    Low pay, punch-clock culture. Poor management, extemley busy location at 427 & Queensway. Breaks and lunch often delayed or missed.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just spew policy, walk the floor and talk to sales people, make sure they get their breaks. Have HR walk the floor and get to know what the employee's are complaining about, don't wait for them to come to you, some never will until its too late.
