    I have been working at Canada Drives full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have worked at Canada Drives for a little more than a year and I can honestly say that I love it here. I feel happy going to work everyday thanks to my awesome co-workers and the friendly work environment plus the fact that we have a fully stacked kitchen that provides free breakfast and lunch everyday. The office is very energetic and positive and even though people work very hard and sometimes long hours while here they still seem to have fun. One of the best parts of this company is the possibility to create your own career if you're willing to put in the hard work and a few extra hours at times. Out of my own experience I only have positive things to say about management, from the CEO's to the team managers, they all work very hard but they still always have a very respectful and positive attitude at work. I would definitely recommend applying for a job at Canada Drives!

    Cons

    Where I'm sitting in the office it gets a little chilly at times because of the air conditioner.

    I have been working at Canada Drives full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've been working here for a year and a little bit, and I can say that my favourite part of all is people. Amazing teams, everybody is so hardworking and always ready to help. I am grateful for a chance to work here, and a chance to work with this people. This environment helped me to take on more responsibilities, and improve at what I do every day. I've definitely learned a lot in this company, and I don't stop learning every day.

    Cons

    Lots of misscommunication between teams and management. Lots of pressure.

    I have been working at Canada Drives full-time

    Pros

    Managers and Team Leads are understanding to your needs as a human being; needed personal days and emergency situations are taken with genuine concern and understanding. Lots of room for advancement. Promotions are given to those who are driven and willing to work hard for what they want to achieve. The harder you work, the more you are recognized. Close-knit crew of co-workers who quickly turn into valued companions. My boss/CEO, Mike Galpin, purchased the first 10 published copies of my poetry work to support me in my own endeavors. This is a prime example of supporting your employees and ensuring they know they are valued as an individual and not just as an employee. Open positions are offered to those who want a better understanding of the company before hiring outside sources. If you are a hard worker and show your ambition to succeed, you are likely going to be promoted. Mistakes are not taken as an end-all deal. You are guided to do it correctly the next time instead of demeaned for doing it wrong the first time.

    Cons

    Dealer Services: Long hours for those who are needed in ensuring quality within the departments, clients and the sensitive files we work with. Constantly changing atmosphere and protocols within online platforms. Hard to keep up. In Customer Service: 6:00AM starts are sometimes mandatory. Overnight shifts are also necessary for certain teams. Sales: High turn-over rate & demanding hours to hit sales targets (for your own and the companies benefit).
