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

    Pros

    I have worked at Canada Drives for just over 18 months now. This company is best company I have ever worked for. The culture is vibrant, diverse, and welcoming . As for opportunities, they are endless at Canada Drives. I started working here in an entry level sales position, and worked my way up to the top sales team of the company in less than two years.

    There is no secret code of success at Canada Drives. All you have to do is join, work harder than anyone else in the room, and be rewarded for it. You can easily make over 100k a year offering products that help your clients.

    If sales is not your cup of tea, there are other great positions available as well. From photography and customer service, to web design and marketing. The opportunities are endless & the compensation is unbeatable. This is the best company you will ever work for.

    Cons

    No major cons. The A/C can be cranked up a little colder in the summer but that's about it!

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

    Pros

    1) FUN - Our team at Canada Drives is a lively bunch. Work hard play hard.

    2) OPPORTUNITY - In 2016 we had the fastest growing company in Canada. Their is ample opportunity to progress your career.

    3) FOOD - People say nothing in life is free.... Well at Canada Drives we have a stocked & staffed kitchen daily from 7AM - 7PM. It truly is Free!! No fine print.

    4) MONEY - Lots of it! For example an employee that began with our company exactly 9 months ago earned $12,200 last month . I can confidently say if you commit yourself to this job you WILL be rewarded.

    Cons

    5) PARKING - Rates in the Bentall Centre parkade parallel the amount one would pay for accommodation downtown. Although Canada Drives has transit reimbursement perks... be prepared!

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for your devotion to the company - Keep growing!

    Pros

    While working here you will learn a lot, sales skills, telecommunication skills, tech skills as well as getting a crash course on credit and how loans work.

    There is a ton of opportunity in this company, I have been working here for 7 months and I have worked very hard. I have worked almost every day of every month that I have been here and have put in at least 8-11 hours a day. I have made more money here than I have at any other job though!

    Sometimes the work life balance has negatively impacted my life, but regardless, I am very grateful for the way management has treated me. You really get what you put in, a lot of people don't perform and quit or get canned and then they write a bad review on this website but you shouldn't let those reviews change your perspective on Canada Drives. Working here has actually changed my life and taught me how to put in work, if you work here, expect to leave this place as a better salesperson with a stronger work ethic.

    The location of this office is extremely convenient, it is right next to Burrard Station. There is free food, coffee, tea, cereal as well as subsidized transit which is awesome.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of, is long hours and sometimes difficult customers, if you don't think you can work hard and crush deals then there's no point in you working in the Sales department.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing
