It was not Friendy Company
Sales Admin (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC5 November 2018
As the Sales Administrator I had accountable for controlling all internal and external documentation pertinent to Sales in order to maximize revenue and ensure that the equipment shipments and billing are accurately and efficiently processed within the scheduled time frames. It was too much job with minimum range of salary,too much pressure on unfriendly environment and your supervisor always put the finger on you and make you uncomfortable.how ever it was not good experience and Never want to back over there even they offer the good job to me!
Pros
no
Cons
boring

overall it is good place to start
Websphere/LotusNotes/BES admin/developer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON23 October 2018
was working in IT for almost 9 years. Be honest, it was an easy job in a friendly team with manaers and directors not so demanding ( compared with those I met in last 5 years ). Though one thing to keep in mind is employee espcially young guys, need to think about if they can earn enough wealth to retire :-)

Commercial Account Representative (Former Employee) –  Kitchener-Waterloo, ON18 October 2018
As an account executive there is a lot of training and development that goes on with this position, the managers are helpful with developing their staff's skillsets but the roll can be hard.

Business Development Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON11 October 2018
It depends on which manager you get to work with, all managers have different working styles. Minimal interaction with the management. Expectations are high. Industry is such which is not a priority for the customers.
Pros
Brand Name
Cons
Base pay

Company functions such as Christmas parties where fantastic
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON2 October 2018
My roll as a Customer service representative involved a lot of travel.
I learned mechanical, electrical and computer skills on a ongoing basis, as well as positive customer relation.
The most enjoyable part of the job was solving a very intricate problem utilizing all my skills and resources.
Pros
Worked alone 100 percent of the time, but had to maintain successful results.
Cons
Working in different environments from unheated warehouses to beautiful offices.

Minimal supervision, high expectations
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  GTA, ON16 September 2018
Most days are different from the last as there are a large number of different vendors and equipment that require service.
Constant training and retraining as equipment and configurations are added to the portfolio.
Minimal interaction with office and management. Constant interaction with customers and clients.
24hrs on call was the most difficult part of the job.

Poor support for sales efforts
ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE-BUSINESS SOLUTIONS DIVISION (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC5 July 2018
Canon is a great company however, the photocopier sales division is severely out of touch with the market. They push hard on over priced machines sold from Canon but allow their own dealers to undercut them. They then turn to the sales person and say, "Why can't you sell this?".
Their outdated sales portal looks like something out of 1998; and is not effective at achieving sales goals.
Associates are drastically under paid, asked to drive long distances, and are often left paying out of pocket just to accomplish the goals.
The management seems to be afraid of their senior leadership that is humorously flawed in their approach, and refuses to say anything about it. In 2018, they have 0 online support in marketing their products.
