current employee tells all
Picker/Packer, loader (Employé actuel) – Ajax, ON – 9 juin 2019
ive been working at this DC almost 3 years. the money is OK. the benefits are good. if you work hard and have a positive attitude, you can keep this job. if management can see you have potentisl they will work with you.
since Loblaw took over the Ajax DC ive noticed a slight improvement in culture and respect for employees, but its still pretty bad.
ive been forced to work holidays im the past, only to be sent home shortly after shift start.
ive seen people fired because tgey injured themselves at work on probation. ive been shorted pay that im still fighting to get (about $500 shorted over 8 months)
check your pay stub every week, because they can be careless.
a good job if your other options are fast food, occasional work, no benefits or contract work.
sometimes free lunch, incentive, lots of optional overtime
the work os hard to learn and physically demanding, low levels of respect, some people use steroids or coke to enhance their performance and management is complicit.
