Horrible Company

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.

Dec Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB4 July 2018
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

Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB3 September 2017
Poor Management, business development leadership management lacking. No internal communications as everyone reports to a different District Sales Manager that in the end creates silos. Trying to being competitive but foes not have the a large footprint in many product categories leaving the Business Development Manager difficult in bringing on new accounts. There is also no marketing budget.
Pros
Dealing with Businesses
Cons
Small Player

Inside Sales (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON23 August 2017
unattainable sales targets for small business growth. if a customer bought new furniture one you year you were expected to reach that or above the following year and lets be real a small business is not buying new furniture every year. it was hard to reach goals. I loved the people I worked while there.
