      OK Job.

      Pros

      1. The store manager is considerate when you need flexible working hours. 2. The owners order free lunch for everyone once a month.

      Cons

      1. The supervisors are rude and do not care about your welfare. 2. Favoritism. They'd cut down on my hours whilst everyone on my team gets full hours. I'd constantly be scheduled to close all week during very bitter winter nights. I complained once and was told "take it or leave it" 3. No clearly written contract. 6 months on the job and I found out some folks get extra benefits. 4. Poor compensation.

      Amazing Culture and Benefits

      Jul 21, 2021 - Senior Operations Manager in Calgary, AB
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great benefits and compensation with a very flexible remote working setup. They have gone above and beyond to give people options that work for them and we have the flexibility to choose what level of in-office vs remote works best for ourselves and for our teams. They reward employees that work hard, support advanced education (through compensation and paid time to learn in many cases), and have a lot of internal opportunities to grow your career.

      Cons

      Retail doesn't always compensate as good as other industries for doing equal work, but the benefits of working with a great culture outweigh the minor differences in salary from other industries.

      Standard Corporate environment but not the worst

      Jul 13, 2021 - Senior Data Developer in Toronto, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      > friendly, respectful and resourceful colleagues > living up to the big data reality and reporting needs > decent benefits and fair compensation given my situation (senior role though with only 1 year of experience)

      Cons

      > slow corporate environment, therefore slow to change > many chains of command and not total "red tapes", but "yellow tapes" (warning, probably won't get done) everywhere > people leaving is faster than people joining (during my time anyway), so burnout is fast and bound to happen
