Fun workplace, but also productive at the same time
Administrator (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC16 August 2016
I was working with the inventory department then and it was always busy. There are a lot of paperwork to be done and I love it since the day passed by very quickly.

The team was great and one of my best experience in a working environment. My peers are supportive and helpful while our superiors also took on mentor roles to teach and guide us.

Hardest part of the job is really there are alot of things to do and there is just not enough time in a day. Our administration work is operative and needs to be cleared in a day since there might be shipments in or out the next day. Thankfully, due to the guidance of the team, I could mostly get my work done on time.

Controller (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC3 August 2016
Great company, good senior management team. Flexible, friendly team, unlimited vacation, good company culture, beer Fridays. Only downside is aggressive and always changing target, maybe hard if you don't have the mindset for it.

I love working here
Marketing Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Vancouver23 September 2014
This is a company that is in a growth phase. With that in mind, there are countless opportunities to develop and to own your own projects.

This company encourages curiosity and asking "why", rather than sticking with how things are done. This leads to constant innovation and sometimes a sense of disorder (without it being chaotic), which I love.

If you're someone that likes procedures and being told exactly what to do, this company will overwhelm you. However, if you like to flex your brain and have a lot of space to do things your way, this is the place to be!

The people that work here are an amazing and fun bunch.
Pros
Great people, great hours.

Sales Specialist Outdoor Department (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC30 June 2014
Great place to start a career in sales. A very good approach and initiation into customer service and sales practices with and in house Sales Trainer who has years of successful experience under his belt. A lot of standard call center frustrations are expected but the the culture and of the company and the atmosphere balance it out. Still a very young company that is growing into itself and opportunities will arise for hard workers that have a lot of experience.
Pros
Great Atmosphere
Cons
Call Center Frustrations
