The Job itself is good. you have a quota and an amount of time to get it done that give lots of leeway, but the lack of work in the system to do makes it hard. we were assigned letters and could only work within companies that the letters had. and no special accounts within the letters.
a goal of 450 per day was set and some days there were less then 300 available.
time given was 6am - 3am the next day but if you had something to do and didnt get to the work till 10pm and planned on working till 3am they would have given your letters away and Leave you with nothing for the day. all in all if you have the time to do the work in the morning, its a respectable job. can be confusing at time but lots of support.
Day and Ross is a well run company. Starting to improve on outdated systems and processes. Each dept atmosphere is different. EA role is not challenging however Day and Ross offers many challenging positions due to it's industry - transportation.
Got a telephone interview from a guy located in Calgary, told them how much I make at current employer, and the guy told me they can do higher than that for sure, also informed me that all the benefits and packages would be available on the first day of my work. I was so excited about such an offer.
After the real interview, they lower my compensation twice and zero benefits because it is a fixed-term position, which is exactly opposite for what they have promised me before.
Please be careful.
mismanaged, work hrs are all over the place, they don't tell you if your working that day unless you get a text in the morning saying where you are going. they don't care about employees at all. I had a truck break down and got a phone call saying my dad died, had to take a taxi home, had to leave the country to make arrangements and the funeral for a few days and when I got back I had no job!
$22 an hr
19 hrs work weeks, no respect from manager and dispatch!
Great place to work as long as you're productive. I've gained valuable experience and respect from both lower and upper management for my time saving tasks and financial savings for recommendation that I provided to upper management. there is no hard job, if you know what is required. You just have to apply yourself to the tasks assigned and if you're job conscious, tasks become easy. I enjoyed working at Day and Ross simply because I believe that productivity is essential to maintain your job and in the interest of financial gains for the company you're employed with.
Not enough helpers to train, fast based environment and no one to help with customers inquiries. Very stressful people should be assigned one particular task and follow it up before moving on to another task.
Management and staff at this company are professionals with the goal to succeed.
Training was delivered at a professional level. Opportunity to grow and cross trained in different departments was available.
The job was simple , and a bit physically demanding at times . Overall just a fill in job . Routes were decent , co workers were great made some decent friends outta the job . Management was poor at the time , communication was lacking between 2 offices down east .
Very fast pace at times, little slow or down-time. Long-term employees will help you but not forever, you better learn fast. Pay is good but job security is a question. If you're competent you'll find your co-workers friendly, but they don't suffer fools lightly or for long. Depending on the shift, the work is stressful and deadline-driven. You need to be alert and pay attention as everything is done at full speed, so you better be safety-minded! If you make the grade your forklift skills will tested and will improve to a very high level... these guys are wizards on their machines.
Working at Day and ross has been the best so far for me, i feel very lucky that i got to join their team since it has been the best opportunity that i have got till date. i feel really bad that i will have to leave this company due to moving to another province because of my personal reasons
