Quantity > Quality.. Poor hiring practices AWFUL Sales Managers
SDR (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 27 December 2017
Overall, a great place to work if you are fresh out of college and are willing to work here if the only other option for you is retail sales.
First and foremost, Management (at the time I was working there) was ABYSMAL. They use numerous staffing agencies which prefer quantity over quality, and this preference is shared by Veem. This also extends to specific aspects of the (entry-level) sales environment I found myself. There is NO training, just volume cold calling, and a manager with almost no experience in sales at all whatsoever.
If a Sales Manager can't help his subordinates, and simply makes loud noises, why is he even working there making commission?
If they wish to succeed in this space, they will need to pay closer attention to the kinds of people they place in management roles (for a team of 25+ employees). If they intend to have a book of business and dedicated clientele in 5-10 years, "speed-0hiring" through agencies who don't have their best interests at heart, is the worst way to go about building a business.., and not promoting people when they have more experience and talent than their manager. Some obvious things that even a startup would be wise to.
There are others in this 'Fin-Tech' space that will overtake them. I would look elsewhere if you want to be valued as a team member, and not disrespected by an untrained, undeserving manager who is incapable of training, coaching, and virtually all aspects of what makes a manager build up his team.
