Worst place to work
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ONJuly 20, 2016
Management is the worst, they are very rude and HR is not useful. You can never complain about the manager to the HR because they don't do anything about it. So if the manager doesn't like you then you will be in trouble.
