The main thing that makes a company wonderful for are the people that work for it. I made many friendships while I was at CST that I hope to maintain as I move forward.

100% commission and leads you have to pay for
You have to hunt down customers with 95% cold calls, and you have to pay for leads, you are dependent on people actually being financially responsible because if they don’t pay their monthly fees your commissions get clawed back but it doesn’t come off your T4
Cons
Claw backs on commissions

Outstanding Organization on Every Level
Flexible work schedule that requires self motivation, determination and consistency in independent sales. I absolutely love the rapport of the organization and ongoing leadership support. Having the opportunity to educate families on the best decision they will make for a child's future is truly rewarding.

CST has it’s benefits but you’re always waiting for the shoe to drop
Every year around October they lay people off and call it “restructuring” right before its time to pay out the bonuses.

The amount of stress is not worth the pay they give and never knowing if you’ll make it past October cuts makes it worse so you push yourself even when you’re sick.

Sales Representative - Amazing Company with a Great Mission!
Been with CST for about 3 years now and it seems to always be improving! So glad I don't have to sit in an office 50+ hours a week and instead can work remote, make my own hours, and do lots of travel around Ontario. The company and people are great and the mission and company values are something I can actually get behind.
Pros
No cold calling, all leads warmed through partnerships, uncapped commission, flexible hours, can take vacation whenever
Cons
fully commission based... while it is not difficult to book appointments and meet with families, if you are not self-motivated and have good time-management, its possible to fall behind.

Ok
It was a nice place to work at with low salary and minimum advancement opportunities.
But I was working as an entry level employee, so it could be different once you get promoted eventually.

Productive and really busy environment
Great team to work with and there are a lot of team meetings and one on one meeting with your managers to make sure you have all the procedures down right and it is a very productive environment. It gets very busy in the summer time June-Sept because kids are starting post secondary so be warned to have 15 calls waiting in queue and have a lot of angry customers due to the wait time.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
very busy, sometime miss your break
