High turnover of workers in the warehouse positions. Hard work is a requirement and is tracked (ie: pick rate per hour). Great place to work while you look for a job. Better than minimum wage to start with great benefits starting the first day. Most big perks kick in after 2yrs (like stocks and matching RRSP). 4 day work week with 10hr shifts. Lots of training and various job options available. Hard to advance unless you "know someone" or meet the managers requirements. Tenure, education or experience may not get you a promotion. Long hours and extra days required during busy seasons (Xmas and "Prime Week" in July). Vacation and "sick days" (PTO-personal time off) available. LOTS of rules including attendance and safety. Workshoes paid and vest/gloves etc. provided. Lunchroom with vending machines and microwaves. Typical warehouse environment. Training on forklift/order picker power trucks. Managers may not have training or experience for managing people so work can get frustrating and rules seem excessive (and sometimes strange). Pay is low for experienced forklift drivers compared to other companies. Little or no interview for basic warehouse worker (over 18yrs old, read/write English, stand/walk for 10hr shift, lift 45lbs). Some part-time positions available during busy seasons. Secure location=no cellphones or cameras.
Pay is low for experienced forklift drivers, Hard to advance in job levels, Pressure on staff to meet pick rates.
