    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Purolator International full-time

    Pros

    Great Insurance. Smart sales team and decent pay. Very knowledgable about Canada. Girls in office are mostly pleasant.

    Cons

    No Sense of Urgency Culture here. Antiquated Technology. Short sighted managers that are always defensive. . Lacks innovation because they focus on rigid sales processes. Projects are left untouched or to disintegrate should you take a few weeks off. Girls in office can also be two faced. Can be uncomfortable.

    I worked at Purolator International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are no pros for a hard, caring worker. The pros are for those that whine. If you are a whine they will cater to you and get you everything you want.

    Cons

    TSD group is the worst group. This group has the most problems. They seem to whine about everything, everyone at every opportunity. I have dealt with such grown children. There is also a huge lack of training and organization. There is no respect for management.

    Pros

    Benefits are adequate. Pay is bearable

    Cons

    You feel like you are in a black and white movie. Behind the times by 75 years. Management needs to be put out to pasture. No innovation or incentive to be innovated.

    Pros

    The brand name in Canada

    Cons

    Not to be trusted - they say one thing, the opposite it true. Pay is below standard, work/life balance is not respected. President is completely detached from reality, the market place, modern employment practices and respectful way of treating employees. Do not listen to the false statements they give you in the interview, you will quickly come to see reality and it's not pleasant at all.
