Branch manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON23 July 2017
Worked here for ten years and was unceremoniously laid off ON my ten year anniversary. (Best thing to happen in retrospect)
Salaried employees will work twice the amount of paid time.
Sales people will kill themselves trying to meet unrealistic targets.
Upper management is SO out of touch. The company itself is constantly being sold to corporations who clean house when they take over.
Fellow employees were usually good. It's a very male dominated company and the Good Ole Boys club is in full effect.
Women are administrative. Men are management with few exceptions.
Pros
Great customers
Cons
Long hours. no job security. horrible management

Premium place to work
Manager (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB22 April 2017
Solid place to work with a good environment for training and advancement. All staff take a min of 40 hours training each year but are encouraged to do more. Lots of senior staff there to teach the business. Strong social club that holds events and also a baseball team. They are always looking to add strong team players to the group.
Pros
Team environment
Cons
Fast paced and can get hectic.

Very poor organization to work for
Account manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto19 January 2015
Very very disorganized
Little to no training or assistance
Management was misleading, unrealistic and always looking for ways to undermine the employees' every move.
Co-workers were the greatest part of going to work. They understand the delusional operations of the company and despised the incompetent management.

None

Answering to idiotic management
