Excellent Company to work for.
OUTSIDE SALES REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) –  Waterdown, ON18 February 2018
I look forward going to work. Check to see if orders ready and notify customer's shipments on-route. Management in the store and employees work as a team. Help and solutions are always arranged.
Then I go on the road to see potential new customers. This is, the most enjoyable part of my job, especially taken on new clients.
Pros
I set my own schedule.
Cons
Non Cons based on my position as Outside Sales person.

Ever changing, requires adaptive approach.
Night Crew/Receiving & Stock (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 February 2018
Stock changes seasonally, requires attention to details to provide best customer shopping experience. Generally, a fairly laid-back approach to customer service. Employees need to be familiar with the products they represent to aid customer purchasing choices.
Pros
flexible work schedules, great for college students needing limited days
Cons
Can be stressful. Some heavy lifting may be required.
