Physical damage appraiser for vehicles (Former Employee) – Thornhill, ON – 31 May 2017
bad company to work for not a company that cares about there people benefits not good to much pressure to have assignments completed in my opinion to many supervisors and or managers that are woman driven bad environment for males to get ahead in the conpany
N/A (Current Employee) – Thornhill, ON – 20 April 2017
In constant fear of being fired. More and more being expected of you without any compensation or at the very least recognition. The boast work life balance but it's nowhere to be seen. If you have a family the company will expect them to come last after the company and mandatory over time that's written into your contact when hired
Progressive company looking to continue to move forward
District Manager (Current Employee) – Ontario – 15 December 2016
CAASCO is looking to drive their business forward to not only keep all current Members safe, but also to go beyond that and be available at every aspect of their Members lives. There is a great team of people that are always striving to do better and never accept the status quo.
CONTRACT NETWORK ADVISOR (Former Employee) – Thornhill, ON – 24 October 2016
This is a good company to work for other than their Operations department. There is a 1 year learning curb, however there is no formal training. For example, they will ask you to conduct criminal back round checks for their drivers but never show you what the form looks like, what type of information you should be looking for etc. They will ask you to settle damage disputes between members and their service providers but never train you to properly assess or inspect a damaged vehicle. The list goes on. The operations department is constantly in panic mode due to having a new director that simply does not grasp the concept of the industry. He over works his staff, and as a result their team is always understaffed. They have been about 10 dispatchers and 5 adviser's short over the span of 2 years. The management team lacks leadership skills and are very reactive in the way they run the department.
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – rather not say – 6 August 2016
Working for Service Ontario was a great learning experience. Great coworkers. Great customers but it definitely had its down falls.
Being spat on. Stuff thrown at you. If you can't handle stress then this is not the place for you. Long line ups. Irritated customer especially when you have to turn them away. You are under paid. You have to do government work but get paid close to minimum wage. That's what made it not worth it for me. $14 an hour to have to deal with the amount of information and people on a day to day basis. There is lots to remember and no room for mistakes. You make too many mistakes, you don't get a raise which by the way isn't much anyway. I felt as if being a part time employee meant that you had to cater to all the full time employees. You have to make sure that they're stations are fully stocked. And not to mention getting a full time position can take years to get. Your either have to wait for someone to be fired, quit or retire.
With that being said, the amount of stuff you have to deal with and remember is not worth the money they pay you.
Was a fun place to work and kept you busy all day!
MSC (Former Employee) – Scarborough – 12 September 2013
No communication with management and employee's. Was let go for no reason even though I was told my sales numbers and learning curve was excellent! Manager lied to me on a few occasions. Mostly minor things but I don't need to be deceived just the same. Customers told me personally that I was very helpful and personable to them and that they would ask for me again! Staff was great and very helpful!
Working with the public. Also the other staff were great to work with.
Commission split unfairly, only made $62 dollars in 3 months, misleading manager, and was not given a reason for dismissal.
Worked for CAA car care for 18 months. Very little work in a busy town, they offered bonus' based on sales instead of flat rate which is fine however when the sales are so cheap the mechanics are LOSING money it's not a very productive work environment! No job security and they are constantly changing local management and roaming managers. Mass firings and lay offs are a daily deal with this company. Pays the bills I guess.... But both worth banging up your own tools over!
very true, comment here, once a good place to work, but yes now, not so, new management promotes unskilled former co-workers, and others being let go with no reason, people that were doing their jobs. Others being covered for their inadequacies or personal problems, why, because of who they know. Place is horrible for the politics she has brought.
