    Jun 17, 2016 - Customer Service Representative, Cashier in Mississauga, ON
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The management and staff were great to work with. Ample opportunity to learn, rewards for displaying great customer service skills, and overall healthy work culture that doesn't pick apart pennies as much as other corporations.

    Cons

    Database and inner organization not fully up to date or streamlined. Caused conflict with inventory, customers, and sometimes between staff. Still minimum wage and very difficult to get full-time with benefits.

    Pros

    I can't really think of a pro. But easy to get in I guess? They literally take anyone because people quit all the time

    Cons

    1. You can't learn anything other than doing oil change and tire change(80%tires) 2. You get paid minimum wage 3. Advisors will squeeze as many work orders as they can. 4. Worst manager, all they do is to abuse the apprentices to do all the stuffs.

    Pros

    Nice work environment as good ventilation

    Cons

    Terrible pay. Minimum wage how can anyone support themselves with this and expect you to be fully available all the time to suit them. Canadians stand up for your rights and dont accept low wages! You will end up as poor as the average American if you dont stand up for your rights to earn a living that covers the cost of living.

    Pros

    Online orders and warehouse work were quite enjoyable

    Cons

    - severely understaffed, at 17-18 i was being left to run multiple departments by myself while being paid student minimum wage - no acknowledgement towards value of employees - i made multiple sexual harassment claims against a coworker, nothing was done and any time i asked about it i was told to butt out because they were still “amid the investigation” - was forced to work the same shifts as the man who was harassing me despite asking numerous times if we could work opposite shifts whilst the investigation was being pursued - was booked 45hrs a week while listed as a part time employee, receiving no benefits as well as less pay - auto service desk workers were payed significantly less per hour than their counterparts at other locations

    Completely overworked, way too much workload for one minimum wage employee.

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Manager and Team Lead were great, and were flexible with my schedule.

    Cons

    Constantly belittled by upper management for not completing the work of three people in a shift. Staff that have been there for over 6 years make roughly $0.50 per hour more than minimum wage. Poor communication. Very outdated systems. Not enough staff for work required.
