      Toxic Environment, Beware!!

      Feb 11, 2020 - Human Resources in Mississauga, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Location of Mississauga office, large building, on-site cafeteria.

      Cons

      Toxic environment! Beware those of you who are considering a Human Resources position within this company. No basic training offered and your colleagues are eager for you to fail for their amusement. Worst company culture you will ever experience. Be prepared to work late nights and weekends- no work life balance. If you have another offer from any other company, take it and pass on this one...
