Restructuring and sinking
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 3 June 2018
Company is restructuring Canada-wide at all levels. Centralisation of many services, downsizing therefore many layoffs. HR very efficient in that area, but not much help for people still there; no support and low moral. Many memos & posters trying to say the company cares. Seems employees are just disposable, nothing done to keep good ones. Management has no onboarding/training program for new employees, when they do hire. A workstation, access to the system and then you're pretty much on your own.
Restructuring confused; lots of changes by management hard to follow. Employees are not sure what is expected of them, only to have increased workload due to layoffs and leave of absence.
Many individuals in middle management totally unprofessional; advantage of being part of ol'boys club.
Great salaries for special trades, good package benefits which few companies can offer.
No pay increase for years, bonus system was canned for anyone not in management. Advice for potential candidates: ask top $$ for base salary because that's what you get for the next 4 yrs+.
Work area in offices(Mtl area) lack upkeep; looks like no renos since decades. Old paint, stained and filthy, patched up carpets. :-(
From all this it looks like a company in trouble.
Benefits package, wide range of products
Long hrs, no work-family balance, ol'boys club
