    I worked at Canada Drives

    Pros

    Free Food, but just typical sandwiches

    Cons

    They teach you the bases of how to scam desperate Canadians who already has little to offer. If you work here, be prepared to throw your human morals away. (Beware to other reviews here, or other websites on this company. They pay for good reviews and also ask employees to do it for them. Either way if you wan't to experience it for yourself go right ahead.)

    Advice to Management

    Karma's swings right around all the innocent people you guys stole from, and harass with calls and poor business ethics, will come bite you back.

    Cons

    -Turn over rate is pretty high, either due to school, other obligations, not a good fit, etc -Not a job for those looking to make easy money

    I worked at Canada Drives full-time

    Pros

    - Free food - Transit compensation - Full medical and dental benefits after three months

    Cons

    - Poor management - Lack of proper training - Forced to speak from a script which gets pretty redundant real quick - Discourages innovative thinking

    Advice to Management

    You need to hire managers with actual experience and not a bunch of late 20s people who are cocky and think they're on top of the world. You need to hire managers who can actually take feedback for the better of the business and not take it as some kind of threat or insubordination to their position. Your sales department is also a joke. Brainwashing a bunch of teenagers into scamming poor people with a fixed 46.96%...

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Canada Drives

      Pros

      Great food and awesome co-workers.

      Cons

      Slipshode unfocused rushed training. Manager likes to call people he doesn't like idiots. The work often involved people screaming crying rightfully so over great financial issues caused me to bring a lot of stress to my relationships.

      Advice to Management

      Invest more time creating a proper training program they waste a lot of money training new people.

      Pros

      So many to mention. First and foremost the people. I'm a strong believer that if you like the people you work with you'll love what you do. Being surrounded with such positive people from the top (Michael Galpin) all the way down everyone is truly amazing. The energy from the time you walk through doors until you get to your desk is happy, energetic and positive. The compensation for your hard work is truly rewarding....

      Cons

      I can't think of one.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you're doing. I've always felt cared about not only as an employee but a person. The growth is motivation to be great and work towards advancement in the company and be here for life. Thanks Mike & Cody.
