Amazing people to work with, makes work worth while
I learned so much from customer service to how to do math quicker in my head. An amazing job. Coworkers are kind and friendly and will become your lifelong friends. The most enjoyable part of the job was serving people of your town with people you admire.

Sales Leader | Oshawa, ON | Mar. 29, 2021
Wasnt a bad job. Seasonal hiring, wouldnt go back.
Was an ok place to work. Felt like a job designed for teenagers. Was hired on being told it was a seasonal contract but if i do good i could stay and worked my butt off proving my self but when the day came and I felt secure in the job they let everyone go. I was pretty upset. The uniforms are straight out of the 90's and no size fit right.
ProsGood hours, easy work
ConsBad management, bad dress code, lies to make you work better

Accounts Receivable Clerk | Fort Saskatchewan, AB | Mar. 14, 2020
Too many responsibilities. Not enough pay
Cash office was what I was hired for. Within a year I was doing about 9 different positions making the same wage . No support from management. Only bonus was the discount

Productive and fun place to work at.
Loved working at GT! Everyone likes each other, they have an employee appreciation day once a month where they cater food from different restaurants. My boss was super nice, respectful and helpful. I learned on the job about vlookups thanks to my boss- Amazing experience!
