    I have been working at WDNA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Discounts on wireless, cable, internet plans...etc.
    Discounts on smart phones.
    Some of the head office staff are really friendly and cool.
    Get valuable work experience in the telecommunications industry.

    Cons

    3+ years of working and have never gotten a raise or performance review.
    High turnover rate.
    No mission statement or unified goal/brand.
    Not accessible easily by public transit.
    Strict 9-5 hours at head office, very rigid, no flexibility, even if you have to travel across a few cities just to get to work.
    Most of the staff are Indian/Muslim, which means you need to be prepared to eat a lot of Halal and/or Vegetarian food for staff lunches/dinners/get togethers.
    If you're not sales, you're not really valued. If you're not sales, incentives are few and far between.
    No Christmas bonus in 2016 even though the company hit all targets for the first time in my time working there.

    Advice to Management

    Should pay attention to staff more. Rewards should be in place for head office staff as well as the sales floor staff. I've never really felt valued as a non-sales related employee there.

    I have been working at WDNA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of blame games at the company

    Outcome is always is the owners fault

    Employees are always in their toes guessing if they will still have a job the next day

    Cons

    No performance reviews
    No salary review in the last five years
    Do not expect any perks without any strings attached
    Owners are ostriches they have their head stuck in the sand for the last 15 years
    Employees are just a disposable commodity

    Advice to Management

    Wake up to the Canadian Non-Halal country
    Let your conscious make decisions
    Oops sorry Al Gangani and Ali Gangani do not have one Or is Circumsized

    Pros

    None, other that the hope Rogers shuts this Horrible company down, and all the good people working for these 2 horrible brothers get out before they lose all their self esteem.

    Cons

    Being watched on cameras by owners.
    Being trolled on social media by owners.
    No growth opportunity.
    Not a company that respects women.
    Head office always changing people.
    No Future

    Advice to Management

    Leave your store staff alone, let them do their job! Pay commissions without so many hurdles. Get out of Retail...you don't understand or respect the little people that make you $$$$$$

    I worked at WDNA full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits were okay, some other employees were really great people to be around and work with

    Cons

    Owners are hard to work for and be around. Very indecisive, constantly changing their minds and ordering you around to change everything you're doing all the time. The owners are also not nice people to work for, very condescending and can be pretty rude.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better! Trust them to do the jobs you hired them to do and provide them with the tools to do it.

    Pros

    Valued fellow employees for their skill, hard work, and efficiency.

    Cons

    Almost all stores have under-trained management. There is no incentive, or encouragement from store management, nor head office. When owners visit store to store, one in particular will give unethical advice, make fun of others, discourage employees. They don't take input from staff, and have a terrible pay structure as well. Paying out spiffs, and commission is always late, and/or, underpaid. Head office staff in charge of payroll, HR, etc. never respond right away/on time, but instead will prolong every single issue with endless excuses. Last but not least, like almost every single other review on the company, i'd like to add, their targets are completely unattainable. They blame "Fido/Rogers" by saying they provide these targets. They have unrealistic goals, for example in a store that has 5 employees, and has traffic/movement of about 10/15 people a day (mostly being bill payments) they expect you to achieve around 20/30 NEW activation's, and would furthermore punish you if you did not hit the STORE target by decreasing the already low paid % of commission for sales.

    Advice to Management

    Have better communication with the sales staff that is literally running your business. The hard work, time, and skill that is put forth by many of the employees is always unappreciated. Store targets should only change the MANAGERS bonus, the sales staff should not lose in already low paid % commission. PAY YOUR STAFF WHAT THEY EARN.. ALL OF IT. Show more encouragement, and appreciation and guaranteed you'll get a better response. I'd also like to add lastly, Ali Gangani is definitely on the right track with his business, but his partner Alnoor, he needs to really gain some business sense/knowledge.

    Pros

    It's a Good experience for selling Rogers of fido products. Good for entry level. If you're new to the industry you will learn about the products and services

    Cons

    Management not good, too much stress for little pay. Manat times commission not paid up to the actual amount. Will not recommend for long time

    Advice to Management

    Please take time to understand the corporate environment in actual organizations and don't hire your relatives who don't know anything about management.
