  • ExcelHR has obviously gotten wind of the dismal (and honest) reviews on this site, which is why there are several similarly-worded reviews posted at around the same time. The truth about this company is that it treats its employees terribly. Far from what they claim when trying to sign you, they do not "invest" in you as an employee. You are paid nothing (barely a living wage and no overtime. And there WILL be overtime. Lots of overtime.) and required to stay late nearly every night, disregarding the fact that you have a life beyond Excel. As a probationary employee (you will start at the company in this manner), you are afforded close to zero rights and protections. It should be pointed out that most Ontario corporations use a standard two to three month probation period for their employees. ExcelHR's probation period is SIX MONTHS. You can be fired for any reason, or for no reason. And they have a statistically high chance of firing rather than keeping you as an employee. Turnover at this company is extraordinarily high and it is the company's doing, not employees "being unable to do the job," as they will tell you. One last note about their corporate culture... It is degrading and fake. If you do not consistently profess your love for this company (the same company that is working you 12 hours a day and paying you nothing), then you are admonished for "not having the right attitude" or some such thing. It isn't enough to do your work and do it well, you are then expected to appreciate the "fun" forced on you by way of their frequent and mandatory company events.

    Here is the thing. If you are just out of university and desperately need a job, I would consider this place as something to put on your resume. You will learn to love any job that you have thereafter as well and be grateful. ExcelHR does teach you things (though management does not) and you will work with some intelligent and creative young professionals so put in your time and gain some experience before they fire you or you can't take the place anymore.

    If, however, you are exploring other options and don't need a job right this minute, I would go elsewhere. Anywhere else, in fact. There are so many companies that will treat you like a human being and actually invest in you as an employee. They pay better too.

I wonder who would write something like this.
