Inside Sales Representitive is very misleading. It is the retention department; Angry, volatile, verbally abusive customers 90% of the time.
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 15 October 2016
The only selling in this position is upselling. Title very misleading. No time for family. Department Management is amazing-some supervisors very choosy; Favorites are clear and given special treatment, better shifts etc. Not allotted enough time to properly deal with customer issues and concerns. Reliance is getting too big too fast; Swallowing up smaller companies but not being fully prepared to deal with ramifications of poor contracts or agreements from said companies.
Amazing co workers, Pay is not horrible but nothing to write home about.

While working at reliance..it was great except when the client had issues and you cannot work you don't get paid for the time that you spend with tech...took too long to help it's CSR's not a lot of respect from the other areas of reliance...would not work for them again unless getting paid for my time spent with tech especially when its a client issue
Enjoyable work place with great sales motivation and benefits.

Operation Manager (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 10 November 2016
Looking at reports. Co-workers are in it for themselves. Direct reports just want to do a good job. Management are only concerned about how many boxes left the warehouse. Being in the field were very enjoyable.

Hard work is recognized with plenty of advancements. Training options. The latest tools and technology. Working with a great team and great upper management. Fast paced and always a new challenge presented everyday.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 13 June 2016
I was in Billing and Service for 11 years and during the first 2 years I did many jobs in the call center. I was in accounts receivable, Sales and mail departments. A typical day would be billing and service. explaining the bill and adjusting on line with customer when needed. Available for aprox. 30 calls per hour. We had maximum of 5 minutes to completed the call. Notes also had to be done online. In Service we had to set up Service Calls for Furnices and A/C and Hot Water Tanks. We had to also think outside the box and be prepared to answer all requests and questions for both Billing and Service. I also sold Service Protection Plans on every call. I was usually top sales and top calls for the month.
benefits plus plus a 3 week holiday
Not many. However, the odd time I had to work midnights to morning if the other call Centers were do
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 31 October 2016
What this company espouses to its perspective employees vs the reality of the work culture is worlds apart. A ridiculous turn style approach for middle management as far as job security. There are training opportunities but the office culture is toxic and predatory.
Worklife balance is non existent. 14-15 hr days.
Management direction was inconsistent. Often directives were in direct opposition to one another.
Office admin staff were friendly, helpful and generally terrific people. Fellow managers were morally reprehensible. Spoke ill of their team and often meeting conversations ended up with a focus on terminating the lowest hanging fruit.
Business ethics of the company were questionable. Very hard to be an ambassador when one doesn't agree with how the company processes affect its customers.
Most rewarding part of the job was resolving customer issues with care and dedication as well as follow up. Developing the team in positive ways and seeing the improvement was gratifying.
Bonus structure was generous
Long hours, intimidation tactics for motivating employees, poor office management culture
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 March 2016
This job is really good for someone who wants a completely flexible schedule but also isnt looking to work 40 hours a week. The pay is good but be prepared to give up 10 percent of it to your IBO. Also the three week training is a bit much IMO.
Rental Inside Sale Advisor (Current Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 4 January 2016
I have improved upon my skills in sales. knowing what a customer need from what its is they wants plays a big roll in my success. The hardest part of my job is not been able to work outside the perimeters of my company's policy to retain and or prevent an escalated concern.
Home Comfort Advisor (Former Employee) – Windsor – 31 August 2015
In the HVAC Sales position, they feed only the top producer and the top producer is only the top producer because she is fed. Sales manager is terrible. No communication between departments. Do not plan on making any money. It's 100% commission and no compansation for gas or mileage. You drive to appointments made by call center in TO, and no one is home when you arrive or they are not expecting a quote they think you are there for service.
