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

    Pros

    No pro this company sucks I rather go somewhere else don't waste your time.Nelda is the worst manager that I know.

    Cons

    Do not work for nelda she will change moods every minute if anything listen to somebody else,and when raises for the employees come around they forget about all the good you did for the company while the managers get bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers from within,they rather hire somebody that doesn't know where parts are located or how the warehouse works,this is why people always quit,especially on nelda's team.

    I worked at Uni-Select (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good hours and great customers.

    Cons

    You work your butt off because your always short handed. The managers don't appreciate anything you do. The salesman and the Manager do nothing then corporate blames the asst. Manager and everyone else for not getting new accounts. Then they lay you off after being the 14 years knowing your a single parent of 2. They make you work all day then lay you off at 5 on Friday at the end of the month. And if your a woman in this company you will get paid much less than a man will.

    Advice to Management

    When you have someone who worked their butt off for your company and stuck through everything when everyone was leaving and they stayed and did the manager's job for months at a time without being paid for it. You let go of the wrong person.

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

    Pros

    Many DC's to draw stock from. Some +'s with their POS system. Great foreign nameplate coverage by owning Beck/Arnley.

    Cons

    More concerned with complicating their corporate structure than providing their employees the tools and motivation to do what they're paid to do. VERY investor driven. Wage increases are meager at best. Constantly adds new and expensive layers to corporate hierarchy, while whittling away store level employee hours to compensate. More regional/district/general/middle managers than counterpeople. And Richard Roy, who is also Independent Director of Dollarama Inc. Maybe a strategic merger is in the works? 3 pack of foil cake pans with my brake pads please!

    Advice to Management

    NEED MORE MANAGEMENT!!! Perhaps remove ALL store level employees and hire a few dozen MORE executives.

    I have been working at Uni-Select full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The good people that I have made friends with.

    Cons

    New COO is a hatchet man. Cut 450 jobs and the stock went up, what a hero. Management grills sales people with weekly conference calls where everyone gets called on the carpet. Reports and more reports. Cut wages, insurance, car plan, etc. And why do I still work here? Moral is worse than a POW camp. Employees at all levels hate this company and are bailing out of this sinking ship. Cut, cut, cut and more cuts. This company will work you to death, pay you little, steal your confidence and then kick you to the curb. Heartless and ruthless.

    Advice to Management

    Canadians - We know you hate the U.S. Operation so sell it already. If you can. This company was a nice one to work for when the family owned it and you have run it aground. You must change the brutal culture here and treat people like human beings. If not, this ship will sink in short order.

    Pros

    Not much good to say only that its a pay check. the spiff's that vendor's offer to the counter person is very nice at least they appreciate what you do for them.

    Cons

    Customer service doesn't seem like it exists anymore all corporate management cares about is gross profit and to do more with less. part time help no more than 25 hours a week. Full time only 40 hours and if you work past it they alter your time so it is only 40 hours. God forbid your helping a customer and work 15 minutes overtime and make a nice sale they would rather you not take care of the customer.

    Advice to Management

    get out from behind the desk and work out in the field and see what it is really like. Not everything that you see on paper works in the real world. Take care of your employee's better show them you care not treat them like they are all replaceable.
