    Pros

    The saying "the more you know, the more you grow" holds true for Canteen. They challenge you to excel in your current position, while giving you the tools to grow into other positions. Good benefits (medical, dental, etc) and good perks (car, computer, etc).

    Cons

    Culture - at times it is hard for new employees to mesh well with veteran employees. Also, as the company adds business, trying to balance the extra responsibilities can be overwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    More warehouse space

    I am sorry to hear we have not met your hour or pay expectations. This position is part time however we do have many full time positions that would provide you more hours and a greater opportunity... More

    I have been working at Canteen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Highly Supportive Team.
    Huge Inventory of Products to promote and sell.
    Respectful and Fair Management.
    Great support staff.
    Everyone is friendly and helpful
    Strong Market Performer and great Brand Recognition.

    Cons

    Sometimes very early hours (3am).
    Sometimes very long days (10-12 hours).
    Working through Channel Partners can be cumbersome and slow to respond to client needs. Training could be a little better.

    Advice to Management

    Change almost nothing. Continue to treat us as mature individuals as the professionals you hired us to be. Continue with meetings only as needed, not on a weekly basis. Continue to minimize daily activity reporting. Offer a little more training on database management systems so we can be more proficient at analyzing customer needs, placing orders and reviewing usage history. Inform us when a channel partner will be coming into our facility. That would help us know what's going on in the office.
