Special Events team member (Current Employee) – Niagara Peninsula, ON – 1 November 2017
The PC Mastercard has been around too long, many people already have it and than there are other who are completely against credit cards. The quotas are a joke and I don't believe management when they tell me others are getting their numbers daily. I can't wait ti find a new job so I can quit!
Some days on grand openings i would bring in $2000 but then some days on regular retail days I didn't make anything so it was hard to budget living expenses. Hotels were expected to be paid for by you when you were out of town and travel expenses were not covered. Fun environment and high paced on event days.
Fun environment if comfortable talking to strangers all day
Financial Field Marketing Representative (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 27 February 2017
This job required a application quota based completely on commission at local grocery store customers. Providing information about President Choice credit cards and new benefit opportunities/ packages. It was a great opportunity to have an entry level experience into sales, but I felt to to be too intrusive and methodologically executed in an aggressive and unwelcoming way
Low wages, not enough hours, lack of opportunistic mobility
Representative (Former Employee) – montreal QUEBEC – 6 November 2016
I work for them for exactly 9 days, they fire me because of I could not reach the goals every day (which can be normal to fire me). But they did not help me, they gave me 5 minutes training how to use the tablet, and they send me the pitch by texto. I never had a coaching, and they never made an effort in order ofr me to be successful. I had the exactly the same job before, I work for them for 6 months, I quit because the work was outside, and i prefered to not work outside during the winter.
If you work with them, i hope you get a supervisor who will help you
lack of communication, sometimes contradictory informations
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Ontario – 10 May 2016
I worked for this company for about 8 months.
Every day, you will hate going into work. Once there, the people you try to sell to will try to avoid you as much as possible.
If you shadow another employee for training, you will see how fraudulent this company is. When other employees sign people up for the PC Mastercard, they often won't even tell the person they are even getting a Mastercard (which hurts their credit score). They will claim that they are getting a loyalty card instead.
You will be working completely alone. It feels terrible.
The only benefit to this job is that if you are shady, good at sales, and don't care about other people, you can make a good amount of money.
This is the cookie pusher position at the grocery store. Stay away.
You make your own schedule, to an extent.
Poor management, no work culture, awful sales, negative connotation
Supervisor (Former Employee) – London, ON – 8 September 2015
I only worked at ACTV8 for a short period of time.. Overall it was an ok place to work. I worked as a supervisor and managed a team of about 10 people. It was a difficult but rewarding job. Some days were harder than others to meet quota but we were always encouraged to keep going and the attitude of the manager was always positive.
Previous Employee (Former Employee) – Fonthill – 1 September 2015
One of the worst experiences ever. You only get paid if you get a sign up... Otherwise a big fat ZERO for the day. Travel expenses are yours.....so your pretty much a minus....you will be DeActivated pretty quick. Extremely rude management.
