    I have been working at Uni-Select full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lot's of knowledgeable, dedicated, and competent employees.

    Cons

    Tumultuous time for the company with no CEO, seeking strategic alternatives, and little communication from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    Work on gaining the trust of the majority employee base. Many are unsure of the company identity, the path we're on, and middle managers don't have the answers for questions employees are asking.

  3. "Worked at Calgary, AB warehous"

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Uni-Select full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to get an entry level job if you're just out of high school and need to work. Pay is what you would expect for an entry level warehouse labour job.

    Cons

    Hard to get hired as officially full-time, they will employ you full time and have you work 40 hours a week so they don't have to offer benefits. Could be different by now but that was how things were when I was there. I didn't care because I didn't want the premiums coming off my paycheque.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to hwat the employees have to say and their opinions.

    Great people, stimulating projects and opportunities for career development and advancement.

    I have been working at Uni-Select full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people. Good pay. Great discounts on car parts. I am not unhappy here, we are not micro managed in my dept.

    Cons

    Old-school way of running things. Strict hours. No flexibility. As a younger employee, I am behind a computer in a cubicle and this is now where I'd rather be.

    Advice to Management

    We need some more flexibility. To keep your employees, you will need to evolve your way of thinking towards a more 2018 way of running a company.

    Passion is not trickled down to lower management and employees

    Impose vision and make sure all adhere to the "One team" approach.
