Work@ home Agent (Former Employee) –  St. Albert, AB15 December 2016
A fun place to work at. The other employees were an awesome bunch to work with. Always there to give a helping hand when needed.. The management were incredible, very understanding and respectful of their employees. I don't believe there was a hard part to the job. The company had bonus incentives for the employees.
Pros
Bonuses, 1 hour lunches

Dead! The office is like a morgue
Student IT (Former Employee) –  Student for work experience13 May 2016
Extremely poor place to work. Did my practicum there a few years ago and would never want to work for a company like that. They use student for free work and give nothing for the work. They even expected us to pay for parking in their lot. You would think the company could pick up the price of parking for students that can't afford to pay for parking since they're not paying them already. Was hired for IT experience but was give data entry job and that was it.
Pros
None
Cons
They take advantage of students for free work

Poorly managed, poorly paid
Support (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC2 April 2016
When I first started at Active it was a good place to work. The pay wasn't good, and the hours were long, but the company was run pretty well and there was a sense that everyone was working hard.

Since the original CEO left and the company was sold, things have gone dramatically downhill. They fired a lot of people and brought in executives who don't seem to have a clue how to run a good company (a company that people want to work for and with), only how to run a company that makes money. Even worse, that too is going downhill, and they are starting to sell off more and more of the company to try and maintain profitability.

Hours are just as long, pay is just as low compared to industry standards, but there is now a sense that poor management will result in more layoffs or the company breaking up completely. Job security is very low.

I recommend for anyone thinking about working at Active anywhere except the head office (Dallas) that you wait at least a year or two longer to see if the company breaks up or sells off more divisions.
Pros
Good discounts on sports stuff from multiple companies
Cons
Long hours, poor pay, incompetent management

big company, cheap pay
specialist (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC20 January 2016
it's a big mature company with great working environment. The biggest problem is it's a really cheap pay company and the c suite people are very dictator alike.
