Pretty Good Place To Work

The hours were good and the pay was good too. I worked there as a university student and lived at home so I didn't have many expenses to cover. If I was living in Toronto I probably would be a little more stressed about the pay. Overall a good place to work. Great management and co-workers.

Not much to say.

I appreciated my time there. I do not want to write more than I have to. The ratings speak for themselves. Thank you Heritage for the happy memories.

Friendly and family environment that works together

When you come in to work, I would immediately tackle my tasks. Greeting and being greeted in the morning and sharing stories of what happened the previous night or over the weekend. I've learned a great deal about the RESP and how the system works. Advanced my technical skills and accepted the challenges with new tasks that would advance my knowledge and skills. Management were easy to talk to, approachable and were able to take your ideas into consideration. The hardest part of the job was trying to complete assignments, when you are already working on another. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people.

Pros

free lunches, activities and recognition when it came to birthdays and work anniversaries

Cons

salary wasn't the greatest and the increases never fit your job review and profile.

productive job working from home mostly

The company was a respected one providing necessary services i.e. RESPs for families. All sales people are self-employed so commission-based. We all therefore worked from home, had weekly/once-per-month meeting. I learned my joy of helping. We helped each other as necessary. There was no really hard part of the job...the joy of visiting families to set them up made the job worth it. I was an RESP sales person.

Pros

Visiting and helping families

Cons

may be very far from home and usually had to go evenings as parents work

Good company to work with

Its a good company to work with. There is no permanent salary as its a sales job. I enjoy each day at work. Management is good. Don't meet my coworkers on a daily basis as i don't meet them. Hardest day at work is when i don't close a sale

Friendly Work Environment

Co-workers are amazing. Management could be better at times I learned to pay careful attention Would work there again Hardest thing was dealing with the repetition

Good financial company

Financial institution that is based on RESP's. All departments have different tasks just as in any office. A fun business environment. If you are in customer service department you will deal with complex inquires and rules that constantly change and you must learn. Training is an intense ONE week or less as opposed to other financial institutes are a month or longer.

Pros

Good financial institution with a lot of team building events, free lunches, seminars

Cons

Hard to become full time employee, forever giving contracts or extensions. No time line to become f/t

Great co-workers and management team.

Working for the TCDSB was a splendid working experience. As my first job, I learnt a lot and gained experience in customer service. Dealing with new comers in Canada was a pleasure. I created a pamphlet for the Board and I really enjoyed it.

Pros

Great management and learning experience

Cons

Nothing to complain about
