Sales Associate in Ottawa, ON

I wouldn’t recommend working here at all they do not value their workers at all.
Not a good place to work at long term. Often times they would mistreat their employees and be extremely rude towards people over a simple humanly mistake.

Stressful work environment
Favouritism is their policy. If the boss likes you, you are the best even if you do your day-to-day tasks. The finance team is not cooperative and the high management doesn't care about people. They pay well but I think they need a deep change in their management mindset and managers.I wonder if they didn't notice the high turnover rate which cost them money but who cares.

Anyone who isn't management, isn't important.
*if you upset managment in any way, you will be gone, don't question, just do it.* you pay union dues to a union that ignores you* management treats you like you are one of the clients that access the services, not as a team member*good people to work with for the most part, kind of a high school, cliquey atmosphere*not nearly enough pay for the work involved*huge communication disconnect between housekeeping staff and managment (you are a non-entity if you aren't managment)

Great place to work
Loved my job and the people I worked with. Not everything was perfect but the good well outweighs the negative . The only real issue as a manager was the process of you reached the point where you didn’t think someone was a good fit for the job. And is this really a bad thing? Avoids unfair termination for sure.
