Supportuve Management; Opportunity to innovate and learn
New Product Accounting Analyst (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 21 October 2017
Great place to start an accounting career. Not much room to advance at this time as the company is changing its business strategy. Little communication to help employees understand how they fit into the strategic plan. There is no sense of security at this time.
The best benefit is the tuition program, they will fully sponsor your education.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 27 October 2017
You work like a slave. The management tries to convince you that you are doing a good deed when in fact you are not. The dm's use intimidation techniques to make managers meet sales targets. The dm's and some managers are nasty and gossip behind people's back. 80% of customers are rude even though you try your best to help them. I liked going home and the experience. Not worth the pay. The organizational structure doesn't work. CA is the most useless department there.
CSR (Former Employee) – Belleville, ON – 2 October 2017
I worked for this company for 2 years. The most disheveling 2 years of my career thus far. The managers gossip too much,and give you unnecessary write ups for doing things that they do as well. The shifts are never given out fairly. If your manager doesn't like you , then you work close shifts everyday or you get mid shifts and weekend shifts only. The district managers are like puppets and all they really care about are the numbers and sales. The customers were sweet. That's the only thing i miss, the customers.

I loved working here. staff and residents were amazing to work with on a day to day basis. I learned a lot from everyone there unfortunately I had to leave there because of the distance I had to travel daily.

Typical customer service job in a contact centre environment for a large corporation
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 3 August 2017
The entry level job for the contact centre, doesn't pay that well, with the business needs of the company coming before those of any potential employee.
The environment is to make due with what you have and that's reflected in the lack of support for employees. They are almost constantly hiring, because they go through so many people, so quickly. Like most large corporations you're just one tiny cog in the machine.
The best part of the job, by far, is the people that you meet and work with.
The worst has to be the amount of abuse that people are subjected to day in and day out from customers and the lack of support from management.
It's sad that the expectations for employees are that they are empathetic and understanding of customers, but that is not afforded to employees by management. This organizational failing is from the top-down, so there is no quick fix. It would require a complete workplace culture change and I don't see that happening.
Learned a lot about dealing with people
Work itself is not rewarding, employees are not appreciated, grinds through people
Working at National Money Mart was a great opportunity to build on many different skills. As a CSR at a busier branch, there were many responsibilities beyond breaking sales targets and balancing cash. Audits were to be competed weekly, the right amount of cash had to be ordered on time, collections calls and targets must be completed. The stores typically serve a neighborhood, so often times you would get to know the customers and complete Western Union transfers and gold appraisals for them. Working exclusively open or close, coupled with the generous amount of hours I was given, allowed me to become fully immersed in the job. My ability to multi-task, memory, count cash, typing, selling, collecting over the phone, and customer service were all greatly increased.
Management was very supportive and always rewarded strong sales performance. I was even given football tickets, which I felt was a really great reward.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Sarnia, ON – 21 July 2017
Do not work here unless you want your mental health to deteriorate. Your customers and the scum of the city who will often threaten your life, belittle you, and sometimes be waiting for you after work. If you tell management you do not feel safe, they just laugh it off and don't care. And then the people you work with are a bunch of gossiping high school girls where the environment is nothing but drama. Management is a joke and plays favourites. District manager is an even bigger joke who struggles with a power struggle. The fact that there's a 24 hour suicide hotline says something. This job is not worth the little money you end up making.

Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Ajax, ON – 20 June 2017
It is a good company for people who don't have kids, due to the hours. You have to work multiple evenings and weekends, and doubles. They do not give you breaks which is just like Cash Money as well. At least Money Mart doesn't make you sign a paper saying they gave you a break when they didn't like Cash Money does.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 25 April 2017
Moneymart is a step higher than retail. Its semi-professional. Customers vary depending on the location, staffs are usually friendly and trouble free. Your chances of been promoted depends totally on you been liked by your Manager/DM and your productivity.
