Merchandiser/Sales Associate (Ancien employé) – Cambridge, ON – 20 octobre 2018
The WORST company I have ever worked for. Severely understaffed, employees never got proper breaks, would get called in the middle of my break by my manager to come back immediately to “help”, and managers expect you to know what you’re doing as soon as you get there, even though they don’t even properly train you. They also gave me full time hours when I got hired as part time, as I’m a college student and can’t do 40 hours. When trying to explain this to them, they refused to make changes and acted like nothing happened the next day. Quite a few people quit because of Healthy Planet doing illegal things like not giving proper breaks to people like me who worked 8+ hours. When complaining to the HR of Healthy Planet, they pretended to be concerned, but didn’t even make any changes. Everyone I talked to there absolutely hated the place and complained about the unfair employee treatment. All the managers would do is sit in the back room and talk and not help any of us. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to apply here, at least not the Cambridge, ON location.
Some co-workers were friendly
Long hours I didn’t get hired for, terrible management, unfair employee treatment, no lunch breaks/breaks in general, minimal training

I warn anyone who values long term security to read the employment contract very carefully. This company has a habit of terminating it’s employees after they have used them and they only give you one week severance according to ESA. They have a clause in the agreement that you cannot pursue legal action in the event that they wrongfully dismiss you. That would explain why they do not have any policy in place for writing up employees or giving any warning before termination. Once they have used you, you are disposable to them if they feel justified in letting you go. Every policy set in place by this company is with the intention of taking away all of your power and rights to speak up against an oppressive work environment. Do yourself a favour and look for a company that has integrity and values the personal lives of its employees. Truly a terrible company and one that deserves absolutely no respect for its treatment of its employees! Truly sad and remarkable that a company can find loop holes to not be held accountable for injustice imparted upon their employees.
