The job itself was great. Had I not been laid off, I would still be there.

Management at the time was terrible but since working there, that particular individual has moved on.


Office people were very nice. Technicians were great.

As a installer or a service and maintenance tech at direct energy the expectations to get sales leads and help generate revenue are far greater then any other trades related work you’ll be doing. In fact if you’re not one of the top producers as far as revenue goes they will cut your hours and give work only to those who can sell . Ethically or not .

Start @ 7:30 print off pay pay and Moneris
match money and jobs

Learned how to match the jobs with the invoices and how to correct the invoices.

Management wasn't that great.

was dealing with office politics

Most enjoyable part was listening to how others handled Customers on the phone.

I have been working at Aventura Marketing full-time for more than a year

No Doubt, THE BEST Place to work! I really appreciate and thank you so much for all of the opportunities this company has provided me which has not only helped but, is helping me to grow technically, professionally as well as personally. I have learned so much in this past 1 year (and still learning from this great place), and will never forget the kindness of management and all of my colleagues. Aventura Marketing is just filled with lots of opportunities at every level of career. Awesome people to work with, always ready to help, encourage and support.
Cons
Haven't found any cons till date

You will work shifts that are very regimented and off hours with no flexibility.
You will be told to sell sell sell daily.

You will pay Union dues that support people who have no interest in your well being.

You will hate this job.

You will find out the hard way if you work here.

Dishonesty and greed is the company mind set.


Good luck
Pros
Good Benefits

You have to be aware of your time access card and be at your computers at the correct time. You have to watch your pay stub as you would work on the holidays and still not get paid for holiday payment. As well as your bathroom breaks consider is your lunch break and a part of your 15 minute break oh, so that means you be deducted money
Pros
If it's someone's birthday you get cake
Cons
Don't work on holidays, and watch your pay

we would meet at the marketing branch and typically speak about our goals and how we would obtain them. I would forecast the locations and apply a strategy to make the most sales

Was great, learned a lot at this company and had many mentors. Our division was eventually shut down and relocated to the US where operations continued.

It was a nice place to work at, and I learned a lot of new skills. I did not wish to continue there as I was searching for something that required more hands on work.

Typical day resulted into making calls and taking calls in order to close the sales to earn commission. Sales job that requires a unique selling style into making customers "want" into "needs"
