Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 19 June 2017
The staff for the most part are really nice. In the summer they have a bbq and in the winter there is a big Christmas party to make up for the ordeal they put you through the rest of the year. The management are terrible, disorganized, unstructured and can't solve a problem or come to a consensus.Pay is quite low for what you do and the only thing to keep you going are your co-workers who all suffer along side you. Most staff do not last longer than a year here and it all goes back to management.

Receptionist (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 11 November 2015
I enjoyed working with everyone at this company from the management to the factory workers. I think this company was wonderful to work for. The only issue I had was there wasn't enough work to keep me busy through the day. I don't like sitting idle and prefer a job that keeps me busy.
