Work hard and work even harder
Area Manager (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 19 March 2018
If you're willing to put in endless hours, dedicate your life to this job, and have the area manager role take a serious physical toll on your body, then you may survive in this role. Usually work 60 hours within 4 days on shift, frequently asked to do projects on my days off, my manager has contacted us at 2am before to insist we come in on a day we've previously booked off and had plans for. Pay and benefits are good but other than that I can't say many positives. Although you're pretty much guaranteed promotions from Level 4 to 5 to 6 within 2-3 years of joining as a Level 4 Area Manager, by the time those promotions will come around you may not still be with the company - if you last a year you're a champ.
Pay, benefits, brand on resume.
Long hours, no work life balance, extremely demanding, degrading management, sheer exhaustion, severe physical toll on body, 12-15 hrs a day standing, 10km a day walking in safety shoes
