Owner/Director (Former Employee), Thunder Bay, ONNovember 5, 2012
Pros: incredible support, internally and nationally
Cons: shoud pay better
At Young Drivers you interact with many skilled workers, office, sales, instruction while dealing with the public. Each client has a new story, special need or custom desire.
I streeched my public relations skills, public presentation skills and learned the pitfalls of advertising. I took on a community leadership role with appointments to Community – more... Boards such as Credit Unions and Crimestoppers.
The hardest part of the job was accepting that an employee could not or would not follow policies, procedures and professional standards. Terminating employees is not a pleasant task.
The most enjoyable part of this position was sharing with my peers at National and regional conventions and competitions. Young Drivers, at the time, conducted annual Young Driver's Rallies with up to 20 participants, all under 25, demonstrating their skills. – less
