    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

    Advice to Management

    They've been receiving the advice they needed to hear for years. They choose not to listen to it and because of this their company is failing. It is unfortunate as this place had the potential to bring a lot of work and economic prosperity to the Niagara region.

    I worked at Circus World Displays full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Some coworkers are great people - The day I left this company - Literally nothing else

    Cons

    This so called company has zero respect for their employees, not to mention are so far behind in the technology that they are coming out with. With a mission to "create the highest performing consumer electronics that are smart, simple and stylish", is far from reality with what has recently been released..that's if it even does get released after all the problems they encounter. The company is run by two... brothers who should absolutely not be in business, and recently decided to literally split the company. While in a meeting they told employees not to worry about their jobs, to only then let go of a handful of people (Some of whom were long time employees - 10+ years!!) for restructuring. This company's vision is 'to empower people' which is an absolute joke if you've sat at a desk here for more than a week. Why do you think there is always constant job postings and positions to be filled? They are not growing, people get hired and leave quickly because of the extremely toxic work environments and demands, mixed with the low wages. It is not worth the trouble and stress to work here. To anyone looking or in the extremely long and unnecessary hiring process that is put in place here, please listen to the negative reviews. They are not written by ex-employees who are bitter..they could not be more true and accurate of what is really occurring here.

    Advice to Management

    Like the previous review said..would be a waste of time to leave advice. It has been brought up countless times and management will do nothing about it or acknowledge how poorly they are treating people.
