Walking door to door everyday is hard. I learned how to be confident on dealing with people, My co-workers are fun to work with, Hardest part of the job is walking for 8 hours rain or shine.

Operations Centre and Payroll Clerk (Former Employee), St. Catharines, ONNovember 7, 2013
Pros: team rewards and community care activities during work hours.
Cons: office closing
I worked for 10 years with the same company and even though they closed our office I feel I big loss...My co-workers where my family outside of my home. I still have contact with a lot of them. My manager was a strong supporter with new task and made sure we had the training needed and was very approachable. The most enjoyable part of my job were the people, from all departments.

Energy Management Consultant (resi HVAC Sales) (Former Employee), OttawaJanuary 22, 2013
Pros: occasional free lunch, some decent co-workers
Cons: long hours, misguided management, lack of respect
Very demanding, greedy company. Even record sales figures were not good enough. Lying, conniving management, that would back stab to save their own skin. The only thing that matters to DE is the bottom line. Honesty, employee relations/ value, even customer satisfaction is secondary.

Long hours but great people
Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee), Markham, ONSeptember 26, 2012
