High on "Cool aid"......low on salary......all in all not bad for short term but dont plan anything longterm
IT Consultant (Former Employee) –  West 1st Vacouver15 April 2018
Worked there for around 3 years......few observation
-Work life balance depends very much on your department and manager. Some managers were very good at it,......some managers struggle to interpret what all the new policies mean as upper management dole out new ones every quarter.
-Few perks like prepaid debit cards for gym, heavy discount on clothing, profit sharing.........do keep in mind they come with lots of ifs and buts.
-Company has done really well year on year, they have really churned out good results quarter after quarter for long time. Definitely there has been few misses......but they have remained competitive in a ever crowded space.
-Don't expect good results will trickle down to more salary+bonus levels, they expect every one to get high on what I call "Lulu cool aid" and make do with low salary in one of the costliest metropolitan area in North America.
-Contractors are paid decently, Full time employees are expected to make do with clothing discounts.
-Upper management can get hired and fired in very quick patterns.
-Don't go Full time wont be worth it......contracting will be better approach.

EDUCATOR (Former Employee) –  Vancouver30 March 2018
They know a mentally fit person is more capable to work better or faster and they care about your mental health. It was a great place to learn about customer service. I would recommend others to join in.

Great culture at work place but tainted by selfish individuals
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC11 February 2018
The distribution center was a great place to learn and grow. Possibilities to get rotated and learn new skills are there if you seek it. Build your resume through here.

You will noticed how the management tried to make the workplace great and different unlike other warehouses.

However if they sees you as a threat to that culture, they won't keep you despite your productivity. It's not unionized. You're on your own.

There are few people who are genuinely nice and they made your day at work.

Approach with cautions if you do want to grow in this company. It's easy to get lost with all the euphemism and sugar coatings.

Otherwise it's a nice place to come to work to.
Pros
Staff discounts, fitness classes at work, modern facilities, safety is top priority
Cons
Sometimes unfair tasks distributions but keep it open mind and exercise good ethics

fun office with great perks
Planner (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC10 October 2017
management is not on the same page and there tends to be a lot of re-work of tasks. depending on your role you can really enjoy all the fun activities / outings the office supports; however if you're in a data intensive role the work is manual and you work long hours.
