Insurance package is the best thing about wotking there.

If you enjoy being a number and working for a corrupt company, Wolseley is the place for you! They will never put an employee before a customer. There are so many "clicks", and they pick and choose who gets better treatment, no matter how hard you try to prove yourself.

Pros

Employees discounts and insurance

Cons

Long hours and no advancement
Was this review helpful?

Very dirty and unsafe environment to work in.

Lack of leadership. Upper management not ready to make changes. Counter guys work really hard with no recognition. Outside sales reps don’t take any phone calls. Always hear not my job. No team work.

Pros

Some very helpful employees.

Cons

Too many to list here.

Its an ok place to wk.

As a deliver truck driver there equipment forklifts were decent to operate and the staff were helpful. Just be safe, pay attention, and always be fair and patient with customers.

Steady income and no shortage of work.

This is one of the best warehouses i've work at. They took me in with little warehousing experience, got full forklift training and the people i work with are always there to help me. The work is pretty basic, the place is kept clean, and there is no shortage of work.

Pros

Birthday day off, monthly gift cards, steady pay and good Management.

Cons

Some lifting required, working at heights.

The place is dirty and there are a lot of safety hazards

Surrey branch is the worst managed branch. It is so unorganized that it takes an hour to find printed orders. The manager does not care that the place is so dirty.

Pros

None

Cons

One of the most unorganized places to work.

Stay away

Abusive management, toxic work environment, the turnover is insane, at least 5 new hires a week and most just stay for the free forklift training get the certification and leave for a better job. you will not advance unless you are tight with management, over all a very ad place to work. Stay away if you're smart, many better positions available out there.

Pros

paid forklift certification training

Cons

everything else

Culture collaborative axée sur les clients et leurs employés

Nouvellement embauché pendant cette pandémie, Woseley a dépassé les attentes en matière de soutien à ses employés et à ses clients. Je suis fier de faire partie du groupe

Pros

Édifice neuf a Laval, télétravail, belle culture d'entreprise

Cons

Rien a noter vraiment

Not a cool place to work

No support from staff, not the right place to work unless you know somebody working in the company. You always feel you are not welcome to the company

Fun, Easy Going, Relaxed but Fast Paced at times overall great place

Knowledgeable staff, mix of both industrial/pipeline valves & fittings, and wholesale plumbing supplies in the same building (separate divisions) but everyone works togetherLots to learn in both side if willing, deal with great customers from all industries: it plumbing/mining/civil/industrial/oil & gas/mills/agriculture etc.Excellent management, very understanding with work & life balance. Can be physically demanding when required but great teamwork & Fun overall workplace.

Pros

Great team, everyone works together, fun

Cons

Can’t think of any

Change Management In place NOT the Company it was

Sadly Change in Upper Management has created a poor culture where everyone HAD a voice but now fear of reprisals or being marked reign... Fear culture . It WAS a great place to work but that mentorship is no longer present. Sales used to be king but with Change Management, product is not available, pressure cooker environment these days where people who used to care , shrug and go oh well. It was a great place to work , I had a great career but things have changed . Choose Wisely.

Great Interview Process

The hiring process was very quick and the HR department was vey responsive to questions or concerns. I received an offer after a couple rounds of interviews. Everyone was friendly, welcoming and eager to help me out with any questions and concerns. Really liked the family atmosphere of the company.

Pros

Remote, benefits after three months, flexibility

High pressure environment

Overall not too bad of place to work for but definitely geared towards the plumbing division more than other divisions. Communication from top down is on a need to know basis which can be a plus and a minus.

Pros

Free pop/water cooler

Cons

Some coworkers are not team players.

Poor place to work

Severely overworked and wage was pathetic.No incentives or extras given to employees. 9 hour work day with no time to take a break or have lunch. All about the Corporate headquarters and Management. Profit is all that matters to this company, all at the cost of it’s underpaid employees.

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours heavy work underpaid.

Creates a hostile environment.- The person in Actuation, is rude. - poor inventory- poor shelving and warehousing. - you are being questioned when taking breaks.
