Technician (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 9 January 2013
A typical day as a technician for Canada Computers will keep you busy. There is always a ton of computers to be fixed, defective hardware to be tested, steady questions from customers, and occasionally some custom computer builds for customers.
This is a good position to help grow your knowledge and to stay current with technology and tools.
The management is top notch for all 4 stores in Ottawa. The best part is, as a technician, you are free to fix things how you like. You aren't micro managed and they rarely bother you or give you any kind of hard time.
The co workers are awesome too and very much into new tech and toys. The staff made it fun to come to work!
The hardest part of the job was dealing with very technical questions from customers both on the phone and in person, while doing returns, and still trying to fix computers through out the day. Its hard to balance it all. If I couldve been locked in a room and just fixed computers, it wouldve been a lot easier.
The best part was the freedom to use your own techniques and software. They provide everything you need, and have parts readily available for testing. The more money you bring in for service revenue, the bigger your bonus is.

Dont even bother working at this place. Bad environment, no raises, no improvement, no support, no room for growth, bad discounts, force you to push warranty for every item and if you dont sell any you will get scolded for it.
you get paid
entire working experience about the job is bad, I would refrain from working at this place. They expect more than you will get paid realistically.
