Mundane but not unfair entry level job
Delegate Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 July 2017
The culture at the organization is a positive one, with supportive, friendly and helpful colleagues and management.

The job in itself is quite mundane and gets old very quickly. Especially when it's quite evident that there is little to no room to grow or advance.

The salary is not unfair, nor is the commission structure, but the sales team generally seem very undervalued. Turnover is rampant, creating a general feeling of insecurity every day which can be extremely uncomfortable for employees.

Not bad for someone with few options but not a job, who has bills to pay, but don't expect to wake up and be excited to start your day. There is a lot of expectation, with very little resources at your disposal and its extremely disheartening to feel as though you don't have the tools to properly do your job.

Terrible place to work. Stay away!
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto15 June 2017
The sales department is poorly run. The commission is very low and quotas are very high. Very unorganized and high turnover.

You are basically a telemarketer. The manager expects you to make 150 calls each day, while other people are calling the same people. You will be hung up on a lot. Not a fun place to be for 9 hours per day.
Pros
Office is in Yorkdale
Cons
Low pay, poor management, poor corporate culture
