    I worked at Circus World Displays full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people that work there.

    Cons

    This is a job where if you are a woman you really have no chance of moving up the corporate ladder. They will take a random man off of the streets opinion before they take yours.

    Let's fast forward to May 1st 2019. They announce the company is splitting to form ETI and CWD and assure everyone that no one will lose their job. An hour after that meeting the proceeded to lay off close to if not more than 20 people. The owners were very cold and any meetings about the company moving forward, the people that were being laid off where left out.

    Most of the department managers there do absolutely nothing all day, except for going on social media and watching videos all day. But don't bother bringing that up to anyone because most of the managers are men and HR won't do anything about it.

    There have been issues that were brought up to HR on more than 3 occasions and nothing was done about it.
    Also the turnover rate is ridiculous! In the time I was there 16 people quit or were let go. And any new people that were ever hired to fill that role were male Indian.

    I have had jobs where I was assaulted but I have to say this was the worst job I have ever had in my life. No respect, back stabbing , gossip and owners that have no idea what any of their employees do and think of everyone as replaceable.

    The company may have split but the brothers are still fighting and everyone knows about it that works there.... It makes for a very uncomfortable work environment when you have to listen to both owners complain about each other.

    The one brother is 'forward thinking' but really has no social skills nor compassion for others. The other brother is stuck in his ways thinks his way is right and is better than everyone else. Both companies aren't putting out any new products and if there are it's just taking someone else's product and slapping their name on it so they don't disappear off the market.

    Advice to Management

    I would give advice but I know for a fact they don't take it. They only listen to themselves and will run both companies into the ground because of it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Circus World Displays (Niagara, ON (Canada)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Lacked the energy, questions were very "off the internet" standard. Interview was with an HR and a technical person. Questions were very generic. Office setting was sort of "worn down" and located in an iffy area. Didn't had a good vibe. HR engagement was lackluster at the best.
