This is a Fantastic Company to work for, aggressive salaries, plenty of bonuses, easy going work environment and friendly atmosphere. The company encourages (and rewards) performance growth. For a big company, they have maintained a small business mentality, group lunches every Friday, flowers are sent to families that are grieving a loss, gifts are sent to families celebrating new arrivals, and flexible hours for appointments. There are no layers when it comes to management, everyone has an open-door policy (even the president of the company). As stated, this is a fantastic company! – Barrie, ON

I’ve been at Surplus Furniture for 6 months now and I have loved every minute of it. Everyday I am excited to come to work and take on my tasks for the day. What I like so much about working at Surplus is the environment. We really are a team, everyone is there for one another and we all work together to complete our tasks. You know you are valued when you work here, you aren’t just another number. Our group lunches, birthday celebrations and gifts for those who are grieving are just a few ways the company shows you they really care about their employees. You also learn a lot, constant growth is always happening if you realize it or not. I look back and can already see how much I have grown within my career in this short period of time. I can’t imagine working anywhere else. – Barrie, ON
