    I worked at 411 Local Search Corp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They will negotiate salary with new candidates, so you can and should get a healthy base salary.

    Cons

    They hire managers in droves and fire them after weeks not months. They hired 9 in Feb and all have been terminated or quit. Impossible work environment. Foreign single owner who blocks any chance of progress. If you have a serious drug problem or emotional issues, this is your kind of company.

    Advice to Management

    Add levels of management between owner and employees to try to at least reduce the massive turnover.

    Pros

    This company will send you away crying. Please, do yourself a favour and do not entertain any positions available within this organization.

    Cons

    Highest turnaround rate I have ever seen from an employer.
    No loyalty whatsoever to their senior employees (they will fire WITHOUT CAUSE or warning - even to people with 5+ year seniority)
    Watched them fire strong, hard working professional managers that had worked there longer than 5 years only to promote staff members who show up to work high on cocaine, marijuana, and alcohol. All between February and July 2017.
    50% of the staff uses their lunch break to get intoxicated on one of the above substances.
    Unprofessional managers that are inconsistent with expectations. None of them expect the same from you and is impossible to please them all at once since their expectations are so different.
    Pay rate for sales team is high above the provincial average where nearly every other position in the company is significantly lower than they should be paying you.
    Pay is semi-monthly instead of bi-weekly.
    CFO is rude and unapproachable.

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing your best employees and promoting undeserving drunks and cokeheads. Unify your expectations so pleasing you is an actual a possibility. You cannot have one manager making sexual jokes and another one giving you dirty looks if you laugh at it.
    Be professional. Be dependable. Nobody wants to work for a company that does not give them peace of mind. Nobody wants to stay loyal or dedicated to a company that does not stay loyal to them. If you want your company to succeed - you need employees who are dedicated and care about it. With your turnaround rate - people aren't staying long enough to care and the ones that are fear that they will be let go at any time without cause - so they dont allow themselves to be as dedicated as they should be. Everyone working here saw how dedicated, caring and professional many employees were that were let go without cause and now are afraid of thier jobs.
    Nearly everyone in my department, along with a few other departments spend most of the day searching for a new job.

    Pros

    411.ca has a millennial, energetic, and diverse environment. Progress is based on team work, and transparent communications from the executive team.

    Cons

    Unfortunately salaries are not industry competitive, nor accommodating for linguistic skills.

    Advice to Management

    It's important to recognise the employees you have and that your typical customer service agent does the job of at least 2 people.
