Great place
Inventory Management Official (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON15 October 2018
A great place to work because of the individuals who work there. People treat each other and especially their customers with respect and the warehouse management team is excellent.

Miss Management
N/A (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC4 July 2018
Work is good. Co-workers are nice to each other but Big Bosses and Management NEVER listens to small employees or new ideas or meet people in person. No appreciation, No rewards. Just same lines all the time "WE are working on this; will definitely think about you" Think when???

Double standards when it comes to treating employees. (Vancouver Branch) not sure about other side. Just keeping 3-4 people happy so that show keeps on running as turn around rate is very high. (That's not right way of doing business)

Overall, NO GROWTH. You end up working over time to make what you want to. (which is temporary as OT is not guaranteed)

Due to wrong approach; they have lost too much business in last few years. Hope they recover quick.

Overall; I'll recommend that if you want to Grow; then do not join this company. Growth happens only when many people leave and to save rest; those left one's are promoted.
Pros
Good Co-workers (lower level)
Cons
Malfunctioning Upper Management, Lower Pay rates, No utilization of proper talent, No Growth, No appreciation

Good job security , good pay and good people. They are very busy so you have to be ready to work hard, but you will be rewarded for all your hard work. The owners are very smart and passionate. Lots of career advancement.

CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC7 September 2017
Very unhealthy environment to work in, the coworkers make it possible to get through the day, but management is absolutely horrid to work for and yes no raises everrrrr... the management keeps promising and lying about giving raises but they never do. And times they have their favourites and they quietly give raises to those and tell them to lie as the company has been in losses for years 🙄
Pros
Good benefits
