State of the art Head Office, a dream for most people with excellent group culture
MEDIA MANAGER (Current Employee), montreal, quebec – October 29, 2014
Pros: free parking, subsidized lunches, eco-friendly building
Cons: not great for work/life balance, long, tiresome hours
I have been here over 7 years and it has been an awesome company to work for. There is a palpable energy in the building as soon as you walk through the doors and I have learned so much in my job as it has evolved over the years. The people are young, vibrant and brimming with enthusiasm, the building itself is pretty spectacular, complete with a university-like campus, gym, free parking and great cafeteria, to name a few perks. Most enjoyable part of the job is the comraderie among team members. I have formed many close friends over the years, it's great.

Assistant Manager (Current Employee), winnipeg, manitoba – May 31, 2012
Cons: opening/closing more than one store in a day
I come to work everyday and actually want to be there. My team is always happy and up-beat. I've learned a lot about Aldo Groupe as a company. The most useful lesson I have learned about management in this company is that, not everyone is going to like you. Working for this company i have noticed that they enjoy having new associates around. They truly believe that everyone is replacable. The hardest part about the job is having to tell yourself that you are appreciated, because there isn't always time for your manager to tell you. The most enjoyable part about the job is putting a smile on customer's faces. It feels great to go that extra mile for someone and know that they appreciate everything you did for them.
