Sales Support in Ontario
on 28 November 2022
Not an awful workplace

Nice to you in some ways, like giving a long lunch, but not nice if you don't fit in and break your back for them. No advancement opportunities. Didn't pay attention to my resume, hired me for a position I "wasn't qualified for," and kind of blamed me.

Not a friendly place, very poor Management

Total waste of time, management have no technical education related to job functions, dirty warehouse setting with zero customer service, poorly managed stores.

Good place to learn and start

Growth opportunities narrow down/disappear as you grow. Watch your back always it is an extremely competitive work environment. No salary increase no performance reviews.

Laissé à soi-même

ils en veulent toujours plus, sans en donner plus.

Distribution Center Help Desk Support in Kitchener, ON

Horrible place to work.

Only managers get fulltime benefits. No benefits at all. Rude managers and not very understanding. They watch you like a hawk and monitoring how long it takes you to do each task. They have their favorites and if you're not it then they will make it hard for you. They also give you write ups for mistakes even when you're a few weeks in. Not the best environment. Don't work here.
