Reluctant...
In-bound sales agent (Former Employee), TorontoDecember 10, 2014
I worked in the in-bound sales position in their Toronto office - You Move Me - In-bound Sales agent. It's important to keep in perspective that this is a new company (born: Feb, 2013) and that their 'real' objective is to increase franchises first and foremost. This fact takes precedence over anything and all else. Upper management in the corporate – more... is not that sharp. Their marketing is awesome - created outside the corporate entity. Important to keep in mind... "It is what it is" ... an inbound sales center with well lubricated turnstiles for doors. – less

Monotonous and bad hours
Inbound Sales Agent (Former Employee), Toronto, ONDecember 1, 2014
Pros: good people
Cons: monotonous and low pay
Standard eight hour shifts start as early as 6:00 am. Low hourly wage and poor commission structure. Managers and co-workers were nice people to work with but upper management are egotistical. Good culture and fun work environment. Not a professional sales role, it is more of order taking and dispatching jobs to franchise partners.

YOU overwork & get underpaid!
GM (Former Employee), BCSeptember 5, 2013
Pros: free junk
Cons: long hours, erratic scheduling.
Unskilled Management. Zero benefits.
Overtime all the time. At hands of franchise owner that may or may not be invested in the success of the business you will end up frustrated. The head office is probably the only reason this company was rated in the top 100 places to work in BC.
My opinion: there are better jobs out there for the minimum wage paid – more... by JUNK. AS well the lack of potential bonus / profit sharing as well as lack of future potential makes this an unsustainable job for most. – less

Fun work environment, great staff to work with
Sales/Driver/General Labour (Former Employee), Kitchener-Waterloo, ONFebruary 14, 2013
Pros: meeting new people, working hard and getting dirty.
Cons: not enough hours, tough to support a student girlfriend and myself
A fairly laid back atmosphere, where having fun and working hard went hand in hand. Dealing with customers, haggling over prices, navigating the streets of Kitchener/Waterloo and surrounding areas under tight deadlines was an excellent way to pay the bills. I knew I wouldn't be able to make a career out of it however, but until I returned to the Georgian – more... Bay area, it was a great working environment. Most days followed a standard routine; clean and prep the trucks, review the schedule and sales with management, then roll out, perform on the spot sales with a colourful cast of customers, followed by a landfill or donation run. We also were required to invent and carry out various marketing duties when possible. As stated before, I left the job for a better career but was definitely sad to leave. – less
