Shop (Former Employee) –  Alberta23 May 2017
Working for this company for over 5 years now in Alberta. They have very good ground level employees that give their heart and souls to success but receive little to no support or recognition from management.. You will not advance or grow in this company much if at all. You must be part of the ol' boys club to get any due credit or advancement.. This is not the good company it used to be. You won't get proper tooling to do your job, you are always under the gun and often threatened to be fired if you complain too much or don't just do as youre told (even if it makes no sense).
Pros
Some benfiits, pay is OK
Cons
Hours vary too much, you are just a number

A typical day at work, would going to the defferent hotels to pick up passengers taking to the airport
I learn people are happy when things are done the right way on time how it shoud.
Management should have had more meeting with their front line workers more.
Mostly old guys but it was fun working with them,.
The hardest part of the job was the heavy repetitive lifting

Good environment to work in, and everyone around is friendly and nice
Mobile ticket agent (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON16 December 2013
I've learned to be more patient and helpful, i also improved my organization skills and communication skills, my co-workers are very friendly, some are hard to deal with but in general, everyone's very nice, the hardest part of the job was being in difficult situations for example if the bus was very late, customers would get angry and they asked for a refund or sometimes i solved the problem by contacting the office or the bus to see where it is and the most enjoyable part of the job was dealing with customers, helping them and making sure they get to where they want by helping them out with the map and directions.
Pros
got dropped to the airport by the company's bus, instead of parking at the airport and paying money for parking
