Great workplace
Outside Sales B2B (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB10 February 2019
As an outside sales, you are expected to prospect new clients and bring new businesses. You will get some leads from the email generation but you should be able cold call and bring results.
It's a great place to work with friendly, motivated and creative staff.
The challenge for new sales reps is to understand about signs but Fastsigns offers support to learn on the go with a e-learning portal, magazines, weekly emails etc.
If you know something about designing, it will make your job easier.
The shop works in regular hours from Monday to Friday but if you work under commissions, I recommend you to be available anytime and day to increase your salary.
Pros
Friendly workplace

GRAPHIC DESIGNER/TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) –  Barrie, ON14 December 2017
Every day is different, you never know what you may be doing the next day. I enjoyed this aspect the most. I learned a lot about the sign industry and did a lot of design work.

It's a small family run business, this is a plus and a negative. There can be drama but it's also a close knit group.

Can be very fast paced and stressful at times.

Fun working environment, but long hours
Graphic Designer (Former Employee) –  North York, ON16 May 2017
Typical day at work was running several machines simultaneously, while doing design work. Learned to use some printing specific software, and how to use various other machines. Best part was staff was friendly.
Hardest part of job was no one is there to ask specific job questions, so had to figure out a few things by myself.
Pros
Staff is friendly
Cons
No other graphic designers for job specific questions

a place to work
Outside Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Kelowna, BC8 November 2016
it is a place to go to work and earn a pay but is no place for a future. This is a typical dead end job with no chance to advance.

Organized and productive with great people
Supervisor, Graphics/Dig.Print/Finishing Depts. (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON18 March 2014
I was taught how to complete the morning scheduling of incoming and current jobs in the company. Was also taught how to revise the existing schedule throughout the day to include "rush" jobs that came in. Although the typical day was at times challenging, it was rewarding to be able to achieve the daily tasks at hand. Co-workers and other employees always had the focus of a team environment. The hardest part of the day was ensuring new, current and "rush" jobs that came in on the fly made the schedule and was activated for design, print, finishing and delivery. The enjoyable part of the day was knowing that all jobs were on schedule and were going to make the deadline.
