No chance for advancement, treated like just another number.
Claims Assessir (Former Employee) –  Kingston, ON2 November 2016
Contract after contract and no one went to bat for us. Top performers were some of the temps and contracts, but they never got any company perks or benefits. The salary is low for the amount of responsibility. It's always a blame game and the gossip is cancerous.
Pros
It's downtown
Cons
It's downtown, parking is $100+/mth
