Sales Manager/Team Leader (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 January 2016
A typical day consisted of morning meetings. We would than head out to a designated area where we would offer our services to potential customers in that area.
I learned to keep things from becoming personal. Some people do not like door to door persons so they would slam doors in my face. However; I would not allow this to affect my mood and proceeded to the next home.
My management team was very happy with my sales that were very consistent, I was given my own company van and a team of 10 trainees to supervise, motivate and make sure they were able to hit their daily quotas.
Then hardest part of my job was motivating my team to keep up their smiles and high spirits when it was very cold outside.
The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to train my team and be able to consider them my friends. The respect they had for me was amazing and inspired me to be better.

Contract Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 November 2015
The staff, contractor's and leadership were a pleasure to work with.
My typical work day was managing the finances and reporting on DE's largest capital project ever undertaken.
I worked closely with a team primarily out of the Houston office. When I started my role was to gather project costs from 4 different companies and several different cost centres and set up the project under one business unit, create the budget and forecasting models, work closely with the PM to design the monthly reporting package.
The role developed into ensuring milestone schedules and payments were cleared for payment, working closely with purchasing setting up and managing purchase orders, staffing and contractor costs and ensuring costs were properly managed.
A large part of the role was ensuring all monthly accruals were accounted for, drawn up by me, posted and monthly and inception to date variances explained.
Finally there was project close out and capitalization. The entire team had moved on, leaving me to work with fixed assets and management ensuring capitalization was successful.
Hardest part was the gathering of costs into one company as it was up to me alone to locate and ensure all costs were accounted for.
Cow-workers were fabulous to work with, had excellent rapport and were very supportive.
Most enjoyable part of the role was training and mentoring financial analysts from the Houston office, seeing them learn and grow. Project close out was also a great yet rewarding experience.
I learned my experience with multiple personalties proved invaluable, particularlymore... working the the PM and having to train basic project accounting and various listening and communication styles to more junior people.less
