Productive and fast paced environment.
Sales Administrator (Former Employee), London, ONApril 20, 2015
Pros: Discounted medical supplies
Cons: A constant feeling of insecurity. It always felt like the Company was going to close.
Productive and fast paced environment. While employed at Motion Specialties, I learned inventory control, scheduling, administration duties, and teamwork. Had a very good working relationship with my Management team. Some difficulties of the job were understanding the different personalities of co-workers and lack of proper communication between the corporate office and our office. The most enjoyable part of my job, was customer satisfaction. Knowing that I could make a difference in someones life.

Great place to work
Rental Coordinator/Supervisor (Current Employee), Windsor, ONApril 10, 2015
A typical day at work is surrounded by lots of smiles and friendly co-workers all working very hard to help our clients. I learned to value the people that you work with. I am not leaving here because I wanted to leave, but the company was having lay offs and I was one of the people affected

Fun place to work
Service Coordinator (Current Employee), Windsor, ONMarch 21, 2015
Pros: very fun, fast paced, time flies
Cons: driving in the winter
This was a very fun place to work with fun people but I did not see it as a serious career path. If you are interested in making close to minimum wage and having a great time while doing so, this is the type of work place you should try to work at

sales coordinator
Sales Coordinator (Former Employee), HamiltonJanuary 13, 2015
Pros: nice employees
Cons: poor management
this is an entry level position. This is a dumping desk for everything that happens in the office. Left to your own devices to figure things out for yourself. Product knowledge and years of employment does not make someone a trainer. When asking office manager questions responses are in a patronizing and condescending manner. CRM system is prehistoric and training is horrendous. Expected to go solo after a week with little direction due to process and instructions being unclear. GM is MIA and office manager is moody beyond acceptance. Employees are nice people.

The working conditions are terrible with no available working stations or proper chairs to use. Bathroom is disgusting with no ventilation and the kitchen is no better.

The interview is one sided with questions being fired at you ending with "do you have any questions".

Pay is poor for amount of work required. Don"t quit your job to go here.

Rewarding work & brilliant colleagues.
Service Coordinator (Current Employee), Calgary, ABOctober 14, 2014
Pros: great work atmosphere
Cons: i need more support to do my job effectively.
The mobility/medical rehab industry was something I had no experience with before. I have learnt a vast amount working here and find the work very rewarding. I'm very looking to have a good working relationship with my colleagues which creates a productive work environment. The hardest part of my job is I can't help everyone. The most enjoyable part of the job is a happy customer.

Agreeable worksite but company was moving into major change that back stepped my choice of employment there. Or so I thought and admit I was wrong.
Sales support (Former Employee), Carnforth Ave in Lawrence & Victoria ParkJanuary 22, 2014
Pros: the atonomy to do what you needed and when. offsite, outside work hour social gatherings.
Cons: certain off site management did not view employees as people.
Very open and jovial work environment that included daily consultation with sales reps, other support staff, management, and warehouse staff.
You can provided same products and services yet do so in completely different manner.
On site management team had open door policy and took time to speak with all employees when needed.
Most of the co-workers were quite acceptable to having new staff and ideas on site.
The hardest part of the job is hearing the many hardships the clients had endurred to get to the point where they needed the company services.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the ability to help the client get what they needed to enhance their daily living needs.

Supply chain manager (Former Employee), canadaSeptember 10, 2012
Pros: good salary
Cons: disorganised chain of command
A business with a great business model and ample room for company growth. The company was recently taken by a much larger corporation and looking to improve on it profitability and growth.

My task was to ensure that all production of mass customised products were delivered accurately and on time. This would involve working with the cross functional supply chain within the location to ensure all criteria were met to get the product to the end user in a timely manner.

I was able to use my knowledge of integrations technology into supply chain to give better advisability of products status and stage of production .
