    I worked at Circus World Displays full-time

    Pros

    Full time employment in area Good co-workers If you love structure - this is the place for you

    Cons

    Like any review read the good and the bad. There are legitimate ones on both ends. Be aware that management strongly pressures employees to write reviews here. Many will obviously write positive reviews about their current workplace. Management will constantly harass you to write a review until you say you wrote one. I would not recommend working here. It saddens me to say that because I would want the best... hires for the people I worked with. If you decide to work here, know that there is an issue with work life balance. Depending on your role you may have to constantly stay late. Some employees have to do tasks from home on nights and weekends. Heaven forbid you get a company phone. Terrible work/life balance. They will claim they are flexible but they are not. Management does not understand what it is like to have a family life at all. They do not understand that some people like to spend time with their spouse and kids. They may have family obligations, but those come second to anything work related. Many will talk about all the great training they provide. This is true, they have many opportunities to take training courses. However work is always more important so any time training classes are organized by the company they are always outside of work hours. They will always be on nights and weekends. If you decline training they will slowly work on firing you for not being a team player. If you decline training courses you will be harassed to take them over and over. They do not understand that some people need to spend time with their families outside of work hours. Overall environment - just not a pleasant place to work. Staff are great, but there is just an overall weird cloud of negativity. Very high stress environment. Hiring Process - extremely lengthy and over the top. For entry level positions you might have several interviews, personality tests, and work preview days. I had a bad gut instinct during the hiring process that I should have listened to. If Tim Hortons down the street is hiring, take that job over any position here. Compensation - they will pay you as low as humanly possible. They low ball everything.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more of a work life balance to your employees. For many people this place is a job, and they are not as personally invested as you are (you don't give them a reason to be invested)
