Assistant Office Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 23, 2018
A typical work day is coming in fresh with the intent to be as confident as the previous day to get things done in a timely fashion. Always making sure that I revise over work that was corrected and learning ways to be better for the next project. I follow a protocol of the most important tasks to be attended to 1st. I make sure all accountables (Fed EX, UPS, etc.) are tallied up for inside & external distribution. I check with the other departments, such as hospitality,are in good as far as workflow and meetings have the right items. The lunch hour is spent clearing the mind. After intermission, its on to the computer to check for supplies to be ordered around 3 pm. 4-5 pm its time to Make sure accountables are checked again, copy jobs are QC'd. 6 pm is the deadline for dinners to be ordered. There's the wind down time where documents and others of importance are prepped for next day delivery. Once all the night attorneys are informed of dinners then its time to prepare for the next day.
Saturday lunches are free
little compensation for services, micromanaging, bad insurance
Office Services Representative (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – January 30, 2019
Canon is the most backward company, I have ever worked for. The management rushes things and is caught pleasing clients, instead of caring for employees. Management also micromanages and picks at employees for no reason. It’s not worth it. I truly would never recommend this company to anybody.I am genuinely looking forward to the day, I can get a new job.
Document Control Specialist (Former Employee) – Waverly, IA – December 12, 2018
I really enjoyed the work and coworkers/supervisors at this location. The work kept me busy and the day flew by. Some coworkers did not pull their weight, but most were wonderful, as were the supervisors.
Office Services Representative (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 5, 2018
This place is one of the least that I could recommend to anyone, bad handling, bad benefits, bad training is one of the worst companies to work with. In my opinion is a place for people who do not like to work hard.
No Benefits, No good Training, No good Management.
Good for people who don't like to work or perform.
Claims Processing Representative (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 9, 2018
Canon Business has taught me a lot of new routines. Its not stressful but can be but not likely. they pretty much don't like to give raises. the medical benefits are not that good. They somewhat looks out for they employees.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – June 11, 2018
The job itself is busy, a typical day sorting and delivering mail and FED-EX,DHL, and UPS packages, data entry. There are no advancements for me and my position. The hardest part of my job would be lifting and delivering heavy large boxes especially during the holidays. I enjoy meeting new people from different cultures. Management is very displeasing have no concern for their employees.
Meeting new people, and making friends with the customers.
Facilities Coordinator (Former Employee) – NJ – August 11, 2018
Horrible managers Horrible salaries Horrible Benefits,medical insurance has unrealistic premiums No teamwork Ratio of Canon mgrs. to workers is at least 3 to 1 No loyalty because you are a contractor and it is reinforced daily by mgmt. As a Contractor you have two masters, Canon and the Client which makes it almost impossible for you to please both.
Logistics Building Coordinator (Current Employee) – Apopka, FL – July 9, 2018
Canon is a very productive place of employment,and also alot of team work, and communication is involve. The most enjoyable part of the job was assisting the cients and learning there culture, and also gathering with my co-workers. My hardest part of the job was picking up and droping off the mail do to heavy traffic.
Client Services Representative (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – March 29, 2018
Canon is a very customer service oriented company that offers a variety of services from copy/print/bindery to office management, furniture moving, office relocation, and a variety of tasks outside of the usual scope of services. Simply ask to find out if there's a rate that can be applied or a service handled.
The sites vary but the tasks are usually similar, you are the cog that keeps the wheel running behind the scenes. It's an often thankless job similar to that of a janitor. (You may have actual janitorial duties assigned).
Due to the shift from paper to digital work, CBPS primarily offers assistance with the maintenancing of meetings (setup, catering, cleaning, at/iv). Lifting heavy objects is often required including assistance with furniture relocation and building.
Great Clients in some cases, Steady Hours
Low Compensation rate for the Jack of All trades mentality, PTO is used for any time off and must be accrued through an hours bank
Office Services Representative/Porter (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – May 27, 2018
Job is typically mundane and regimental. You are encouraged vto pursue activities that make Canon look good, but offer nothing to you. Vacation scheduling is rather simple, and generally there is enough people on sight to cover your absence. There are definitely quiet periods when you are sitting and staring into a void, but it does get busy.
Mailroom Clerk (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MA – February 4, 2019
I had hoped to remain with Canon indefinitely, as my direct manager and co-workers were a great bunch who didn't hesitate to help you out if you needed a hand. Our "Operations Manager" though was another story, as I was soon to find out. While I won't bore anyone with the details, l will say that I went from an outstanding employee review two weeks ago to the unemployment line just now because there was absolutely ZERO loyalty shown me. If you stand up for yourself or for any of your co-workers in the face of harassment by one of the client's people you will be summarily discharged with no appeal or possible recourse.
As such, I would advise anyone considering going to work for Canon not to, that is unless you have zero self-respect.
None that come immediately to mind.
No job security. Expensive health care. Toxic corporate environment.
Site Manager (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 15, 2018
Canon is a good fit if you are willing to take accountability for the actions of upper management. You are expected to manege yourself and your employees, be the liaison for the company and they dont really want to compensate you for it.
Law Firm Receptionist (Current Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – April 4, 2018
PROS: - All the managers I have met have been AWESOME! - Great place to start if you need to get some work experience. If you are willing, you will learn a lot. - Benefits are decent.
CONS - Human Resources (in California) is VERY frustrating to work with. - You only earn 1 PTO day a month. Days must be used by end of the year or they go away. This is the only paid time you get for sick leave/dependent care/vacation. - Not a lot of room to advance within the company.
