    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    I worked at J-W Research full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Learned how to sell properly without overdoing it. Met one of the owners who talked about why he worked there and where the company was going. He always says hello when I see him in the office and he remembers my name. I really like the commissions you can make if you work hard.

    Cons

    Some negative sales reps that end up bringing you down. Managers need to deal with this. Few opportunities to grow unless you move. Not a job for everyone. You always have to be happy. Would be nice to get medical.

    Pros

    I like working for a bank because it has unlimited growth.

    Cons

    I was a little intimidated by number of failures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that instead of trying to always find new methods of marketing, you guys should stick to what works and find opportunities to improve it.

    I have been working at J-W Research part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It's an easy job. The management was so horrible that they got complaint by the Scotia Bank employees. It's a very simple job which they made it sound complicated.

    Cons

    Cheap payment, cheated out of commission, horrible management who begged people to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a life and pay up on commission, Behave properly so you won't be scolded at by clients' employees.

    I have been working at J-W Research (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, minimal supervision, most sales managers are very good at what they do

    Cons

    Zero raises, little to no incentives given to employee's/management, upper management is extremely condenscending and does not care about its employees or action plans for growth and potential opportunity. Too much turnover in 1 month, 16 people quit! A very reactive business...if you dont make the sales they fire you and dont give you an opportunity to fix it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer annual raises, create succession planning, offer benefits to sales reps. You make people jump through hoops to move up in the company. you should provide very clear outlines and goals and make them achievable and place realistic expectations on it people.

    Pros

    Company is good, good training. A good manager will have your back. Good money if you have what it takes. I did the Pres Choice MasterCard

    Cons

    No matter what the money is, it is horrible pushing credit cards. You come across jerks who are very rude to you even just for saying hello. You have to have tough skin.
