"Good place to work"

Approves of CEO

Pros

Good company to work for, nice people all around, compatible benefit package and pension plan, have chance to take professional training.

Cons

Not easy to get promoted. Head office is in a small town. Promotions are a little haphazard (in job experience and work ethic not always a guarantee over less experienced and less qualified people)

Advice to Management

Most stores have very competent leadership and managers that genuinely care about their employees, but in some cases the management has a tendency to focus more on the job than the employee.

    Former Employee - A/R Accountant in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    In my specific job (A/R Accountant) everyone would leave by 4:30-5 so there was no pressure to stay after work to make a good impression. The job itself was quite simple. If you don't actually want lots to do and dont want to be soo busy all the time, which I didn't, this was a fairly decent place for that.

    Cons

    My specific temp supervisor was a bit annoying but she was new, apparently everyone was quite annoyed with her, and she sat next to me which made it difficult.

    Advice to Management

    More feedback would've been nice.
