Product Manager (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 23 May 2016
Ronco has a fast pace work environment where deadlines need to be constantly met. The people there are good professionals who make the company what it is today. The company definitely has potential and will continue to grow.
National Sales Manager - Canada (Former Employee) – Concord, ON – 31 May 2018
Look at the section on people who found the 'positive' review helpful. As of the time of this review, that a more accurate depiction of of the company.
There are good people there for sure!
There is multiple disjointed project people have to do. This will mean low work/life balance. As a manager will likely have to clock in- and clock out like a warehouse worker. Your salary will be $10-15k lower than industry average. This company is a sole proprietorship eager to be 'corporate' so expect extreme hands-on involvement wherever you are used to having some creative latitude- you will be vetoed, repeatedly.
This is not a scathing review, but preparing your mind for what to expect will let you use Ronco while Ronco uses you. Otherwise, you could be in for disappointment and frustration.
Company group benefits is very poor. Absolutely, no RRSP matching funds. Inflation based Salary increments do not exist there.
You will likely be expected to do some janitorial work even if you work in the office. Company expects its non-janitorial employees to rotate toilet maintenance. It may have changed but ask them about this during your interview!
Will likely employ you if you reduce your asking price
low pay, low work/life balance, for a sole-prop there deceptively stifled room for creativity
Purchasing officer (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 4 March 2014
starting a day with auto gerated reports from system. i have learned to read the numbers and identify what product lines need to be looked after within the day. plan purchasing orders for oversea shipments. and looking for domestic source for temperary substitutions. company management being very helpful and understanding, purchasing officer has enough authority to issue orders and make actions in assigned catagories. colleagues are friendly and communication being frankly and productive. the hard part of the job is being a retail field. forecast for over half an year to factories is quiet challenge. and most enjoyable part is also unknown area and whole team with no retain on ideas to make the projects getting done within budget and time frame.
