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

    Pros

    - Breakfast is varied alot and free lunch as well.
    - An environment that will accept you as you are and help you only if you show that you want make money.
    -They don't sweat the little stuff that doesn't affect your work. If you can sit down and put in time the rewards are easy to see.
    - The management will always give in as much effort to help you as you put in. They trust you and will go to the bat for you.
    -The money is ridiculously easy to get and the benefits are instant even before you first 3 months.
    -The first month or 2 is harder to get in to the flow especially if you don't come in with extra time
    -If you come in early or on a Saturday once in a while you will get the better leads and you will get help you just need to ask for it.If you don't ask or show you have interest you will get nothing.
    - Its not a struneus job you sit in a seat and talk to people that's it.
    -The health benefits are insanely good
    - You get to choose when you want to eat. As long as you hit call time you can take your time if you want but most people will choose to make money because as long as you stay on the dialer you will help out people and you will be able to make good money.
    -You get to help people get loans to better their lives because most of the customers are people that need a loan and no one will trust them enough to give a loan. We help out people that need loans and help out those that don't even understand how badly they need the loan to help their credit.
    -We help those have only been relying on the Money mart loans that have 600% interest and are stuck in a cycle of debt. The loans we give them are a way to get out of that cycle and have much better interest rates.
    - Extremely fast growth and the opportunity to move up is everywhere and can easily be attained even within the first 3 months.
    - You will not get fired unless you stop caring and you start being rude. If people like you and you produce results or even if you show that you have any effort being put in they will not let you go and the management will be there for you so you can learn.
    -Free monthly buss passes and Free monthly team bonding where its at times normal to eat more at places that you would never normally eat at expensive places.

    Cons

    - Long hours but that's apart of the job. They tell you in the interview this ain't a job you get into if you want to have all the time in the world.
    - Sometimes you will be extremely busy to the point you might miss lunch but that is your choice, no one will force you that will be something you choose without realizing it because you want to make good money.
    - Most people understand that when you come in you choose which department you want to go to in Canada Drives, The personal loans department where you will not have any real work life/ balance but make a lot of money or the other loan department that you have a Work /life balance and the money is not as much.
    - You will develop this urge where you feel like if you are not in the office than someone else is going to steal your file or that you could be doing something more productive by being in the office on the dialer. It will consume you at times if you don't learn to separate that urge and fear

    Advice to Management

    Lets go to team bonding places that are not just to eat.

    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.

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, food. Co-workers are nice.

    Cons

    Most people you talk to will be upset you called. Requires you to sell a product that is hard to believe in. Personal loans at very high IR is often a difficult thing to sell to people with bad credit and little income. It is what it is, a cutthroat sales job, very very competitive. Very little downtime to get yourself together.

    Advice to Management

    Management is good. Like I said, it is what it is. Make sure you understand what you'll be doing. Save the company time and money if you cant see yourself keeping someone on the phone after numerous declines to continue further with the call.

    I worked at Canada Drives full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get free food, free booze on Fridays, health, dental and vision coverage plus they cover your bus pass. And, you'll most likely end up with a couple good friends.

    Cons

    Working at Canada Drives will mean you are constantly spoken down to, you work crazy hours without genuine reward, you are expected to get down and dirty to get a sale, and you'll eventually find yourself questioning what the heck your doing there.

    Advice to Management

    Rather than constantly hire new people and throw them into the rats race, focus on training the current employees that haven't quit or been fired. And, listen to them. They are the ones working the system day in and day out. Any changes shouldn't just be thrown on the playing field. Start a discussion and ask "Hey, do you guys think this will work better?"
