      Pros

      Company provides you great platform to grow,

      Cons

      the work culture is toxic . it is a owner operated business and sometimes it feels like the owner is in some sort of bubble, every single process has to go to owner for approvals. this makes business decisions time consuming. especially in a retail company which is a fast paced environment.

      Good work environment, nice management. Head office makes work harder.

      Pros

      Great work environment overall, coworkers and management always are pleasant to be around. Helping customers build and select parts is always fulfilling and rewarding personally.

      Cons

      Head office always is changing something, most of the time for the worse. Puts a lot of stress on management and that trickles down to employees.

      Pros

      The best thing at Canada computers is your coworkers are incredible individuals and on some occasions if you're lucky you'll get a great manager.

      Cons

      Overall headquarters management and the way they do their operations is not only Shady but over all does not benefit the employees that don't work at HQ.

      Pros

      The discount is kinda nice, depending on what you’re looking to buy. No cost basic benefits

      Cons

      Almost literally every thing. -huge disconnect from head office to store level -policy changes with little to no notice or explanation -lack of wage increases -little to no staff, I will have 2 sales reps at most on any given evening -refusal to hire new staff despite desperately needing them -AAA level stores seem to get priority -merchandising standards are all over the place -zero chance for advancement -head office staff constantly changing, with no direction on who to contact for issues regarding stores -gta stores never answer their phones, let alone fulfil stock requests -product managers literally ignore emails, no movement on customer orders, causing customers to get refunds in pre payments

      Pros

      There are no pros to working here… my coworkers were nice to work with but the good ones left or were fired

      Cons

      - work culture is toxic - entire company is reactive instead of proactive - benefits are the bare minimum - pay is half industry standard - no job security, entire departments were replaced by oversea workers within weeks - you will lose your job for speaking up - managers are uneducated in their field - you will be expected to work overtime without pay and on weekends when duties were incomplete over the work week - even with a clock in system, the system will automatically sign you out after 8 hours of work and auto deduct an hour for lunch even if you did not take one so all proof of overtime is non existent - no room for growth - they encourage hasty efforts over accuracy and industry standard - work/life balance can be achieved well if you neglect a portion of your duties

      Pros

      Cool technology Good hours Learn a lot as you work

      Cons

      Supervisor was a bad egg, ruined my experience and caused a number of good employees to leave. You need a lot of knowledge and the pay is not reflective of that.
