    I have been working at RobotShop full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Strong Culture
    - Great Team
    - Recognition from upper management and teammates
    - Group Activities, lunch, and more paid by company
     -Profit Sharing
    - High Salary raise (higher then National Average)
    - Yearly bonus (christmas gift)
    - Many opportunities to grow as a person and within the company
    Working at RobotShop does not feel like working, we are part of something bigger and we all work together with that in mind. It is motivating to work with the best and learn new things everyday.

    Cons

    Cannot think of cons except that it is hard to be the best and that brought some changes to the employees at RobotShop. Unfortunately, some were let go however it was and is always for the best for the company and we are now a better team then we have ever been!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    -Great atmosphere and motivation
    -Salary increase has been higher than the national average
    -3 weeks vacation after 3 years instead of 5

    I worked at RobotShop full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    E-commerce dynamique avec des bonnes activités sociales. Horaires variables et bon salaire avec avantages sociaux. Généreux avec les employés.

    Cons

    Quand j'ai travaillé pour RobotShop il y'a eu énormément de mise à pied. La raison, il faut vivre dans une culture d'entreprise très stricte et un pas de travers ou une légère baisse de performance suffit à se faire licencier. Mario, le CEO est a la fois la force et la faiblesse de l'entreprise. Il est le leader et la discipline de cette entreprise intéressante mais il est aussi celui qui peut licencier un employé d'expérience à RobotShop sur un coup de tête. Quand je suis arrivé, J'avais été étonné du peu d'ancienneté des employés considérant le nombre d'années de l'entreprise. J'ai compris plus tard bien entendu.

    Advice to Management

    Que Mario s'occupe des affaires opérationnelles dans un département et ainsi quitte son poste de CEO comme il le disait lui même. Ainsi la gestion des employés restera la charge des superviseurs respectifs. Cela diminuera la pression et l'ambiance de peur des employés.

    I have been working at RobotShop full-time

    Pros

    - Possibilités d'avancement
    - Ambiance générale hyper positive
    - Tout le monde porte la compagnie sur ses épaules
    - Activités sociales
    - Heures flexibles
    Et plusieurs autres avantages. Pour quelqu'un qui aime la technologie, c'est le paradis!

    Cons

    Pas vraiment d'inconvénients à noter. Nous sommes là pour travailler et c'est tout à fait normal. On est amplement récompensé. Pour avoir travailler dans d'autres compagnies avant, nous sommes vraiment bien ici.

    Advice to Management

    Continuer le bon travail! Aucune compagnie n'est parfaite mais vous apprenez et travailler très fort pour que nous puissions garder notre bel environnement.
