    I have been working at HERSCHEL SUPPLY COMPANY full-time

    Pros

    Company culture, it's a fun place to work as everyone is friends. The company is small enough still to be involved in a lot of different departments. Not a corporate culture at all. Also because it is small there are new challenges everyday, some people thrive in this, I like the fact that it's not monotonous. There are so many ways to explore and grow.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a consistent job where you do the same thing over and over this place is not for you. Also it is not structured like a corporation, so if you are looking for that it's not here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue looking for the best creative talent and people that are hungry for growth. I would tell people up front that this place moves fast, and if you enjoy an ever quacking pace then this is for you.

    I have been working at HERSCHEL SUPPLY COMPANY full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Energetic workforce that is generally very positive and encouraging (think the opposite of a draining workplace). -Pays on time - a lot of people think this is a given but you'll be surprised how bad other employers are about this. -Opportunity to rise as it's a growing company that is expanding organically. There isn't a lot of formal career progression mapped out, but I know they're working to fix this quickly.

    Cons

    -Being a younger company, some areas/depts don't have as much structure. However in other ways this is a positive (more flexibility, less red tape, more opportunity to craft your own change).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The company has grown rapidly and will start to plateau. This is where your resolve to run a stable ship will be valuable... also don't try to take the company!

    Pros

    – Had an amazing team and manager – Great company events that involve the whole company – Good salary – Fast–paced with interesting variety of projects

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring people that are passionate in their skillset and ensure they are compensated for what they are worth! These people will work hard for the company's continued success.

    I have been working at HERSCHEL SUPPLY COMPANY full-time

    Pros

    I don't understand some of the negative views of herschel supply here. It may be due to the lack of previous experience in other workplaces. But what I would say, from working in many environments is that this is by far the most fast-paced, challenging, engaging, and dynamic place you can be to hone your skill set and grow your career. Major pro is the fact that no two days will ever be the same, if you are looking...

    Cons

    Fast moving environments tend to come with process and communication issues. This is a symptom of the explosive growth, but with each month things tend to tighten up, trying to catch up to global growth. As a start-up type of environment, with it comes a lack of HR and leadership type of programs or training you many get from some larger organizations. As some others have stated, parking is tight and I would...

    Advice to Management

    Firstly, thank you for the amazing company you have created. secondly, Invest in your people and your people will invest in you. There are some unbelievable talents at all levels in the company, these talents need to be inspired retained with programs and career growth opportunities.

    Pros

    When I read people's reviews saying there are no pro's to working here, it really makes me think that they are not giving a fair review. The benefits, growth opportunities, perks I have received in my time working here are above and beyond. Pros: -Start up mindset, everything can always be improved and innovated. -Working for a company that is genuinely passionate about the products they are creating -The power...

    Cons

    The company seem to be growing continuously so there are slight growing pains as far as communication (the office is on two floors so sometimes there can be a slight disconnect between the two). This has already been addressed at town hall meetings and I feel pretty confident that people are actively working to make that better. The office is also in Railtown in the same building as Aritzia which is fun, but not...

    Advice to Management

    Remain passionate about what you are doing, as it is contagious for those who work around you! Continue to make efforts to improve communication between the two floors.

    I have been working at HERSCHEL SUPPLY COMPANY full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I am very fortunate to have the Best Manager I have had in all my working years. Very supportive, always able to have a laugh or two or three each day. Completley different atmosphere than any other place I have worked....fast paced, casual & mostly very friendly co-workers (will always get a few co-workers that you could really do without seeing on a daily basis)....Get paid every other Friday and pay cheques don't bounce...

    Cons

    I think the only con is the location of the offices......Downtown east-side with lots of homeless people, drug users, needles, garbage etc etc to get from where my bus drops me off.....not a pleasant walk to & from Transit each day....really need a car to get here but lack of parking is a problem.

    Advice to Management

    I think the compensation could be higher.....Herschel seems to be doing very well $$$ and I would think that Management should recognize the contributions of staff that enable Herschel to get $$$$$

    Hi! Thanks for your review! We have just reserved some parking spaces at a nearby lot - this should help with the parking issues :)
