    It was OK!

    Import Coordinator (Former Employee)
    Montreal, QC (Canada)

    ProsIt was experiencing a very high growth around that time
    Senior management was accepting to new ideas, and in generally careful to HR issues
    Industry-average compensation, good benefits compared to the industry

    ConsMid-management can be with different management philosophy, and senior management did not have enough tools or processes to identify and amend that
    extended hours of work very often in peak season, shipping periods
    Moderately high turnover due to industry practice

    Terrible business culture with questionable HR practices

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- learn how to make cheap clothing
    - on-site cafeteria and gym
    - some good people

    Cons- owners are never there and do not provide any leadership
    - COO makes Hitler look like Mother Teresa
    - low, low wages
    - no formal meetings, policies or procedures

    Advice to Senior Management- company needs a complete shake-up from the top down
    - culture within the company needs to charge or anyone who is any good will soon leave

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Company sucks!

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Montreal, QC (Canada)

    ProsIf you want to learn a way to make cheap clothes in low cost countries, this is the place. You can travel and meet all there suppliers. You can also see there tricks to importing the garments

    ConsThe boss is always playing golf, so he's never around. No formal meetings or management ever took place. Totally chaotic and disorganized. Always looking to put out one business related fire with another fire....bad environment with ZERO direction

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet some competent people to manage the company

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    UNSTABLE AND POOR HUMAN RESOURCE, UPPER MANAGEMENT

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Montreal, QC (Canada)

    ProsGreat place to learn fast and on your own.
    Always up to new projects and ideas.
    Nice new building, with gym and cafeteria with chef.

    ConsNo human resource.
    Poor upper management, little communication on decision makings and changes.
    Many turn-overs.
    No structure between departments allowing each employee to work their own way and adapting to each..

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease communication with employees, have more meetings on the direction and to bring the team together.
    Build a proper structure for each department to follow at no exception.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
