Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Barrhaven, ON11 March 2019
Overall the work is pretty easy and the benefits are good. Pay is minimum wage with the possibility of a 50 cent raise per year. The biggest issue is the workers and work culture is very toxic. I've described working here as being similar to being in an abusive relationship, I'm sure you can figure out why once you've worker for this company.

Lots of loopholes to their system. Great coworkers though.
Part-Time Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON24 June 2019
Way too easy for customers to rip the price tag off and get their way into buying an item for a cheaper price.

You always have to be on the lookout for loss prevention.

Their scheduling system really sucked. It was always handed out in slips of paper. Emailing is easier and theres less chance to lose it.

It's super hard to get days off.

You get sick days and vacation pay though which is awesome.

A break every 2 hours which is really looking out for the employees.
Pros
Break every 2 hours, sick and vacation pay
Cons
On-call, CDC donations

Absolutely terrible
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK5 June 2019
Avoid this place like the plague, pay is only slightly above minimum wage, the work environment is dirty and dangerous and management is abusive and unfair. You're expected to work until you drop, and that's still not enough for them, people look like they want to die in production and management stares at you while you work, and if you make one slight mistake they'll yell at you. Very high turnover rate, you're just another number to them and you'll be treated as such. If you enjoyed being treated like human garbage from unfair management, this is the place for you.
