    Pros

    In the busy season, there is plenty of work for everyone. After the summer is over work becomes scarce and inevitably layoffs occur.

    Cons

    You cannot generalize about the company based on one location, but seasonality is a fact of life in the moving and storage business no matter where you go

    Advice to Management

    Diversify. Those who have been the most successful in this business have been flexible enough to take on other kinds of busnesses.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kelowna, BC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bekins (Kelowna, BC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Received a response back from my online application asking for a YouTube presentation rather than initial face to face thru HireGuru. I requested a face to face since I didn't feel comfortable putting myself out there on YouTube, I was advised that I would be pulled from the candidate list instead as a response.
