    I worked at Circus World Displays full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you are young and need experience you can climb the ranks quickly since turnover is so high.

    Cons

    micromanagement owners will lie and avoid paying wages/benefits you are entitled to owners can't get along you have no creative freedom or autonomy you will be written up if you are not at your desk at exactly 8:15 you will be required to work after hours with no OT. wages are low, they will try to lowball you when hiring hiring process is absurdly long and repetitive company is splitting apart currently, sales are falling because they are constantly trying to rehire processes require numerous approvals to get anything done which becomes frustrating over time decisions are made off the cuff with no real evidence or research owners will ask you to try to rip off third party partners/service providers and therefore you will be caught in the crossfire

    I have been working at Circus World Displays full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great opportunity for recent graduates to gain real experience in a fast paced environment. 815 to 5 with weekends off and a good benefits package. Lots of opportunity to grow within the company. If looking for a job in Niagara this is your bet. Annual performance reviews give you an idea of where you stand in the company as well as a pay increase. Often completed late, but back pay is given for every day missed. 2 monitors at workstation. May not seem like a big deal, but makes things so much easier

    Cons

    Very fast paced. Not everyone can handle it. Those who can't are let go (or quit shortly after being brought on) Productivity is taken very seriously. If you need time for facebook and personal email while you are supposed to be working this job is not for you. Pay is competitive, but sometimes managements expectations seem higher than your salary. Constant change and high turnover can make things difficult at times.
