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

    Pros

    Solid Teamwork for the most part but we are a new warehouse and we are told the only one of it's the only one of it's kind.

    Cons

    This company is too concerned with keeping part time staffers from getting more than 25 hrs and full time from getting more than 40. Nine new stores have been added since we opened for business but we are actually expected to meet the delivery schedule with fewer employees than we started with.

    Advice to Management

    Stop Micro managing and get out of the way, trust your experienced staff to set the example and bring new hires up to speed. It will boost morale and and enhance teamwork.

    I worked at Uni-Select full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Uniselect provided me with an opportunity to gain industry experience. Local control of operation has helped grow this company over time. Many employees were good people with tremendous experience.

    Cons

    New SAP platform has severely challenged morale and stability. Board has changed leadership way too frequently, seemingly blaming them for performance.

    Advice to Management

    It was not your employees fault that operations have deteriorated. Your system (SAP) is seriously flawed. Be honest with employees, firing several hundred people and calling it unlocking shareholder value is absurd.
