Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON11 September 2019
This job is absolutely incredible! Since I was only a summer student, I only got the chance to be included in the work environment for three months. However, in those months, I felt extremely included and welcomed. The training was very short and a little overwhelming, but there are always experienced workers there to help when you need it. The actual work tasks were difficult, but it didn't take me long to learn!
Pros
Great pay
Cons
Long hours

Not the best career move
IT expert (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 August 2019
If your goal is get a reasonable treatment for showing up at work, appear positive and get decently paid for that, it's your place of employment.
Otherwise, it's a perfect opportunity to ruin your career.

Great work environment, fantastic leadership and an unparalleled employee moral.

A variety of jobs to choose from. Great hours offered. Pay is awesome, the benefits are even better. They offer good breaks. Some co-workers aren't the kindest. Lots of drama. Keep to yourself.

Demanding work load, long hours make Green Shield a place to learn and grow professionally. While working with Green shield you will have many opportunities to meet like mind individuals who also would like to work very hard to contribute to GSC ongoing success.

Expanded way too fast and not prepared for it.
Staff member (Current Employee) –  Ontario28 April 2017
Plus is that they pay slightly higher than industry standard. That being said the standard in this industry is so pathetically low. This still does not warrant 5 stars because the amount of work expected without overtime pay for the overtime hours, the wrinkles and stress and loss of personal time are not properly compensated to employees that give up their lives to get the job done/keep the promises we have made ... over promising without the staff to back it up.

Engagement survey is completed and then swept under the rug... how can you score a 2 or 3 out of 10 and not make a big deal out of that??
Pros
Some people care, pay is decent, benefits are paid
Cons
No work/life balance, no one cares, bonus not by performance, too much expansion not enough thought and planning, absolute nightmare

good pay poor management
Business Analyst and Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON7 April 2017
great pay and benefits, poor advancement opportunities and management is out of touch. Management protects each other and have no idea how to manage now that the company has grown. They pretend to be an IT company but no idea how to do it. Real good people usually have a short stay as new and better jobs come up, they want to retain you but do nothing to do that.
Pros
good pay
Cons
poor advancement and poor management

Stay Away
Armed Security Officer (Former Employee) –  8677 Anchor Dr, Windsor, ON N8N 5G1, Canada18 May 2016
This Employer will work their employees outside the law of the United States since they are based out of Canada.
They do pay over time but nothing over that.
As an armed security officer they try to pay 12 dollars an hour. The minimum for an armed security is 15.
The employer does no training.
It is a dead end job.

Great socially responsible company with great people and a good work environment
Account Manager/Client Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON14 December 2015
Green Shield is a forward thinking company that puts great focus and effort into developing and nurturing their employees growth. They believe their employees are their greatest asset and it made working for Green Shield a joy. I was able to take courses outside of work hours to personally develop skills that were not necessarily needed for my job (ie. Language courses). Green Shield always provided a good structure for learning and mentors were always nearby if I needed a resource to learn. Eventually as I became more experienced I became that resource for other employees. If I did not have to relocate I would still be happily employed with Green Shield Canada.
Pros
Great work atmosphere, professional, salary, fun co-workers, socially responsible
Cons
Growing company that was experiencing some growing pains with some of their processes

Stimulating work environment
Assistant Rate Analyst (Former Employee) –  North York, Ontario, Canada15 December 2012
Good professional work environment, comparatively small but helpful staff.Good team effort and stimuating work place. Eased in quickly to group insurance underwriting after fairly lengthy absence with very supportive co-workers and manager. Excited to be given chance to contribute, despite job only lasting for as long as full-time permanent employee was on matenity leave. Uncoverd potential for administrative and techical refinements. Enjoyed assisting Group Account Reps in acquiring new accounts and successful renewal and retention of in-force Groups, especially interesting statistical underwriting details. Close knit team group including 2 sisters.
Pros
small "family" office environment, but still part of larger organization
Cons
meeting tight deadlines and schedules; short contract nature of job
