Typical customer service job in a contact centre environment for a large corporation
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC3 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.
Pros
Learned a lot about dealing with people
Cons
Work itself is not rewarding, employees are not appreciated, grinds through people

Money Mart
CSR (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON29 July 2017
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.

Very positive experience.
Pros
-Great managment

It really depends on your team whether or not you'll enjoy working here. The company is constantly changing, which can be frustrating for your team as well as your customers that you are serving.

A joke of an establishment
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Sarnia, ON21 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.

Good for People who dont have chldren
Branch Manager (Former Employee) –  Ajax, ON20 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.
Pros
offers incentives and bonuses
Cons
No breaks

The job itself was not terrible but the sales targets can be a little unrealistic, as you are trying to advance money to clients that don't have any to begin with

I love working at Money Mart. You learn a lot, and it will give you lots of experience in a lot of things. It is sales driven and a bit stressful. It is 100% all about customer service. It's fast pace with lots of deadlines to hit.

Terrible experience
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON23 March 2017
- Inadequate training. They have you sit in front of a computer for a few weeks reading slide after slide. I was supposed to have hands on training as well but it was almost entirely neglected.

- Unfriendly environment. Many times I would hear complaints about interactions between stores; stealing customers, stealing office supplies, and general disdain of many co-workers seemed to be a thing.

- Questionably ethical. Worst part of the job was the job itself; loans aimed at taking advantage of those having financial difficulties. There's a reason why the government is stepping in and lowering the interest rates.
Pros
Money handling experience
Cons
Unethical

Good job if you dont have a family.
Manager in Training (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON13 March 2017
Expectations are too high for what they pay. Also, working alone makes it difficult if yourself or family has an emergency because you cannot leave. 90% of the time you work alone. Poor management. You and others can complain about management and they will do nothing. I did the managers job for almost a year and he was always late to change shifts and they still kept him on and wouldn't pay me what was promised when I was hired. I wouldn't work for them again. Though I learned a lot in the time I was with them. Also, a lot of drama even with the manager. He spreads rumours and discusses things that aren't his business to customers. Very childish environment. Job here is good for high school and college students!
Pros
Quick advancement if you do your job
Cons
Can't take days off and working alone
