Very busy, requiring creative thinking and a lot of digging. Hard to hit bonuses(actually have lost money coming to work for Action). Management and owners, have really handled the crisis so far very well. Staff safety is a top priority, and they ahead of the curve when the crisis hit. Constant change in procedures, not always for the best.
Pros
Safety and security, Decent Working Hours.
Cons
Constant Changes and Communication

Upper management is a bit of a mess, excellent product lines but change frequently. Somewhat knowledgeable staff but do your research. Company has great potential with some polishing

Face paced environment with no time for a dull moment. Management structure is accessible at all levels and very supportive. The culture is very family type oriented which makes the team strong and unstoppable. There are some amazingly talented people throughout this organization who are a respected force in the industry.
Pros
Great team of soldiers who constanty help one another, employees get alot of recognition for their effort
Cons
Lots to learn in the beginning but all worth it long term

Working at Action Car and Truck Accessories so far has been an overall positive experience. Management is friendly and understanding, from the store manager, to regional, all the way to the top, everyone has been a pleasure to deal with. The job certainty takes some getting used to, as it is a fast paced environment, but the job itself isn't entirely difficult. I would wholeheartedly recommend working here.
Pros
Relaxed environment, friendly management, great hours
Cons
fast paced environment, lots of new details to learn

Always something new, great bonus structure. Management takes their time and helps out alot. Company is great with training and will take the extra steps to help where needed. Having a passion or knowledge of vehicles will help but not needed. Room to grow within, relocating etc.
Pros
Staff, customers, Ac, Not boring
Cons
Open on Saturday's

I have worked at Action for about 1 year and a half. I don't think I have ever had so much fun at a job. The staff are all pleasure to work with. Fantastic work environment to come into everyday. If you have a team player mentality this is place for you!
Pros
Bonus structure, Great work/life balance

Fast pace day never a dull moment, lots of customer interaction. Vary family oriented company. Management team is very supportive. Ongoing training with products, and opportunity to advance as well. Hardest part of the day is that there is never enough time in the day. Overall experience in my books is 10/10.

Very bad store manager in Timmins. More concerned about txtn his girl friend and playing games on his cell then caring about store and employees! Terrible with costumers as well, many complaints. As for regional mngr hes a hypocrite and lies all the time. The president is a super guy to talk with and work with on his yearly visits.

Unqualified management that mistreats customers and employees. Unqualified personnel in the shops and a lack of knowledge provided by shop management leads to safety hazards for employees and customers alike.

Typical “family driven” business practise.

It’s a long training process to learn all the products and procedures This isn’t your normal call centre sales, commission and a lot of studying. Pretty good atmosphere though

Most unorganized place I have ever worked.
The pay was ok but very stressful place to work as the staff was not properly trained. I told them that they were going to lose me as an employee on many occasions. Coworkers were very immature and never show up wich made it harder on the ones that were ther.
Pros
monthly bonus
Cons
lots of weekends and poor organisation

Working here is not a job if you have an automotive passion. Retail hours are reasonable since you are done at 6 pm. You can get overtime and the management is always ready to work with you if you need time off. Room for advancement and you can also relocate.I learned how to do installs, look up products and be better with customers with all the training I got.
Pros
Staff, customers, Ac, Not boring
Cons
Open on Saturday's

Overall good place to work. Great work environment for the most part. Dead lines can be a bit overbearing as with any automotive job. Schedule does not seem to matter as all sales reps dictate their own level of priority and do not fully communicate
Pros
Fun work environment, Benefits and Bonus
Cons
No incentive to stay based on tenure. Bonus structure is almost unattanable

This company isn’t are great as they seem or tell you.
They have a good assortment of products and unique installations are common, however;


-No work/life balance

-Very little respect towards employees

-Usually feel rushed/pressured to be overworked

-Sales numbers were more important than quality of work being done/products being sold


Wouldn’t recommend it to friends/family
Pros
Unique jobs/ free lunches or snacks
Cons
Rushed, overworked and unappreciated, told everyone is replaceable

Extremely poorly run company. Management isn't interested in maintaining a level of morale; they berate openly, are closed minded and dismissive, and care only about maintaining accounts.
Staff, especially warehouse and salespeople, are an expendable resource, and are paid poorly.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Inept management at all levels

The manager in st.john's branch is a hot head! I wouldn't recommend anyone to work for him!
He says one thing and does another!

He's hard on the head and childish!
