Don't waste your time
Warehouse Associate (Ancien employé) –  Vaughan, ON20 septembre 2019
The big boss is a smart man but the people working underneath him make the company a bad place to work at.

There is obvious favouritism throughout the company, which makes it hard to be inspired to go to work.

They way underpay all their employees and play it off with "Well, Robertson isn't the company you go to make money"

One of the worst parts of Robertson is the HR director is buddy buddy with all the other awful people in the company so you don't even feel comfortable to go to her with any problems because you know that she's friends with them and nothing is going to happen.

There is a lot of gossip but it's easy to avoid.

This company is really what you make of it going in and depending who you have to work with, it could be a great place to work, but I wouldn't waste your time.

A Joke
Warehouse Order Picker (Ancien employé) –  New Huntington Rd17 juin 2019
Your daily routine is to grab order sheets and pick the orders while keeping in mind how skids should be built. For example heavy items on the bottom and build up towards lighter products. That should be your daily duty.

However what actually happens is you start your job and then Manager A says to do something, Manager B comes along and wants you to do something else, Manager C finds you and asks you about your job and why you aren't doing it. You explain yourself saying another manager needed some help.

You finish your day and your job to come back tomorrow to find out that you have been complained about for assisting other mangers and then fired for talking back (defending yourself).

Pass on this company you can find other similar jobs that start at 18$/hr instead of the 15$ here.

Unqualified manager
Warehouse Order Picker (Ancien employé) –  New Huntington Rd17 juin 2019
The current warehouse manager is unqualified to be in the position.

The amounts of obvious favoritism she hands out to her friends does not make you feel like working hard and trying to grow with the company. It just shows you upfront that no matter how hard you work, no matter how much product knowledge, no matter how much extra you put into this place; it will all amount to nothing unless the warehouse manager likes you.

Fast growing company
Purchaser (Employé actuel) –  Vaughan, ON30 mars 2019
I have been with Robertson for over 2 years and I have seen this company changed dramatically during my time.

The company has invested in technology, new locations and more importantly people. The company has hired new leaders to help transform the culture and make working at Robertson a great experience.

I love company into the office everyday and I appreciate what the leadership of the company is trying to accomplish in an extremely fast paced environment.

If you are self starter and like being challenged to make a difference, then this the place for you.

Great place to work and grow
Coordinator (Employé actuel) –  Head office13 mars 2019
This company is growing like crazy!! There are lots of opportunities to try new jobs and learn from others. Company rewards loyalty and hard work. Best perk is that the company is open to hearing and trying new initiatives. Great management and HR support.
Points positifs
Benefits plan, opportunities to grow and try new initiatives

Joke of a company
Order Picker/Packer (Employé actuel) –  Vaughan, ON11 mars 2019
When you train someone on a forklift you expect them to do one thing before anything else and that would be do not hit the rack. The only people they have driving the machines do just that. Constantly hit the rack.

They even have a guy who is a veteran of an employee and he has hit the racks 10+ times. He gets away with it too because he doesn't report it and intimidates anyone who mentions it.

If you must work here be prepared to throw all rules and common sense out the window.

Unqualified Managers everywhere
Supervisor (Employé actuel) –  Vaughan, ON11 mars 2019
While working at Robertson it becomes very clear very fast that this is the type of company that promotes people who are friends and family of current managers. No matter how hard you work or how much you learn you ultimately mean nothing to the company compared to family members or friends of current management.

This company desperately needs a management overhaul.

Corrupt
Supervisor (Employé actuel) –  Vaughan, ON27 février 2019
This is the kind of company that you need to get out of once you are in very quickly. Otherwise you get used to never having to follow any rules or guidelines and end up failing anywhere else.

Some workers even call it the Robertson way which is a total lack of respect for anyone or anything including supervisors and managers.

A complete joke
Order Picker/Packer (Employé actuel) –  Vaughan, ON27 février 2019
In the warehouse there are people that have supposedly been there for years that will do 1 or 2 orders to your 15 throughout a day. Those are the people that somehow get special treatment, compared to you.
When anything goes wrong it will be your fault and those special people will get off free.

People are constantly getting into arguments that no supervisor wants to address and even go so far as to threaten each other. Making comments like "meet me outside", or "you better watch yourself". Bringing these situations to the attention of supervisors or HR falls on deaf ears. In fact it annoys them that you are concerned about these things. While other companies it would be an instant investigation.

There are no apparent rules or regulations here. It is a lawless wasteland of HR and basic rights violations.
The labor board of Canada really needs to investigate this cesspool.

Toxic environment
Sales Representative (Employé actuel) –  Vaughan, ON27 février 2019
In the office there are quite a number of people that constantly shout out profanities and other nonsense all day long.

Losing ones temper, slamming phones, telling your co-workers off are all common place here. At one point i thought that this is just how they intimidate new comers or there was a hidden camera somewhere. Boy was i wrong.

Completely unprofessional workplace.
If you are starting out in the industry this is a good place to at least have on your resume so you can go somewhere better. However your patience, and demeanor will be tested.

Toxic work environment
Purchasing Agent (Employé actuel) –  Vaughan, ON27 février 2019
The favoritism in this workplace is so painfully obvious that it will honestly make you feel ill.

Unless you are family or friends with current employees before you are hired you'll have no chance at this company. If an outsider were to ask a question about a job they are met with "Go ask someone else" etc...

If a Co-workers family member or friend asks the same question they are babysat for weeks and even have other people take on their task so it can be done.

A Predator of a company
Order Picker/Packer (Ancien employé) –  Vaughan, ON27 février 2019
When they hire workers in the warehouse they specifically look for individuals that do not fully know their rights or are very desperate for work.

They pay minimum wage but will tell you that it is actually competitive with other companies in the area. However literally down the road is a company that would hire workers for 18$ for the same work as starting pay.

Avoid this company.

A Warehouse Scapegoat
Warehouse Worker (Ancien employé) –  Vaughan, ON26 février 2019
When you first start there people make it seem like it has a friendly atmosphere and open acceptance to newcomers. You go through your training and then are on your own.

However shortly after being left on your own you'll find that you are being blamed for mistakes that management and senior workers make simply because you are new. However this does not happen once or twice but constantly.

Then they have the nerve to bring up these things that you had no part of in your review after 3 months saying "they cannot justify a raise at this time due to previous errors" or "your supervisor said this about you a while ago".

If you have absolutely no where else to go for work by all means take a job here but it will be miserable, and you will regret it.

Nightmare workplace
Purchasing Assistant (Employé actuel) –  Vaughan, ON26 février 2019
This is not a respectable workplace. The language that people in the warehouse and office use is so vulgar even sailors would be shocked.

Any attempt to bring these issues to Hr are met with "This is just how things are around here".

Pathetic.

A temp agencies worst nightmare
Order Picker/Packer (Ancien employé) –  Vaughan, ON26 février 2019
Having been hired through an agency i can honestly say that i have never been treated so poorly by people in management. There are people there that will time your bathroom breaks and question you why you think taking a bathroom break should not count as your regular 15 minute break or why you should be able to take your full lunch break because you took a bathroom break.

Unbelievable

Lots of room for advancement if you're a hard worker
Sales Representative (Employé actuel) –  Vaughan, ON11 février 2019
Great place to work that doesn't suffocate workers with a bunch of middle management. If you work hard and prove yourself, the sky is the limit. It is a fair and honest place to work who believes in rewarding people who go above and beyond.

Great place to work
Purchasing Manager (Employé actuel) –  Vaughan, ON5 février 2019
What a great place to work! I'm lucky enough to have worked many years with Robertson and look forward to many more.

This is a company where hard work and problem solving pay off. nobody gets a free ride, but everyone has an equal opportunity to advance.

There is an apparel program that gets you free company clothing and lots of barbecues and events for employees.
Points positifs
Apparel program, great team of people
