Business Development Executive (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 November 2014
A typical day at work would consist of checking and sending emails, cold and warm calls to clients, meeting both inside and out of the office, some paper work, reading up on the markets for 15 or 20 minutes and then finally some reflection on the events of the day, client meetings/calls and how to improve sales process.
The most important thing I learned here is that any organization must have internal congruency in order to function effectively.
The management took a micro style and was very secretive about internal matters. They would not give much warning before making substantial changes. Communication was ineffective with management and goals that were set by them were counter productive to revenue generation.
My Co-workers were all great and some became good friends of mine which was also the hardest part of the job when it was time to leave.
The most enjoyable part of the job was making connections.
Fast paced working environment with Interchangeable schedules

Senior Customer Support Representative (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 17 July 2014
My job consisted of preventing fraudulent transactions being sent through Western Union. Contacting customers to ensure their transactions are valid, and getting the details of their transaction to assist in any possible fraudulent activity. I learned to determine when a customer is possibly being scammed and how to coach the customer so they are more tactful in their transactions for the future. Within our small specialized department of Western Union, our management staff placed a lot of trust in their employees and knew that we required little supervision to ensure we provided the best possible service to our customers. Our specialized department had an excellent group of dedicated employees that provided a noticeable improvement in customer service, and prevented the most amount of fraudulent transactions within Western Union. The hardest part of the job was reaching our to customer who were the victims of scams and fraudulent transactions. These people were often senior citizens who were unaware that they were scammed, often by contacts overseas. Informing the customers about potential or unrecoverable losses was difficult, but rewarding when they validated our high customer service. The most rewarding part of the job was working with and for a great team of employees that strived for a common goal in providing the best customer experience within Western Union.
Worked for great managment and coworkers
Layed off due to Western Union wanting to pay for cheaper staff
Challenging yet rewarding workplace which I had to leave due to change of address
