Less than a year after I joined the department, I was promoted to become an Underwriting Team Manager. Canada Drives jump-started my career and has given me space and opportunity to grow and thrive!”

    I have been working at Canada Drives full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Breakfast and lunch provided in office kitchen, young, dynamic and friendly employees. Employers who appreciate employees in a number of fun and creative ways. Ex. Bonuses, team events, dinners etc. . A great place to gain experience and to build a career in a number of different fields.

    Cons

    I live in Surrey so the commute is not great, but the company makes up for it with paying for transit pass and providing basic breakfast and lunch options.
