      Benefits and pay are outstanding... you are encouraged to treat your job as if it’s your business. They do try to balance work and home life with additional vacation buy time as well as heritage holidays to use at your discretion. Their are no retail blackout days and you receive the day before/after Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years off. Their social giving is hands down one of the best!


      The training is sketchy at best when you start so you have to be comfortable going in blind. At times you feel like more of a glorified stocker for the major stores. To move up you have to be willing to relocate which impedes on family if you have children. It also seems like you have to be younger to be considered for promotion. They leave a lot of talent at the door due to this. I also have travel and a ton of drive time which can be tiring. Especially when you loose the drive time if you aren’t on an overnight.

        Great people to work with. Benefits are good and pay.


        Work a lot!!!! Not a good balance of work and family life. Have most holidays off, but not always guaranteed to get them off depending on what line you work on.

      If employers are shopping cheap, should we just apply for roles that we're less qualified for?

      I had an interview late August, sent a thank you the same day, followed up when they said they would get back to me, and then again a week later and I got no response. I gave up and they just sent me an email saying the position was on hold and they hoped to have an update at the end of the week. I'd still like to see what they might offer me so what could I say in response?

      Have you ever been asked by a recruiter to sign an nda before they can speak to you about a job they're recruiting you for? Mind you they reached out to me
