Logistics Supervisor (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 29 August 2018
Day to day work is not too hard. It's family owned business which makes it feel more personable. A customer is really a king with this company and everyone tries to bend backward to help out whenever they can.
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 January 2019
The CEO is not honest with employees. He pockets spiffs paid by the manufacturers and intended for the sales staff. He also often yells and screams at employees for no particularly good reason. We were trying to grow but now we've seemed to stagnant. As he is often not around others try to fill the void. Not sure what the owners are thinking or doing. Not a great team environment. Customers are not put first.
Canadian Appliance Source respects everyone's point of view. Please note we take great pride in the environment and culture we are building at CAS. CAS compensation package for the sales team is industry leading and very rewarding. We encourage a positive work place with various activities/events through out the year. Just to highlight: monthly recognition newsletter, birthday monthly event, multiple summer BBQ's, 2 major company events per year, pizza days, etc... In terms of growth over the last 2 years we have built 12 stores and 2 Distribution Centers across the country. We also have a proactive HR department as well as a whistle blower 3rd party service available for those situations that require anonymity.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 October 2018
An ideal employee for Canadian Appliance Source is a young, inexperienced worker with low salary expectations.This is a great place to temporarily work in order to learn the basics of Appliance Sales and Operations and to get some experience on your resume. Experienced workers on all levels should stay clear.

Caution: Beware of any 4-5 star, 100% positive ratings that absolutely offers no real insight into the company - guaranteed to be plants from management. If you need a job yes go ahead. Only internet made it possible to put false reviews to get bonus from the employer.
Just wanted to politely point out that the link for the review site on Indeed is actually shared openly to every new hire once they have completed their probationary period as part of our feedback program.
Also, we do not practice "reviews for bonuses" for our sales associates. That program was done away with at the end of 2017. Then again, nothing prevents us from rewarding our staff when they receive a positive review!

Growing business. Lots of room for advancement.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 26 August 2018
Just started my employment with CAS. I go to work learning more each day. Management is more than willing to help. Company is growing rapidly across Canada. They pay a very fair starting wage until your commission is higher than the wage. Usually this takes a few months. I go to work each day with a positive mind set and really enjoy my job. If you have a positive mind set and with the company rapidly expanding there will be many opportunities for advancement at CAS. If you are reading this and debating whether or not to apply for a job posting I strongly recommend applying. Working here is a great place to work. I’m excited to see what my career at CAS holds. I
Customer Care Manager (Current Employee) – Laval, QC – 25 August 2018
I started my career at Canadian Appliance Source as a Customer Care Representative in January 2018. Since then I became a part of CAS family. At CAS work atmosphere is extremely positive. This is a place where hardworking is the key of success. Management supports and motivates their employees. I was promoted to the position of Customer Care Manager in June 2018. New role in the company opened to me new opportunities and gave me a chance to share my motivation with my teammates. I am very proud to be a part of this great organization which provides me with necessary tools and knowledge. What amazes me the most at CAS is how management takes feedback from employees to improve the company. I enjoy the fact that I represent the best Canadian company. Thank you CAS.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Laval, QC – 23 April 2018

Project Manager (Current Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 17 April 2018
Having been in the Appliance Industry for some time now I can honestly say joining the CAS team was the absolute right choice. Culturally this is one of the best places I have worked in the industry. Management is thoroughly on top of their game providing a structured, encouraging, and enjoyable work environment. Tools provided for executing your day to day are absolutely phenomenal. They are sincere leaders in this industry constantly growing and expanding their team. But more importantly encouraging and allowing for personal growth within the company. Opportunities are endless and things are always changing for the better. What really amazes me is how genuinely they take associate feedback to continue to improve this organization. I feel supported and challenged in my job which is a top priority for selecting a place of employment. All in all I am more than satisfied with my decision to come to CAS and I am looking forward to growing with the company.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 17 April 2018
Very friendly and productive environment to work in. Everybody looks out for each other and managers are very easy to talk to and helpful. The company takes pride in the products and services that are offered to their customers. Employees are also valued and it is evident by the way our managers relate to us.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 17 April 2018
I have been in the retail industry for more than 25+ years this has to be one of the best companies I have ever worked for! Very Innovative, user friendly and high tech sales order and follow up system to use. It makes your job very easy and you make less mistakes. Management always there for you for help and to support. Easy access to top management who always wants to hear from you for any suggestions or improvements. Job work and life balance is great, much better than my previous job. Employees are cared for, respected and recognized for the contribution they make everyday. Overall great support staff and very high paced professional work environment. For a challenging and rewarding career, this is the best place!
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 February 2018
No respect for sales people. No professionalism. Sycophancy is the only culture. If you are looking for a career in sales then you will get disappointment. They will find a way not to pay what you deserve.
Logistics (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 April 2017
I have been with the company for just over a year. During that time we have seen tremendous growth, which is exciting to be a part of.
Management encourages staff to expand skills and responsibilities and to take ownership of projects. Support is offered and is available as and when needed.
There is a friendly atmosphere throughout the and also a sense that people from every department are working hard to move the company forward.
I feel I am challenged every day to work hard and it's rewarding to see the difference my efforts make. I feel my opinions are listened to and the work I do is valued. The workload is high but that's as a consequence of growth. There are some issues that have arisen due to the increase in volume but steps are being taken to improve systems and efficiency.
Friendly staff, supportive management, growing company
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 25 March 2017
After being in retail for the past 35 years I came to Canadian Appliance Source just over a year ago in Hamilton. This is by far the most concise and professional appliance company in Canada. The training and overall atmosphere is excellent. Opportunities to earn a great income are abundant within this company. The customer care department and management staff are vigilant at helping the sales people with every aspect of the sale and delivery.I have never worked for a company that offers the sales incentives and the bonus structure that Canadian Appliance Source does. I enjoy coming to work each day knowing that this company strives to be the best in Canada at providing us with the best marketing strategy in the country. The hours also are considerably shorter then every other major appliance retailer. This keeps our staff fresh and maintains a balance of personal life and career. This as stated is.....simply a great career!
Excellent opportunity for growth, strong leadership.
Logistics (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 March 2017
I have worked at CAS for less than a year and so far it has been a great company to work for.
Management respects and values their employees as evidenced by the salary and benefits package.
CAS leadership encourages and nurtures a team environment and communicates change well. They welcome feedback from staff to streamline company processes and are quick to implement changes that make day-to-day work more efficient and effective.
This is a company where hard work actually pays off. There is a lot of growth in the company (which means that there is ample opportunity for promotions and pay increases).
I'm glad I found this company and I look forward to a long career with CAS.
Great coworkers, Team Environment, Strong Leadership
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Etobicoke – 20 March 2017
I have been with CAS about a year. I have been enjoying every day at work so far. One of the most attractive aspects of the company is its culture. I have never felt I am being drawn into top to bottom dated corporate brick and mortar culture. Whatever the role you are performing at CAS ,everyone gets the same respect they deserve and team members always there to help you if ever needed. Second ,its innovative approach to appliance market. CAS provides all the necessary high-tech tools in order to provide highest satisfaction to it's clients. Third , CAS is very versatile when it comes to problem solving. Executive team is always keeping all the communication channels open so when problem occurs they can come up with a solution fast in order to increase efficiency.
