WIS is a good company but very unstable with shifts and available job positions for employees. I do not have fixed shifts. it varies. i can be called out of the blue to work and not be called for a long period of time.My advice to anyone looking for a stable and available job, do not work with WIS
You work very hard for the little they pay you and you’re treated as a possession not an employee. To much gossip and backstabbing in both management and employee levels. Wouldn’t recommend unless desperately seeking and nothing else available. I would rather collect pop bottles off the street then go back as I am older of the crew and was expected to do keep up. Have some respect and be grateful people work to their full potential and stay out of the bs.
Gossip, disrespect, bullying
In my time there, the people are who make the job fun. There are some stores you look forward to going to and then some stores where you are looking forward to the staff being there. It may not be for everyone. There are some people that are going to thrive hard there.
The job is not boring as you do something new everyday. There are opportunities to grow within the company. The pay increases as the productivity goes up. Fair and helpful management. It is a physical job so gets you moving, no heavy lifting.
Wis,est devenu comme une famille pour moi,Il offre possibilité de voyager , possibilité d'avancement et de diversité. Les gens sont pour la plupart très gentil et respectueux.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
the work involves travelling to multiple locations and doing physical inventory counts. It is boring, mindless and unchallenging. The schedule is flexible. That being said, you will be working a night shift one day (your day ends at around 1am) and then a 7am shift the following day in an entirely different city. Sometimes you will be working in multiple cities on the same day. You will never know whether to pack lunch or not because you could only be working for 2-3 hours a shift or sometimes 9 hours. By far the least engaging place to work at.
They hire anyone! The St. Catharines location was very cliquey and they treated new people like you’re nothing. I worked there for a year and they sat me down at 8 months and “rewarded” me with a 5 cent raise like it was something BIG. They offer transportation to and from locations they inventory but if you can drive yourself do that. You can leave quicker. This was decent til I found something better that actually valued me as a person
Schedule sucked, people were awful
This kind of work takes some dexterity. It's fast paced and very repetitive work. From kneeling or sitting, standing and climbing up ladders or step stools. Physical lifting and store facing work is part of this line of work. Team members are friendly and management is supportive. Speaking of paid travel, paid travel is bonus for some out of town retailers. Hours can vary and any one looking for more hours would be looking for morning and evenings on any given day. Overall, this company and job is excellent for people who enjoy fast paced work at modest pay.
Holiday pay and discounts
Repetitive, unpredictable length of work, modest pay
It was an okay place to work. For me (my own personal opinion) I didn’t like it. I’m more of a retail, interacting with the public kind of person. I wouldn’t recommend it if you don’t want to get up at 3 or 4 in the morning and working as late as 1 or 2 in the morning.
Travail d'équipe mais la compétition fait défaut à cet esprit!
When the rule becomes: Haul in & set up, count'em, then gather & leave, day after day, the only variety comes in the size of store and style of stuff to be counted. The only real training comes in use of the handheld, and doing the job. Most of new workers won't realize how important our job is in the Machinery of Business until they get past the first few steps in the WIS hierarchy.
Scheduling is flexible, could be used as a side job.
Minimal healthcare, no pensions
Excellent work/life balance, very chill and easy-going, pay is very nice for what you do(super easy work). Unfriendly supervisors and dishonest practices (favoritism, withholding shifts for petty reasons, etc.). Although the pay is pretty good when you are actually working, they have a tendency to not give you any shifts for weeks at a time (I've had 2 jobs in the past 3 weeks). This makes this work nearly impossible to live on.
Decent pay, easy work
The office locally allows abusive offenders and abusers to work for them. The job left me with a cut hand and I was always covered in dirt. The office did not have management for five months and allowed harassment and public exposure of staff private parts to flourish. This business must be avoided.
