Media Consultant (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 22 April 2017
Get ready to get yelled at and guilt trip. Had a bad day, you didn't make enough calls, had a great day, imagine if you would've made more calls. The pay is great, no job security, they always hire new employees to replace the one that doesn't have a ''yes man'' attitude to avoid having to give them their permanency.
MULTIMEDIA CONTENT AGENT (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 14 September 2016
no job security a corporation that does not care about employees no feedback from management and no coordination between offices terrible communication and compensation was lackluster pros: great benefits Cons: management poor communication very unprofessional

Specialist Business & Listing Services (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 29 July 2016
I loved working for the company. Great people to work with. I learned so much over the years, i.e. advertising, customer service, different systems, etc. Unfortunately, I had to resign from the company as we moved to another province.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 13 July 2016
Horrible sales director with a self serving attitude she either likes you or your out. sales and results don't matter as the company would rather have you play dress up or dance like an idiot then make money. RELENTLESS amounts of cold calling to the same client some times multiple times a day. Do your self a favor and skip this place
Analyst (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 6 July 2016
The politics in this place is outrageous. Management does not listen and HR is virtually useless Management does not have accountability Disadvantaged if working in the Toronto office, Montreal employees have better employment opportunites No job security; you can be laid off for unjust reasons Most employees who had been in the company (10yrs +) for a while are very egotistical Not a team enviroment, it's who-can-be-blamed-for-failures -environment.
Acquisition Prospect Agent (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 July 2016
I mean that, best work parties I've ever attended is here in this company. The benefits are incredible and you're unionized as well but probation is 1 long year. Would love to work at this company again if given the chance. Commissions are best I've ever seen as well.
Certified Media Account Consultant (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 15 June 2016
there isn't much of a work/life balance, but you will get paid extremely well. About 25% of sales representatives exceed their sales goals and they will make over $100K a year. You will receive a lot of training (expect to take 2-3 days off for training every month) as well as completing online courses in your free time and this can be very difficult to manage when you have a full 7 day a week work schedule.
Client Relations Representative/Risk Management (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 27 May 2016
The knowledge and information sharing at the Yellow Pages has not been surpassed by any other employer. The staff was involved and attentive. The range of opportunities allowed you to go anywhere in the company and I believed in the product.
My day always begins with good morning and a smile to my team and ends with good night...and a smile to the team! As a leader, it is important for me to set the right tone with my employees at the start and end of the day. Being positive and upbeat is a part of my nature and always being sure to set the right example every minute of the day. 80% of my day is spent supporting my team and 20% of admin and reports.
I learned to value each employee as being truly unique and genuinely want to do a good job.
Management to me is leadership.
My co-workers are my left and right hands.
The hardest part of my job is working with employees who have no desire and see the glass as 'half empty'. I this as a challenge to find the magic key that unlocks their inner potential and turns them around.
The best part of my job is my employees for I genuinely want to see them succeed.If I do my job well, they will be happy and that will lead to good results and ultimately...their success!
Working with people with diverse experiences across all cultures
Depending on the amount of work, the schedule is flexible within reason and there is always work to be done.
Developed greatly my customer approach on the phone and great understanding of SEM products and data analysis.
Depending on your immediate supervisors, work atmosphere is relax and focused on reaching long and short term objectives.
New waves of employees are younger as well as more and more knowledgeable on PPC, SEO & Social Media services. The company foster in-team cooperation which enables fast personal growth and a great learning environment.
The hardest part of the job would be to relentlessly answer/manage internal communication which are often unnecessary to our individual work and portfolio of accounts.
The most enjoyable part of the job is having meaningful conversations with clients actively invested in their product with us. When they correctly inform us is when we thrive to our work.
If you enjoy office politics and negative atmosphere...
Marketing Specialist (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 15 March 2016
There is little leadership from upper management and most Sr. Executives lack the qualifications to be in their roles. The company is desperately trying to become 'digital' to remain relevant but simply aren't succeeding.
They pay well, but that is simply the only reason most people stay. The culture, especially in Burnaby, is about as exciting and engaging as a funeral.
The physical environment is dull grey and badly outdated. They really need to move to more modern surroundings. God forbid that there is any laughter, music or noise!
Last year they installed televisions throughout the building, but they only show YP propaganda. They spent money to create employee 'lounge' areas where people could socialize, then turned them into quiet spaces where no talking is allowed. They just empty.
