Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Brampton ON – April 27, 2015
Culligan was a good learning process for my career but not where I would like to continue my work progression. Culligan is a local water company and I provided customer service for customers. I changed water filtration systems, and proceeded customers in their check-outs when paying for their water.
Thumbs up for corporate - thumbs down for franchise
Supervisor (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – October 23, 2014
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: clueless company direction
Way too much to do and no time to do it in. Little to no appreciation for hard work. Problems with staff retention can be traced back to not investing enough time and money where it's needed. Co-workers – more... are a real plus as are middle management, but you are always watching your back. I lost track of how many people I saw get fired or quit. Not all branches are equal, other locations have fantastic support. Everyone, ultimately, has to dance to the tune of the current ownership. They seems either too focused on the bottom line on this month's balance sheet, or are clueless in managing different business models. Working here is like winning a ticket for the Titanic - looks good, but you know how it's going to end. – less

Sales Representative (Former Employee), London, ON – September 10, 2013
Cons: long hours
The workday always starts with a team meeting led by Supervisor. Daily goals are set and yesterdays goals are discussed. Goals are realistic and time manageable. The hardest part of the job was making a sale because not everyone wants to have soft water.
Sales Coordinator, Office Administrator (Former Employee), Edmonton, ENG – January 21, 2013
Doing up reports first thing in the morning, answering phones and directing calls or helping customers with their billing. I learned how to solve many different problem situations. The hardest part of my job was to make sure all contracts were filled out properly and that they got keyed properly. Co workers were a lot of fun to be with.
