Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Toronto – November 15, 2013
A typical day at work is sitting at the teller wickets helping clients. You sell product when they come up to each and every person. Management can be good, but a lot of the time it's not so great. Co-workers are the best part of the job. The hardest part of the job is selling as much product as they want you to.
Insurance Coordinator/Distribution Supervisor (Current Employee), Edmonton, AB – November 7, 2013
Not a single is day at work is the same but I strive to keep my mind tuned towards success and keep out the junk (negativity) as much as possible. What I've learned is to be happy with what I have while pursuing all that I want. Management is always encouraging and I love to reciprocate that with hard work and deliver what's required of me. Co-workers – more... are great. Everyone has a not so good of a start everyday so, a small compliment towards them really gives them boost and make them feel better. After all, Giving starts the process of receiving. The toughest part of the job is when you've exhausted all avenues to help someone (client with their respiratory benefits) but you still fall short.and don't get approved. The best part of the job is that every failure and rejection allows me to begin more intelligently, think critically and think with a problem solving mentality. – less

I would count the cash in the main office then go on the register. I also helped customer's find the product that they were looking for. Management was very helpful. They thought me a lot within a short period of time. The hardest part of the job was to watch out for the fake id's. The most enjoyable part for me was dealing with all the customer's.
