High expectations without fair pay. Quitting is the only way to get a pay increase.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great place to learn new things. Company is cheap and does not provide you with a fair salary for the work expected. Does not decrease work load or expectations even with a doctors note requesting light duty. Allows employees to be harassed by customers.

Really sad how hard some people work and never given a raise, the managers don’t have any say because head office treats them as puppets , you’ll keep your job if you don’t ask for a raise and just agree with everyone

Pros

None

Cons

Everyone is miserable about their job very negative place

Unfair workplace

Upper Management treats a person nice because of staff turnover, but when you ask for raise or help treated unfairly. Most of the employees are really unhappy but nobody cares

Pros

None

Cons

Toxic place, will never get the raise they promise

Management is Terrible, Doesn’t understand how to properly manage a business customers or workplace.

Management is terrible, all procedures and rules change based on who you are. Manage was scared to in-force company policies with long time employees. Had no problem using those same policies against other employees if it suited them. Management micro manages with out having proper knowledge of how things are suppose to be done and often caused more issues then solutions.

Pros

None

Cons

Management/ Pay/ You received benefit but you pay an Insane amount for them No job growth

Worked at Company glass tempering factory.

Horrible working environment. Requires constant over time put all the work on the people who actually work. Very dangerous environment. I worked here for 5 plus years and you can make good money but you will hate your life.

Pros

Can make good money on over time. But work is hard and painful.

Cons

almost everything

Staff are friendly, manager was violating everything

The staff are good people. The work is good. The issue was the manager. Disappointed in management attitude, no respect for employees, things go wrong it’s your fault.I was fired for no reason. I was told to lift glass the wrong way and safety was ignored every day.The manager at the cranbrook bc location should be fired.

Pros

Easy work

Cons

Manager has attitude

Avoid Macleod trail at all costs. Manger has an ego problem.

All of the mangers were really kind and fair aside from the one who worked at Macleod trail. He has a serious ego problem. I’d highly Recommend to avoid working at that shop in particular at all costs. No employee will own up to damages to cars they’ll just hide it, Unlike the other shops who mostly just own up and fix the damages. I assume it’s to avoid the drama he creates. 17th ave and centre street have amazing managers and employees along with the one near Glenmore trail look there first.

Would not recommend

Location management didn't follow company guidelines particularly in regards to proper reporting procedures. Technicians were inadequately trained and often left on their own to complete tasks they were not ready for. Lack of transparency with customers was a regular occurrence, and it was commonplace not to inform a customer if their vehicle had been damaged. Company culture was fine, but the individual location has issues.

Pros

Fair wage, job itself was fairly straightforward

Cons

Poor management, store manager mistreated staff, industry is oversaturated in area

Productive, efficient

Always had good repose with csr, they were very good at they're job in ordering parts and scheduling. Always very helpful and encouraging. Co workers were always helpful and some with more experience than me were good enough to share they're experience with me.

Crystal Glass under appreciate the staff.

Horrible workplace culture every single staff member HATES their job and complains its a very negative environment You are expected to work under awful circumstances such as no heat or AC they pay minimum wages and are very unfair with raises they have installers that have been working many years still under EIGHTEEN an hour they pay more to men than women and the regional manager is a complete jerk oh and the warehouse is an absolute nightmare to have to work with so unprofessional and disorganized

Watch out for managment.

The staff were great. The management is terrible. Coming in on a Saturday to do absolutely nothing at all is a total waste of a day. Benefits are garbage and the pay is subpar for this industry.

Promise made, no follow through.

Total lack of understanding of their employees and management staff. Unnecessary movement of staff, lack of skilled employees, promises made by upper management that don't come to fruition.

Its a job in a dying company

Im sure most locations are filled with good caring individuals but Head office is clueless and it is ruining a once great company. They are to focused on short term $$$ they lost track of the big picture. They forget that it is their employees that earn them those $$$.

Just don't work there.

Unreachable expectations.Your opinions mean nothing.Constant judgement and ridicule.Isolating workspace.You can’t say “no”.Constant harassment.Getting yelled & screamed at instead of fixing the issue. No reward for all of your hard work, just more work being dumped on you.

Just Don't Do It

Crystal Glass only cares about one thing and one thing only. Crystal Glass. Don't injure yourself because whatever the doc tells you to do they'll expect you to ignore it and get right back to work. Like the summary says just don't. DO ANYTHING BUT WORK FOR CRYSTAL GLASS.

Fun environment with helpful co-workers

Safety is not monitored properly, and has unsafe procedures. Very fun and helpful employees. Management approachable and sometimes required to work extra as needed (OT provided)

Pros

Good people to work with

Cons

Lack of safety

fun and always learning

Typical day at work was busy and never lacked in a learning moment. Management was good and there for you if needed. Hardest part of the job was convincing the farmers that as a woman we did know what we were talking about.
