Worked as a software scanner for the Google online book search project. Google was an incredible company to work for and really soaked up every minute I could working for an amazing company like Google.

I like working with them, they let you make your own hours and if you work hard enough you will be able to make big cash. anyone can work with them as long as you work as hard as you can and have a creative mind.
Environnement agréable mais en constant changement
Commis libraire (Current Employee) – Quebec City, QC – 13 January 2016
Je ne serais pas demeurée plus de 7 ans si je n'appréciais pas le travail. L'environnement a toujours été agréable et chaleureux. le rapport avec les clients respectueux et intime, sans la pression de performer pour vendre un produit à n'importe quel prix. Bien souvent je passe plusieurs dizaines de minutes avec un seul client, l,aidant à faire un choix, lui racontant mes coups de cœur littéraire. La vente se fait par intérêt du livre et non pour forcer une vente! J'aime l'idée de contribuer également au succès d'un auteur anonyme qui n'est pas populaire auprès des médias sociaux. J'ai appris beaucoup sur moi comme pour chaque emploi occupé. J'aime relever des défis dans l'exercice de mes fonctions mais les postes de gestion ne sont pas faits pour moi. Mes collègues ont fréquemment changé avec les années et à part ma supérieure immédiate (très compétente), le roulement de personnel a modifié intégralement l'équipe. Y compris les directeurs qui se sont succéder à la suite de changements intenses et déroutants, un peu trop fréquents.

Adecco employee (Former Employee) – Canada and US – 16 June 2015
- Every day was different and this is mainly why I took the job. I traveled across Canada twice, traveled to Nunavut and saw the most spectacular National and Provincial Parks all over Canada.
- Management had little to no oversight and let me do my job without much intervention or direction which was sometimes difficult when they asked me to complete a task I was unfamiliar with.
- There was no one else from Adecco or Google working with me as I traveled across the country; though I could call them when needed so was not 100% independent. I communicated with a representative from Google on a daily basis to report my progress.
- The most difficult part of the job was driving long distances after a strenuous day of hiking with heavy equipment on my back.
- The scenery and some of the individuals from Parks Canada were definitely the most enjoyable parts of the job.
Customer Care (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 May 2015
Indeed has been a great place to work. With any growing company, there have been moments of stress. But through strong leadership and a clear mission (I help people get jobs), Indeed has been an amazing place to work. The challenges are daily and varied and leave me satisfied. I have grown a lot working here and see a lot of potential for more in the future.
Very innovative. One of the best companies to work for.
Sr. Account Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 February 2015
-Good exposure. You get to work with some of the best companies in the world as Google's clients and huge organizations. -A typical day starts with checking emails and following up with clients and internal team meetings. -I learned consultative selling techniques and complex sales to large multi-national organizations -Amazing co-workers. Very cooperative. Company culture is amazing - Working for google has its perks but its not a bowl of cherries. You have to work very hard, long hours, travel and probably the hardest part would be keeping up with emails. - Great relationships with coworkers and clients
