    I have been working at Watson Gloves full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strong sales growth and cash position. Leadership team is young, aggressive and hard working. Proudly Canadian company that still manufactures in Canada. I started with the company almost 17 years ago and I am still challenged and excited to go to work. The Moore Family that owns Watson is committed to its people and the community. Our culture is Strong... 100 years and running.

    Cons

    We aren’t perfect but the leadership team has learned to admit that and talk openly about our flaws. This will make us stronger as a team heading into our next 100 years.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to bring talent into the business. Give your leadership to the autonomy to make decisions. Stick to what you do best. Hire people that will live the company’s core values.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Watson Gloves (Burnaby, BC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    It was stupid, informal, unprofessional, asked unrelated personal questions that should've been red flags for me to walk out the door.
    But I really needed a job and still do now
