Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 30 April 2018
in general everyone is very friendly in the office. Most people are very helpful and are willing to help you out. I have not joined the company for long but so far everything seems good, learning a lot of about the auto industry and lots of soft skills that is very useful for me.
Operation Coordinator (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 16 March 2018
Joined as a customer service rep (started from the bottom), it didn't take long for the management to notice my performance. And after half a year of working here I was promoted to supervisor with a raise.
There have been challenges plus workload isn't the lightest but it's all been pretty rewarding so far. Another great thing about this company is its work culture, it's full of energy and ideas and at the same time money is not the only thing that matters but value is.
This is definitely a great place to start off as the company is still growing with a healthy paste.
Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 15 February 2018
Worked for Max for around 2 years. Was overwhelming at first but was very rewarding at the end.
They underwent a massive expansion early 2017 and everything started to go uphill from there. I have learned from various departments and the majority of the co-workers and some managers are very supportive.
There was a lack of diversity at the beginning but that also changed after the expansion. The work culture is probably one of the best things here. Working here wasn't that stressful for me and the compensation is fair in my opinion.
Disorganized and high stress environment with low pay
Department of Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 20 September 2016
A typical day: - check and reply to customer's emails - answer phone to place orders, answer technical questions about products, resolve issues regarding shipping or product defects - organize and input invoices and paperwork
What I learned: - operations of a small business - valuable experience dealing with a variety of international and local customers - valuable office administrative experience - technical aspect of braking system in a vehicle
Management: - unprofessional, too much gossiping, disorganized - unclear of my responsibilities and daily tasks - excessive work load - does not properly compensate employees for overtime or holiday pay - improper or non-existent training for new employees
Co-workers: - some are friendly - high turnover rate
Hardest part of the job: - excessive work load and unclear daily responsibilities creates a disorganized work team which can lead to high levels of stress - about half of minimum wage was paid during an extended training period - false advertising of job title
Most enjoyable part of the job: - they might buy you a cake for your birthday - learning about vehicles and the complexities of the braking system - improving my interpersonal and communication skills
Occasional free lunches or bubble tea
Salary deductions for time missed but nothing added for staying overtime, disorganized and unprofessional, unfulfilled promises of bonuses and wage increase, excessive office gossip
