This job is terrible. You only get two (not paid) 15 min breaks no lunch. Even when you decide to not take break during work they would still take .5 hr every day from your pay. I find that unprofessional. Scheduling were terrible you only get text message every Sunday of your schedule and no time slips which is odd. Some locations they assigned you are great but when you get location that’s not busy and sales are poor they send you home. If you keep up with poor sales they cut your hrs. You only get like 4 days of training. You work alone and is expected of you to walk around during the whole shift so get good soles for your feet. Also they’re always hiring every week which I view as bad sign; barely anyone stays long. The only thing is good is the manager and pay. That’s it. Good luck for everyone that works there!
Only 2 15 min break and unpaid, locations, the schedule.

Minimal training with high expectations of results in the first week of working. They promise all kinds of bonuses but it’s nearly impossible to get them. Management is terrible and calls you at all times even on days off expecting you to work even if you’re not scheduled. I was told to target Native people and immigrants, and heard a lot of racist language from the manager.

Great experience learning new sales tactics but the management was terrible. They talked about switching programs but put you out of work until they figure things out but they never really get back to you. I wouldn’t recommend this company to anyone
New learning experience

They pay $16 plus commission which is really good but the work that you have to do is not something that everyone would enjoy. You just have to walk around the store and approach people and get them to sign up for a credit card, that's it.
good pay, good manager, scope for advancement
no teamwork, little to no training and all you do is talk to strangers
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 26 May 2017
Pays well if you can deliver your sales Per hours but if you can't provide the sales and number risking being fired, But you can use sale and reach your targets you will be can earn well and Two days off
Must reach your sales per hours or risk being fired

the hardest part of the job is telling people you're signing them up for a master card, not everyone is willing to make that commitment. most days at work will be a breeze. try to get postings closer to your house if you don't drive
Great learning but a lot of people who whine too much
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 4 May 2017
Worked in Vancouver for PCF for just under a year. Generally a good company but they get really pushed hard by the banks to get more customers. One thing to point out is some sales reps seem to whine a lot about it being too hard. For me, I just talked to people honestly cause its a good card to get. The bonus was all the walking around superstore got me to lose some weight (lol!).
