Great for IT Generalists or the Jack of all Trades type!!!
Service Desk Specialist (Former Employee) –  Ottawa10 December 2017
This is can be a good starting point for college graduates with no experience or someone changing careers and looking to break into the IT field. Also, if you are a seasoned professional who loves supporting a huge variety of clients and being challenged by very complex IT environments daily, then you can give it a try.

Interview process:
Grade A has a very long interview process. First step is to fill out an online application (with basic technical questions ) , phone screen interview, and 2 in person interviews ( first is personal and second is technical) . Worked for other competitors before and the process was not as long as this.
Pros
Free lunches, Exposure to a wide variety of technology, Helpful teammates
Cons
Unprofessionalism, Random Layoffs, Low pay

Dont believe the hype
Service Desk Technician (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON11 July 2017
This company bills itself as a young, fun, inclusive company, the reality couldn't be further from the truth. I would never recommend anyone to either work for them or to employ them to do any work for your business.
Management will talk about you behind your back and the past history of just firing people randomly isn't good. Poor morale, lack of leadership and not a good place to be
