Awful place to work!
Service Dispatcher/Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Coquitlam, BC30 May 2018
The people I worked with at Leavitt are fantastic, however the culture that this business exudes is TOXIC. Management wants every pound of flesh they can get. They blame other people for their mistakes, which in turn created a massive employment turn over. In my first 6 months with the company I went from the most Junior Employee to the 3rd most senior. In the 4 years following I managed to make it to the 2nd most senior however I had worked with and trained about 15 other people, only 2 of which were still there (95% quit in the first 6 months).
Pros
Fair Wage
Cons
Unbelievable expectation, ultra long hours, on call after hours constanltly.

Money wise a good company, but too many to much harassment
Branch Administrator (Former Employee) –  Kitimat, BC5 November 2016
Good paying job, Would been great job for someone that can put up with the boss there, poor young management in Leavitt team, don't work as a team, have separate departments that go through power struggles. Harassment and screaming profanity does not sit well with me.
False sense of security,
Pros
Job was close to home
Cons
Loud profanity from boss who's desk was across mine and I answered incoming calls, not a good working environment. A lot of screaming and yelling.

Growing fast
Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Coquitlam, BC10 December 2014
Lots of opportunity to move around within the company. Growing very fast in the Pacific down south and east into Canada. If you want to train up in Vancouver BC and move elsewhere in the Pacific Northwest, this is the place to do it.

Good people. Good company. Smart management.
