Time bound and target based

Its a stressful job as your life is in hands of drivers who hardly know to drive. Money paid is not even close to the risk you take in road tests you take. There are certain number of road tests you have to complete in a day and each test is time bound. If you don't do certain number of road tests , you are called by supervisor. There is Union, so the senior and old employees try to play dirty politics on new employees.

Pros

Some old employees giving good advice on work matters, free lunch

Cons

Not paid as per risk taken, time bound, target based, not chance of advancement

Makes Fawlty Towers look like a well-oiled machine.

This company is so poorly run it is scandalous. It has been nothing but an aggravating waste of time from the very unfortunate second I heard about them. It is bewildering to me how anyone actually gets licensed in this province with the scheer ineptitude of the people who run this company, and the disorganization from the floor to the ceiling. Its farcical!

Not worth the risk

Great staff and hours but not worth risking your life every 15 mins getting in cars with people not knowing how to drive the majority of the time. Very stressful and scary most of your day.

Pros

Good hours

Cons

Very stressful and not worth risking your life and being killed in an accident.

Driver Examiner: Stressful and unappreciated.

The pay is very good but there are hardly any benefits if pt. There are hardly any advancement opportunities if you are a driver examiner. The work itself is easy but it is very stressful. You almost have to work overtime everyday and it is extremely frustrating. Its always management against employees and it is a very harsh work environment.

Pros

Good pay, monthly potluck

Cons

overtime, stressful, management

Terrible company to work for

Employees are a liability to this company. Treated awful. Paycheck was only reward. No room for advancement, management terrible, very very negative environment. No job security, sent home all the time if quiet, and docked pay. Laid off, called back, laid off... Dangerous, stressful job with no support from supervisors. Treated as children, the only thing that matters to this company is making money at any expense. There is a terrible attrition rate which is surprising becausing it does pay decent. But the environment in most of the offices is terrible. I highly recommend choosing another career choice. This is a privatized government contract that does expire this September 2013.

Pros

pay

Cons

stressful working conditions, no management support, negative environment
