    Pros

    They are a good company to start with. They motivate and work with you to reach your goals, as long as they too share those goals. Follow the rules and you are fine.

    Cons

    Movement from one department to another is difficult. Hours shifts a lot which is hard with families.

    Good management.

    I have been working at Transcontinental full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The paying is good, lots of overtime, and good benefits.

    Cons

    Unfair treatment to the Employees, no appreciation for hardwork, bottom line the Boss have a favoritism especially in Markham Area, and the Bosses and Supervisor
     are crueless.

    Advice to Management

    I hope the Management in Quebec will send someone in Markham Area to investigate or ask each employees how they treat people especially the Supervisor in the morning she is so rude and no respect to the workers.And I hope they will do it anonymous because the employees are scared.

    I have been working at Transcontinental full-time

    Pros

    I'm amazed at the breadth of products and services that TC Transcontinental offers. You really have to be either a competitor or a client to know what TC does. Even then, you wouldn't know how huge and diverse this company is. Only when I started working at TC that I realized the gigantic footprint of the company in Canada. Workwise, I really like the culture and management. The people are smart and sharp. I feel challenged everyday and I'm learning so much.

    Cons

    I'm surprised that many people don't know the company that well despite all the brands we own and the services we provide. Understandably TC is mostly B2B and not B2C. I find I have to explain to friends, family and acquaintance what TC does. I don't mind though, I'm proud of working at TC.
