I worked there as a hockey data entry specialist for about a year. The pay was pretty good for a student who only worked part time. However, as someone who worked there a year and wanted to be promoted to a higher up position, it was nearly impossible honestly despite having a really good record.

The job itself was pretty casual. It got a little stressful when you have to even live games, but luckily the time flew when you evented live games so that was a plus. But working 8 hours a day just recording data can get very tedious and annoying, which is when the higher-ups can become really annoying and not understanding whatsoever. Plus the bonuses were at times hard to achieve so sometimes you don't feel the need to push yourself.
Pros
Free unlimted coffee, pizza days, mcdonalds breakfast days, casual/friendly work environment, decent pay for students.
Cons
Work can get really repetitive and tedious, bonuses were terribly structured, internal promotions were to difficult to achieve.

This was an interesting place to work considering how video and analytics keeps growing in hockey. There really is not that much AI involved but it must be pretty obvious there is a human element to this job with all the hiring that goes on for eventing positions.

I worked here for 2 seasons and I really saw the dramatic shift in the company culture. I will not be returning to Sportlogiq after we had our state of the union video call this week. Its great that the company is going to start offering eventors benefits and sick days (never had these before) however with schedule restrictions pretty tight before, there is no way the schedule will be easier to manage with the company giving the eventors benefits.


As I heard from others, there really are two types of employee tiers. There are the 5th floor people who are the data analytics team, marketing, developers, etc. Then there are the 4th floor people which are the people who literally make the company go. We work on the games, all night, on weekends, no holiday break, working on provincial holidays. Thats fine to an extent because the job requires that but we get no respect from anyone upstairs. They fail to realize that if we dont do our job, they cannot do theirs. All we wanted was respect and to be treated better.


The best part about this place is the people you work directly with because they go through the same headaches as you. If I understood our meeting, they are removing the Learning and Development department. How are we going to know our performance without this department? It is interesting to see that

Lots of repeated promises that never materialize. Executive disconnected from the rest of the company. Decisions announced after they were made, not including anyone in the process.

I enjoyed working at SportLogiq very much, since it involved numerous small skills to ensure efficiency of data entry. Above all, its focus on sport made it that much more interesting.
Pros
Excellent comrodery
Cons
Late hours; difficult with school schedule

I have been working here for over 3 seasons now. This place used to have a great vibe was a great place to work. This all changed for this worse at the hiring of the new manager.

This lady is rude and talks down to everyone. She has a mentality that speed is all that matters and that what we do is easy. She puts very strict time constraints and talks to us like we are easily replaceable and is good at driving the morale into the ground. The biggest issue is she HAS NO IDEA HOW TO DO OUR JOB. She gives us all these orders and demands and expectations with no experience actually doing our job. She does nothing herself except over work her hard working senior talent here and be little and remind them how awful of a job they are doing. She just comes across as a mean old lady neighbour instead of a boss.


Next issue here is they have no compassion for you or your problems. If someone in your family passes away you better bring a picture of the obituary to prove that they died or it will go on your file. Next, They fired or drove away 3/4 of the senior talent here over petty stuff like being late. But then wonder why the quality has dropped after hiring a new batch of workers every 5 months. By doing this the quality of the product we are developing is dropping because of the new people and the learning curve here. If the company would treat its quality employees better and with respect perhaps they wouldn't quit and There would be a better product for the client instead of yelling at the whole office.


All of this to say that it all starts at the top and the

Stay away at all costs. As a Senior Data Analyst working at Sportlogiq, you are regarded as a number and not a human.

If you’re late past 5 minutes, warning.

Where do I begin. What a terrible place to work. Management is one of the most incompetent group of people I have ever worked for, especially after the previous manager is no longer with the company. He was the only thing holding the company together for success. The new manager is a complete imbecile with no personal or communication skills, which are pretty essential qualities for a manager.

If you like hockey, and actually LIKE to watch hockey, this is not the job for you, You will be scheduled starting usually late afternoon into the evening, frequently util 2AM. So there is absolutely no social life for you at this job, and forget watching the sport you love, which is what probably drove you to apply here in the first place. You will never see any of your friends, family, or even have the proper time to run errands unless you want to wake up 5 hours before your shift even starts just to be able to do some grocery shopping.


This company does not care about it's employees one bit. All they care about is trying to meet deadlines, which they NEVER do, and they do not care about the quality of the work. Half the time you are there you are correcting the mistakes of all the incompetent idiots they hired after getting rid of all the eventors who actually knew the sport and were good at the job. The entire day is a waste of time. They are way more concerned about speed over quality and correct work. And if you bring that up to them they will absolutely rip you a new one and tell you that it isn't your place to even be bringing it up in the first place.

SportLogiq a tout d'une compagnie prometteur. Cependant, l'administration est atroce envers ces employés les plys bas et il n'y a tout simplement aucun effort de compréhension si vous êtes étudiant. Cependant, les employés sont des gens formidables qui permet d'apprécier ce travail.

If you want to work for a company where job performance will actually make your life harder this is the place to be. Management takes advantage of better performing employees by locking them into the 6-2AM shift, and make absolutely no exceptions to this. You can kiss your social life goodbye because they couldn’t care less about you as an individual. School, personal problems and even deaths in the family come under scrutiny from HR and scheduling, as they well harass you for proof, no matter the personal turmoil unfolding in your life. Not only is there no salary premium for evening hours, the new “block system” that the new management team configured has created a chokehold on workflow, creating situations where you will be forced to work 90% of your shift before seeing a break, because there aren’t enough staff left in the office after the few lucky people who got into the day block leave for the day. It is common practice to create deadlines such that you will be forced to work without a break from 6PM-1AM, then they will force you to stay in the office till 2AM for your “break”.
The company is understaffed because the new management decided to terminate the contracts of over half their employees from the previous season. These all had almost nothing to do with their performance, but their attendance record, in accordance to the absolutely insane attendance rules that govern the office. The result? The office is understaffed and under experienced, senior staff is constantly being pushed to the brink to hit deadlines, because they are basically the only people keeping the

The company is divided in multiple offices - the main office with the salaried employees, and the "Data Entry" Office with hundreds of employees working for an hourly wage.

The company claims it tracks the analytics using AI when in reality it's done by hundreds of employees working in the Data Entry office.


Working in Data Entry at this company means you'll work terrible hours, with strict attendance guidelines, no benefits and no potential for career advancement - as you'll be using the company's special data application and not a real world application like Excel.


The Data Entry office runs on quantity over quality. Over the years, hundreds of employees have come and gone because of these work conditions. This employee turnover forces the Senior employees to train, and work with new hires constantly - making it harder to reach deadlines and for the company to perform optimally.


Management resolves everything in black and white. Regardless of your question or request - whatever is in your contract is the response you'll get from them.


The biggest pros about this job are:

- It's very easy to get hired (expect to work the night shift!)

- Pizza parties once every few months.

- With hundreds of employees, you're bound to meet some cool people.

You will be out into a 6-2 block where you'll have to say goodbye to your social life. Especially if your a student, this will be a very difficult job to balance ur schooling with. The management doesn't care. Since they let go of most of their experienced worker's and brought in a bunch of new people, it's obvious they care about quantity rather than quality. I'd stay away from this company.

Sportlogiq used to be an amazing place to work at for students, young adults and sports fans, but with the start of the 2019-2020 hockey season came changes to management and company policies, none of which have proven to be beneficial to the common worker.
The mere concept of flexible scheduling was thrown out the window when shift blocks were implemented. Those lucky enough to work the morning block only have to sacrifice their weekends, while those who end up with the 6PM-2AM block see their entire life outside of obliterated, making a mockery of the "work-life balance (really)" advertised on the Why Join Us tab of the company.

Management made the decision to wipe out half of the senior workforce during the offseason and replace them with new hires. They chose to hire quantity rather than quality, then were left puzzled when only a quarter of trainees were capable of performing to a satisfactory level. The workforce, approximately the same size as the year prior, only with less experience, is no longer able to meet deadlines as demand for the company's product increases. Rather than accept responsibility for their short-sighted actions, management chooses to deflect the blame onto the understaffed workforce, completely oblivious to the extra work senior employees are being forced to put it to make up for the absence of experience.

Moving up in the company is no easy feat. Management seems intent on dredging up anything they can from seasons past to keep experienced, well liked, hard working employees out of leadership roles, instead opting for new trainees who haven't

After obliterating over half the staff from last season and implementing terrible work protocols that slow down efficiency, management makes a point of blaming the entire staff for slow work, while senior employees receive zero recognition for the amount of extra work they have to do due to the lack of experience. It is common practice to promote trainees over experienced workers that have been working for the company for multiple years for incredibly thin reasons. Employees that are locked into terrible 6-2AM shifts, due to their new and terrible hour blocks, are paid the same amount as employees who only have to available from 9-5. These are a few of many major issues here.
This used to be a fun and easy going work environment, but changes in management have ruined it. This is not a fun place to work anymore

Work and life balance is very good because you can submit schedule requests and follow them. There is no work stress. You do what you need to do and leave. I think the salary is not bad.
It is a very friendly environment and if you like sports, it will be fun. Overall, I think management is good.

They just let you do the same task. Nothing new, and you will not learn new skills. No paid vaction. No sick days. If you have an emergency issue and not available to work maybe you will loss you job ! Not easy to have unpaid vacation. You may work until 2am ( this is normal). The break is unpaid. If you worked more than 6 h, you will have 15 min break.

They will tell you that you will have a flexible schedule but will not. No sick days and if you cancel your shift for an emergency issue your employment status will be affected. you can take 2 breaks 15 min for each only if you work more than 8 hours. sometimes they will ask you to work until 2 am.

The work itself is very fun if you like hockey, it gets a little repetitive though. Some iffy promotions being handed out and occasional nepotism didnt help. Anyone who made the slightest of waves had their hours dwindle down to nothing over the next couple of schedules. All in all they're in it to wring as much out of you, often to the detriment of their employees.

Working at sportlogiq is nothing special. you will constantly be given the same work assignments. so if you like a new challenge every day this isn't the place for you.
Work environment is great, lots of new friends to make. However management is a hit or miss. Some managers know how to lead people and sincerely try their best. Others don't care at all. But that is something every work has.

If you're looking for a job that has advancements, then this isn't the place for you. The reality is that they don't give promotions to those that are qualified, they give them to the people who work the most amount of hours. Like mentioned earlier, that is why you have some people in management that shouldn't really be there.
Pros
flexible hours, free coffee, nice co workers
Cons
repetitive work, management, advancement

SPORTLOGiQ claims to be a modern work environment with flexible hours, which is true for about 10% of the employees. The rest are overworked, understaffed and forced to work every single weekend day as well as most tuesday and thursday nights until 2 AM. There is no leniency with management, and promotions are given to those who work the most hours in a year, your qualifications mean nothing. What I will say is that the working culture is fun. You have great coworkers who are in the same position as you and the work isnt especially hard, just the long hours with nothing but grey walls to look at gets unbearable at times. If youre in the upper echelon of employees, you get food, drinks, flexible hours and an awesome work environment on the top floor. If you are not, you get grey walls, long hours with no flexibility, and sit on a bottom level floor with hundreds of other disgruntled employees. HR essentially pushes you under the rug when you have a concern, and management is people who essentially just worked more than other people and have little to no qualifications to be in the positions that they're in. Like I said, the ones who work with you are great - there are great employees at the company. However, management and owners are clueless about their staff and have created a divide between the common worker and the privileged upper-tier worker and it does not take long for the place to drain you. If you are applying for a top tier position, I highly recommend working here as it seems like an awesome place to work. If you are applying for a regular position, although it seems - more...
