Poor management, no room for advancement, poor salary structure
Group Benefits (Former Employee) –  Toronto28 September 2013
Worst company in terms of employee appreciation. Most reports generated are false and deceiving. Worst Manager and Supervisors because they don't know the real ethics and technicalities of the work on the floor.
Pros
Meeting friends amidst the very stressful work environment
Cons
Imagine buying your own supply of water and hand sanitizers inspite of the low salary.

Claims Examiner (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB12 February 2018
The best part of this job were my co-workers.
The worst is upper management. Very stressful
They change procedures often, instead of 2 windows to find information changed to 5 (takes more time) they listen to outside consultants rather than their own workers who do the job.
You are not allowed a voice when something is unfair to workers.
Pros
co-workers
Cons
window of opportunity to get a good bonus is so small

Challenging work but made unbearable by favoritism
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB8 February 2018
The work was challenging and kept challenging me hopping.

I would have stayed but my work ethic was my worst enemy.

Had a site supervisor who was afraid of women and two Female Shift Supervisors who played more than worked

Too many female employees wanted special treatment which my two managers gave them.

They slowly turned the site into a girls club and spent more time chatting and hanging out then actually working.

Not sexist just telling it like it was
Pros
Close to home
Cons
Cliques
