Pros: they will match 50% of your rrsp contribution to a max of $2500 per year.
Cons: worst place on earth to work
You can work here for years and never get a pay raise. Even with inflation, you'd expect your company to give you something but no, not Pareto, not a dime more. Even a cashier at Rexall can get a raise after so many hours worked. Not here.
Bonus: if you are lucky your department gets a bonus, but it's up to your manager to decide what you get, which means they can keep the majority of it for themselves. A Bonus is NOT a raise and it never covers the average 3% of inflation.
Benefits: 80% with a cap for the year. but you do get $300 for the year Health Spending but that quickly goes, if you have to get your teeth fixed or need eyeglasses ($50 only for every two years is nothing).
the only good thing is that they will match 50% of your RRSP contribution to a max of $2500 per year. not a lot but its something.
Stressful. if business increases and people decrease, you're expected to take on more with no compensation or even a thank you. It's just expected of you.
If you are labelled as "difficult" because you say no to something or can't or stand your ground on something you believe in or don't kiss behinds, it is very hard to shake and therefore people will look upon you as such.

- Job Security:
People have been jumping ship for a while, or get let go if "you're not a team player" but what their definition of a team player differs from most. If someone doesn't like you, it's very easy to get fired, – more... all hearsay. Cliques get together and get people fired, i've seen it.
If you ask for help or ask them to hire someone else, they won't and fire you because you can't do the job, but then will find two or three people from other departments to split your job.
all the good managers have left. all that's left are people who advanced through making their team work to the bone and they take the credit for. They have no taste and no imagination.
- Work/Life Balance:
you are expected to work weekends and late. if you don't "you don't belong here" (webcast statement).
Worst place to work!
on a positive side, there are some people here who are very nice and do work hard, I just feel bad for them.
Pot lucks are employee driving without any support from management (they just show up for the free food). – less
