Do not work for this company!
Contract pharmacist (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB1 June 2019
Not informed of the duties I would be tasked with as a pharmacist: standing in a +32 deg C stuffy, poorly lit, dirty warehouse checking rx's all day for embarrasingly low wages.

When asked if I could bring a standing fan into the warehouse to make the temperature bearable, was told it was unsafe. This coming from the manager who did nothing to rectify bare wires hanging outside the fridges that twice smelled burnt. This also coming from a manager that allows broken chairs to be used by staff. One chair broken to the point that if one were to sit on it you you would end up on the floor, yet staff were expected to sit in it to print waybills. Another broken chair sitting in the lunch room (aka closet).

Poorly running fridges that constantly break down, requiring cold chain orders to be moved over and over again. Disorganized procedures and minimal communication.

Manager and company does not appear to care about the temporary contractors - take advantage of primarily Canadian newcomers who won't likely raise concerns with the horrendous working conditions.

Manager does not support staff when they are "yelled at" over the phone from a colleague in another city due to small meaningless errors on packing slip. Several staff reported being "put in their place" by this colleague, yet the manager does nothing.

Witnessed a contractor get fired yesterday after 2.5 days for a packaging error that most likely was not her fault. Yes, the worker had a bit of an attitude, but only because she was also not informed that as a pharmacy assistant required to have +++ experience
  more... with Kroll, pharmacy billing, etc , she would be sticking labels on products and packing boxes for delivery all while being paid minimum wage. Manager could have easily listened to her concerns and encouraged a more positive attitude, but instead chose to fire this person without so much as a warning.

This contractor was told she would not be paid for her 2.5 days of work as she "broke the contract".

I suggest one strongly considers a trial period of 1 week if you are offered a position with this company.

Great company with great values.
Knowing you make a difference in someone's life day after day is a reward in itself.
Management is personable and so are the employees.

WORST MANAGEMENT- not worth your time and effort here
Innomar Strategies team member (Former Employee) –  British Columbia30 December 2017
Poor and unprofessional management, no proper training or work evaluation. Shared an office with people who watched netflix during their shifts, wear PJs to work and bring their blankets to nap! LOTS of office politics and gossiping.

HR is incompetent, hard to reach and simply does not care about employees issues or special requests.

Terrible office management, warehouse manager runs office poorly with very low budget. We had to bring our own cream and milk for our coffee! As well as, our own stationary items! No joke.

Management at Innomar: Poor morale. Lack of understanding, accountability, motivation and does not provide feedback.

With the constant change, managers are bullies who ask for too many things to get done, don't follow up or praise hard work and will throw you under the bus simply because they personally don't like you (or for bringing attention to existing issues).

Employee survey was taken last year, where 80% of employees found issues with their management, yet NOTHING changes!

The worst place to work! AVOID AT ALL COST!

La culture globale de la compagnie est très bien.
Cette compagnie a un haut taux de roulement ce qui créé un sur utilisation des employé. Beaucoup de favoritisme et mauvaise répartition des tâches. Les travaux des départements semble être fait en silo ce qui n'est pas évident dans les prise de décision individuel des département.
Pros
beaucoup d'activité interne d'équipe
Cons
mauvais management, hypocrisie, favoritisme, beaucoup d'ouvrage pour certain et peu pour d'autre

Great place to work
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Oakville, ON9 August 2017
I've been with Innomar for three summers and a row, and it is a great place to work. Pays well, and has a great company culture. Innomar is constantly finding fun and creative ways to engage their employees. Would highly recommend anyone to work at Innomar.

Great place to work overall, amazing co-workers and directors. Middle management is not the best which can make working conditions frustrating. If you find a good manager then stay!!

Deceitful pyramid scheme
Medication Access Caseworker (Current Employee) –  Oakville, ON3 September 2016
Innomar strategies misrepresents itself as a company that values its employees. Many relatively trivial initiatives are used to support this notion. Its human resources management practices with regards to entry-level employees reveal an unfortunate intention of exploiting labour with the sole intention of driving profits. I was provided very minimal training, being deprived of the training that the organization states they typically provide and blamed for the result of being poorly-prepared to perform my job duties from the beginning. I am absolutely shocked by the degree of nepotism in this company, to the point where I was the only new entry-level employee that was hired solely based on my own merits. My observation is that a lack of professionalism is tolerated due to connections and seniority. I therefore have lost confidence in my ability to succeed in this company based on my demonstrated abilities and my true potential. If you are experienced in the role at Innomar you are applying to and if you are a nine-to-fiver who is happy to simply work hard for a paycheque without expecting anything else, your experience might be different.
Pros
1-hour paid lunch, many soft benefits
Cons
Unrealistic expectations in terms of performance and productivity

High Stress, Poor Management
Prefer not to say. (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB25 July 2016
Poor management, head office in Ontario barely came by to see what their "perfect" manager was actually like in real like. Constantly got things thrown back in my face, never congratulated for a job well done, only the small problems. Very high stress environment, no real teamwork ethic. Had no real human resources department, no real person to talk to if there was conflict in the workplace.
Pros
None.
Cons
Stressful, horrible management, no human resources department.

Excellent learning opportunities, low morale,
Prefer not to say (Former Employee) –  oakville9 June 2015
Currently a very American operated company, lots of overtime, and a very corporate atmosphere. Has become more of a cut throat type of company, which regards its employees more as minions, than partners.

Although I believe that some of the management is attempting to change this, it is still a very cold environment to work in.
Pros
Excellent learning opportunties
Cons
Too much overtime, culture is cold

Accounts Payable Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Burlington Ontario29 September 2013
Management never supported employees, if anyone said the information was wrong you got yelled at even if the work was done correctly. If you were friends with management you didn't have to work hard and if you did errors it was ok people who were not friends had to work harder pick up the slack and hope no one blames you for their errors.
Pros
if you were friends with management you could do anything
Cons
no team enviroment
