    Former Employee - Electronics Technician in Saskatoon, SK (Canada)

    I worked at Long & McQuade Limited full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Management sincerely cared for employees. Good working environment. Freedom to manage work yourself. Good tools. Great customers. I was and am thankful for the job with these great folks.

    Cons

    Low wage for required level of education, skill and experience. As hourly, no reward for working hard and really producing. Expectations did rise somewhat with no change in wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the technician to percentage of revenue portion of wage to encourage continued high production.
