No advancement in this company!
There are a lot of employees that have been working for this company, at least 20 years. There is a very close knit culture, where these employees go out together for lunches, celebrate each others bday etc. If you are a new employee, its very hard to break into this group, and you can feel like an outsider. This group has heavy politics, and after awhile they will most likely lay you off, and later find out that they already hired someone to replace you (usually a friend, or a relative of someone who has already worked there for a long time). There hiring and laying off people is so unfair. Human resources is a joke, they never get involved on the production floor, they don't care about health and safety, and they don't give you performance reviews, or talk to employees. Lead hand supervisors and managers call the shots on the floor, and do what they feel like. I heard of the rude language used on the floor, and employees not allowed to voice their concerns. Overall no point applying for this company, you'll put your hard work in, wont get recognized, and if you happen to survive 2 years and have a pleasant time, you most likely will come to work one day, and be surprised with a layoff letter offered to you. Restructuring is usually the excuse they use, when its just to get you out the door to workplace politics!
Pros
close to my home
Cons
bad work culture

Toxic smell and work conditions
This company is laid back because they don’t know what their doing. Dysfunctional management doesn’t help things either. Mandarin speaking people talk too loudly to concentrate. Managers micromanage and don’t let you do what you need to get done. Misleading job posting, what you get hired for isn’t what you’ll end up doing. You’ll waste you time as no one takes meetings seriously and other people’s time

Fast workplace that taught me to how to handle multiple tasks at once.
A typical day at work would be that I would come in and first start off by making cardboard boxes and then eventually as the candles would arrive from the belt, I would package them into the boxes. I would even guide new workers and help them in their positions as well. I learned how to manage multiple tasks at once without folding under pressure.

Factory worker
I’m just laughing at the reviews here! I’ve worked at this company for a long time! They treat like animals , there’s no free coffee, the management doesn’t listen to a word you say ! There’s only 3 breaks first for 15 mins , then lunch and last one Is only 10 mins long . You’re working like a slave , very fast pace . They have the lines running at a crazy amount of speed because they want to make the customer happy and get a high amount of product out so they can keep the product but the product is mostly bad ! The labels aren’t perfect , low wax fill , 2 wicks when there suppose to be 3 . I’ve worked at a lot companies and this by far is the worse . No benefits , no raise ! It’s a slave house ! If your looking for something long term please don’t work here , trust me ! The line leaders aren’t the best either ! There’s one line leader that will just yell in your face and curse you out if you do a mistake ! Please stay away from this place it’s a dump !!!!

Good Company but language barrier as mostly Mandarin speaking
The training should be long and there should be encouragement from management and guidance too how to grasp quickly and permanently so that the person is able to work there for a reasonable amount of time.
Cons
Coordinating with China

Small firm with no other focus than to maintain clients.
The concept and sale of candles being seasonal the comapny tends to hire verry less people and depends highly on staffing solutions. This in the end affects overall quality.

not a great place
Lack of professionalism . In busy season lots of hours. Expectations of job high but lack of training. Favouritism of certain cultures. Lunch and break times not properly managed. There are good people there and enjoyed working with them. Not an ideal company to work if you have good experience as you will be intimidated and picked on not to succeed. Would not recommend to work here.
Pros
Free product at Christmas
Cons
no benefits... no support from management
