How are career development opportunities at Uni-Select?

Pros

The company has a lot of opportunities for sideways promotions. The work is easy enough, the job is fairly secure.

Cons

Safety regulations are usually not a top priority, getting orders picked was the top priority. They usually hire many temp workers with promises of full-time work, but I have yet to see a part time worker hired on full time. In the year I was there.

Advice to Management

Slow down, listen, and be aware. Most issues were seen and discussed by employees and supervisors before they became problems. Fullfil your promises to employees, temp or not, or change the promise. If you promise consistent contracts and work. That is usually enough, don't discourage people by misleading them. It leads me to spend most of my time fixing problems caused by disgruntled temp workers. Its not fair to them, and it hinders productivity.
