I worked in Calgary base for 2years. Good pay. But they push hard. They want the job done in 8 or 10 hours. But if it takes 15 hrs you get in trouble. So what. But take pics of your hours of work at the end of every day. They will hack the punch clock and drop your hrs. I experienced it several times. After 6 months I got my route figured out. I was done in 8 hrs or so. But that’s hustling and they pay 10 hrs. If I remember right. I got fri sat sun off. 4 day work week is great. I hurt my back. And they had me string bags for light duty. Again they want 1000bags done by lunch. As a driver I laughed at this and done maybe 100 bags. You won’t see to many overweight guys working here. Very physical.
Points positifs
Good pay/benefits/hours
Points négatifs
Management pushes hard

Good pay if your willing to work for it. The bosses know what they are doing and help where they can. My only gripe is the amount of punishment I had to put my body through to make the good money.
Points positifs
Good pay. Doughnuts at meetings.
Points négatifs
Long hours.

I worked as a Customer Service Rep/Delivery Driver for Canadian Linen in Lethbridge, AB. The job itself was okay. It was physically demanding and at times, quite stressful. The big problem at this branch was the management. There was no support from any management from the GM to the service managers. I was blamed for every problem on my route, they didn’t back me up when customers complained, I had to fight for any time off including sick time and bereavement leave, and they were overall unprofessional. If you can deal with poor management, you are paid well to deal with it.
Points positifs
3 day weekends. 4 - 10 hour work days a week.
Points négatifs
Paid for 40 hours a week, even if you work more. No overtime.

The pay is pretty good, but they are really demanding. Long days, hard on the body, and some perks at some of the customer accounts. You are really just a number and that’s how management sees you. The people working in the plant are treated like slaves and do not make enough.
Points positifs
Good pay, Benefits, freedom when on route
Points négatifs
Hard on the body, Management

The work itself is absolutely disgusting, changing out filthy mats, mops, and filthy coveralls. The management is absolutely terrible and if you ever bring up any kind of constructive criticism to make working there better, all you are met with is "you don't like it, get another job". Drivers are constantly being given more and more work and responsibility. The only good thing about this job is the pay, and the 3 day weekends.
Points positifs
The pay
Points négatifs
Pretty much everything

It’s a great place to work; physical demanding but if your willing to hustle you can do well. I made a lot of friends that I still have years after leaving this employer. I’d go back.
Points positifs
Like running your own business but not having to do half the job.
Points négatifs
Physical pain and can get held back by the plant.

Two different environments from province to province. Alberta is the only non union canadian linen, and being unionized didnt change the job at all. The work load for the union was heavier, there was less pay since Vancouver basically gives product away practically for free, and the hours were gruelling. As a result, the sales and management push the csrs to the brim, and the truck was overflowing with product and they still demand more. Working in alberta was awesome. Vancouver is awful. are
Points positifs
Good benefits package, best linen company to work for ( unifirst is even worse!)
Points négatifs
Long hours, heavy work with handling gross, wet mats and disgusting bins of kitchen towels that get mouldy, management is awful, Pay not that great for the effort put in.

I found it very high paced. Very stressful environment. Always want more product with broken down machines. Always pushing for people to do more with less. Doesn't matter if you are new or been there for a long time. They pay you the same even your raise in pay. Don't look for any actual help.
Points positifs
pension is you stay long enough
Points négatifs
Always stressful

Early shifts, manage your own time. Daily loads are physically demanding. Your days start between 530 and 7 to load and you leave the plant by 8-9 the latest, get back to finish your shift after deliveries by 3-4 depending on how busy your route is. I was laid off due to Covid 19. Great place to work
Points positifs
Weekends off and holidays
Points négatifs
Physically demanding

I started working there and was greeted with warm welcomes from my co workers. However, the people in upper management only see you as easily replaceable and don’t hesitate to take out their anger on whoever is in their vicinity at the time. The embarrassingly low wages and toxic work culture/management made me leave the company after 7 months
Points positifs
Friendly co workers with good cooperation
Points négatifs
Lower pay than McDonald’s and you work 10x harder. Management is a complete joke

Poorly managed and employees treated with disrespect. Training for the job which you are hired for is not done properly or not done at all. Bad company to work for.

It is a job and that's it, just a job and not a future! No structure in place and management is confused most of the time! The pay is ok but not up to par! And no pension plan!

The job of CSR is actually a lot of fun, meeting new people daily, learning about different industries and interacting with owners/managers of places as small as a take out restaurant, to a billion dollar manufacturer. A lot of pressure is put on the reps, you have to basically run all day long to complete your route, and even then it is sometimes impossible with the amount of stops, and the "desired" management end of the day. The job is in no way a cake walk. Its constant movement the entire day, 30-40 stops a day, some take 5 minutes to change a mat, put a bag of towels and aprons on the shelf, and change out the laundry bag. Some take an hour to change a dozen mats, bring in 50+ linen bundles and towels, and tag and load 30 bags of dirty laundry to take back to the plant. The bags are heavy when fully loaded with wet and dirty items, and the smell at the end of the day is revolting at times. The customers never seem to be happy because the product counts that they signed a contract to pay for every week never seem to be what was sent in to be cleaned the week before. Missing garments, no or the wrong linens sent back, poor quality items and the their seemingly endless calls to the office to air their complaints that seem to fall on deaf ears, have left a bad taste in their mouths. Some of the managers are outstanding and go above and beyond to help their staff and the clients, others shrug off any grievances and don't seem to care a bit about anything but towing the corporate line, and making staff feel like they mean nothing. If you want a challenging job, both - plus...
Points positifs
Decent pay and union benefits, occasional free meal from clients
Points négatifs
Just about everything

Title of engineering is deceiving, more of a labor and maintenance background. Hated every minute of my experience and hated showing up everyday. Probably the most depressing experience of my life and not at all what I went to school for.
