I worked at Jaytex Group full-time
-Learn a lot quickly - minimal training for all roles which means employees are left to figure out their tasks and responsibilities on their own.
-Small and privately owned company - a lot of opportunity to try to learn what you can from management.
-Many mid-level and entry-level employees are positive, helpful, kind, and knowledgeable.
-Do not expect a fair or competitive salary
-Upper management does not prioritize employee happiness or satisfaction
-Not progressive - no flexibility when it comes to hours, very few employee benefits, negative work culture, and bare minimum vacation time
-Many employees have strengths and abilities that are never expanded upon
-Most employees are overworked and stressed due to lack of fair work distribution
-Upper management tends to place blame and point fingers in every direction but their own if something goes wrong or needs improvement
-Great deal of nepotism (which is hugely disappointing especially when there are other employees or potential hires with better experience and knowledge)
Advice to Management
Management does not care to listen to advice, so I won’t waste time here.
I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Jaytex Group (North York, ON (Canada)) in July 2017.
Super easy. Just asked about school experience and any past work experience if you have any (doesn't matter if its related or not). Just had to relate any skills that might be applied to this position like multitasking and being organized. The only thing they really wanted to know was if you had basic skills in Illustrator or Photoshop. They also gave me a chance to ask them questions as well. Very basic interview, just google some interview questions and tips online and you'll be okay because its not hard at all.
