    I have been working at Sid Wainer & Son full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is plenty of room for advancement , the pay structure has improved , the company is investing in its work force through incentives, training and employee appreciation, plus there is a new facility on the way which will help the staff work smarter not harder.

    Cons

    What I consider pros some would consider cons. It can be long hours in a cold environment but I enjoy a challenge. Admittedly it is not for everyone , but if you enjoy a challenge and want to be recognized for your hard work this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the improvements going that have been seen over the past 5 years or so. It has become a much better place to work. I now feel I can definitely recommend to a friend or family member.

    I have been working at Sid Wainer & Son full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a company where you can succeed through hard work and dedication. There are many long term employees here and, with few exceptions, all of the leadership and management positions from Lead to Senior Vice President were filled and promoted from within. Myself personally, I started as part-time and advanced to a high level management position within four years. The owners of the company and senior management (as well the entire management team) are committed to making this company the number one place of employment on the South Coast in terms of the employee experience which is evidenced by the huge investments they are making in people and property. Just drive by and look at the construction going on and see for yourself.

    Cons

    The cold environment in the warehouse is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the path we are on and ensure that all employees are aware of our goals and we will all work together to achieve those goals.

    I have been working at Sid Wainer & Son (More than a year)

    Pros

    The greatest part of Sid Wainer & Son is their hard working employees. Aside from that, well, there’s lots opportunities for growth, definitely and if you work hard and show your potential, you will get noticed. Also, great about this company is that they are a training company. Meaning that they will provide you with training to make you more skilled in areas you feel the need to improve.

    Cons

    Employees work weekends and holidays. Over time is mandatory and starting pay could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that every employee adds value to the organization, so my honest suggestion to our management team is to continue to listen to your employees, supporting them and providing an atmosphere and structure in which they can strive because they are the fuel that runs your engine.
