Order picking gets repetitive and tedious.
Order Picker (Ancien employé) –  Halton Hills, ON27 juillet 2019
This is a good place to work if you have the patience and attention span to drive a Crown order picker up and down a warren of aisles stopping every few feet to rise up to a cell (location on the racks) and count and pick product and build skids. Some of the product you will have to shuffle onto your skid include 75-pound full toilets, and 20-30-lb. blind flanges made of solid steel.

The management is decent, willing to accommodate, and easy to get along with so long as you're not lazy or insolent. The crew is very nice, and I miss working with them. They're a good bunch.

Because the ratio of pickers to lead hands is approximately 40:1 on any given shift, chances for advancement are very rare. They only happen when a lead hand quits or goes on leave. The management never turns over, which is a good thing in a way, but you can forget about moving up for the most part. This is more a job for people who want to make a straight wage. There are generally occasional opportunities to make a lateral move, a.k.a. moving from one shift to another, but with no aggregate increase in wage.

The wage, I believe, is decent for the work you are required to do. You must not be afraid of heights. You must be willing to wear a fall-arrest harness and be linked to a lanyard for your whole shift (save one of your two twenty-minute breaks in an 8-hour period).

In sum, this is another job that not everyone can fit into, but it is relatively simple, requires little skill, and work is abundant, often with options of up to four hours daily overtime.
Points positifs
Barbecue once a month, generously supplied by management. Unionized environment, if you're into that sort of thing. Managers are good listeners to your concerns, and generally stay on top of the job quite well. Professional HR department.
Points négatifs
Can get tedious due to lack of skill needed, Very repetitive, Counting all day can get on your nerves, Must start on nights or afternoons until a vacancy opens in the day.

Stay away.
Manager (Employé actuel) –  Finance8 juillet 2019
Poor senior leadership from the top down. High turnover for a reason. This place is just falling apart- quickly. Not doing well and very unpleasant- not doing well? Cut more jobs. Don't like what somebody is saying? Cut their job or close their location. Nothing good to say about this place except location may work for you or you may enjoy the location you are at if it is far from corporate office.

A career disappointment....
Inventory Planner (Ancien employé) –  Burlington, ON1 avril 2019
Was hired as an inventory planner at this company. Most of the people there were very nice, but they had a mass exodus of people in a short period of time and that told me a lot about the company! Training there is fend-for-yourself, with no plan, no job aids and no direction from the team manager. Once onboard, the hours can be very long. From a technology standpoint, they have been taking about upgrading their ERP system for years and have yet to do it. Imagine using technology from the late 80's!

I would urge anyone considering a role here to keep moving and look at better companies.
Points positifs
Nice people and helpful
Points négatifs
Long hours, ancient technology

Good Monday to Friday Job
Shipper/Receiver and Delivery Driver (Ancien employé) –  Hamilto14 mars 2019
Nice for a balanced schedule.
But room to move up is slim and you have to not be good be too valuable at your current position to have a shot to move up or around otherwise they want you to stay where you are
Points positifs
Stable, easy to predict hours
Points négatifs
Not all Managers are created equally. Room to move up is good if your not great at your job

Poor management
Return Clerk (Employé actuel) –  Laval, QC24 février 2019
Unfortunately all the extra that you do is not noticed. Way too much work for the amount of people there and many people have gone on burnout because of it. With better management, the company could flourish.

Productive and fun company to work for.
Shipper/Reciever (Ancien employé) –  West Edmonton Mall, AB14 janvier 2019
It was pretty straight forward. I was either unloading or loading skids, or trailers. Lifting 50lbs a day. Co-workers were nice. And overall a good compyan to work for. The hardest part of the job was when a forklifter did not put his item in the right location, and everyones caught up in there own duties its sometimes hard to get help but once u memorize the items its easy.
Points positifs
Kitchen in the staff room.
Points négatifs
long hours.
