Professional company, questionable management
Shipper/Stock Receiver/Stock Replenisher (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 23 January 2019
My time there wasn't terrible. Frustrating at times, as there seems to be a lack of urgency for maintenance on equipment to be done. Things break down a lot, and employees are then reprimanded because they're not going fast enough. Even though they don't have enough working equipment to do their job faster. Management is all about the bottom line. They promote "we invest in our workers", claiming they will bring in training programs such as forklift certification trainers, but they never follow through. Employee gratitude is very low from front office. Floor supervisors are usually good people, minus the few lazy ones who sit in the office all day, and the ones who take 50 smoke breaks per day. Culture is touted as the be all end all but culture is tainted from the top down. Raises in wages are non existent. I worked there for almost 2 years and didn't get a single raise. My friend who was supposed to get a $1000 bonus from referring me to the company never received it. Benefits accounts are hard to access. Constant harassment to front office is the only way to get any information. The person in charge likes to conveniently forget. Upper management live and breathe this company, and they expect all other employees to as well. In interviews, they'll tell you overtime isn't mandatory, but when you're on the job, you're told nobody goes home until it's done. Anyone who can't stay for overtime is reprimanded for "not being a team player", regardless of any legitimate reason they have.
Benefits, Job Security
Overtime demanded, no raises, frustrating management
