Shift Leader (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 29 July 2016
Working at Sirens I've gained a large number of strengths. The main two, in my opinion, being customer service and time management. A day in the life of a Sirens worker is very fast paced where one will typically meet over 100 different personalities.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – taiwan – 18 April 2016
The hardest part of the job is that there is a lot of office politics to handle and many old staffs are not friendly and unwilling to teach, Thus it takes a long time to establish a training program with SOPs to help new bloods ease into their jobs and gradually replace the unsuitable ones.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 9 February 2016
A typical day at work could be anywhere from extremely enjoyable to unbearable. You learn a lot very fast, it can be really overwhelming but the manager (in all my experiences) have all been helpful. The hardest part is fairness and part time employees. They can be really hard to find, and the company is so big sometimes a lot of what they do seems unfair.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park – 27 September 2014
I used to do the paperwork almost the entire shift, and make sure that everybody was following the policies and doing a good costumer service, sometimes we got busy and I helped with the cash area or with the costumer service as well. But for me the best and most enjoyable part was the administrative part.
