Terrible management with no vision or culture.

Delivery Services (Current Employee)
Mississauga, ON (Canada)

Pros-The pay is OK.
-Sadly that is it.
-New CEO may change this disaster around enough.

Cons-Too much work.
-Management simply evolves from lower level positions throughout the years.
-Absolutely zero leadership.

Advice to Senior ManagementFire most of yourselves as you are essentially incompetent. Stop simply promoting internally. Hire talent from outside the company with valid credentials and leadership skills. The culture (if there is any) that currently exists in the company is 'do you job good enough to get by'. Almost no one in the company wants the company to succeed, all they want is to stay under the radar and keep the pay coming. This ranges from front-line worker to middle management. The upper management is stale, very stale. These people have been with the company for 30 years and simply do not have sweet clue about how to manage and run a business.

I hope that Mr. Gregson realizes that the people that are surrounding him are incompetent and changes the situation around.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at The Brick


    Pros: Vacation time is offered immediately, benefits are adequate but no… Cons: Hours are awful, expect to work all holidays, all weekends. Pay structure is unfair. Supervisors support only top money makers. No room for advancement due… Advice to Senior Management: Hourly wage should be increased. Upper management should have more expirience on the sales floor,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
