Bad management, depressing work, low benefits
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 April 2019
You're hired by a certain manager for the company and work for their 'team'. With your team, you fund raise for different campaigns and companies, depending on the season.
The management is horrible. You are berated constantly if you aren't lucky enough to get a sale or donation (and it is all luck basically). You learn disgusting manipulation tactics and will be belittled for being even a minute late. It's a very depressing, toxic, and lifeless environment. I wouldn't recommend ANYONE work here, go deliver food or something instead because you won't get the commission bonuses unless you decide to become a lifer.
Speaking of which, everyone who works there is a lifer as well, adding to the sadness of it all. Lotto tickets and scratchers are used as incentives for people to hit the sales goal. If you talk to any of your co-workers at all during your shift, you'll probably get chewed out by the manager. You also get constant threats of being fired if you don't get enough sales, show up 1-5 minutes late, or talk back, disobey or show any discontent to the manager at all. The managers show fake smiles and laughs, behind all of it is a ruthless character. On top of all of this, the actual office is dirty, gray and drab as well.
This job literally put me into depression.
Short shifts, no excruciating work (you just sit there and call)
Horrible management and bosses, horrible pay, very non-friendly work environment, depressing
