Slow and boring work, coworkers and managers are very unfriendly
Warehouse worker (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJune 3, 2013
Horrible management, very disorganized. I do a task and get yelled at by a different manager for doing said task. I had hours missing from my check many times and HR refused to do anything about it.

Recovery Associate/sales associate (Former Employee), Burlington, ONOctober 10, 2015
Good pay and great benefits..... HR is a different story. Some half decent managers but a few should not be at all. Great hours having weekends off and having a 15%discount on purchases was not bad as well.
