Good clean and safe environment. Much work to keep you busy and new skills to learn.
Warehouse clerk for Kuene & nagal in Hayward CA (Former Employee) –  Newark, CA12 July 2012
Come in to work clock in, and Start unloading, Big tin cans with computer chip products in boxes. Did inventory counts, scanned the products to be put away and pick orders most of the day. I learned new computer skills on receiving the products in and, putting them in locations manualy. managment was fair and treated their workers well. some co-workers were focused and their to work, but others were there to talk and distract. The hardest part of the job was stacking up the heavyer stuff on a pallet, other then that the work was pretty straight forward and not to hard. the most enjoyable part was working with a team that made me feel comfortable, it was like a little family.
Pros
fun people to work with
Cons
had to eat fast breaks were quick and got sent home eairly alot

Contracted by Volt Canada to test for EA
NHL 15 Quality Assurance Contract Tester (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC7 February 2016
An average job for an average person. The pay is low and the work is mundane. You'll get promoted easily if you have a nice figure, compared to an intelligent understanding of the material you're given. This is evidenced by the three or four people I’ve seen get promoted before others who have been there longer.

The company and position had no personality. You come in, work for eight hours, play this or that game then get a 300 dollar cheque at the end of the week.

You are expected to conform, not say any jokes and everyone on your team is out to make you look bad so they get promoted after the relentless 5 year battle to get noticed by EA.

They tell you how you should talk, act, think and work while there, which is fine, granted it's on company time but it's not the best attitude for people to want to advance.

EA staff itself treat you like second class citizens. If you even speak up during a meeting they look at you like an outcast. We were allowed to partake in the Friday beer days until someone decided to steal something, then this sliver of equality was stopped faster than lighting strikes.

1/10, would work again!
Pros
You get to play games
Cons
You are treated like a sheep.
