Not for everybody

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
Depending on where you placed this could be the best job for you or the worse also depending on who you are, it is NOT for everyone. It is an experience and you get to see some of the best places in the arctic or northern canada, and can meet the people who live there, that being said it is northern canada and has its challenges, you will not get the same services as you would anywhere else, you will work for the only place that provides goods for a community and that is limited.

Points positifs

Housing and food provided, along with plane tickets

Points négatifs

No staff at times, harsh climate, little services

toxic people

i worked fot the northwest company for over 10 years and was so glad to leave.if you like lifting boxes up to 100 lbs all day with no end in sight apply here. management promotes the lazy weak people and and keeps the hard workers right where they want them working in cold coolers picking orders non stop. office staff and the receptionist at Crescent multi foods "a division of the north west co" make the same wage as the guys who break their back day in and day out. don't work here and settle and be miserable like the rest of them. life it too short to spent a third of your life with a bunch of miserable toxic co workers.

Points positifs

ok pay

Points négatifs

everything

Hectic and tedious work space

I can be very easy on a slow day or very busy, nothing exciting. Just your regular store, a little old with some modern equipment. The managers can be annoying, and it gets cold in winter

Points positifs

Depending on your position, free lunch. Staff discount on some items. Certain staff can buy food with their work card.

Points négatifs

Long hours, spotty staff. Unstable weather in winter. Calls in to work.

Zero training, Unclear direction, Lots of meetings with very little accomplished, Upper Management doesn't listen, Minimal work life balance

There are a great deal of positives working for the North West Company offices in Winnipeg. The compensation package has been excellent, as have my bonuses. There are some fantastic people working in the trenches. NWC has evolved a great deal over the past years as many external hires have been brought on for positions, often in cases where no job posting was put forth for internal candidates. Further, when starting a new role no training is provided, or very little resource. Everybody is very busy, so often you need to figure things out for yourself. Senior management often say one thing, then do another all together. Many of the VPs just have a fixed mindset and shut down those that have other solutions. The business is very top heavy. Lots of VPs, EVPs, etc. Each one of them protects their "empire". The VPs management styles have divided the business into silos. (Even though Sr. Management is in denial). Cross-department Collaboration has improved greatly over the past years, mostly due to the efforts of middle management. If senior management would back off sometimes the efforts of their teams would actually create a more harmonious work environment.There are a lot of meetings that happen in the NWC. The culture surrounding meetings in the company is frustrating. Many times people schedule meetings with people without looking at stakeholders calendars. It is not unheard of to be triple, or quadruple booked for meetings throughout the course of the day. People arrive late to meetings, so often they don't start early or end late. Meeting rooms often - 

Points positifs

Fantastic store locations, Great people employed.

Points négatifs

Little work/life balance. No training. Numerous "restructures", Top Heavy

Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate all your hard work with The North West Company, please feel free to reach out to our HR Department to discuss any concerns you may have.

A great career opportunity with some challenges.

Great company to gain valuable work experience. Areas of concern include Corporate culture and the intricacies of the northern remote lifestyle. Good opportunity to see remote parts of Canada that most Canadians will never see. I extend a caveat surrounding the issolation experienced in the remote communities we serve and the culture shock that exists. This is an area of concern for those who are accustomed to living in large urban centers.

Points positifs

Great opportunity to experience a diversity of cultures across remote northern Canada.

Points négatifs

Corporate culture is misleading, people are treated like commodities with little focus on personal or family needs.

Pay is decent as are the bonuses

Horrible customers with no respect, death threats, zero life. Work, home, work, home. If you're single with no kids you're constantly being transferred! And I mean CONSTANTLY!! Cant create a life if you wanted to due to being relocated all the time.

Points positifs

Decent money

Points négatifs

Customers and staff being completely unreliable

Stressful work environment - unable to speak freely

Too many people giving directives and not enough support. Some managers were vague and difficult to communicate with and concerns are not addressed formally, management reactions are mostly aggressive and demeaning. Resolutions are directives instead of suggesting best practices.

Customer Service Representative

This title is not justified for the amount of work you are required to do. You are more than a customer service representative but the company refuses to acknowledge this in order to categorize your title on a pay scale.

A unique pharmacist opportunity

Great place to work as a pharmacist in a unique role, helping people in BC via telehealth with their healthcare questions. Nice to have the luxury of time to spend with callers helping them to better understand their medications. Always supported by the company when process or technology changes are implemented and for continuing education opportunities.

Positive and Supportive Office Environment

I have had a positive experience so far working as an office staff member. I have found my team to be very encouraging and supportive with helping me learn about the business and how I can be successful in my role. I have also found the company to be very accommodating with the work from home situation during the current pandemic.

"The North West Company is happy to have been able to be a part of your personal and professional growth. We hope we can continue to contribute to those areas in the future. "

The best part of the job

The best part of the job is working with co-workers and having fun while still being able to get the job done in an eight hour shift. Working together as a team is also very rewarding and fulfilling and it is always nice to be able to leave at the end of the day with a great sense of purpose.

Benefits and downsides of working at nwc

The experience is great and there is opportunity to learn more. The downsides however are that there is very minimal opportunity to progress if you are looking to expand or go higher in your career and the turn over is high.

Head Office

The North West Company has been a good experience so far. It's not perfect but the team I'm with is very proactive, supportive, and accommodating. There is amply opportunity for growth and trying new things. Unfortunately we are understaffed and our processes could be updated, but generally, this is a good place to work if you're in management. Like the rest of the company, we are remote to our customers and have to work with and through store staff. This is even more challenging under pandemic conditions and limited travel. Large credit needs to go to the frontline staff that we have been able to operate at the level we do. In general, flexibility, creativity, and ability to work under pressure is what to expect if you consider TNWC as a potential employer. Lastly, Winnipeg is a nice little city which is easy to get around especially for cycling - even in winter. But be aware that it really is two cities - the North End and the rest of Winnipeg.
