Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON5 January 2019
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 !!!!

Small firm with no other focus than to maintain clients.
Production Lead Hand (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON19 July 2017
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
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON31 January 2017
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
