      Good if you can't find a job - only a temporary-- wouldn't recommend as a career

      Pros

      - It's not a desk job which is somewhat liberating - I was one of the top sales reps regionally and the money isn't worth it - I sold Canadian tire credit cards, everyone already knew about them so sales were hard - My sales manager was a cool guy

      Cons

      - Got harassed onsite by customers numerous times - not much room for growth - you have to be very pushy

      It was very average in the beginning but became extremely repetitive

      Pros

      -Nice manager -Okay job -Bonuses depending on sales

      Cons

      -long hours under a gas station -selling credit cards under a gas station during the hot summer -in the beginning, it was okay and easy. As time went by, the job became very repetitive and annoying for me. -Team always insisting on knowing how many sales you had -I would sell around 40 credit cards per week but according to the manager, I did not make the bonus. After this, my motivation dropped.

      Selling Credit Cards at Gas Stations

      Nov 22, 2020 - Field Marketing Representative 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      It depends on how comfortable you are doing it. When I was employed, the program was RBC Bank Credit Cards and AirMiles program. Your goal would be to sign up as many people as possible and your initial contact would be when the pull into the gas station to fill up for gas. Training was good and the employees seemed genuinly nice people.

      Cons

      Feels like a scam, similar to how Triangle rewards gets pushed onto you at Canadian Tire stores. You are signing up people to have more credit cards and you are doing it in a rushed manner, approaching them at unexpected timing and you have to be convincing and persistant.

      Pros

      Decent staff flexible hours around school comission based pay

      Cons

      The contracts they had me on were about pitching credit cards to everyone in a department store. If you have amy morals around selling services like that to retirees and the like, don't bother with this job.
