    Why don't you hire guys who have university a degree then? Afraid you will lose your management job because you are a high school dropout?

    I find the comments on this thread a joke.

    What I mean is that most companies will do anything to screw people around.

    Why do you think that management "hires" temp staff. So they can treat them like shit and get bonuses at the end of the year. For looking like they keep costs down. Oh yeah. Did I mention that the management can also look prolific in their treatment of staff. but let 's not ask the temps.

    I have to go right ahead and say that they must be consistent in their management of stores and warehouses. The supervisors and management in the retail stores have about two brain cells to rub together

    Just one last thing. Who is questioning the invoices? Considering they lack the ability to retain staff. Is it any wonder why the invoices seem funny. Management decided to hire temps

    Cool Re: Exploited Workers At Brampton Distribution Centre

    For anybody who reads this website keep posting it because upper management is reading these posts everyday. In fact, they have tried to close this website and actually tried to convince the Judge that the word "crappy tire" and "canadian Tire" are the same and the judge says something like I never knew the word Canadian and crappy were synonomous.

    Anyways, for anyone going through the frustrations of working at CTC in Brampton, ON you are reading the thoughts of CTC AJ Billes Distribution center's most despised shipper. Let me tell you how much they fear me - one day I was with my ex g/f at DQ and i seen one of my old managers getting ice cream with his kids after the kids played hockey. When i seen him leave I left my g/f got this person's attention and he rushed the kids in the minivan, piut it in reverse and squealed it out of the parking lot. Of course i had to hear a mouthfull from the ex but it was well worth it.

    Another time i seen some full timers in rexdale and as they were walking towards me both F/t employees pinned their backs to the wall to wait for me to pass - they literally wet their pants.

    I don't care how bad you think it is at CTC it can't be worse than the following:

    Have you had your coat pocket picked to have "loss prevention" sift through the lint in your coat pocket to determine if there was any weed so they had an excuse to fire you and not pay your bonuses before the deadline ? i have had it done to me personally!!

    Were you ever searched without cause on your way inside to see if you stole anything ?? yup that too

    Have you had your managers use a stop watch to time your breaks ? have you ever had a manager use a stop watch to time how long you have stayed in the bathroom ?? i seen it done.....

    This is a true Story: have you ever been fired for a taking a Black Crayola marker out of a tote? well it's true, crappy tire couldn't prove that it was stolen since he said that the took it from his kid so he sued them and made a small fortune. All i can tell you is that it was a full-timer over 10 years ago.

    here's another one: full timer injures himself on Tuesday, stays home on Wednesday with pay and shows up on Thursday morning and gets fired. he made a bundle off that severance deal

    How about this one: student gets injured and the modified duties form basically said he couldn't lift his penis to take a leak so they leave him at home and they send him mail to stamp from home. The father of this part timer requests rental fee of $80.00 per day that CTC did not agree to pay so they send him around the warehouse to do a 10 hr shift of posting emergency phone numbers on each phone. just leave the guy at home with pay.

    6 weeks after the spring bonus this same student was almost arrested for attempted bomb threats but this student was smart, he called his lawyer right in front of 5 people, one of the HR managers realized tat he was calling his lawyer and loss prevention guy took his cell phone fired him then walked him out where the student mocked them all the way to his car. let me tell you something, did you think that this student just accidentally had his lawyer's number that handy? nope, he was warned by a professional lawyer how CTC works.

    You see, CTC Brampton is a classic case of systematic discrimination. Suppose they were to come after me I now work for the UFCW Union I would get free representation and I know exactly the info I would request to prove my case - employee records. You see, before the student bonus payout they look for any reason to fire their part timers to save money. and they wait right before the bonus to fire these people. Like of that student that was to get arrested for attempted bomb threats......if he really did such a thing how fast do you think the police would be called in to arrest that kid? seriously think about it !

    All I have to say to those part time workers, isn't it better to work full time at Food basics for $ 2.00 less an hour and work in a nicer environment? is all that monotony or heavy weight worth busting your hump for work an extra $80.00 per week?
