    I have been working at The Source full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I started off as a Sales Associate and after a year and a half of working with the company got promoted into a Human Resource position. The Source really does want their employees to grow within the company. Starting off as a Sales Associate can lead to so many career opportunities.

    - Compensation/Benefits
    - Growth within the company
    - Recognition
    - New company values

    Cons

    Some people still think of The Source as Radioshack and therefore they think all The Sources in Canada are closing. When I was working in sales it was sometimes a bit difficult trying to explain to people we're not affiliated at all.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Source in October 2017.

    Interview

    The setting for the group interview was nice, it was held in a meeting room with 7-9 candidates. an HR specialist and a store manager came in as interviewers. The interview was roughly 2.5 hours long with a 15 minute break. Lots of situational and behavioural prompts and group activities resembling ones in a team building exercise.
