terrible company for advancement or opportunity
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 December 2017
not a great company to work for. you get hired where you are at and that where you stay forever. in my 4+ years there i did not see anyone advance within the company or get a cost of living increase or raise. the companys policy is to hire outsiders only and not promote from within. they will deduct 3$ from every paycheque for a "social fund" and in my time there i paid over 500$ into this fund and did not get anything out of it, so they basically stole 500$ from me. they will also deduct 180$ a month (90$ per paycheque) for their family benefits plan if you choose to use it. what a ripoff! the print industry is declining rapidly, and unless you want to get paid minimum wage to stand in front of a bindery machine or photocopier all day do yourself a favour and get a job in an industry that is not so influenced by the current enconomy. 90% of their business relies on construction and oil and gas and they will not hesitate to kick you to the curb if their sales are down . absolutely NO job security whatsoever, in my time there i saw well over 50 employees laid off.
no job security, raises, or benefits whatsoever.
