An excellent atmosphere with great people. Unfortunately constantly let down by management.
Service Advisor (Current Employee) – Whitby, ON – 6 February 2018
GP Bikes is a great place to work! Everyday I have fun with my colleagues. The atmosphere is always good. Working with motorcycles is different than your average retail job you can be yourself more. Bikers are very down to earth. Where GP falls apart is management. From the top down they don't seem to get that they need to stand behind their employees. They will flake when you stand your ground with a customer and give in to their demands constantly invalidating you. They "pass the buck" like it's their job, everything that goes wrong is someone else's department or problem and usually ends up falling on the little guy or gal aka the employee on the floor. If the managers could step up and accept that anything an employee does is their fault (just a part of being a manager unfortunately) they could be great because the structure is there. The HR department is excellent but everyone else is too busy covering their own butt.
Great place to work and friendly coworkers
Management does not know how to manage and it hurts everyone below them.
Worked for them at a motorcycle convention, great company!
Retail Sales, Literature Distribution (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 29 October 2018
Only had a short period of time working for this company but every moment was fun and a learning experience. Mostly did distribution of literature for them and welcoming people into the large booth/helping them find any items they were looking for. Amazing customer service here and every employee was a pleasure working with.
