Scam company..beware
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON3 November 2017
Scam company. The owner is an absolute crook. Workers are not trained. Head office staff are over stressed, under paid and are taught to lie to customers. They make people pay for services they didn't ask for, improperly store personal information. No one should ever be proud to work for this shotty company. The most unprofessional, disorganized and dysfunctional company I've ever seen.
Pros
None
Cons
Low Pay, no support, untrained field workers, management takes no action, no benefits

Worst job of my life !!
Office (Former Employee) –  Ottawa1 November 2017
This company is a huge scam with many liars making money off the backs of hard workers with high hopes. They make false promises to both their employees AND the poor suckers that pay for services.
This is where I learned first hand about corruption!
Awful! !

SALES PERSON (Former Employee) –  edmonton5 October 2017
lots of potential to make a lot of money, also lots of potential for failure for non outgoing people. Need to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. Lots of character in this company. Also the CEO is awesome.

unstable work, seasonal
Door to door sales (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON5 October 2017
unstable work, seasonal, anyone is approved, paid by piecework.horrible management, will let you work in poor weather conditions outdoors, you get paid a percentage of what you sell, if you don't sell you make $0. Good place if you have no choice. Door to door sales
Pros
good money if you produce and work very very hard in the 5 months period
Cons
anyone can join and most people don't get treated fairly, seasonal

Unprofessional
Fall Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON26 September 2017
Working here was an inconvenience. You had to push heavy equipment door to door trying to make sales. From 9am to 5pm sometimes with no sales. No sales means no pay.

Friendly staff and management
Contractor (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB20 August 2017
A very well-organized company, the managers have the right balance of authoritative and commanding with friendly and personable. While they do their best to motivate their workers, they will also be merciless to workers that are late, unfriendly, intoxicated, etc.

However, the commission based salary can be difficult as working 10 hours a day can be met with being paid below minimum wage. While completing more jobs does mean higher pay, this is often difficult as most homeowners outright hate us on sight simply because we're going door-to-door.
Pros
Free barbecue on Mondays
Cons
Long hours, no benefits

It was a friendly environment
Aerator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB15 August 2017
It was good job, learned how to work an aerator machinery. Guess the most enjoyable part of it was able to finally work independently. Was a full day of walking to door to door.
Pros
all day work
Cons
commissions sales

Good experience for students
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  North York, ON15 August 2017
They provide training first day but it's not very thorough. The pay is based on how many sales you made so you must be an outgoing person. But hours are long and sometimes no worth the day of work.

More of a sport than an actual job.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON31 July 2017
Canadian property stars will only pay their workers commission for 9 hours of work which include pushing a 2 person cart full of asphalt and equipment. Their best "players" will make around 300$ a day but everybody who makes a sale that isn't doing it alone gets between 25 and 32 percent of what they're actually paid. Loss of property such as a Canadian Property Stars pen will cost the employee 5$. I highly suggest looking elsewhere for a better paying job unless you think you're up for the challenge.
Pros
Meet new people.
Cons
Long hours.

not for eveyone
Core aeration and lawn rejuvenation specialist (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB11 July 2017
its an alright job for some people but for me and almost everyone else i've talked to who've been hired by these guys it's mostly a scam designed to make quick and fast cash off of child labor. if you've been recently laid off from a labour intensive trade and have free time to work 13 hours a day then this could be the job for you.
Pros
you get cash, sometimes daily, sometimes weekly
Cons
13 hour work days no exceptions

Sales (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB5 July 2017
Great job if your good at sales. The job is souly basied off of commission. If your not good with strangers or really shy it's a hard job to get good at.
Pros
Meeting new people and gaining more experience
Cons
Long days, not aloud to leave early

Lawn Mowner (Former Employee) –  Ontario24 June 2017
The pay is extremely low (no base pay at all)!!
They make promises of high pay but many employees barely make it! Most of the times you make no money even after a hard day of labour work!
Pros
There are no pros
Cons
No base pay!

Window Washing Salesperson (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB19 June 2017
I cannot recommend this job to anyone. Nor can I speak against it. Whether or not you will like it, depends on whether or not you're willing to put in a lot of time and effort into it.
Pros
Competitive environment; bonuses and incentives
Cons
Relatively low commission rate, long hours
