    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.

    Pros

    No Micro Management Sincere supervisors who care both about your work/personal life Team based organization Open lines of communication between departments No Information Silos 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

    Big company wih some perks (cheaper auto parts, etc.) and they have an array of locations. HQ is in Boucherville QC. Very useful for people wanting to avoid the commute to Montreal. My manager was good, but many people criticized decisions of higher management. I can't really comment on these since I was not high enough in the company ... but at my level, I was not affected by these 'bad decisions'. I liked my experience and it allowed me to gain a lot of new skills I can now apply in my career. Would recommend this company to job seekers! Co-workers are very helpful and ressourceful if you need help or have questions regarding new applicaions (softwares) or etc.

    Cons

    Some people were critical of higher management and their 'bad decisions'. At my level in he company (very low! lol), I couldn't not really see the impact of these decisions nor could I say if they were right or wrong. However, that many complaints from co-workers can become tiring and repetitive. Lunches wih my manager and one of her friends were basically just ranting sessions about management. From my end, I don't really have any other feedback. My experience was overall very good and as I mentioned, I was able to learn a few new things at the company, which is a great plus.

    Advice to Management

    Does not apply.

    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.
