    In the production room people are overworked and only paid minimum wage, not worth it.

    Pros

    Easier to leave job because positions are filled through agency.

    Cons

    Highly repetitious and in most cases very hard work. Employees are often pressured to work faster than physically possible, if not you get yelled at. Main supervisor of long standing only lives to yell and put employees down, has made employees cry in numerous circumstances. Very difficult to communicate if you don't know Spanish. Jobs are only available through agency with little to no benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a different supervisor that actually does her job instead of just yelling employees and does not destroy employee moral, and have more reasonable standards of what a production employee can physically do.

    Pros

    Flexibility on working hours, Good gratis, education and trainings held regularly, there would be lots of opportunities for this company corporately but you would need to move to another region in Canada. Probably TO

    Cons

    Not many opportunities to grow with the company (corporately) in Calgary, Not many benefits if your are a freelance artist,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I realize that sales are very important in a role like this, but find fun ways to motivate staff or get them involved in a brain storm session to see if they can come up with some ideas themselves and feel like they contributed and thus motivating them

    Re-consider what the company is spending money on so it can pay its workers market rate.

    Pros

    if some body is giving his/her efforts to build better business .it recognizes by the all superiors .

    Cons

    sometimes we get so much of paper work which i feel its not needed.like customer data we ordered to maintain it in five different formats .which can be seen by two formats.some of the procedure needs to be modified as per region.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    we can have a software which can have all details of customer details to sales to follow ups .every thing which we required in day to day business.
