Cash Application Lead (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 November 2018
My typical day consists of applying payments to customer accounts and dealing with emails. I have learnt to work in a fast pace environment, which I prefer and enjoy. My work place consists of friendly team work and a happy, comfortable environment.
Supply Chain (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 11 December 2018
terrible management. No room to grow. Manager only by title they have no idea how to deal with team. Favoritism is the key to be taking in consideration. Great company with good benefits. Dont work in Supply Chain. Good place to learn how not to manage people.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 October 2018
*Supervisor expects immediate results without proper training period. *Poor communication & support from management. *Disorganized chaos, last minute rush. *Poor archaic inventory recording, labeling and tracking resulting in disorganized stock piling of crates, depleted shelves. *Time wasted searching for supply of orders. *Un-supportive, incompetent local HR department. *Quick to cast blame without investigating. **Backstabbing, frail, holier-than-thou, thin-skinned front office co- worker. *Continuous failing of IT.
Analyst (Current Employee) – Burlington, ON – 11 October 2018
Senior management has vision for the future. The company is constantly changing and evolving. Lots of challenges and opportunities but no consistency / accountability. People are friendly but management is self-promoting and self-serving. Unrealistic requests in unrealistic timelines. Job work/life balance is not very good and the workload is unmanageable.
Friendly people, flexible work hours, clean environment, extra holiday in month of birth
Human Resources (Current Employee) – Burlington, ON – 12 September 2018
Great company to work for as there is tons to learn, ability to gain more responsibilities and growth internally. Department teams are very collaborative and willing to help. There is a constant drive for success and improvement. Great autonomy to leave your imprint!
Free snacks, Extra vacation day on your birthday month, flexible hours
Accountant (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 28 August 2018
Great place to work if you were very close with management; otherwise you were just another face in the department. Never involved in any projects. I learned that no matter how hard you try or any successful achievements in the company, you`ll never be promoted.
Free day off in month of birthday
Lack of management communication; lack of advancement; lack of management commitment
Former counter sales (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 13 July 2018
Never worked at a place before that made you go through safety regulations first before doing HR payroll forms. Took them 4 days to approach with payroll forms. Co-workers were good to work with. For a plumbing supplier to not hire tradesman is very different, guess the hourly pay reflects that. High turnover rate of employees below the management level should tell a company to not be so cheap.
wolseley in Fort McMurray is a very poor atmosphere to work in daily
counter sales, order picker (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 20 March 2018
My experience with wolseley in Fort McMurray was not the greatest. The management and staff are very unprofessional the language and way customers and their employees are treated in very distasteful. This is a very clicky work place good luck trying to fit in here unless you party hard and play in a band. There is little to no training for the counter so if your back ground in not dealing with plumbing good luck.
Customer Service Representative (CSR) (Former Employee) – Charlottetown, PE – 5 February 2018
was a good place to have a career in the Wholesale business. I learned a lot, both from Wolseley and our customers.The company provided lots of training for the employees and always was willing to help if the need arose
Inside Sales (Former Employee) – Concord, ON – 11 August 2017
Lack of training, you need to belong to the clique with management to get any respect. Managers are like slobs. It's like putting lipstick on a pig. No organization when moving two branches together. It's like backing a dump truck up and dumping everything into a pile. Always taking counter staff from branch and sending them to other branches so that would leave so called flagship branch short staffed. Co workers were good, management terrible, should have been captain of the the Titanic and then they still couldn't sink it properly.
Order Selector/ shipper (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 19 July 2017
worked in order selecting/shipping, very stressful place to work it is a kind of do as I say not do as I do kind of place to work will get along great of you are a friend of the 2 kids running the floor
Warehouse/Inside Sales (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 May 2017
Fun place to work most days. Customers were more like friends than customers, but still able to maintain a professional atmosphere. Love that the staff knew each other by name, didn't feel like just a number like some other companies.
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Olds, AB – 10 April 2017
This is a good place to gain experience, gain knowledge and apply your skills. Education is available when time permitting which benefits all parties involved. Management can be an obstacle with regards to advancement and ability to relocate is a definite asset.
Reasonable hours, education programs
Limited opportunity for advancement without relocating
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – 21 February 2017
Company sets quota's that are too high to meet. They want you to work as fast as possible and make no mistakes. Logically it is impossible to have both, as the faster you go the more mistakes you will make. If want overtime work it goes by seniority so new employees never get to work when they want. Lots of employee turnover, for every 10 people they hire, only 1 or 2 remain after 3 months. Supervisors are not very friendly, probably because they know they will have to terminate you in a few months.
Volunteer Work (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 13 February 2017
We volunteered to count inventory. It was fast paced but worth the time spent. It was a long process but once it was complete it was very comforting. The workers were kind and helpful, also easy to work with. The hardest part was keeping track of everything. The most enjoyable part was working as a team.
