Great Atmosphere/Family like workplace/ Plenty of Work
Operations Administrator (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON18 May 2016
This a great place to work. The atmosphere here is positive, workers are really friendly and have patience for new employees learning their job. Almost every month there is a free lunch with some sort of theme to it (i.e wacky t-shirt day). There is a ping-pong table where employees can play. They even hold ping-pong tournaments and the winner wins a prize!
The wage is decent, easy access using TTC (2 bus routes you can use), there is plenty of work and overtime if you choose to work it, the company is up to date on their healthy safety initiative and the President comes down almost every morning to greet each worker personally.
Pros
Decent Wage, Great Management/Workers (work as a team), Plenty of business, Great "social" aspect to the company
Cons
Benefits could use a upgrade, computer program they use can be tricky to learn
