    AWESOME!

    Department Sales Manager (Former Employee) Calgary, AB (Canada)

    ProsMake so many good friends, while getting paid great and lots of strong career opportunities. The culture here is of a family mentality, so while you do work for your own commission it is still completely a team atmosphere!

    ConsWorking every single Sunday of your life. If you are a sports fan, or family man then this is not the day you want to be working always. Just isn't fair. Other then that there is not many cons at all!

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow more weekends off for staff via taking turns or whatever so not everyone HAS to work the busy time. Nice to get a relief sometimes.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company

    Product Expert (Current Employee) St. Catharines, ON (Canada)

    Prosit is a competitive and dynamic environment, very fun for people who enjoy that. You get paid on comission so the harder you work the more you make.

    ConsIf you do not work hard the most you can hope to make is minimum wage.

    Advice to Senior Managementkeep on keepin on em

    Positive environment to work in, with good opportunities for growth.

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Richmond, BC (Canada)

    ProsThe limitations of this review pertains to the retail location that I worked for, but it should give one a good idea of what it could be like:
    - Nurturing environment with great staff who are content with what they are hired to do
    - Opportunities for growth and expansion of skills
    - Great discounts on a variety of products

    ConsStill uses a commission system to motivate employees. In my opinion, this can create a more aggressive environment for both customers and staff to meet quotas and increasing bonus pay.
