CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) –  BC27 July 2017
Don't kid yourself, this is a tough job.

It is heavy and dirty with long days.

The managers are, individually, nice guys, but as a company collective, hard on the CSR staff.

It pays well though, and has a moderate benefit package.
Pros
pay/benefits
Cons
long tough hours, demoralizing in ways.

This job is toward people without family
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON10 June 2017
A place to work, if you are single and do not have family. There is no set time getting off your shift. Be prepared to work heavily. Lifting heavy loads everyday and balancing accounts with customer service. It may not suit your lifestyle, be aware of this.
Pros
Salary
Cons
Enviroment and everything else

It's a factory job. You'll be paid little and taken advantage of.
Camp Receive (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB31 January 2017
Overall it's a tough job that ages you quickly. Management only cares about the pennies they can save.

Several hours of overtime is to be expected every week without any prior notice.

Expect to work holidays and not be paid overtime for your first three months.
