Positive, Rewarding, Family Oriented

It's what you make it here, if you put in the hours and hard work, you'll be rewarded with a great pay and a long career. NO SLACKERS ALLOWED!!! The people that end up leaving disgruntled bring it on them selves and have poor attitudes. Respect, a good attitude, and hard work with a side of hustle will get you a long way! There are times when its all hands on deck and it can be stressful, but it helps build the team mindset and can feel like a victory. There's a lot of money on the line in repairs, fabrication, and getting parts and machines to the customers so in those moments its intense but understandable. Soft hands and a sad face doesn't work in this industry.

Pros

Great Benefits, Paid Holidays, Lots of inside perks.

Cons

Stay Clear of Sy Harrison

Terrible

I was 16 when I started working here and I was 16 when I quit. Goodfellows Inc offers zero job security and the management has no respect for their employees. Proper safety gear was never offered.

Management cares very little of their employees. Terrible working conditions outside all day. Wild animals roaming in warehouse smell of animal feces

One of the worst employers I have worked for. No regard for employees. No support for claiming benefits. Hr should be fired for lack of employee support. Waited for months for disability payment. Hr would not file disability paperwork to insurance. Management only takes care of themselves. Employees are the only thing that is good with such a poorly run business. Mistry of labour should shut it down.

Pros

Great employees trying to earn a buck

Cons

Poor management, no support for employees

Small office environment

Small office, tight knit environment. Upper management is not located in the US so that makes things very difficult to make lasting changes that will impact future of the business. Just stick your head down and do the job they ask. Limited opportunities for promotion within the business. Great healthcare, 401k match, pto, and flexible working hours.

Bonne entreprise avec esprit d'équipe dynamique

Mon expérience de travail a été enrichissante et diversifiée. J'ai perfectionné mon anglais avec les collègues à l'extérieur du Québec. Il faut savoir s'ajuster au roulement de travail plus élevé lors des changements de saisons et être bien organisé pour le surplus de travail en certaine période de l'année.

Good

Freight and Customs: 1. Deliveries 2. Collections Stores: 1. Stock Control Admin duties: 1. admin duties when required Company had been through a downsizing period. Job security was always on one's mind. However, before this working in the environment was good. Staff worked well together. In my years at the company, I have learnt a lot. My reliability and punctuality is something I am extremely proud of.
