Avis d'employé sur dbrand
A life-changing experience
I know what you're thinking: "that title sounds overdramatic!"Maybe it is, in a general sense. For me, it's the honest truth. My life would be in a very different place right now, had I not strolled through the doors of dbrand HQ one evening for a job interview.I don't just mean this in a banal "I'd be spending 1/3rd of my weekday existence in a different room" sense. I mean I'd be on a completely different (and definitely worse) career trajectory, with way fewer notches of experience on my belt, dramatically reduced stake in the success of my company, AND I'd be spending 1/3rd of my weekday existence in a different room... with far less interesting people.Simply put, dbrand provides a work environment where anyone can succeed, thrive, and grow - as long as they've got the grit, determination, and smarts to pull it off.If you consider yourself intelligent, agile, flexible, hardworking and multi-talented, the best work of your life is just an application and an interview away.If you're merely coasting on the length of your resume, or just looking to collect your next paycheque, you won't last a week.Putting this whole weird self-help motivational speaker spiel aside, it's also a ton of fun, as long as you gel with the culture.If I had a time machine I could use to fix all of my past mistakes, I'd make sure to leave intact all of the mistakes that indirectly led to me working at dbrand.

You walk into the building on your first day and you think that the workplace is amazing; everything seems to be running smoothly, everybody seems to be nice, the work seems like a good balance. Give it about 3 months, after that things start going downhill. You will start getting more and more responsibilities without any extra compensation, and if you make a mistake they make it seem like the end of the world. The owner and CEO is known to come down and scream in employees faces, or say entirely inappropriate things to employees upon making mistakes. You are made to feel like you have to work ridiculous hours once you have any bit of responsibility at the company, sometimes going past 18-20 hours in one shift. The managers tend to favour family over current employees, and even terminating employees for family members to replace them. If you end up being terminated and you think that it is done there, think again. They will try to find hours that you "owe them" and then all of a sudden any small bit of severance you are given seems to just disappear.
Extremely long hours, Disproportionate compensation, No possibilities for advancement, Underpaying for the amount of time/work expected
