Pleasent work place with reward
Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON15 February 2018
Worked for Max for around 2 years. Was overwhelming at first but was very rewarding at the end.

They underwent a massive expansion early 2017 and everything started to go uphill from there. I have learned from various departments and the majority of the co-workers and some managers are very supportive.

There was a lack of diversity at the beginning but that also changed after the expansion. The work culture is probably one of the best things here. Working here wasn't that stressful for me and the compensation is fair in my opinion.

Good place to start.
Great facilities, supportive coworkers
Longer work hours since lunch is an hour

A company that is undergoing immense growth
Sales Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON15 February 2018
Great work environment and dynamic that also offers chanllenges and learning experiences.

Since this company is growing in a rapid paste, the company is also adapting and learning in the same time. Which gave me a lot of first hand expereinces that are extremely valuable.

For people who value self-growth and learning, Max is a pretty good place to start. If you can excel with the right work attitude you could move up the ladder in a short amount of time.

Personally I joined as a CSR and I moved up to the supervisor position within a year because I push constantly.

It was an overall good working experience for me.
Dynamic work culture and lots of learning opportunities
Challenging tasks and responsbilities

Job Culture
Disorganized and high stress environment with low pay
Department of Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON20 September 2016
A typical day:
- check and reply to customer's emails
- answer phone to place orders, answer technical questions about products, resolve issues regarding shipping or product defects
- organize and input invoices and paperwork

What I learned:
- operations of a small business
- valuable experience dealing with a variety of international and local customers
- valuable office administrative experience
- technical aspect of braking system in a vehicle

- unprofessional, too much gossiping, disorganized
- unclear of my responsibilities and daily tasks - excessive work load
- does not properly compensate employees for overtime or holiday pay
- improper or non-existent training for new employees

- some are friendly
- high turnover rate

Hardest part of the job:
- excessive work load and unclear daily responsibilities creates a disorganized work team which can lead to high levels of stress
- about half of minimum wage was paid during an extended training period
- false advertising of job title

Most enjoyable part of the job:
- they might buy you a cake for your birthday
- learning about vehicles and the complexities of the braking system
- improving my interpersonal and communication skills
Occasional free lunches or bubble tea
Salary deductions for time missed but nothing added for staying overtime, disorganized and unprofessional, unfulfilled promises of bonuses and wage increase, excessive office gossip
