Do not manage projects or company properly. hire technicians willy silly (don't care if they over qualified or have any experience at all) get you to work in the warehouse moving old computers around and boxing due to lack of knowledge in project management. barely minimal salary. job security next to nothing. nepotism is huge in the Victoria office. tattle talliers wins the ball. at the. at the "progress review" (dont get that if you are a field Tech) mark down just to cut the up scale salary even if works butt off.

not a good place to work. job security next to nothing. hired as a diploy tec and project ran by another company who doesn't have a clue what is going on at microserve; thus loose all the connections plus no work on the job might as well sweep the floor and clean the warehouse. super high turn over due to poor management.

The teamwork and culture is great. People are friendly and helpful. There’s always lots to do which keeps the work day interesting. The business has been on a consistent growth track which is exciting to be a part of.
The work is fine for about a year or two but don't stay. 2% raise every year is laughable and the work is tough sometimes. The company is good but again don't stay too long they only look at their bottom line and don't train their techs and leave them out to dry.
A shady company with questionable business practices and abusive management.
Employees are overworked, underpaid, and viewed as disposable - which is why you'll constantly see jobs on Indeed; people only work with Microserve until they find something else.
Save yourself some time and stress - look elsewhere for fair compensation and honest employers.
it's a job until you find something else, high staff turnover so always looking for desperate newcomers
Deployment Technician (Former Employee) - Burnaby, BC - 16 August 2018
Good for survive in Canada as first job
Job of getting in touch with people and clients
good experience in gaining IT experience
all rounder work (disposal, asset recovery, deployment, delivery and pickup, lifting boxes)
Good work environment, full people to work with, turnover is a little high and you might get reassigned at a moments notice between projects or to warehouse work but overall I would recommend Microserve.

lack of promising. tells you that you won't get laid off when you're a full-time. poor judgment in management for those who at the warehouse. on site is a great experience, but can be stressful. gotten along majority of coworkers and clients. gotten lot of positive feedbacks and written to my managers, and yet not much appreciated in there from my managers. pay is much lower than average pay for as technician. and benefit is somewhat fair
Long story short, at first Microserve seemed shady. .
I worked for them for two years and I would love to go back. The job I was doing was very elementary for what my skills and experience are. However, I had a ton of fun working there for the time I did.
The Victoria Branch is by far the most fun and that is an very important part of what I seek in an employer and for what it seems like they thrive to find in their employees as well.
There wasn't really a hardest part of my job other than having to drive everywhere.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the freedom. How much they listened to me and my ideas.
I would love to go back to Microserve one day.
Don't let the small salary scare you away. if money is all you want out of life they YOU suck not the employer. They have more perks than they advertise.
The pay was great for the amount of work that I actually did.
