Various Roles (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON24 June 2019
it's one thing to be just another number, such is the life in a factory...but this company goes over and above shoving it's employees around because they can. They talk like they wish it to be a family like atmosphere and act like it's a prison (screw your own family) ...most immoral place I've ever worked
Pros
none
Cons
hr are cowards and inhumane

Napoleon takes care of its employees insuring hydration and ways of cooling off in a very hot environment. You will be properly trained on the lines you will be working.

Awful Place to Work
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON21 November 2018
Management is the biggest problem! The favoritism is absolutely crazy, they aren't willing to work with any newly hired employees, instead they find any way possible to screw employees around making them feel like they can never do as good as the people who have been with the company more then 7years or AKA the favorites. You get punished for the stupidest things like being 1 min late they will take one of your PEL days and also give you a discipline which goes on your record and effects pay raise and ability to move within the company no matter how hard you work on a daily basis and this makes it easy to terminate employment and creats a lot of sour employees. They are so unorganized you are expected to have work instructions that tell you how to do the job but 75% of the time there are non or the ones you have are so outdated they make no sense. You are punished as an employee for the company's lack of purchasing equipment from this day and age, you are forced to work overtime when their 40 year old machine cant spit out the amount of product they need. The team leaders and human resources are all one big happy family with management so you cannot go to anyone with any kind of issue or complaint and expect it to be kept confidential. It is a family owned company with no union for the workers, they will change rules in the employee hand book whenever they so please and however it will benefit them. I can go on and on but over all if you are looking for full time employment ha good luck! And if you are just looking for part time or temp work dont bother applying cause they will  more... probably get rid of you in a month anyways because the team leader doesn't like you or if you are a young women you are now competition and you will never be liked.  less

Avoid at all costs!!
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON15 November 2018
Worked in the showroom and it was a version of Dante’s Inferno. The general manager of the place constantly would slash the sales people’s comissions/pit people against each other and then pocket the money into his own gl account. Watched him and his “management” team bully people and instruct people to avoid customers that were having issues or give them the run around until the customer would give up. Contacted hr about shady interactions and workplace harassment I seen and was in so many words told to not worry about it. Then the report that I gave in confidence to hr was given to the person I reported on. If willing to stroke some egos endlessly, and never look at yourself in the mirror again, could potentially be a great job

Operator/Labourer (Former Employee) –  214 Bayview16 July 2018
This company needs to focus more on their employees and how they are doing and to help them more ...not to backup management when they are wrong people are dismissed and fired for no reason they expect extra hard work for minimum pay they do have some wonderful people there working for them too bad this company treats them like garbage.. this job can be very stressful with no help from the TL because they always point out the negative and never the positive and never tell you what a good job you did today ...this is a horrible company to work for !!!!
Pros
The employees
Cons
Bad pay management is rude and unhelpful

Management is horrible
Assembler (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON25 March 2018
They have to many managers and they have no clue what they are doing. Management focuses to much on product qualities then product quality. Owners need to focus more on management and better wages. They are losing valuable employees due to management.
Cons
Management lack of focus on quality

Great people, poor paying company with too many managers
R&d (Former Employee) –  Barrie7 March 2018
The company pays poorly with high promises of advancement, which don't end up happening. They always back pedal on previous decisions and never hold themselves accountable. It's a pass the buck and blame everyone else. They aren't willing to invest in proper product development and create subpar products
Pros
Lots of good hard working people
Cons

Good Company
Customer Solutions Expert (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON30 November 2017
I enjoyed working for Napoleon. They are a great company. They are growing fast and trying their best to balance that. My job was pretty stressful because of lack of customer service, but that seems to be changing and they are starting to put themselves in their customers shoes. The biggest thing that bugs me is Company Policy is to not give references but yet they ask for references when you are interviewing for a position. Why not support your past employees and have all your past employees continue to grow your business. WOM goes a long way.
Pros
Great people to work with
Cons
stressful

Terrible experience
Bilingual Product advisor (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON11 October 2017
I was promised advancement towards further education which is technically required, and this never transpired. There is a great deal of scrutiny and fear instilled in the entry level positions and ongoing coaching to criticize ones weekly tasks. The demands for daily tasks are are unattainable and there is no support when situations arise . There are a load of missing resources missing to do this job and the early weekly meetings are demanding as it is a salary position.
It is a good old boys club with no explanations and no opportunity to explain issues to defend yourself.
Pros
Free skating once a year
Cons
Stressful calls with complicated issues

Fluctuating Company Objectives Make For Unstable Carreer Path
Customer Solutions Expert (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON22 February 2016
Most of the employees are great to work with. However there is a lot of fear instilled in the lower level employees by management. The company is in a very transitional state of growth, sometimes they overshoot their growth and need to cut back, that is what happened to me. There is not a lot of guidance in the department that I worked in and I think that was the challenge. I learned to be a lot more self sufficient and not to be as trusting. It was an unfortunate lesson to learn. The benefits vacation and bonus structure for new employees is not that great, but the compensation is decent. It is frustrating due to the amount of tenured employees that fall under the grandfathered structure.
