    I have been working at goeasy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I been with GoEasy for 2 years, and I just love my job. Here is my list of pros; They have incentives every month to win bonuses, clothing, food, extra weeks off, birthdays off paid, and much more. If you are a top performer you have a chance to travel to different places in the world. They offer full benefits after 3 months of employment. Everyone at GoEasy has a chance to move up and better themselves, for me it only took 6 months and I became a assistant store manager. The whole company works as a big team to help you get your targets achieve to win bonus every month. Employees can purchase furniture at cost and get loans through the company at next to no interest to help their associates in their personal life. This company offers so much and I feel they truly do care about all of us, I can keep going on but I think this sums most of it up.

    Cons

    It is a very fast pace environment and is a challenge everyday. I find that the biggest challenge is that there is too much store promotions, and it can be difficult to get our store ready and get motivated for the next promotions. Other than that its a wonderful work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Try a different approach with sales, we need more time to setup our stores.

    Pros

    David Ingram and Jason Mullings leadership rocks !They are forward thinking individuals that bring up the value of the company and the people working for it.

    Cons

    No cons that I can think off since I am still here after 15 years. Like every company there are up and downs during the years. But the overall result is a positive plus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on rocking by striving to be one the best employers in Canada. There are always twist and turns but keeping your heads held high in integrity and positive energy will help push us forward to a bright future.

    Pros

    Great company to learn and grow with an amazing leadership team and incentive plan for employees.

    Cons

    Contact Centre Technology is a work in progress. Instilling the vision for positive change with some employees can be tough, but this is a normal bump in the road.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing, the sky is the limit for this great company and I'm grateful for the opportunity that I was given to learn and grow.

    I worked at goeasy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of incentives like pizza lunches, gift cards etc. weekly to push sales. Monthly targets met can increase pay awards for all staff if you can manage to meet the outrageous target and all expenses paid annual trips for 4days for Branch Managers.

    Cons

    Watching the desperate public being conned into falling into further debt ( in most cases ) and loans with outrageous interest rates. This is why they are making so much money they are stealing from the people who can’t get approved elsewhere because their debt ratio is too high. Cha Ching!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop forcing staff to place raving reviews on Glassdoor to bump up your score!
    You have branch managers forcing staff to make excellent reviews on glassdoor and watching over their shoulders to make sure it’s an excellent review...sad!!
    Also Branch Managers shouldn’t have to sacrifice family time at anytime, you simply don’t pay enough to demand such.

    Pros

    goeasy is a newer company dedicted to it's customers and it's employees. Because of this, there is a lot of opportunity for advancement. If you are willing to work hard and embrace the goeasy culture (which is about fun, team work, social responsibility, etc) the growth opportunity is endless. I have never worked for a company that will work as hard for their employees as they work for them.

    Cons

    There are none at all!

    Pros

    The company really cares about the employees, and has amazing incentives. Engagement surveys are sent to the employees on a regular basis and changes are effectively seen within the company in a reasonable amount of time. The company is constantly growing and always room to move up and to transfer within the company to different cities and provinces.
    Peer to peer coaching. Community involvement with habitat for humanity and boys and Girls clubs

    Cons

    No cons - really a positive company to work for.
