Working at Windsorm Plywood was awesome. There was always orders to be filled and to get ready and placed somewhere in the yard for easy access for pick ups. Some days it was busy some days it was easy. I met some good people working at Winsor everyone was nice. I would work at Windsor again if I still lived in Winnipeg.
A good company if you like to show up, do your work and go home. Works great for families. Hardly any overtime. Not too progressive, but the people are friendly.
There is Lots you can take away from working here, especially if your looking to become a carpenter! Windsor is a unique store, and has many niche products. Great for consumers and better for contacts looking to take advantage of there delivery process! Would not recommend as for full time employment! Outrages amount of responsible is put on employees at a non competitive rate! The pay structure is very askew and expect empty promises. Structurally speaking there is virtually no management at times can be good but for the most part i felt it hurt the culture of the company! It is up to the employee to figure out what tasks are to be completed! Expect to miss coffees and lunches as its consistently a bare bones crew. Staff is mostly friendly and can be helpful in most areas beside any tasks you'd be required to do! Peers are very friendly and take a real interest in your life and make the job much more bearable. That being said you'll be looked down upon and treated poorly for miss-happenings that occur weather it be your fault or others! Id recommended this for a student or summer job! if your looking for full time work id recommend this as last resort if possible! However be warned for a min wage job there is a robust amount more opportunity out that is much more reasonable structured! Current employees look overly miserable and/or given up on trying!
Working at head office is a no where job with low pay, no bonuses or raises, expensive benefits with low coverage. no advancement or recognition for good work. No team work or cooperation. You never know where you stand and the management is very weak and does not manage people. There is favouritism and blindness to issues and questionable behaviours. No communication or even disbursement of tasks. Lack of ability to keep employees. Staff turn overs occur often. Managers are not supportive and are not Leaders. Poor management of budgets, with wastefulness and poor decisions being made. No future in a dead end job.
Get yard ready for customers , organize products and clean up all areas for easy access to products. Help customers find what they need , cut special orders , load/unload product from trucks , deliver goods to customers . Hardest part - delivering drywall. Best - dealing with customers.
Personnel including management were fantastic to work for and with, Your ideas and suggestions were always accepted and taken seriously to help improve the customer experience.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

great group of people
Lots of grumpy customers
When it is busy it is good, but when the business is slow, there is an expectation for you to "find something to do" when there are no clear tasks. Very minimal training provided for the job. If you like heavy lifting and working in a yard it is okay.
Found myself busy most days but not involved in any decision making, creative aspects of work etc. Company on a plateau. Management is stagnant, don't know how to lead and not forward thinking. Employee recognition and appreciation is an absolute joke. Raises maybe every couple years to cover cost of living.Benefits were whittled down over the years. Just go there, do your work and leave. Not an inspiring workplace at all therefore there is high turnover.
lack of employee appreciation/recognition, high turnover of employees, managers don't know how to manage people
