Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 11 February 2019
Horrible place to work. Management requires you to stay within 10 feet of your customer at all time and constantly up sell product that the customers do not want. They work off an up board so if a customer walks in to go to customer service that is your customer till they leave the store and you go to the bottom of the list and will have to wait till you are next on the list. If you work with a customer and they plan to come back to buy later you had best be there when they come back or another sales person will step in and finish the sale and take half of the commission.
You have a lot of free time to sit on a couch and wait for customers
Earned management (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 4 February 2019
The Management at the brick is all over the place, there was never a time I worked there and when I went in I felt like the management was getting something positive done. Constantly where they running around telling their employees to do something and then 10 minutes later have a different boss come in and tell you to drop what you're doing to go do there task, meanwhile boss #1 comes back and sees his task uncompleted and then takes repercussions out on you. DO NOT BE SUPRISED if one day you come in and they treat you like everything is fine and then fire you with 4 hours remaining on your shift.

Each Day meet with staff in both Dist/Fleet update on Company Events/Promotions, create a buzz. Planned Staff Events.. Staff recognition (Employee of the month/Anniverserys/ etc) Advise Staff of Corporate Updates. Importantly listen to all staff feed back and address any issues they may have.
Staff are great people employees treated poorly at times by some management
Csr (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 6 January 2019
I worked here for almost 3 months never had a complaint from a customer on me was never brought into the office regarding poor performance had a meeting with management to see where we were at at about the two and a half months mark and at that time all that was mentioned to me was that I needed to take initiative to find out more of what hasn't been done in the office that day when I come in because I didn't start at the beginning of the day and that I needed to make sure that my notes were up to date after that meeting I did exactly what was asked of me then two weeks after that I was fired when I asked for a reason I was told that I just wasn't a good fit the supervisor directly involved in my training was terrible she didn't train me for more than 2 days and the rest of the time she relied on the other staff working in customer service to train me and that was difficult because these other people have their own job to do it wasn't their responsibility to train it was the supervisors and in my opinion how well an employee is trained is directly a reflection of the quality of the supervisors ability to train they require you to take notes on all the different processes which I can understand it's a lot to remember make sense unfortunately they don't provide you with any notes or help you very much in creating these notes so how am I supposed to make notes on processes if I don't know what processes we do working at this location you weren't allowed to take a sick day unless somebody else in the office was willing to cover your shift otherwise you were told you had to comemore... in sick I experienced four occasions where my supervisor got into an argument and started yelling with a customer and as an employee I saw a way to rectify the situation without fighting but was unable to say anything because this is supposed to be the supervisor dealing with this an example but not so much and definitely not in an appropriate manner I think that the store manager is not aware of poorly the training program is here because I think he's being fed what he wants to hear and he's not around or able to watch enough as he has his own work to do I actually feel sorry for him because he's a really nice person I do not recommend working hereless
Poor training practices, listening to unhappy customers daily and not being allowed to take a day off when you're sick

CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 14 December 2018
There is no communication between managers is they are never on the same page. There is no proper training programs for new staff. Most sales consultants do not understand how extended warranties work for products and are sold incorrectly.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 13 December 2018
Loved the worked environment. Very chill and easily to get along with supervisors. Loved getting up and going to work everyday. Wasn't a very challenging job as I workout 4 times a week with heavy weights.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 14 November 2018
In the typical day in the customer service area was having at least an hour a day just getting yelled at and sales people making everything to extreme. The workplace was 98% male and had sexism and racism as i was not Punjabi and 97% of mu coworkers were. However, the rest of the girls behind the desk worked together to make the days go bye.
Half hour lunch
Most of the time i had to work through my lunch at my desk.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 14 November 2018
The place isnt bad to work at the work is decent like any other job in this category. The management is toxic and you get treated like absolute garbage and not like a human being. This location needs an undercover boss to see how the employees actually get treated it's that bad. They also try to get you to do unsafe work.
