Very demanding
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB7 November 2017
Set unrealistic exceptions. They are not obtainable. It is very small and there are very little resources available to get the projects completed on a timely matter. Very little personal accountability among some of the management.
Pros
Company Truck
Cons
Not compensated for time, numbers are the only things that matter, Effort and time given are not recognized at all.

My own version of CSI Toronto - with an insurance twist
Claims Assistant (Former Employee) –  North York, ON10 July 2013
Work was roughly 9-5.Investigated wet basements, a kitchen that went up in flames, or a crime scene at a business location. Took pictures of the damage then filed claims to the insurance company estimating the type of repair and the cost. Once the budget was approved by the Insurance company dispatch contractors to repair the damage, while keeping within the budget.
