Good Company
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB7 January 2019
G&T really tries hard to support their staff and are always open to new ideas from the warehouse workers. The problem with this company is some of the staff they had were not willing to work and were not very reliable. Shifts were short people because they just did not feel like going to work. They are bringing in better people and the workload is getting easier.
Pros
Hours
Cons
Lazy workers

Designer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 August 2018
The work is fine, lots of opportunities to improve.
Management can improve. There is a clear disconnect with the staff which creates an awkward culture at times.
The hardest part of the job is dealing with some old systems.
The best part of the job is flexible hours and work from home days.

Worst job I ever worked at. Would never suggest someone work for them. Did not treat their employees with respect. Very glad they went out of business.

I had this job while I was in school. It paid well, not a tough job for sure. You can work according to your schedule they have a lot of assignments that they can find to match your needs.

Small Business Account Representative (Former Employee) –  Scotia Centre1 November 2017
This was a bit of a sinking ship within the roles that I was working so seeked out other employment. Compensation was not that great even though was usually top 2 in Western Canada for sale targets. Went through 7 different people to report into within the year that I was there.
Pros
Central location that you could walk to your clients
Cons
Wages

Graphic Designer (Current Employee) –  Vaughan, ON18 October 2017
The culture and space is amazing! Great work from home and flex hours available. Unfortunately management is lacking. New ideas aren't brought forth, and there isn't any encouragement to innovate. Management is very much a factory of no....need to look towards the future
Pros
Beautiful office, great people
Cons
Understaffed, too many managers and not enough action
