Poor management

London location was under staffed and poorly managed. Bad location, with not a lot of walk in traffic. Commission is paid once a year with a poor base salary.

Extremely unprofessional
Administrative Clerk (Former Employee) –  Nisku, AB23 July 2018
Flaman sales Nisku has the potential to be an incredible company. They have fantastic benefits and the company as a whole seems to have good intentions. However, the way the administrative department is run is extremely unprofessional. Your success at the company is based on who you're friends with. Hardly any training is provided and asking questions is made to seem inconvenient. Expectations are unclear and often contradictory between different levels of management, and employees suffer for it.
The department manager lacks leadership and interpersonal skills, she was very unapproachable if you had any questions or concerns. She often talked poorly about employees to her non-managerial friends within the company, this included gossip as well as official business such as confidential performance evaluations. Preferential treatment was often given to those within the manager's clique.
Upper management was unwilling to address issues within the department.
Pros
Good benefits, free lunch on Friday's in the summer.
Cons
Catty staff, preferential treatment, bad management, poor leadership.

Decent environment
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Burlington, ON31 January 2016
When working here you really get to know your customers on a personal level. That will help you maintain your sales quota and then some. Sales are not hard to come-by when being in a retail store setting, plenty of foot traffic and the freedom to make cold calls aswell.
