Worst company every
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Burlington, ON30 November 2018
Management is a joke here. It's all about hierachy and less about substance. No decisions are made with long term impacts in mind. They constantly just react to all the problems they cause with their bad decisions. They went with a new billing system provider which resulted in people's services being 'lost'. It's a certainty that the upper execs take kickbacks from the vendors. It's a culture of scare and destroy if you dare to say something 'against the party line'. Avoid at all costs.
Pros
Discounted services
Cons
No upper management competency; fearful environment

Animatrice, chargée de projet et recherchiste (Former Employee) –  Saint-Jérôme, QC23 July 2017
En tant que recherchiste, animatrice et chargée de projets d'émissions spéciales c'est un métier sur lequel il ne faut pas compter ses heures. Toujours être à l'affût des nouvelles informations culturelles, politique, sportives, générales. Gérer les informations et préparer un plan de diffusion au quotidien avec une équipe formidable. Quel agréable tâche !

Productive and friendly workplace
Call Centre Representative (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON2 March 2017
Most days were the same, occasionally you'd get a long, or difficult call. I learned a lot about how those types of services work and how to go about calling into service company s, also i learned how to talk on the phone as I used to dislike phone calls. The hardest part of the job was getting a call about something you've never done before and having to get help or figure it out without the customer becoming irate. the most enjoyable part was probably the people, between nice customers you meet over the phone and the people you worked with it was normally a very pleasant environment.

You aren't a person there, you're a number... Worst Employer
Technical Support Representative (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON14 October 2014
Lots of dsigruntled customer's to deal with. You have to make AHT goals of 6 minutes/call or the management will harass you. And when they eventually do fire you, you can count on no severance pay at all. The Managers only cover their own backsides there. When you are reviewed each year, the have a lofty mathematical equation to determine if you get a raise or bonus each year. How impersonal...

I can't believe I worked there for so long.

Now they pay people there $13/hr, I started at 15.50 and is still was not worth even when I made $18/hr.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything above and more.

If you like sales...this is the place for you!
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON17 September 2012
Provided lots of training and coaching prior to starting 'on the floor' answering phones.
It's a good starting wage for little education needed, however some supervisors were not all that bright or professional.
Not a job for someone who doesn't like every second of their work day planned for you, there is a high level of quality control so lots of room for error. Supervisors give a lot of feedback, so you know when you have done something wrong.

There were lots of incentives for hitting sales targets and a generally high morale for a call centre. Not the job for me, but I would recommend to others who enjoy sales and talking on the phone.
Pros
good wage, benefits, fair schedules
Cons
repetitive tasks, boring, no freedom
