    Team based organization
    Open lines of communication between departments

    Employees who care about the overall well-being of the company and want it to genuinely succeed

    Cons

    I had encountered no negative experiences with the company

    Advice to Management

    The future is e-commerce. Devise a strategy to enter the space without angering customers otherwise growth will be limited. The infrastructure is already set in stone, the execution plan is the only thing that needs to be developed.

    Pros

    Very flexible employer, a great place to grow. Good culture and a fun environment. Management is open to feedback and not afraid to try new ideas.

    Cons

    The company has many irons in the fire and it's not always clear what's most important.

    Advice to Management

    Work to set clear priorities. It's easy to get time off when needed and the company is good with extra curricular activities.

    Pros

    The individuals and customers that make up the Uni-Select network are amazing.
    The daily work was satisfying and challenging.

    Cons

    Communication from upper management down to employees was mediocre. The rumor mill would inform employees of company changes weeks before upper management would; this lead to good employees leaving due to the fear of company changes before upper management could explain happenings.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with employees regarding changes. Don't leave unqualified or underperforming employees in positions just because they have been with the company for a long time.

  9. Great company to work for.

    Pros

    Friendly bosses and staff with great attitude and generally understanding on personal situations. The bosses work hard and seem to have us in mind and allow a lot of opportunities but seem a little too relaxed with firing staff.

    Cons

    The only cons are that some of the workers have some issues with hygiene and soberness. and that they pay is quite low.

  11. Was a nice place to work.
