    I have been working at Canada Drives full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - if you work very hard, you will make a lot of money. I have been one of top 5 people in my department for the past 2 years and have made 120k+ in the last year and half.
    - FREE FOOD - Unlimited lunch/Breakfast
    - Great environment for young entrepreneurs - if you're 19-25 looking to make a name for yourself in sales then this is a great spot to start.
    - Amazing CEO - Something I love truly about this company is how much the CEO loves his company. He is always doing special events, prizes and trips for the top workers and always having company wide competitions for holidays. Like on St Patricks Day I won best costume and got beat head phones

    Cons

    - Its hard to move up, because they're a smaller company still, so spots are extremely limited when it comes to moving up in the company

    Advice to Management

    - They have a hard time sticking to rules, they usually change rules to their advantage whenever necessary. Otherwise they have a good management team.

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

    Pros

    - If you work hard Canada Drives will reward you with advancement, better pay, and their loyalty - Seriously, I have never worked at a company that was so willing to invest in my success.
    - I love the stocked kitchen - free breakfast and lunch everyday of the week saves me loads of money
    - Fun team events where we go out for dinner, karaoke etc
    - Incredibly fast growing company in downtown Vancouver
    - Its got that millennial vibe which is pretty nice - makes the company feel alot younger and hipper

    Cons

    - Incredibly fast growing can mean growing pains - We've run out of office space before and had to scramble to get desks for staff
    - Every department plays their own music really loudly - this can be cool cause the office is bumping - but sometimes it can also be very loud

    Advice to Management

    None really. Management has always worked hard to make this an inclusive and enjoyable place for me to work.

    Pros

    The company is full of talented and motivated individuals that want to see you succeed!
    Everyone is so welcoming and eager to help you reach your full potential no matter what your education or experience may be.
    When you prove you can do a good job management puts a lot of trust in you, which is a nice change!
     Ideas are always welcomed and good ones are given recognition.
     If you work very hard and excel at what you do you are compensated very well!
    My favorite thing about working at Canada Drives though, is the people! The friendships I have made here are amazing! Everyone is open and inviting so it is easy to have fun with your coworkers!

    Cons

    The hours can be long sometimes, but it 100% worth the time!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to show your teams that you care and stay approachable! Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Canada Drives full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    * Kitchen serving breakfast, lunch, snack, coffee and tea
    * Room for advancement if you put in the work and you are good at what you do (as it should be)
    * Benefits after 3 months and transit or parking pass
    * Lots of team building activities and group events outside of the office
    * CEO's that genuinely care about their employees and are always encouraging and rewarding those that go the extra mile. They are very hands on.

    Cons

    Long hours, but if you consider this a career and not a just a job and see the bigger picture of where you are going and the pay off, it's well worth it. This job is not for clock punchers.

    I have been working at Canada Drives full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Canada Drives has a warm and open feeling when you walk in the door. It's high energy and people are constantly smiling and cheering each other on. We work in our own office and listen to music while we work and it creates a really relaxed and focused space. We all get along really well, and they'res always something to do so its never boring.

    Cons

    Because of the type of work sales agents do it can become loud at times, but when it does we just close the door or listen to our own music.

    Advice to Management

    We have some of the best Managers working at Canada Drives. They make you feel valued and appreciated.

    Pros

    - Very exciting and energetic work place
    - People are tenacious, enthusiastic, and easy to get along with
    - Promotions, raises and bonuses are given out frequently and I know some sales agent who are extremely driven and end up making bank
    - Rewarding to work for a company that cares about your own personal growths and afford you the patience to develop the skills you need to succeed
    - Good place to start if this is your first time in sales and are worried about the stresses of a typical sales job
    - Added bonuses: the fully stocked kitchen, free transit, monthly team outings, and fun company wide contest

    Cons

    The music they play can get insufferable, I recommend they keep it to one side of the office only!
