Fun work environment, great staff to work with
Sales/Driver/General Labour (Former Employee) –  Kitchener-Waterloo, ONFebruary 14, 2013
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 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.
Pros
meeting new people, working hard and getting dirty.
Cons
not enough hours, tough to support a student girlfriend and myself

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 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.

YOU overwork & get underpaid!
GM (Former Employee) –  BCSeptember 5, 2013
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 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.
Pros
free junk
Cons
long hours, erratic scheduling.

Monotonous and bad hours
Inbound Sales Agent (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONDecember 1, 2014
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.
Pros
good people
Cons
monotonous and low pay

Truck Team Member (Current Employee) –  Calgary, ABJanuary 26, 2015
this was a fun place to work but being a full time employee you must pick up the shifts the part time people can't work, meaning 6/7 days isn't un natural. 10 hr days.
