No trust for Employees and Poor Culture
Technical (Former Employee) –  Kahnawake, QC12 November 2018
The employees are fine, but there is really something fishy and shady about their business practices.
The company is far from Montreal with a very limited or no access to transportation which is never on time. They hire and fire people even without any warnings, if someone doesn't like you, you will get fired. A really pity work culture, where no training is provided to employees.
It's into some shady business. If you are not getting a job anywhere in Canada, Join this place as the last resort.
And no in-house restaurant.
Bad management company.
Too many things are hitting to employees.
No career development. (No professional training, no plan for employees to reach next level)

Results never match the promises
IT Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Kahnawake, QC31 October 2018
Total disregard for employees efforts and ability to work through the non-stop changes and revolving management line. Most have no clue what they are doing but expect everyone to deliver results as if working in a well oiled machine. Somehow manage to hire talented individuals that eventually get frustrated and leave.
Pros
Free Parking
Cons
Management is a joke

Intense work setting, fun atmosphere, great co-workers.
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) –  Kahnawake, QC8 August 2018
If you're someone who doesn't mind alternating scheduling, and occasionally dealing with angry customers you'll probably gel well with the company.

The training offered to prep you for the job is really well collaborated. You start out with a theory component, then move on to on the floor training with someone shadowing you during the process to help you work out your kinks.

Management is very friendly and accommodating to their employees.

Workplace culture is pretty much family culture. Everyone is very much involved in friendships and doing regular outings together.

The toughest part of the job is not having weekends off. Although it's something that can happen by coincidence or by request, you're not very likely to get saturday or sunday off. The company itself however makes up for this negative aspect by doing regular team building sessions and hosting extremely extravagant and fun filled holiday parties.
Pros
co-workers, salary, holiday parties, team building
Cons
shift scheduling, not likely to have weekends off.

Such a great place to work !
anonymous (Current Employee) –  Kahnawake, QC4 July 2018
I love working here. it is the perfect combination of fun, challenging and meaningful.The people make the work great ! Never seen such a great mesh of demographics and cultures come together . There is opportunity to grow within my own department as well as other departments if I decide to change my career path.
Work life balance is great, I have the option to work from home, I have flex time if I need it .

The benefits are good too!They offer a health and wellness program, where they give us $$ a year to use on anything that makes us feel good (like gym membership, yoga or dance classes)

They also have a group matching RRSP program which is awesome.
Pros
free fruit, benefits, team building activities, great people
Cons
managers need more coaching

Upper Management has complete disregard for its employees
Manager on Duty (Former Employee) –  Kahnawake, QC7 December 2017
This company has a high turnover and people are discarded without any remorse. It is not a career company,as It is also involved in very shady activities and carries a bad reputation. On the other hand, if you are jobless and just arrived to the country and has no other on the table then go for it, but keep looking for something better.
Pros
Great Parties
Cons
Very high turnover

Okay if you have no skills, first job, no french
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Kahnawake, QC28 March 2017
HR has very little interest being a support to their employees. Its an okay place if you're starting work, or need something temporarily. Pays well. Colleague atmosphere is great, management is complete garbage. Advancement is available often, just make sure you always fake smile your managers. Don't trust their sweet talk, behind closed doors they trash talk a lot of people. Training is very detailed, and support on floor is always ready. You will be doing work more on the shady aspect. Ethics is out of the door. they will give you a few notices for your mistakes, if you don't fix them and not do them again (even minor), you're fired without a notice.
Pros
Free coffee, nice parties, good atmosphere, decent pay and benefits
Cons
Very far, sneaky and shady business, management is a joke, horrible scheduling

Excited to come to work every day!
Information Technology (Current Employee) –  Kahnawake, QC22 March 2017
As an IT person, it's very cool to be always working with the newest cutting edge technology.

The environment is dynamic and challenging, never a dull moment.
Management does actually care about the employees and strives to strike the right work/life balance.

The people that I work with are super smart, some of the best I've worked with in the industry, always willing to share information and help each other. I am always learning something new from my colleagues.

I'm actually excited to go to work every day and feel like what I do makes a difference.

If you are a quick learner and can thrive in a fast paced and dynamic environment, this place is awesome and the right place for you.

If you are looking for a place to coast by and hide under the radar, you won't last long.
Pros
Cool tech, cool people, free parking, reverse direction of rush hour traffic.
Cons
Wish there was a better choice of restaurants around. Some days its a bit too fast pace

Poor management in IT and no trust for employees
Technical (Former Employee) –  Kahnawake, QC9 December 2016
This company is run like a joke. A few former young employees on a high horse, employees selected with no management experience. Shady practices, no respect for people or different nationalities. You won't be chosen if you don't drink, and you can be fired for wearing the wrong colour jacket. And yes, it's far from Montreal with limited transport. It's small but a very political company. I spoke to many employees who also used to work there and had same feedback. HR girls did a great job at selling then position. Things quickly change once you start.
Pros
Good developers
Cons
No respect or trust for employees

Friendly Atmosphere with lacking resources
VIP Customer service representative (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC27 July 2015
A typical day consisted of dealing with anywhere from 25 phone calls and 15 emails from clients to 40 calls and 30 emails.

As a result of the unpredictability of what each day would bring, I further honed my ability to adapt to constant change.

The majority of the time, management was not very visible and when they were, they were more preoccupied with joking around than assisting the agents.

My co-workers were very helpful as we relied heavily on each other for assistance as management wasn't available more often than not.

The hardest part of the job was the inconsistency in the scheduling with constant changes. Shifts would be scheduled anywhere starting from 8 am and ending at midnight 7 days a week.
Pros
The atmosphere among colleagues
Cons
Scheduling and lack of support
