Great middle management but business has lost direction
Senior Listing Services Representative (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 2 March 2018
Working at YP was great while it lasted, my colleagues and management team helped me grow and acquire countless skills. However the business is taking a direction where the reaction to short-term challenges is worsening the long-term challenges that are key to a successful digital transition for the business. The only certitude at YP is chaos.
Good benefits, positive management style
Broken corporate culture, no vision, chaotic perpetual transitional phase ongoing, no continuity

Yellow Pages is good place to learn and improve your soft and technical skills. Pressure of the work varies week by week and depends on the number of projects the company decides to implement. However, job security is too low and they recently laid off 500 people.
CERTIFIED ADVERTISING MEDIA CONSULTANT (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 23 January 2018
I loved my job for the first 5 years but due to market changes, the culture of the organization changed dramatically. Manager was extremely inept and made the position a challenge. Environment became toxic. Was relieved to leave after many years....
Clerk (Current Employee) – Scarborough – 22 January 2018
Yellow Pages used to be a good company. The new CEO came in fired everyone with only the minimum under the employment standards act. This company is a sinking ship and everyone really needs to get off the boat.
We use to have free parking, not anymore. The new location is awful if you live on South Shore. With every New SEO expect tons of layoffs .People are friendly and qualified! It was pleasure working with such a great people!
Productive and changing to meet new technology and client demands
Sr. Marketing & Sales Media Consultant (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 14 January 2018
Overall high satisfaction, with my several years with YPG, and the other Companies it was previous to being purchased by YPG. Above average training and benefits provided. Typically worked with little to no supervision, as our Alberta Team is small. YPG, had moved all Employees, across the country several years ago to home office aside from Head Office in Toronto. Good work to life balance.
Account Coordinator/Sales Support (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 5 January 2018
A typical day at work would entail a lot of repetition. I learned a lot about customer service in my time at YP. The work culture was great within my department. The hardest part of the job was adapting to all the changes while the company was going through restructuring.
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 9 December 2017
If you are looking to make lots of money and willing to sacrifice general career development, take this role. It's not easy and will teach you the entire sales process of SDR (hunting), account executive (closing sales), account manager (maintaining customers), and retention. If you can handle the stress and monotonous tasks, it's a great place to cut your teeth.
Media Account Consultant (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 28 November 2017
Too many accounts to do a great job of managing and rep's are forced to provide poor customer service. Admin-heavy with the amount you're on the road, you don't have enough hours in the week to accomplish great territory management.
stressful environment, always angry customers, always doing damage control
Great people, Great commission structure (2017), Dont be late. Ever.
Media Accounts Consultant (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 15 November 2017
Company full of top sales talent and people that love what they do. Most leave because they were late or took too many sick days. If you can grind as hard as the top talent, you'll be very wealthy and work with some of the most impressive partnerships that any marketing company could dream of.
Crazy monthly and quarterly incentives, Great people
You need to work at least 10 hours a day, no leniency with adherence
