Well established company - sometimes fun to work at.
Service Clerk (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 27 March 2017
Most of the time, it was a good place to work. The work was not really demanding and I got paid probably the right amount for the work but it was not enough to support a family very well so I found something else.
TRAVEL SALES & SERVICE (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 12 March 2017
AMA is a very good place to work, they truly care for their employees. They do their best to train and keep motivation and morale high. Unfortunately the opportunity for advancement seem to be only available to a select few team members, they don't do as much to prepare many employees to advance.
Advanced Registry Agent (Current Employee) – St. Albert, AB – 24 February 2017
Depending on the time of the month we can be very busy. Which makes the day go by fast. If we're not busy we are doing our daily tasks and getting everything we need to get done out of the way. For example checking our daily documents from the previous day and making sure there are no mistakes that need correcting. I've learned so much since starting here a little over 2 years ago. I have taken a number of tests and received the certifications required of me. All listed on my resume. Our management team we have here at the St. Albert branch are fantastic. Always there to help us out and are very easy to talk to when it's needed. They are very supportive and push us to do our best. Work place enviroment is very friendly. The hardest part of the job would be keeping up with policy and all the changes that comes with the job. The most enjoyable would have to be the people I work with and a lot of the customers that come through our doors. They know how to make us laugh and make the job worth it.
When a company slogan is 'We treat are members like family and friends' that in itself speaks volumes about A.M.A.
Claims Coordinator (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 28 September 2015
AMA is a forward thinking company. Advancing within the company is a definite plus. They pay for your courses if they help to improve your chances for advancement, or if they are part of the criteria for the job. They promote a somewhat relaxed atmosphere with a business casual dress code. They often bring in lunch or arrange group barbecues within each department. By being an AMA employee you receive a 25% discount on your Insurance if purchased at AMA. You also get a 50% discount on your AMA membership. They are a company that gives back to the community by allowing each employee a paid volunteer day, They support a variety of charities and use their own staff at shredding events offered free to the general public. We work within a team environment, and encourage co workers to invest in that ideal. Work can be hectic, frustrating, busy but yet satisfying , pleasant and very rewarding. I love my time there.
good pay, benefits, and a pleasant and inviting work environment
HR Administrator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 23 September 2015
AMA was a fantastic company to work for. The culture within the organization was family and friend oriented for employees and customers alike. AMA excelled at ensuring everyone within the company understood the expected behaviour of respect towards one another and the clients.
At AMA not only did I learn how to promote and enhance organizational culture but various avenues within the field of Human Resources. As an entry level professional I was given the tools and opportunities to explore each faucet of HR assisting with projects, recruitment, employee programs, benefits and largely, health and safety initiatives. My typical day included data entry, but whenever I had "free time" I was able to explore other areas of interest.
The hardest part of my job was that I was wanting more responsibility and opportunity to explore further into my interests and due to my position, I was unable to reach out of my primary responsibilities more often and there was no foreseeable advancement in the near future.
The most enjoyable part of my job was giving the employee the best possible benefit package, answering inquiries in regards to their employment and assisting my manager and co-workers with any "outside the box" projects.

an excellent company to work for, the management and staff really cared about the customers and the employees. many great benefits and opportunities were provided to all that wanted them. I loved going into work every day, management and my coworkers respected and cared about me. Sometimes it would get tough with difficult registries situations that weren't flexible but they handled it excellently.
