A lot of good employees have left at Montreal Branch in the 2 years that I worked there as an Account Manager. Poor management and micro management with 70s mentality and heavy internal procedures gives me the reasons to remove 3*.
Excellent products and very good support team (until every one with experience eventually leaves) are the only reason I would give this place a 2*.
Colleagues, product quality
Management, company not knowing where it is heading with newly acquired IT Weapons
Named Account Executive (Current Employee) – Dartmouth, NS – 4 May 2016
Great people and support at the branch level. Unrealistic sales targets. Same sales plans given to other roles that have prov & fed govt accounts which normally ends up being a very large percentage of their business. This role requires you to make 80-90% of your sales from Cold Calling competitor accounts.
I had a great time working , nice company culture and when working you feel very accepted and part of a team.
Only down side is the department was under stuff and due to the high volume of entries it was very difficult for management to have clear understanding of what the roles require in order to appreciate employee input and properly access their strength and weakness .
High value of role is placed on speed .
nice company culture and when working you feel very accepted and part of a team
Under stuff, High value off job is placed on quantity
Electronics Technician (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 22 October 2013
Looking for a new challenge. The company is a nice place to work at most of the time, just like any company I guess. For me, personally, the biggest sense of satisfaction comes from putting a smile on one of my customers faces because they're now up and running again.
Client Care Representative (Current Employee) – Mississauga Ontario – 19 September 2013
Konica Minolta OPS department closely monitors "VIP" accounts. Working with these accounts you must be able to pay attention to detail, work in a multitask environment and be able to deal with very high end clients, who except nothing the best service. I personally monitor a minimum of six accounts and this includes the proactive ordering of toner and placing of service calls.

Billing Support Associate (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 19 September 2012
A typical day at work is setting up contracts, cancelling contracts, sending and responding to emails. I've learned a lot more organizational skills, what the real meaning of customer service is dealing with customers on the phone and solving their problems to the best of my ability.
The hardest part of my job is usually the end of the month when deadlines need to be met.
The most enjoyable part of my job is working with great people as well as satisfying customer needs.
