Worst Place to work in..
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONJuly 13, 2016
A very small company to start with Very few campaigns... But the attitude is like they are one of the global five. Campaigns closing frequently and the people from one campaign pushed to the other campaigns with the result that personnel from the existing being laid off on flimsy reasons like bad customer experience, performance etc... When they want to remove a person to accommodate the people from the other campaign. Given unrealistic targets to be achieved and then laid off saying that their performance was not upto the mark.
Cons
Schedules being changed frequently/ unreasonable lunch timing start at 9.00 am lunch at 3.30 pm.

Worst company i have ever worked for
Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONMay 16, 2016
First of all i wish there was a negative star as well for this company. Honestly the worst company i have worked for.. Cant even explain how bad this company is... They ask you to call people who dont even know how to talk first of all, and then sell them stupid insurance( oh m sorry its a pro active product according to them)..!! 3 days of training though they say 5 days and then they put on phones...!! All they crave for is sales from you... If u r good at sales they will like u otherwise b prepared to get tortured from the stupid supervisors who dont even know wat they r doing.. Supervisor talks on the floor n make jokes which makes the other person so uncomfortable... Partiality Is to the core... Few people next to you will b just sitting doing nothing n getting paid n u keep on taking calls like a fool...!! Honestly dont even waste ur time going to this company. Factory jobs r much better...

Worst Place to work
csr (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONDecember 1, 2015
Very small call centre with hardly 2 campaigns. Nothing to learn and nobody knows that when u are out. Heavily recruiting for Christmas...... but after that they are going to lay off. Managers and supervisors fear to take escalated calls. No stand for employees. Can be used as a filler job.....cannot be with this for long run.

Worst Place ever management sucks horrible disgusting work place
sales customer service (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QCNovember 24, 2015
This job consist receiving inbound calls and up selling a product, while also retaining customers that want to cancel. The job wasn't that hard and meeting sales target depends on you also..that aside management was the main reason people leave since it's absolutely horrible. One person is handling this office and has to do everything such as supervision of sales department, checking call cue, handling training and payroll..that's a lot of work for one person and with that comes a lot of stress and that's where the problem is. This one man team can't dead with all the responsibilities and forgets a lot and transfers the stress to agent doing thier job by screaming, Doing kung foo moves behind thier back and by messing up thier pay. Honestly anyone can handle everything except the pay; when it takes more then three payrolls to recieve a week of pay somethings wrong + when that pay is still incorrect you remain fustrated and of course the supervisor offers no apologies..pathetic.
I left this place because It's management sucks, it's very dirty they don't clean the microwave NEVER "eww", Pay will always be incorrect and please verify your commission they like to mess that up as well.
Even after leaving the company they dont send you the 4 % ( Vacation pay) that they remove from the pay check. They do not follow the conditions of "Les Normes de Travail de Québec" . If nothing changes they'll be in court soon.
Pros
Most of the people who work their are nice smart people wonderful coworkers.
Cons
Management, Pay is never exact, Takes 3 pay periods to get a correct pay that still isn't correct, Dirty place, no health benefits, No secretary

Bilingual Customer Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONApril 7, 2015
some incoming and outgoing calls that required attention to detail. grouped with supportive staff and encouraging manager. the worst part of my job were the late hours I would be assigned. the greatest part of my day was not only resolving complication on the phone but assisting other staff with some of their complications also.
Pros
much overtime
Cons
wage cap.

Okay entry level, poor management positions - poor overall
Sales Coach (Former Employee) –  ScarboroughNovember 11, 2014
I worked at Simpro a few years ago as a "Sales Coach." Typical day would be training new call centre agents and providing feedback on their progress. Would also supervisor the floor when needed. The management is very poor overall. The senior TL is an amazing person and a wonderful leader however, other management is very poor and battle to prove they are better than you. Other co-workers were pretty cool but a lot of political BS. Hardest part of the job was leaving behind new friends and my boss. Having to have met a few great people which still keep in touch. This is not a long term position, especially if you already have a solid experience portfolio.
Pros
senior team lead is a great boss and an excellent role model and decent hours.
Cons
very low pay, no benefits, poor management, not long term

Sales Coach (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ONApril 7, 2014
A typical day at work consisted of me training and preparing trainees for the sales floor. I managed them for an incubation period of 2 weeks and provided an individual assessment of their production.
My co-workers and I worked together as the process requires a team effort.
The hardest part of my job was firing trainees who did not succeed in their incubation period.
The most enjoyable part of my day was working with the trainees directly, developing incentives and making our teams daily target!
Pros
managers outings
Cons
no time for lunch, too busy

uncomfortable, discouraging and disgusting work environment. Despicable staff.
iinside sales (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, Ontario.January 1, 2014
Horrible place to work. Good place to socialize. Team leaders are incompetent with poor to little appreciation for talent. Overall,management is severly illmannerred and could benefit from a course in etiquette and social skills. Call center smells and could do with new equipment, furniture and a cleaning. Basically put if you are not keen on hygiene, skill or good manners, this is the place for you.
Pros
unskilled employees. easy to make an impression.
Cons
eight hour shift. 1 15 min break. 1/2hr lunch.
