Very Poor Management
Employee (Ancien employé) –  British Columbia20 août 2019
No room for you to advance or get cross trained despite how many areas there are to potentially grow.

This is due to very weak management that is generally comprised of former contractors/yard employees who are only in said position of authority due to their tenure at the company.

Very few professionally trained people who are generally too preoccupied to help you.

HR isn't present at a lot of locations

Be prepared to have a competitive wage at the start and then never go up beyond general increases in minimum wage/not at all.

You will learn quickly that the talented hard working employees are kept at the bottom and are at the heart of the lack of growth and high turnover.

Slegg can be good to you for interm work or as a first job. But beyond that, you will be verbally abused and/or taken advantage of until they can get another replacement.

Good benefits, Slow potential to advance
Transfer and Shipment Organizer (Ancien employé) –  Nanaimo, BC4 mars 2019
Business for a building materials supplier slows down during the winter, meaning managers only want enough people employed to run during the slowest time of the year. This means when you fill a certain role, management wants you there as long as possible.

Check facts before accepting position.
Office Worker (Ancien employé) –  Sidney, BC25 février 2019
Ask yourself "why is there such a great turnover at Slegg?" If you look on media such as Facebook, Linkedin, etc you can check to see who worked there and follow up with them on their experiences.
I am most confident people will tell you their experience and then you can make the decision to accept or decline. Be informed?

Good job if your not soft.
Forklift Operator/Order Picker (Employé actuel) –  Langford, BC9 février 2019
Decent place to work. Hard work though, and you must do it all outside in all weather conditions. The customers are always fun to work with and find out what projects they are working on and help them find the materials they need to complete their projects.

The pay is on par with the rest of the island. If you come in with little to no experience expect to be paid accordingly. But as you learn more you will get paid more, and there is a lot to learn.

The benefits plan is really good if you can pass the 18 months required for full benefits, but you'll get a smaller version of the benefits after 3 months, plus monthly company provided food days (bbq of some kind or pizza) not to mention many different discounts at random places on Vancouver Island, food trucks roll in as well, and of course an employee discount and uniform (shirt / hats).

There is very high employee turnover here though. I've found so far that out of the 20 (made up number) people that started working there since last year, 18 of them quit due to weather or hard work, Yes most left on their own, and all with different random reasons.

The training provided by other staff members is adequate enough, but you will really have to pick up a lot of knowledge on your own about the products and services provided at Sleggs, for which they have online learning programs free to employee's. You can also ask some of the more senior staff, they have good solid knowledge as well. But if you don't ask or can't find the information for yourself, your left to your own demise. They can show you the way, but it's up to
  plus... you to fine tune that knowledge. (I can show you where 5/8 OSB is, but it's up to you to find out what the customer will most likely use it for).

During the construction season (year round here pretty much) you can expect your full hours plus a lot of overtime, but of course, expect down time come winter as many construction sites will shut down or move to more indoor projects.

Overall I would say I enjoy working at Sleggs, and as long as I am still employed there by the time you read this (internet can host some very old information sometimes) the information I've posted here is as accurate and true as I can make it. For the Langford location at least.

Cheers, good luck on your job hunt, hope to see you soon.

Average Company, Great Potential
Employee (Employé actuel) –  British Columbia12 juillet 2018
Slegg is an average company to work for. Depending on your position within the company you are either given a ton of training or told to "sink or swim". This company was bought out a few years ago. So they are still relatively "green". Their upper management says they are working on improving morale, but they are slow moving with this. The company needs to realize that they cannot change everything overnight.

It will take time, and if they want all of the "upgrades" to stick and be accepted, they need to find a way to ensure buy-in from the employees and STOP treating the employees as if they are expendable. Treating employees as expendable causes morale to decrease and increase the turnover rate.

This company has the potential to become amazing, they just need to find a way to have everyone on board and have them feel as though they matter.

Not a good company to work for
Sales Associate (Ancien employé) –  Langford, BC1 juin 2018
I was an employee here for a very long time and was not treated fairly. The staff and co-workers were great but things slowly went down hill. Leaving there was the best desicion I have ever made! I don't recommend this place at all.

False advertising
Sales Associate (Ancien employé) –  Langford, BC13 mars 2018
Slegg's management promotes such great opportunity while interviewing with them and during your initial beginnings with them. You very quickly learn how toxic of an environment it truly is. Training is limited, you're more or less expected to sink or swim.Turn over is crazy. Someone is always quitting or being fired. Morale is very low among staff which doesn't appear to be of concern to management. Customers continuously complain how bad the service is since WSB Titan has taken over. It is very unfortunate as Slegg used to be a name known for its customer service, quality products and a great place to consider for employment.

Diverse
Forklift and Skid Steer Operator (Ancien employé) –  Langford, BC25 octobre 2017
Customer service is never an easy job, however this job did not have great management, they do not obtain the ability to treat staff well enough for them to stick around long. If staff was treated better by the company then there would be a much smaller turn over rate and they wouldn't end up with the issue of new people training even newer staff members.

Management/HR/Executives-lack of professionalism.
Executive (Ancien employé) –  Victoria, BC4 octobre 2017
This is truly a bad place to work.
There is no other way to describe how toxic of a workplace this is.
Executives gossip, HR feeds into this all and there is ZERO structure in the entire workplace.

Look at the ads posted every week for help, there is a reason NO ONE stays at the new Sleggs that is owned by WSB Titan.
Executives need a lesson in etiquette and how to not gossip.

Worst workplace ever
Sales (Ancien employé) –  Victoria, BC19 avril 2017
Terribly toxic environment. New ownership has killed what was once a workplace of great pride. Customers are unhappy and the staff are dropping like flies. Too many managers with limited knowledge and inflated egos trying to run a bare bones staffed company. Promises were reneged, therefore staff are very hurt and looking to leave if they can.
Points positifs
Staff discount on lumber
Points négatifs
The atmosphere is that of sheer dread

I highly advise against it
Employee (Ancien employé) –  Langford, BC10 novembre 2016
Sleggs used to be a great place to work , before the new ownership took over, now they are just a corporate company that gives little respect to the people trying to do their jobs ,don't expect much from here , you won't get it , nothing you do is ever good enough , and they are always changing how they do things, , most people that start , get out once they see for themselves . It Used to be filled with knowledgable staff that actually knew what they were talking about now its anyone they can pay min wage to ,

Some good friends

Coworkers were great except for a few - worst management/owners I've ever worked for.
cycle counter (Ancien employé) –  Sidney, BC5 novembre 2016
Absolutely disgusted with this company. Slegg USED to be one of the best places on the island to work but since it was bought out by WSB Titan...it has gone completely downhill. These people could care less about their employees. To give you an idea of how these people operate their business, I was just recently laid off from this company....without cause!!!!!!!!.....and 3 days later there was a posting on here and on their website for my old job ..in the same store. Think long and hard....would you want to work for a company like that???

Local Successful Business
Rebuyer (Ancien employé) –  Comox, BC12 août 2016
Good work environment. Positive, hard working staff. Customers like the local atmosphere. It's the only lumber yard in Comox which brings in a lot of walk in and contract customers.

Company on the move
Corporate Manager (Ancien employé) –  Sidney, BC18 décembre 2015
Slegg building Materials is quickly developing the infrastructure to support long term stable growth. They are working very hard to cultivate current talent and bring in the very best across the country to improve this business. I look to sledge to continue its dominance on the island!
