    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.

    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.
