    Pros

    Great place to work. Management treats people well. Pay is good. Pension plan. Great people who want to learn and help teach.

    Cons

    Can't think of a lot. The plant is hot in the summer. There is not a lot of parking on there grounds. Washrooms could use an update and regular cleaning.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. It is a pleasure to be working for Price Industries. I hope to work here for many years.

    I worked at Price Industries full-time

    Pros

    Challenging and rewarding work. Lots of opportunity to gain experience. Opportunity to move around to different areas and form your career path.

    Cons

    More managers than employees. Managers who make engineering and technical decisions despite having zero knowledge in those areas. Very poor pay compared to other employers. Toxic work environment created by managers. You are forced you to work an exessive amount of overtime without pay. Management has beyond unrealistic expectations and deadlines creating such a stressful work environment to the point it takes a toll on your health. Lots of extremely arrogant and downright ignorant co workers. More focus on throwing people under the bus than working together to find solutions to issues. Managment will not listen to employees and make poor decisions again and again.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and treat them human being rather than items. Be more competitive will pay otherwise any talent that you do hire will move on. Need to incorporate more people with technical backgrounds into management so realistic goals can be set. Focus on the work environment you create. Just look at the turnover rate in several areas.

    I have been working at Price Industries full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company is full of great, hard-working, driven people. The company is fairly young so there are a lot of people willing to learn and adapt.

    Cons

    The pay/benefits is mediocre to poor. The same driven people can sometimes cause other employees to overwork themselves and burn out. There are some positions that are set up to fail. Depending on the department, management can be old school and strict.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to spend money on your people. Good employees are worth it. Flexibility in positions that allow it will draw people in. Great work on keeping culture positive.

    I worked at Price Industries full-time

    Pros

    Young members and energetic.

    Family environment.

    Cons

    Poor management decisions.

    They do not follow their own direction that they said they want to follow.

    They rarely replace employees that quit. Teams go down from 7 to 3 members with the same work load.

    No overtime but you are expected to work through lunch and stay late on daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your employees.
    You have to take the risk that an employee might leave after you have spent time and money training them.

    I worked at Price Industries (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working inside of the warehouse was great! They worked with me while I pursued my education. They will give anyone who wants the opportunity the chance to move up in the warehouse. Paid holidays were a plus!

    Cons

    Does get hot during the day, however when I was leaving they were working on ways to improve the conditions.

    I worked at Price Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    An industry leader in air terminal products. Divisions in Canada and the U.S. Jerry Price is a dynamic, albeit aging, public speaker.

    Cons

    Management where I was is at best nepotistic and complacent. Fail to reach out a positive yet strong hand to sales force. Hence, the disinclination of successful and knowledgeable sales professionals to represent this particular product. Don't encourage talent nor manifest it in product development. High employee turnover.
