A great company to work for! I enjoy complete autonomy.
Home Service Representative/Technician (Current Employee), Massey, ON to St. Joseph's Island, ON – June 3, 2014
Pros: being able to arrange my own schedule
Cons: sometimes not being busy enough, therefore inadequate income, as i am paid per job.
My position at Philips Lifeline is as a Home Service Representative/Technician. As such, I am considered a contractual employee. My supervisor is the Production Manager. I report to HSR support with date and time of appointment I had scheduled with the subscriber. A work order is emailed to me, and I contact the subscriber and book a mutually convenient – more... appointment to either install or service Lifeline's equipment. There was not a typical day at work. Every day was different. My co-workers are the response centre team; people I usually only got to know over the phone, but we have a great working relationship! I really enjoy working with people and the majority of my clients are seniors, who I find delightful, and given my time spent in the Veterinary field, if the subscriber has any pets, I consider that a bonus! The hardest part is trying to convince these people that Lifeline is there to help them and it is not because they are "old" or can no longer be independent. I call it Auto Club for your home. – less

Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), Kennesaw, GA – November 19, 2013
Management was a huge problem with Respironics. There was a hostile employee that was not dealt with appropriately, and for that reason, I felt I had no option but to resign without notice after being talked out of resigning numerous times.
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – November 6, 2013
Pros: free lunches, had a nice 'quiet room'.
Cons: colleague stealing your sale, there was not a very good system in place to help stop that.
The job was taking inbound calls from either seniors or the physically challenged or their families to get information about how the Philips Lifeline Personal Emergency Button worked to provide the client a safe home environment.
I loved talking to different people from all over the country and helping them remain safe in their homes and provide relief – more... from worry for the family. – less
Thoroughly enjoyed working at Philips because of the people and my immediate manager. It was a great learning experience!
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), St. Laurent, QC – June 17, 2013
After 1.5 years at Philips it was truly a sad day when they announced the plans to close the Montreal office and transfer the Business Centre to Markham, ON. I thoroughly enjoyed working there, mostly because of the work ambiance. My colleagues were great to work with, and we formed wonderful bonds.
My manager was extremely professional and she was – more... a great mentor for me as well.
There were days when the job was very stressful and busy, but we worked well as a team and always encouraged each other through the more difficult periods.
I would have stayed on there for many more years! – less

Contracts Manager (Current Employee), Foster City, CA – June 28, 2014
This is a great company to work for. Unfortunately, you need to be in Andover or Seattle for many of the opportunities for advancement. But if you are willing to do move, it's definitely a great company to stay at for years and years.
