This is a great place to work at for an entry - mid level corporate atmosphere. They have made a great shift into bettering relationships with employees, and bettering their products, and process of implementation.

Pros: Working atmosphere, benefits, fixed hours, huge company

Great place, awesome co-workers, working environment is very professional, inspiring and enjoyable. Very happy that I have started my career with this company. Most enjoyable part is every month there is an event and lunch party and company benefits. Management is very helpful, I never had any issue with them.

Uninspiring senior management
Marketing (Former Employee), Niagara Falls, ONJuly 11, 2014
Pros: i got to quit
Cons: i worked there
The company is run by a family of four, with the two brothers constantly fighting against one another. They completely demean one another and it reflects in the attitudes of the employees. The structure of the company does not make sense and either limits you to one brand or requires you to work on all nine. There is no time to relax or enjoy your time there as they stress the fact they're paying you to do a job, which is seen in the structure of the work day: show up at 8:15 am, work with no breaks until lunch, which can only be taken between 11 and 2, and if you miss that time frame you're SOL. They provide the bare minimum in compensation, benefits and support. They are afraid of change or experimenting with new ideas, unless it's going to make them money right away. No creativity is allowed. DO NOT WORK FOR THEM. It's best to see this company fail.

bad management
customer service (Former Employee), niagara fallsApril 28, 2014
Pros: great peers, great hours
Cons: bad management, no accountability and no quality assurance
They have huge turn over and know how to play the system. Put you on contract for 3 months then extend the contract, no benefits paid. Then they don't like the answers given in an exit interview and tell you to leave right away. My personal metrics were better than most there and it made no difference. I wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy!

high turnover...don't waster your time
buyer (Former Employee), Niagara FallsJuly 22, 2013
Pros: friendly staff
Cons: very high turnover
This place advertises positions constantly like a call centre would. They are not a large company so one would think the turnover wouldn't be so high. Discussed this company with an employment agency when I was looking for work and was told not to waste my time. Their interview process is very lengthy and in spanned out stages and sometimes never completed at all. Staff is friendly enough but overall not a great place to work.

Not a good place to work for.
Assistant (Former Employee), Nigara Falls, ONJune 28, 2013
Pros: good co-workers
Cons: long hours, mad management, high turn over
I worked here for a short period of time. I was an assistant. The way this company works is with a family at the top and employees below. They do claim to have 100+ employees. They do not, at most it has 50 employees. This company sets a person up to fail. Due to the high turn around and why you see jobs posted all the time. It looks good on paper but on the inside it is many people mainly the managing directors throwing people under the bus to ensure they look good. People do not stay longer then 6months to a year due to the work ethic. It's unfortunate because there are some great people who are stuck in a bad environment and could thrive and be appericated for the hard work they do.
