Designer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 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.
Good place to work, clean surroundings with great professionals
Interior Designer/CAD Operator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 June 2018
Grand & Toy shows good value and quality to both clients and crews. Every worker has their specific positions within the company making the entire team function in a diverse environment. A fun place to work.
Small Business Account Representative (Former Employee) – Scotia Centre – 1 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.
Central location that you could walk to your clients
Graphic Designer (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 18 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
Beautiful office, great people
Understaffed, too many managers and not enough action
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 3 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.
Inside Sales (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 23 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.
