better solution to the problem. They have a strong culture of "as long as it gets done what's the problem?" and only make changes when there's an inconvenience to them.Most of the older workers on the dock have a tendency to delegate their work to newer employees, the night crew in particular often ignores their duties and leaves the day shift playing catch up. There are some great people who work on the floor who do fantastic work, but they often do so to make up the slack of other employees just so they can go home on time. In the time I've worked at Versacold I could probably count the weeks we weren't short staffed on my fingers, people come in and leave because they can see they're going to be overworked while people who get paid more do much, much less than them. Because Versacold struggles to retain new hires, it makes life much more difficult for the people who actually want to get work done on the dock.There are some incredible people here who deserve much more than they're being given.The pay is good, it's the main reason I stay. Great starting wage, top rate is respectable especially for younger people. Lots of opportunity for overtime if that's something you're after. Benefits are pretty top notch, you get 2 weeks vacation after your first year and every stat can either be paid out as a full days wage or banked as a day off.Once you hit top rate you're left waiting for the yearly raise to ever see a bump in pay, which -
