Acquisition Pricing Analyst (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC8 February 2018
It's a great place to work. Professional and friendly people who are easy to get along with. I mostly had great managers that were flexible and supportive of my home life and quick to praise me when I did a good job. Upper management is approachable and strives to keep associates informed of company objectives and market performance. Continuous personal and professional improvement is encouraged with a tuition reimbursement program.

Fine job but management was garbage
Installer (Former Employee) –  Staples, ON5 May 2017
Work is easy enough and enjoyable but the installers end up paying for the management's poor planning and customer service. They also just laid off a bunch of people.

Very enjoyable company to work for, pays well, treats workers like they're very much needed
Shipper/Receiver/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB19 April 2017
Working for this company was great. Everybody was friendly and lighthearted, and the work was very worthwhile. I learned a lot about inventory control, how to use a wide variety of machinery, learned a lot about the distribution process, and the workplace itself felt great to be in. The hardest part of the job was trying to get everything done by a deadline during the busiest times of year (like back to school sales), but once the workday was done, you felt very accomplished.
Pros
Free lunches, overtime, easy to learn tasks
Cons
Some orders for customers were quite large and confusing
