Its okay, but not something for long-term
Technician/Installer (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON1 juin 2019
Typical day at work is pretty much getting your invite for a job-site for the day, loading up and getting to the site. So far, what I've learned is that the Canadian branch for AVI-SPL is basically Sharps Audio-Visual, where the management can basically do whatever they want, and fire you on the spot when you're not in favor with the boss. Workplace culture is basically just work, and you don't get a raise until you actually set your foot outside of the company for resignation. The hardest part of the job is that there is a disconnect with the executives and the technicians, where sales try to up-sale unnecessary equipment to the clients without consulting with the technical personnel and sometimes doesn't make sense with the design for a room. The most enjoyable part of the job is that, all of the technicians are in the same boat. So it's quite a ride.
Points positifs
Okay Hours and Repetitive work
Points négatifs
Future of the company is questionable

Do not work here
Project Manager (Ancien employé) –  Toronto4 octobre 2018
This a company that's all about profit first and employees last.

As there CEO says "i'v had a job for 20(whatever) years because I keep my employers happy and my shareholders happy". Everyone else means nothing to him.

Techs really have it the worst though. They work long hours with low pay, Techs are promised for paid overtime but when they hand in the time sheet, it will get rejected because there is no money in the job. And in the end its the employees that loose. Techs regularly come and go in every branch, which shows what kind of company it is .And always advertising for people, again a sign of the type of company they are.

Seeing a collegue work 70-80 hours a week to keep them happy and only paid for 40. In the end he won a large project only to be rewarded with a group email saying "well done".

There is a lot better AV companies out there to work for. And want you to work for them.

Also you have to pay to attend the xmas party. It will be organized for you, but at your exspence.

Forcing people to quit so redundancy packages are not paid. And put all the blame on projects that dont make money on the last person who quit. Lots of executives like to use this tactic to take blame of under selling a job, and making them look good.

The most sneaky and worst AV company out there,stay miles away.

Much better ones to work for
Points positifs
There is none
Points négatifs
Long hours, lots of unpaid overtime

Service Delivery Manager (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB8 avril 2018
Overall a good place to work.

There needs to be emphasis of having enough man power to match the sales team.

Be prepared for working some long hours.

Great autonomy
Senior Account Executive (Employé actuel) –  Ottawa, ON17 janvier 2018
Good overall work life balance. Good direction from leadership with a strong year over year growth. Can tend to fixate on the small things which takes attention from larger picture.

It's all about the money, employees mean nothing so don't be fooled!
Used Tech (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB1 janvier 2018
All talk no action describes them well, they will land big jobs by telling customers what they want to hear but never finish on time and it's usually the employees who suffer because they are blamed for working too slow. Jobs are under bid and they always end up losing money because of it.

Very executive driven company and micromanaged more than it needs to be to the point where all managers seem to hate the execs above them because they are trying to pinch pennies. The execs in the company all think they are cool with their Microsoft Surface and having useless meetings over Skype or Polycoms, if they spent more time working with managers customers things might be better.

As soon as work slows they get rid of employees for whatever excuse works for that day, no mercy and it doesn't matter if you worked there 3 years you will be gone when the money stops flowing in.
Points positifs
The managers don't often come to the worksite with you
Points négatifs
The managers are whiney to the point of being annoying, not alpha males at all.

Would not recommend working here.
Employee (Ancien employé) –  Vancouver, BC20 juillet 2017
They hire and fire depending on business. Don't try to retain good, valuable and hard working employees. No internal communication. Worst place to work.

Good People but lacking in employee incentive and advancement
Audio Video Installation and Service Technician (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON8 juillet 2015
Don't want to hear from workers on what it takes to improve and repeats same mistakes from past over and over again.
So much process and politics makes it next to impossible to get any advancement or training.
They have very few qualified people in any position but especially project management. Some would rather talk to friends and family on phone than pick up a call from clients or technicians, totally clueless on AV products and application
Seldom invest in the worker level.
Points positifs

Points négatifs
No raises or cost of living increases, below average pay

Nice Work Place, depending on the team
Credit Analyst and Accounts Receivable Analyst (Employé actuel) –  Calgary29 mars 2015
Full busy day, if you are proactive, you will easily be granted more responsabilities,

less motivation at work
employee's interests are not really fulfilled
But if you have a nice team, you can enjoy your work place, and really have fun.

Lack of inspiration for growth
two many executives

Very poor management
Sales (Ancien employé) –  Calgary22 avril 2013
I worked for AVISPL Canada and the company they purchased was running out of a closet and run the same way. Dishonest and very untruthful.

During interviews management will "sell" the company as Family oriented and the positions come with great benefits such as familly days, vacation and promises of training. All False!

Also if you think you enjoy commisions.... beware! You will not see what you agreed to.

Stay away as there are other very reputable Canadian company's willing and able to live up to contacts that you agree to.

They are being sued by a few already and they havent made it a year yet!

Warned....
Points positifs
stay away
Points négatifs

Great company to work for
Safety Officer/ Human Resources (Employé actuel) –  Calgary10 avril 2013
The day does begin early, but it certainly goes fast. It feels like I have been with Sharp's my whole career rather than just a few months. The team is very welcoming and helpful. The management is focused on the employees and willing to listen to suggestions. There are social events planned throughout the year and plenty of opportunities to get involved. Sharp's is a family oriented company. My children think we have a bouncy castle and games all the time.
Points positifs
fitness room, free parking
