Bilingual Executive Assistant to VP (Former Employee) – Concord, ON – 15 April 2019
If you're a single Mom or have a personal life crisis, they will support you only to a small limit. Made to feel like despite no work performance issues and great work ethics, you were never good enough and that they did not want to invest any further in you. Did not matter if you performed many personal projects for an Executive unrelated to the company, there was no loyalty to the employee no matter how hard you worked. Felt used and discarded. Was told there was no issue with work performance, but no reason for termination other than budget cuts. Was a very odd reason for such a successful company.
Marketing Assistant (Current Employee) – Concord, ON – 27 February 2019
Job Work/Life Balance Bailey has allowed me to manage my personal life easily alongside my work life. Sick days, vacation days, personal days, moving days, and more are given and I'm grateful that to have those. I've been allowed to leave early when needed, and I've never been given flack for being late, calling in sick, working modified hours or needing to work from home due to weather.
Bailey most definitely cares about the welfare of their employees. I've seen other employees bring in their children when they need. I've seen employees given long medical leaves to manage their health, and also they have been incredibly understanding when a loved one passes away.
Management understands that life happens and accommodates you.
Salary/Benefits I've been working for 2 years and my salary has met the market standards and been given raises in line with my growth and work performance. Employees are also given bonuses, something is seldom seen nowadays.
The benefits are pretty great, from the top of my head there are dental, massages, vision, chiropractor, speech therapy and more. I've used the benefits extensively through the 2 years and they have helped a lot in managing costs.
Job Security/Advancement Management has given me the tools and training I needed to do well in my job. They are willing to invest in their employees not just in the above mentioned, but also in education, resources, and mentorship. I've learnt new skills and continue to learn new skills that are invaluable.
I've gotten the chance to interact with many different departments and Imore... get the chance to do many different tasks. Bailey is a company that is still growing and I'm excited to be here.
Management I've come into contact with many levels of management and all have been friendly, open, and helpful! Even the executive team, which is unexpected. My own personal boss has been the honestly one of the most understanding, supportive, professional, and hardworking people I know. There are many people you can go to for guidance.
Job Culture One of the best work cultures, they are definitely family oriented. There are lots of company events to participate in. Both external and internal. From holiday parties, BBQs to even bowling nights. These events are great fun, great time to unwind, and free food!
Oftentimes, there are chances to participate in charity events. The company believes in giving back to the community in a variety of ways.
I'm always laughing, and have little inside jokes with my co-workers. Bailey takes the comfort of their employees to heart. There is a full working kitchen for employee use, gym equipment to use, showers, and parking. I've even got a personal heater to use.
Bailey encourages communication from the top to bottom and bottom to up. Regularly there are town meetings to meet face to face with the president and have an open dialogue. Memos are given out to keep everyone in the loop and recently a survey has been done to get the feedback of everyone. I mean everyone. These results recently were used to improve the company.
Bailey Metal Products is a great work to be and I can say that with confidence. There is a lot of great things happening and the company is coming up on 70 years. That's amazing. I hope this helps!less
