    I worked at Canada Drives full-time for more than a year

    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.

    Pros

    The people are super friendly and always willing to help get you to where you want to be. As for management upper management is super supportive and catches flaws early to help you develop faster. Team leaders are day to day support with positive feed back and constructive criticism to help you move to where you want to be. Product interesting and something never taught in school. Amazing energy throughout sales office....

    Cons

    There's a lot of whining going on in these reviews. It's a sales job and it is very challenging and if you're weak you shouldn't even bother applying cause they want strong confident individuals who know hard work and they WILL compensate you heavily for it. There was also whining about training? This training course is probably the most in depth training I've ever had....

      I worked at Canada Drives full-time

      Pros

      Free food, good central location, growing company

      Cons

      My coworker always said the pony tailed ceo (who is one of the two ceo's) creeps her out. Given the rumours we've all heard, I wouldn't exactly want my sister working here if you know what I mean. Surprised there's not more reviews that mention how sexist the office is, and this is coming from a straight male observer. Long hours and the job isn't exactly as it's sold to you during interview..you've been warned! Other...

      Advice to Management

      Be more honest during interview and realize that free food isn't the only incentive you can offer employees. People need a good reason to be loyal to the company. So many people working there are looking for new jobs. Recognize that and do something about it. Pony tail man needs a reality check and needs to learn how to respect his workers.

      I worked at Canada Drives full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      If you look at all these perfect positive reviews they are from within the last 60 days. I find that a little suspicious considering in that time frame the company has been bribing people to like them on Instagram, forcing them to make Linkedin accounts and add them on Linkedin and now probably doing the same with Glassdoor to make the company look good to the public. With that being said I have only worked in sales...

      Cons

      Long hours - 10hrs/day with no overtime Selling scammy products to people who don't need them Crappy bonus structure that LOOKS great on paper but in practice isn't No health benefits - don't expect to get your teeth cleaned anytime soon Crappy phones - for a call center their phone quality is the worst I've ever had to deal with In my time at Canada Drives, 2-3 months, I saw probably 15-20 different employees...

      Advice to Management

      Treat your employees well, pay your employees well, learn how to hire and keep good talent. A happy employee is a more productive one and I think it would be cheaper to pay people, not over work them, and make them happy than to constantly hire people who quickly lose motivation and leave. Your sales team is a revolving door of uninspired people biding their time until they find a better gig. If you can't see that and...

      Hi there, Thanks for the review. Like a lot of companies starting up we need the support of our employees to help bring our employer brand to life, hence encouraging employees to like us on Instagram or to tag the company in a corporate photo is often seen as best practice. By ...
