Fast but fair

Enjoyed my time with Sony as a contract HR Generalist. My boss was great and we recruited many staff. Sadly the project we worked on was cancelled due to changing consumer demand.

Subsidize lunch and free parking and relaxed environment to work in.

The best experience

Sony was a wonderful company and enjoyable place to work at. I would work for Sony in a heartbeat if given the opportunity. Employees were treated fairly and benefits were amazing.

Best Job Ever

You don't get hired by Sony , you get adopted by the global family. This role was my life's best achievement, and I will always be proud to be an ambassador for Sony. There is no company like it.

No room for growth

Zero chance of growing in this company, but what could you expect when all of the jobs available get taken from people who are coming from other departments closing because they have "more experience".

Overall great company, strong recognition in the industry

The canadian division was great working with great senior management, culture, life balance. However many layers of management diluted important ideas, concerns how to improve situations.

Enjoyed my time here

Nice call centre to work in. Great team of managers and peers during my time there. Nice building with a cafeteria offering breakfast, lunch and snacks at a cheap subsidized price. Employee store to buy Sony products at a discount.

sold electronics

sold electronics and received commission - worked with all men and training on new products and gadgets - items overpriced and customers didnt buy - did negotiate as much as possible

Fun place to work but management could be better.

There was a lack of communication between management and the staff, resulting in a real miscommunication of what is required. Management is located in another town and rarely came by the venue, so they were blissfully unaware of the practicalities of the job and what was required. Too little compensation for the amount of work to be done by one person.

closed down

Company is now closed down. Was a challenging job with lots of overtime. Long hours and fast paced production environment. Its a shame it closed down.

Review of National Product Manager, Presentation Display Systems

It was a good learing experience to learn the Professional Video Side of the business that became the base for my sales career in professional Audio Visual applications. I was able to learn about new technology in a different market space.

Pros

I learned a new Product Category as a Product Manager

Cons

There were several layers of Management and litte autonomy to do my job

Fun workplace

I enjoyed my time working there and learning about Cineplex. I was trained in various positions and was handling food a lot. I learned a lot about what goes on behind the scenes in movie theatres. It was a great first job to have.

It used to be a great gig

Difficult place to work when you have a boss that has favoritism for few people and your work is never exalted. It used to be a great place to work but once the US took over everything changed for the worse.

Pros

good products

Cons

low pay, upper management

No longer open stores were closed down

Was a great place to work back in the day. New and exciting electronics to sell. Management was a challenge to work with and commissioned sales floor caused some problems between sales staff occasionally.
