Most of the people here are decent souls. Some are truly the best guys you would ever want to work with. Some of the younger guys give off a subtle white power vibe. In most companies it's the older guys who are toxic. It's a real surprise to see that the some of the younger staff are the bad apples. Although, there was an older, and very greasy, office guy "joking" about the merits of beating his wife. That was really off-putting. No one laughed.
Wire guy (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 11 August 2018
Terrible place to work. Empty promises by management. No training unless you spend hours trying to maneuver an ancient system. Managers not willing to train employees. Unless youve been there for 5 years no one will help you. I would recommend working elsewhere.
Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 24 July 2018
Terrible place to work. they don't subscribe to family and want you to spend all of your time at home training. They give no support from upper management and when the upper management need to look good to their piers they fire someone without notice so it looks like they are doing something about it. They is some much "behind the back" going on that you fear for your own safety and well-being.

Branch manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 July 2017
Worked here for ten years and was unceremoniously laid off ON my ten year anniversary. (Best thing to happen in retrospect) Salaried employees will work twice the amount of paid time. Sales people will kill themselves trying to meet unrealistic targets. Upper management is SO out of touch. The company itself is constantly being sold to corporations who clean house when they take over. Fellow employees were usually good. It's a very male dominated company and the Good Ole Boys club is in full effect. Women are administrative. Men are management with few exceptions.
I worked in several departments from order picking, receiving and VMI. A typical day was pick up the the customer order sheet, go to the location and pull the quantity of the item ordered. Input all issues into the computer and print paperwork and shipping labels. I would then box, skid and wrap items and send to shipping department. The workplace culture is good. most people get along with everyone, however the job can be stressful. The hardest part about the VMI department was the tight deadlines to get the product to the customer and the constant rushes that had to get out right away. The most enjoyable part of the jobs was working with some really good people and always busy.
Manager (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 22 April 2017
Solid place to work with a good environment for training and advancement. All staff take a min of 40 hours training each year but are encouraged to do more. Lots of senior staff there to teach the business. Strong social club that holds events and also a baseball team. They are always looking to add strong team players to the group.
Account manager (Former Employee) – Toronto – 19 January 2015
Very very disorganized Little to no training or assistance Management was misleading, unrealistic and always looking for ways to undermine the employees' every move. Co-workers were the greatest part of going to work. They understand the delusional operations of the company and despised the incompetent management.
