Financial Advisor (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 October 2013
A typical day at work would involve cold calling, warm calling and referral calling. This allows to keep a flow of meetings going on a weekly basis, resulting in a flow of sales. I learned how to act in a professional, unbiased and ethical manner. My management has been extremely supportive and supported all my decisions. I have never worked with such an easy going group of people in my life. Never has there been one issue. The hardest part of the job is the off chance of not receiving an income (as it is commission based only). The most enjoyable part of this job has been the education I've learned, the people I have met and at the atmosphere.

I truly enjoyed working for SunLife in Ottawa for almost 19 years. I would have continued to work until retirement at the company if I had not relocated to another city to follow my spouse and his career advancement.
great atmosphere and wonderful colleagues

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 August 2017
This is very similar to my job at Ernst and Young. Worked for upper management - they really appreciated my fast turn around of tasks. I tried always to make them look awesome and in turn make my job great.

The job may have given you time to spend at home but the call center industry is not for everybody. It is a highly stressful job that deals on most days with escalation as the calls that you receive are mostly people who are disabled or sick needing their money.
It challenges me and polishes my communication skill and organize.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 6 August 2017
A typical day of making phone calls to companies. I enjoyed working with my teammates but had such a change over in managers while I was there. I thought this was my forever job till the market tanked in the US.
Good corporate culture and benefits. Ability to meet new and interesting people and to develop yourself professionally. Requires much autonomy as in most corporate positions but this allows for you to develop at a much quicker pace. Keep motivated and determined and there is no limit to your success when well planned for.
