      Hard work will always pay off

      Pros

      The money is substantial, the benefits are amazing, and if you work hard you will always be rewarded. The company has alot of upward momentum and has become a dominant force that is growing in the financial sector. Not only do they Do car loans, they do personal loans, even Mortgages. I work in the personal loans department and when I tell you that this is a job that makes you more money the longer you last, it is the honest to god truth. Its tough in your first month or 2 but I will tell you now, you will get better exponentially as long as your willing to put the work in it. The team dinners are expensive and fun and this maybe an individual job but the team building is what makes the from being a job to being apart of a family. They will always give you a chance as long as your learning from your mistakes. Everyone is different and personalities that succeed vary hugely. This is a company that will last for a long time and if you are coming in the upward momentum is limitless and alot of the agents are making more money then the management does. The job is honestly not a hard job just a long one. All you have to do is sit down and work. There is gold under your seats you just have to sit down and dig for it. The benefits include covering for 80 percent of your medicine that you can buy.

      Cons

      Long hours, and management does not put up with bad attitudes. If you are not showing effort then you will not last. If you do not speak up about what you want and if you need help, no one will help you and no one will care. You need to make your own voice heard, if not nothing will happen.

      Pros

      Canada Drives is a great place for young adults to get experience and grow. When I started at Canada Drives I had limited experience in sales but was willing to put in the hours and effort. In a very short period of time my hard work was recognized and I was rewarded with a promotion. It is incredibly rewarding to work for a company that rewards and appreciates hard work. More than that, financially you are in complete control of your salary; as a hardworking salesperson, what more could you want!

      Cons

      We spend long hours in the office, there is coffee but no snacks or food, that would be a nice bonus.
