Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON4 April 2019
Depending on what team you work for this place can be either hit or miss. During my time here an entire team left. Some people left and had no jobs to go too but were just tired of the day to day stress. While every job comes with stress this one in particular made life miserable. The systems in place are very dated which make it difficult to finish and effectively track work accurately. What makes it worse is the clique like mentality that this workplace holds. Its a dog eat dog world unless you are in with the clique. Managers listen and react to gossip as well as partake in it. Coming to work hoping to do your utmost best is everyone's goal however in such a childish environment its impossible. Several employees here are very unhappy with where they are career/personal life wise..this takes a toll on any what they bring to work each day. Hopefully with the new owners being from a clear professional background they will clean this place up.

Not for everyone
Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 July 2018
Very fast paced environment and rapidly growing. There are many things to be learned which is great but instead of increasing the head count the work will be stacked until you do not care about your deadlines anymore.
The owners need to realize that they are no longer a small company. The biggest issue that they are somehow blind about is that they do not have structured human resourcing. HR needs a boost as there is zero flexibility, no care for employee culture, and no job analysis whatsoever which leads to workload imbalances. Many of the managers do not have adequate experience to be in their position, but have stepped up there as they have gained trust. This needs to change; you cannot just give someone a higher role because you like them, PLEASE have their skills fully analyzed and make sure they are qualified to be in the position by a human resources personnel (this means you need more people in HR and stop outsourcing the work). If you need the money, accounting needs to step up their game and work together with other departments as there are many holes where they are losing their money. Sales also needs to stop wasting internal resources on less important projects.
Pros
Nice people, good learning experience, hours

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON9 May 2018
High staff turn around, very unfriendly atmosphere. No teamwork. Your are micro managed not only by management by employees. The pay is so low for what you have to do. Extremely toxic environment.
