Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 September 2012
A typical day at work for me consists of answering anywhere from 500 to 850 calls per day, and allocating them to the proper locations within the branch or to other branches throughout the city. As well, processing and checking upwards of 900+ invoices per day. I've learned so much with this company. Firstly, and most proudly, I've learned to better my communication skills, and my understanding with any and all personality types I encounter. Whether it be customers or co-workers, I encounter all types, from angry, to disgruntled, to happy, to unsure, and so on. I've learned to listen to two things at once and comprehend both that I am listening to, and respond appropriately. I've greatly enhanced my ability to multitask. Although it is said multitasking is not real, it cannot happen, I don't believe that for a second. I do it every day, all day. Without it, I would never get all my work done. The hardest part of the job may seem a bit trivial to some, but for me it's so very important, and something I hope will be rectified with meetings and possibly training. There is a great lack of appreciation for a job well done, extra work completed, overtime worked. I do all of these, (The overtime worked I do not get paid for, nor do I get time in lieu, it's all on my time that this is done.), not because I want a pat on the back each time I do something, that would be awkward and insincere. I do all of these things because I want to contribute what I can to keep my co-workers and supervisors happy and content that when they need something from what I'm doing, it is easily accessible.more... It makes their stress load a bit less. I like to see happy people, and will always do my best to ensure that happens with the people around me. A simple thank you once in a while would do wonders for me, but that never happens. I only hear something they want to complain about, and what is done properly, correctly, and in order right in front of their faces is completely ignored. It's hard to hear the bad all the time, especially when it's made up just because the person needs something to complain about and someone to vent on, and never hear the good. What you hear is "just do it, you get profit sharing.". The most enjoyable part of my job is helping others. Whether it be customers and/or co-workers, I love the ability of being able to assist and hopefully put the smile on everyone's face that I encounter. As well, I enjoy so much that my job is so busy all the time. There is no time to be a clock watcher at all. As well, it's a daily challenge I set for myself, to accomplish a bit more each day than I did the day previous. It makes it fun.less
lack of appreciation shown for any and all duties performed, even extra ones.
Account Manager (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 19 March 2018
There is not one day at EMCO where I have felt as if my input and work was not needed or appreciated. Now, can I speak for every single person within the company and say that EMCO is the very best place to be in the world? No, I cannot with confidence make such a bold statement.
BUT! I can tell you that the best education I have ever received has been throughout my journey with the company. I have had my ups and downs like everyone else, learned a lot from my mistakes, and have risen above expectations to not only financially better myself, but the team that I work closely with each and every day. Working for EMCO is about "living into your dream;" and that dream can change as you grow into the individual you see yourself to be. What I can truly say is that with a great profit centre manager, a dependable team with a strong work ethic, the sky is truly the limit.
Success is not limited to a pay check deposited every two weeks, it is knowing that your goals can be stretched and achieved day after day.
Manager in Training (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 2 March 2018
Emco is a great place to start your career or boost your existing one. You get to work with hand-picked co-workers since the company is only recruiting high-performing individuals by using a very thorough selection process. The company's culture is top notch, putting a lot of emphasis on people development, empowering its employees and offering substantial freedom to achieve your business goals. The company culture is based on very strong core values that are practiced by almost everyone starting with the President and down to the last employee. It is very entrepreneurial and frugal at its core. Profit sharing is key in Emco's bussiness model and it can boost your income substantially. Very good benefits package.
Focused on people development, strong leadership, great compensation package
Base salary is pretty average therefore profit sharing is needed
