Not a company to work for.....
Director, FP&A (Former Employee) –  Toronto12 August 2013
Lack of direction and new ideas.
Even though the non management team do their best to keep the company running, the management never take a decision. The company is going into a downward slope but management seems not to care...they only like to book tones of meeting to talk about irrelevant topics....too concern about getting their pay check and bonuses. But more importantly there is a lack of values.
As an example, I can tell my story when i was told that my position was closed due to financial distress; however 2 weeks after i was invited to leave the company (2013) and was pushed to sign a "release" paper (where i was committed not to sue the company in the future) , HR published my position with almost the same role......if you are planning to be part of Office max - Grand and Toy please think it twice.......
Cons
Lack of communication, decision making and integrity in upper management

I enjoyed my time here. My district sales manager was awesome. Learned lot of things that helped me move ahead in my career. The place was getting slower and slower due to economy and oil prices. So management decided to close it down. Was good place with nice people to work with
Pros
