    I have been working at The North West Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Housing, subsidized food, health benefits and bonus potential. Adventure and working with a diversed employee culture. Challenging work that can lead to further opportunities with in the company.

    Cons

    Not always a balanced work/life ratio as managers end up covering other employees shifts. Difficult to hire, train and retain employees in some of the remote communities as they have no desire to learn or work.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all managers equally. Listen to their concerns regarding their store and the community they serve
