Productive day always tasks to complete
Training Operator/ Mild Labourer (Former Employee), pickering, OnNovember 10, 2014
Pros: driving any car
Cons: long hours
A typical day at work is coming in and getting all the cars ready to go out to the customers, ensuring there all cleaned and in working condition.

I learned how to manage your time wisely.

A lot expected with not much return.
Service Attendant/ Acting Counter Service Staff (Current Employee), Laird, ONMarch 11, 2013
Pros: a bit of overtime now and again adds about 50$ to the paycheque.
Cons: at this point, too many to name.
I began working cleaning cars for minimum wage which was fine for me at the time because of the level of enjoyment compared to the workload. The guaranteed 44 hours was a bonus for someone like me looking to make money. However everything changed when the counter position at my store left leaving me to fill his role. It has now been almost 5 months – more... and the promotion I was promised over 3 months ago has still not come. They pressure you about your sales and your punctuality with lure of your 'pending' promotion because those are the apparent requirements for promotion. Worst part is that I'm actually good at the job so my manager has started taking advantage of the fact and now leaves the branch as often as he can. Tomorrow he is actually taking his car during work hours to have his brake pads and rotors replaced. Stay away from discount.

PS We get free lunches on long weekends but we got capped due to the employee I replaced and even though they are long gone the 20$ cap still remains. This company, just like most of their employees, doesn't care about anything. – less

Great place to work, lots of room for advancement for those who worked and played hard.
Fleet Manager / Maintenance Centre Manager (Former Employee), Halifax, NSAugust 22, 2012
Pros: great company to work for
Cons: really none, if you love your job, you really never mind the hours requied to get there to be successful.
As fleet manager/maintenance manager, I really never planned a day. In most cases my plan was out the window by 8:10am as you went were demands were the greatest.
Loved the job, loved the industry as a whole considering I put 27 years of my life into the industry.
Great perks, the company car, fuel, laptop computer and the freedom to purchase the fleet – more... I wanted.
Planning required great skill as you had to know the industry, the hot models, the proper equipment levels as the best part of the job was the fact that the commision was endless and that all came from experience and buying knowledge – less

Enjoyed learning cr rental industry
Sales manager (Former Employee), Charlottetown PEJuly 27, 2012
Pros: driving new car models each year
Cons: long hours in hot summer months
Was an excellent fun job mostly dealing with tourist industry and insurance replacement auto segment of auto industry. Had a good co worker that made job enjoyable,the owner manager was open to business advancement and welcomed all suggestions,hardest part of job was understanding the owners reasons for always changing pay structure making bonuses unobtainable – more... most months mad staff moral low. Enjoyed dealing with tourists as for most part were happy and cheerful went at rental counter – less
