Mon horaire est flexible, donc je peux travailler en même temps d'aller à l'école. Je fini plus tard que la normale. Je travaille au téléphone en contact avec les consommateurs adultes. J'ai appris comment vendre au téléphone, comment bien gérer mon temps et planifier. J'ai compris que les rencontres hebdomadaires sont importants pour la communication entre les agents et les supérieurs. Les chefs d'équipes sont dévoués à notre réussite, pour la plupart. L'aspect qui est plus difficile c'est de toujours faire la même chose, c'est dure sur la motivation. Ce qui le plus agréable, c'est les gens de l'organisation et la liberté.
Bonne paie, horaire flexible
Les tâches sont routinières et au téléphone
Poor management system. No job security. Managers are uneducated on what their roll is. Save yourself the headache and look somewhere else. They promise you a full time schedule but that never happens. Management expects you to jump and come to work with 30 min notice and if you can’t they will not give you hours.
Poor management, low pay

You could not ask for a better Employer, they treated you as "family". It was a great place to work.I wish they had not moved to Mexico, I'd still be there today.Again, best job I ever had, nothing else even comes close to comparison..
Work life ws awesome, management and people were all great to work with.
They moved to Mexico

Huge Corporation but felt like a small friendly business Everyone was crossed trained and could fill into anyone spot to keep the day to day operations going. The best perks were to be a "BAT" employee the disadvantage was to be working for a third party such as a hiring agencry
good people to work with
working for a hiring agency and not BAT directly
Once you start working for this company kiss your life goodbye. Long days and nights with no breaks in between or you will fall behind and never recover. DMs are ruthless and expect you to work like a robot. Night coverage as well as working on weekends. So much more to say about how unethical they are to employees and customers. Avoid at all costs the money isn’t worth it and you’ll be looking for a new job in less than a year.
CEO is the perfect example of someone who suffers from the Napoleon complex. He is nothing more than a corporate shill to ensure shareholders are pleased. Has had no people leadership training, No ability to be in touch with the evolving needs of people and culture. Fails to inspire. No forward future mind set. The company is the industry leader in profitability but nothing more. Managers/leaders are devoid of soft skills. Almost formally coached to demean the efforts of the field. Nothing you do is ever good enough - if you are not favored. There is a hierarchy that head office employees are a class above the field. They don’t respect reps to the point that at corporate events they host separate social events so they do not have to associate - (so much for inclusiveness). Leaders and head office constantly frown upon what the field delivers. Although none of them could execute to the expectation that they themselves set. Strong existence of nepotism and favoritism. For career growth, delivering performance on KPIs are a small metric to success. It’s mostly superficial that’s based on appearance (physically), fashion, use of buzz words and sports metaphors, and showcasing small projects that have no lasting benefits to the business. Salary is below industry standard. The bonus structure is awful. You are based on achieving volume targets that are built by head office objectives (not market reality) and changes constantly to control payout factor to maintain budget. -Company vehicle is inferior to competitors. -Work life balance is non existent - plus...
Company vehicle and pension matching.
No growth, pressure to deliver challenging targets, management
Highly stressful work culture. Promotions/advancement dependent on who you know and not skillset. Management made us work long hours. Provided a company phone so they can contact us at any time, including weekends and be asked to work. No work/life balance.
Multi Task driven company with the freedom for the territory manager to complete and manage their own priorities in a given time. Strong relationship with customers his required to full fill the prioritize given. a very good Active listener to complete and built relationship. I'm very well plan and pay attention to details to concluded great deals Try to convince partners by building a strong case and plan with objectives to met. Freedom is the best part from this job.
Not a good work atmosphere. Since BAT took over operations they have micromanaged the business to the point its highly stressful and not focussed on the customers or retailers that brought them their earlier success. There is zero corporate culture and they don’t care about individual employees or their families.
If you picture the tobacco industry as slimy manipulative and crude...you ain't missing much from their corporate side. They basically act the same way. Theres no real development, territory account reps get the brunt of things. They are connected to convience stores and gas bars, but most vendors dislike you and will find ways to give you a hard time. They have money (or had) and they have invested it in a lot of stupid things like their annual conference in Montreal or hiring a psychologist to analyze management trainees. Love to see a 22 year old, fresh out of college get checked on what spectrum they fall in. Useful? Not sure, but for ITCO, it seems to be. oo yea and lots of firing to get in with the times. Least there are some creative HR peeps/consultants out there who would glamorize their work/life culture
Discounted smokes, free car, gas
During my time at ITCAN, the tobacco industry was stil thriving. Management and people are excellent. The only downside is the competitive culture and fear of the global organization. Most enjoyable part is working with really world class people. Least enjoyable is legal framework around commercial and financial operations.
Was great years ago but it gets tougher and tougher every year and the industry is in a decline. Job is very routinary and challenging and could be easy but the company just makes it very complicated most of the time with complex offers and programs
benefits, company vehicle, per diem, cellphone & laptop
long hours, complicated programs and work/life bals not ideal
