worst place to work
Risk Management Officer/Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 February 2019
this is a place where racism still exists if you're a hard working person you definitely don't belong here. managers speaking their own language on the work place helping and covering for people who came from their country.

Horrible management and job security
Customer Care Representative (Current Employee) –  Brantford, ON21 December 2018
All they care about it the money and not the staff. They’ll ask you what hours you are available but staff you in until any hour they please. And when you ask for accommodations because you have priorities, like children, they’ll simply laugh it off and say theres nothing they can do. I have never seen a company (at least the one in Brantford) care less about their employees than they do. I love the actual job its self but the management and the hours they make you work, even when you state before hire that you can’t work them, are ridiculous. Not to mention they have high favouritism and fire whenever someone is less than convenient to them
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Horrible mangement and job secirity

just a job
Collections Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 October 2018
Gatestone provided me with the opportunity to pay my bills but that was it. The work environment wasnt the best, there was little opportunity to advance in the company. there was no benefits, its you worked or didnt get paid, no sick days.

Not so much a great place to work
Risk Management Officer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 September 2018
Management needs to step up as the work environment was sort of unfriendly. I will prefer never to work here again.
Having a headset on all the time was not nice.

Great place to gain experience
Compliance Officer (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 August 2018
If you're starting off and need a place to gain office experience this is a great place to work. You will be given lots of work and depending on how resourceful you are will learn a lot of technical skills.

It is a call center so there are some downsides to the company like salary. However, the company culture is professional and far better than any small call center. Not a place to stay but good for 1-3 years to build up your resume.

Worst Company
Collections Agent (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 July 2018
worst company culture ever. they treat you like slaves. they do not care about their employees and they can fire you right away without reason. However, it is a good place to start making some little money if you need it. No place to grow.
Cons

stressful and repetitive but they make the best of it
Outsource Collector (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON22 May 2018
It's not a difficult job and can be quite boring but they do really try and make the most of it. There's high turnover but that isn't the fault of the company, it's more the nature of the job and the type of people who are hired. In my short time I met people who I still talk to over a year after leaving and managers were super understanding and helpful. genuinely a nice environment with a competitive edge... it's just really boring
Pros
really nice managers, excellent training, good pay
Cons
long hours, boring job, poor work/life balance

It was alright.
Debt Collector (Summer Student) (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON29 April 2018
Typical work day included just signing in and start getting on calls from the call list immediately. The work culture was fun because the people around me were fun, or else it would've been very boring because you are just constantly on a call.
Pros
you're sat down working, not physically intensive

horrible management
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 April 2018
this is not a good place to work your always worried about being written up because they will smile with you and write up you all in the same breathe. majority of the ppl working there are young so the individuals with children should be worried because the schedule that they make does not benefit you at all

A place you feared you would be fired everyday
Collections Officer (Former Employee) –  Kingston, ON14 March 2018
The management ruled with fear instead of encouragement. Everyday you would fear for your job. You would not even want to take vacation as your targets were not adjusted for the week off.
