I worked at Solutions for just under three years, and being there that long, you see and learn a lot about what goes on behind the scenes. The only reason I am giving the company two stars instead of one is because my manager and assistant manager were honestly the best, most hard-working and accommodating people I have ever met in my life. Unfortunately, neither of these employees work at the store anymore.

The Solutions work environment was visibly uncared for and unsafe. In my store, one of our washrooms was out of order for the first two and a half years that I worked there, and the other one was without a door handle for the last few months before I left. There was just a sign saying to knock. How lovely! The ladders that they provided for the staff were either wobbly or almost broken, except for the large, wheeled one that reasonably could not be moved all around the store for simple tasks or to grab an item just out of reach. Of course, when these issues were mentioned to head office, they were shrugged off. In fact, the last time I was in this store, probably around December, a lot of this was still the same. Our store also went through an insane amount of cheap, household vacuums because they did not want to purchase ONE good vacuum that would last a long time, and each time a cheap vacuum broke, we would wait a few months for the next. This didn't work very well with the salt on the ground during the winter, certainly.


There is a lot more that I would love to talk about, but it would go against Indeed's review guidelines.


At the end of the day, I would recommend

Avoid this company at all costs. The owner is clueless and has no business sense. Home office is a joke. IT can't even get sales to ring up on the registers. The product is over priced and poor quality. It's not surprising this company had to reduce down to three stores. Don't work or shop here.
Points positifs
Nothing.
Points négatifs
Everything.

I worked in the head office and it was the worst experience of my life. You will be told lies from the second you walk into that building. They will tell you everything you want to hear, but it could not be farther from the truth!!! You will be expected to do all the dirty work, you will be underpaid, you will not be treated with respect, you will be lied to, you will be given unrealistic deadlines. The turnover rate is unbelievable!

If you enjoy making minimum wage, long-hours (9 hours + only 30 mins for lunch), clocking in and out, even if you are salaried, being docked pay if you have a doctors appointment/need 15 minutes for any personal reason, then apply for a job here.


I cannot express how terrible and sad it is to work here, do not apply!!!

To summarize? They screwed over there employees, emptied stores with no acknowledgement to there employees while they were off due to a pandemic. Has now left empolyees in the dark as to if they'll even have a job to return to. They have no care for employees, or to do "whats right". Its all about personal gain. Between the constant chaos of the store...not because it was busy but because head office to stores and back again no one knew whY was happening. Expectations were high with a low dose of reality. For an organizational store, there pretty disorganized.
Points positifs

Solutions is a retail company which had 14 locations all over the Ontario when I joined. I started working as a Sales associate and being my first job in Canada, it gave me a lot of new experiences and helped me learning a lot about the market and culture going around here.

Solutions is a joke they have screwed multiple employees with not taking taxes off pay, even after requesting extra taxes taken off we had to pay around $2000 after doing our taxes. Management is a joke as well.

The staff at store level are absolutely amazing for the most part. However, upper management is a joke. They are extremely disorganized and treat their employees unfairly. There is zero room for growth. The district manager enjoys belittling women and acting as though the company is his own.

The staff at store level are great- it’s as soon as head office gets themselves involved (which they always do) that it becomes an absolute nightmare. The district manager is a complete misogynist, he raises men up on pedestals and makes the women in the company feel like they aren’t worth the scum on the bottom of his shoe. Head office really needs to make some changes if the company wants to stay around much longer treating employees like garbage won’t get them much further

Management:
- poor communication

- do not care about their employees, owner will put on act at first like he does

- Treats his employees like garbage

- People in the office are scared to even ask to leave early

- A bully and extremely disrespectful

- Negative

- pays people very low and expects the world from them

- false promises

- lies ( do not believe anything he says)

- poor environment conditions at store level and in head office ( everything is falling a part and he refuses to pay people to fix these things)

- All management comes and goes as they please and do not get questioned, staff is not allowed to do so because you are told you will be " investigated" or in trouble

- There is no HR to turn to in the office

- No appreciation for anything

- Are to work all holidays and no chance of you leaving early

- NO BONUSES

- NO RAISES

-NO STRUCTURE

- NO REAL MANAGEMENT IN THE OFFICE

- everyone is miserable


Believe all the negative reviews you read they are true, you will regret coming to this place.

I worked at a location for a total of 3 weeks. After only two shifts, I was “let go” for a miss communication between my training manager, another manager and myself. I have never been more upset in my life to be “let go” after only TWO registered shifts (other than my training days.) I was told by my training manager to listen to the new manager that had just come in. We had been discussing how great of a place it is to work and that there were so many adavatages to working with the main manager. The other manager told me that I was allowed to complete something non work related when the store had no one in it and i had nothing to do, but I definitely was not! Even though the other two store associates were on the computers going non work related things! One was checking her personal email and the other was playing cards.. ON THE COMPUTER! I tried to explain this to the main manager but she thought I was lying! Never again will I subject myself to such poor treatment after working at a location for 3 WEEKS! It sucked because I really did like it there. Anyways, don’t listen to anyone but your main manager because people will try and get you fired :)

P.S: During these 3 weeks I severely hurt myself and wasn’t able to attend work. Between the time of my first and second shift, they had decided that I shouldn’t be employed at their establishment. They waited a whole week until I was scheduled to come back in to “let me go!” I wobbled in to the store, sat down in the office and they let me go! They didn’t even call me and ask me to come in and discuss anything! They waited

I went to interview, but the experience was horrible. That lady from HR talked to me for less than 5 minutes, made questions that is not avoid in Canada, and she was so arrogant. Anyway, of course I didn't get that job, but she never send at least some feedback. Just words and no actions

I enjoyed my time here. Great place for a part-time job!

Applied for SM Job in Mississauga. HR scheduled interview. Morning of the interview day HR called to cancel the interview that she double booked so they will reschedule and at the same time she says “ I know you have applied for Mississauga but will you go to Barrie” I told HR I live in Mississauga and want to work in Mississauga. Also asked if she will pay a lot more money to go to Barrie. HR told me she will call back and never heard ever again.
Be careful with this company if they are changing there words before the interview then what will they do after you will have job.

Terrible experience never recommend anyone to apply in this company.

It was ok. Nothing special or great about it. Ok money. Good crew to work with. Company head office is not the best and sometimes tripping over each other on what they are doing.

I worked for this company for several months and found it to be an average job. Not the most detailed training and a lot of it was 'learn as you go'. A good amount of physical labour and you must be comfortable climbing ladders on a consistent basis.
My first couple of paycheques were incorrectly paid.

Management was okay. One manager was great, the other was not, but this can be said in many jobs.

Staff were friendly. It was a very casual environment and had a small company feel. Overall a very average job - not horrible but I have definitely had many better jobs than this one.
