Contractor (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 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.
Property Maintenance (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 11 August 2017
I love working here! At times it can be overwhelming if you work consecutive days, but everyone I work with is always positive and cheerful especially the managers which make working there a great experience.

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.
Tough and challenging. Rewarding... if you are good

Core aeration and lawn rejuvenation specialist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 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.
Lawn Care (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 19 June 2017
This job is just a way to scam desperate people into working hard labor for long hours with very minimal pay and no room to move up. I only post this because I do not want them taking advantage of anyone else the way they have to so many people I know. The management is extremely hostile and short tempered, they treat their employees like dirt. No matter what you deserve to be paid for the amount of labor required from you here and you deserve without a doubt to be treated with basic human decency which this place does NOT offer. If I could give negative stars I would.

No questions asked it's a tough job and management won't shy away from that fact.. If you are used to taking an hour long lunch with two or three 30 minute breaks for snacks or relaxation and playing on your phone and a few smoke breaks here and there.. Good luck, stay home and wait for your chance to work at a fast food joint or Walmart.
For those people who are willing to work hard and long hours, and learn how to be successful at what they do.. They can make a lot of money anywhere. 300+ a day. But really it's all up to you and your attitude.
A company that requires a good attitude and good workmanship from its employees. They care about their customers.
Free ride to and from work, excellent pay if you can keep up, tons of bonuses for top performers, fun and friendly managment
Long hours, exposure to weather can be uncomfortable if you aren't prepared, your results mirror your attitude and hard work.
Worker (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 30 May 2017
Garbage company, poor workmanship, pathetic management. This is the definition of a "fly by night" company, and should be avoided at all costs. Two guys pushing a cart around a neighborhood is the epitome of unprofessional.
Excellent for competitive people who are comfortable working on commission
Sales/Service (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 25 May 2017
It was an okay place to work, it's really tasking cause you have to use machinery and work outdoors under any weather condition but if you are good at selling and talking to people you will make lots of money daily. I enjoyed the experience overall, and i got to meet really awesome managers and fellow workers.
