horrible job! beware
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON27 February 2019
Most of the reviews on here are posted by Wurth management. Be VERY cautious of working here. Management is VERY shady here. They are all part of a big boys club, worrying only about keeping their jobs. Reps are treated like garbage being micromanaged each day, even being watched at their own homes by management.

training is over the top brainwashing, products are the most expensive garbage on the market and targets are impossible.
you are a number here, not a person. NO work life balance at all.

the WORST job I have ever had. don't walk, RUN away from this hole.
Pros
going home at the end of the day
Cons
absolutely everything

Toxic-Narrow-minded Approach To Operations

Another company that has major issues with listening to those who work the front lines and deal with the everyday battle of a poorly organized company. What works in Germany doesnt work in Canada, wake up!
Pros

Cons
Too many to list. Stay away!

Stable but toxic office
Main office (Current Employee) –  Guelph, ON6 October 2018
Worked in the main office for about a year. The biggest complaint I had was with management, who all seemed ignorant to making necessary changes. There’s also a huge problem with toxic, complacent people staying for YEARS that make the problem worse. If you are a dynamic person who loves making meaningful change, stay away from here.

Additionally, there is a huge problem with employee turnover, reps turn over about 1-2% a day, and head office has troubles filling roles, which means theyre constantly understaffed and the people they do hire is less than impressive . Salaries are way below what the market pay is.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Slow to evolve, toxic, lots of infighting

Good corporate environment with fun people
Shipping and Receiving Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON23 May 2018
Wurth was a very intense shipping job as there were always tight quotas to be met every month. The building was brand new and state of the art for a warehouse so it made for a clean working environment. The warehouse staff all were very friendly with each other at all times. Top management were great people with great personalities and always fun to talk to. The hardest part of the job was the tight deadlines and long hours sometimes when those deadlines needed to be met. The best part was the food culture inside of the building. Yummy!
Pros
great bonuses
Cons
long hours

Run just run
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Timmins, ON15 November 2017
Over my 10 years in sales this has been by far the worst establishment to work for. The only focus is new accounts and not growing existing relationship or providing superior customer service. Open the account and then never get reacurring sales because your priced out of the market. Support?? Not existent. Calls to management rarely answered, customers getting freight charges out of the blue when they never had them before. Just horrible all around. If you are looking to get in this business I emplor you to look at alternatives ie Fastenal, C Class anyone, they CANNOT be run worst than this company. Also, if you are in business looking for a supplier I would suggest another company. Do not support a company like this that treats both employees and customers as a number.
Pros
Christmas shut down
Cons
Terrible Pay structure, sub par benefits, no management support

Overachievers will be punished
Sale Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 July 2017
Great company to work for. Management is a little confused and out of touch with what is going on in the field.

It doesn't pay to be successful with this company, your targets will go through the roof and will be unattainable.
Pros
Car, Phone, iPad
Cons
You are an island and don't expect any support from office staff, you have to do it for as long as you can the best you can all by yourself.

Set your personal Life aside!
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Acheson, AB20 June 2017
Long hours and big expectations. They like to threaten. If your not making money the manager isn't either. Then they start breathing down your neck. It's not a business Development role at all either. Run and gun style sales. Don't really build relationships with any customers. Pricing is out to lunch. Whether your going to show up and unpack the stuff. Century Vallen does the exact same thing!
Pros
Embarrasing Vehicles. Chemical line.
Cons
Long hours for what your getting paid for!
