Entry level (Ancien employé) - Canada - 30 juin 2020
If you come work here. Expect to be unappreciated, unloading the truck, breaking your back, no appreciation or thank yous. The employees will be talking behind your back, but they will be nice up front. They won't really talk to you at first.. you will think it's because it's such a hard job, they don't expect people to last. (High turnover)
But, it's because there is a union, and the union protects not only employees against unfair treatment, it also protects the lazy employees and senior employees. They really have this clique type of thing going on.
Purolator talks about helping poor families and what-not. Maybe they should take care of the entry employees emptying the trucks and stacking 220lbs bins on top of each other. They ask that you can lift 70 lbs. But the bins that you stack with your partner are 220lbs. You stack around 25 per shift.
The drivers though (princesses), they won't even lift the 70lbs packages for deliveries. They say that they are saving their backs. The drivers are usually these old boomers, the ones who we're able to afford houses when they we're 1/3 of the current price. A bunch of old guys who sold your generation so that they can have theirs.
Management is just some guys who don't really work physically, they just come and look at you work, expecting this to make you work harder. Surveillance, like a bunch of vultures.
They will come look at you work, and not even help you at all.
If you start here, prepare to unload three 18-wheelers everyday, plus another one or so. Some employees are okay. Usually the newer ones.
They do not - plus...
You got a job.
Union works like organized crime, new employees are not appreciated, but are expected to do everything.
Purolator has a very supportive management team and the company is very flexible. They have team building events and fun activities to participate in. They have a great solutions team and offer positive coaching strategies.
Supportive Management, Social clubs, activities, draws, salary increases for productivity
Back to back calls, fast-paced environment, dealing with irate customers
I can’t say much because I was only part time at the desk. But for the most part it was a lovely job. Not overly difficult or stressful. You will get the occasional angry customer though if the delivery people leave the packages somewhere they disagree with.
Hire as part time 30hrs, permanent, flex. Then after four months get laid off. Even with a three month review score of 100% . Apparently they do this frequently. One month after lay off they have advertising for same job available. But don't contact or recall anyone who has been laid off, even if you had an excellentreview
Work environment was very poor company doesn’t care about employees.management is not approachable..lots of complaints to Human Resources department against management.high turnover within the company.
Poor place to work they interview questioning for a entry level warehouse job is terrible it's like you are being interviewed for an Management or Professional job, questions are not related to job whatsoever, being a couirer there not a place to be, you are expected to hit dream numbers of stops that are impossible to hit like 18 stops in an hr, and if you are a master at it they increase the numbers, managers and supervisors drive around and spy at you, and work every move on the computer cuz trucks are GPS and add more work basically
Purlator is one of the top company specializes in complete supply chain solutions from root levels, even though my short term contract did't understood me much, but over all awesome place to work and hopefully be able to reapply.
Can be long days, work in all kinds of environments. warehouse, outdoors, work in rain, snow, wind etc.
need to be fit, this job is not for someone who is not in great shape\health. lots of heavy lifting up to 70lbs, and 150lbs with 2 people
Work hard customers first.Show up every day,It is a job for people who like to work alone and enjoy being unsupervised, The task is simple.Drive safely don't get lost don't panic .Have fun. You will do well.
