QUICK STOP MANAGER (Ancien employé) –  Pond Inlet, NU14 août 2019
Work 24/7 365 days for people too lazy to help themselves. Corporate could care less as long as they make their bonus. Some communities are nice and others hate outsiders.

Fun and growing corporation
PROJECT COORDINATOR (Employé actuel) –  Winnipeg, MB7 août 2019
A typical day at work involves scheduling and the facilitation of multiple meetings. I gained knowledge in the logistics and transportation sector. The management is well educated and structured in a way that embraces an "open door" culture. The hardest part of the job is managing projects by priority. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people.
Points positifs
BBQ's and draws
Points négatifs
Nothing

Be warned
Supervisor/Manager (Employé actuel) –  Quebec Province4 août 2019
NWC sugar coats the entire hiring process. They tell you that you will make so much money... no rent...no food expenses... Well, that's is true, to a certain extent. It is added on to your pay as taxable income and you don't get much back at the end of the tax year.. So because your gross income is so much, you are taxed so much.

Another point: if you aren't working at the moment, you will be.

Expect very long hours. High turnover rate for regular part time and full time employees. Nobody shows up on time. Be expected to work short staffed and do the work of 4 people.

Mental health wise, you really should reconsider it if you have some issues. You will be alone. You will be homesick. You will be sad.

Health services is very scarce and most of the time in the communities, they only will see you if it is an emergency only. If you are not a local or a band beneficiary, you will not be able to see the physician or dentist.

If you do make a request to the company for something, expect a very long delay in getting an answer. And also expect to get a vague, probably diverted answer.

The workplace is also a major factor in this. What a lot of people do not realize, is that a lot of the more mature management with the company have substance abuse issues (i.e. alcoholism). This company disregards its employees and does not have any trust in them when they are in need of medical services or for personal reasons.


The good things about working with NWC is that you will make money. If you are SINGLE, NO CHILDREN OR DEPENDENTS, ARE OKAY WITH BEING
  plus... SEPARATED FROM FAMILY, AND ARE OKAY WITH HAVING LITTLE TO NO SOCIAL LIFE, this is a job for you.


Good luck to you all...

Signed, an employee who is trying to get out...

Disappointing Senior Executive Team
Vice President (Ancien employé) –  Winnipeg, MB31 mai 2019
There is a lack of diversity and innovation at the highest levels. The same few Executives make all the decisions. Turnover is very high at this company. New leadership could really make a difference.

Capitalizing off of the oppression, marginalization and systemic poverty in First Nation communities.
Customer Service Representative (Ancien employé) –  Winnipeg, MB24 février 2019
I worked at NorthWest for a year and hated being there. I learned very quickly that the company does not care about their customer base in northern communities.

Funny thing is that HBC owns the NorthWest company, so historically 'business as usual'.
Points positifs
Fitness centre in the basement, Nice cafeteria
Points négatifs
Contributing to the plight of marginalized populations

They use people
grocery selector (Ancien employé) –  Winnipeg, MB3 février 2019
Supervisors and coworkers are nice, it would be a good place to work if management wasn't ruthless about cutting man-hours to save money.
You're lucking to get more than 30 hours a week but they're still going to expect you to be available for 40. They have a revolving door policy, they're always hiring because they can't get people to stay.
Points positifs
none

I'd always be busy doing tasks, all the while, connecting with the staff. I learned how to tag, and mark merchandise. I learned perseverance and how to talk to people.

Great way to experience Canada but it'll cost you
Supervisor (Ancien employé) –  Northern Canada4 septembre 2018
I spent 4 years with this company in a lower management role, and while it was a great opportunity to experience northern remote locations of Canada, I worked like a dog - often 50+ hours a week with no additional compensation. Housing and a food subsidy are provided but in turn you basically earn minimum wage. I also made very little pension while with the company. This company has a terrible reputation with many communities. I have seen 400-600% markups in pricing, received inferior quality freight for stock and the only thing this company cares about is profits at the local communities' expense. I compare it to working on a cruise ship. If you are young, adventurous and have no assets then you can use this opportunity to your advantage.

Stay away..
Managed (Ancien employé) –  northet sask.4 septembre 2018
.....I interviewed with these clowns- not only did I laugh at their offer but I will never shop in their filthy stores!
.....the HR department are a joke and management are very weak - would never survive in a mainstream grocery environment. The only reason the exist is they have overpriced stores in remote locations! They rip off people who have no other choice!

STAY AWAY!

Mental preparation an asset
Food Service Manager (Ancien employé) –  Moosonee, ON30 août 2018
I worked for the North West Company for 6 straight years. I was fortunate enough to be assigned a location with very little issues. Working overtime for me was not much of an issue as I felt a lot more could be accomplished after hours. My overall opinion is it would be a great place to work for anyone single who had good work ethic and could deal with a lot of unforeseen issues.
Points positifs
Sign in card for management that could be used as a grocery subsidy.
Points négatifs
Massive challenges in getting in parts and labour.
