Friendly workplace where a lot of money can be earned but if you don't put in the work you get nothing
Lawn Aeration Specialist (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB21 May 2017
The work place is a friendly place to work with good staff members, It's a competitive workplace because there are a lot of bonuses (extra money) that could be won. Its always good to start the day with a positive attitude because the hours are long and you move around with a heavy equipment but when you're able to get many lawns to aerate you can earn a lot of money. It's commission based and door to door, so it is a job you have to be patient and determined with.
Pros
Pick ups and Drop Offs, Friendly environment, quick pay
Cons
Long hours, heavy work equipment

Hard Work but Worth it
SALES REPRESENTATIVE AND CONTRACTOR (Former Employee) –  Kitchener-Waterloo, ON11 May 2017
The hours tend to be long but this job is one that teaches you a lot about yourself; your work ethic, discipline, attitude, and how powerful your mindset is. Calls for a never say die mentality.
Pros
Great mentor-ship and pay
Cons
Long hours

Good
Landscaper (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB11 May 2017
the most enjoyable part about working with CPS was the way the leaders where very humorous and very motivational despite the job being challenging. the hard part about this job is not actually the job (aeration) but the part about going from house to house looking for customers. on a good day, one can make so much money, and on a bad day one can walk back home with as low as $5 or nothing at all.
Pros
Highly Paying on a Good Day
Cons
Outdoor job exposed to harsh weather. On a bad day you can come back wit $0

Commission based labor job that pushes you to the limits
Lawn Aeration Specialist (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON7 May 2017
Everyday starts at 8am. Once in the workplace, you stand in a line and sign in, everyone jumps in their selected van with their manager for that day. I was placed in a different city in a new neighbourhood each day i worked. The hours were long, from 8am to 8pm but due to the fact it was commission based, you could make your own breaks and time for lunch, also everyone was responsible to bring a lunch. I spent my day knocking door to door on each street, in my assigned area while dragging a 3,000 pound Aeration machine around. The main focus of the job was to get the sale from homeowners wanted to have their lawn aerated. Upon acquiring a sale, i was responsible for aerating lawns in a fast and effective manner using the aeration machine, and then collecting money, getting a phone number and their name. The best part of the job was being picked up by my manager in the van to head back to the facility to collect my pay.
Pros
positive and motivational environment
Cons
long hours with little guarantee on making sales

Don't waste your time
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Kitchener-Waterloo, ON6 May 2017
Very long long day work. The commission is poor, all the money goes to the company's pocket. No rest time, no lunch time, nowhere to go to the washroom, no guaranteed income, they exploit you as much as they can. Disturbing the neighbor more than helping them.
Pros
nothing
Cons
Long time work, low paid, bad condition

You will make less than minimum wage
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON4 May 2017
First of all, this company used to be called Spring Masters. They've changed their name a bunch of times due to bad press, and that should be a red flag to you right out of the gate. Secondly, your pay will be between $0 and $150 a day, the latter only if you are very good and very lucky, and you will almost always make less than what would amount to minimum wage.

Not only is the commission kind of ridiculous considering you're doing all the selling and all the work yourself, and they're doing little more than offering you some supplies to work with, but you will often have to work an hour or two with no possibility of pay just putting everything away at the end of the day. A lot of neighbourhoods will be hit by companies that can undersell you because they don't have to pay egregious fees to their head office, and a lot of people know they can do the work themselves with pretty minimalistic tools.

I won't say this job is all bad. It was kind of fun being outside all day, but ultimately it's just not worth it. You will never earn in proportion to your labour and hours. There will be days where you work 10 long hours for maybe $20, or even for nothing, and the days where you break past $100 will be exceptionally rare, and it's kind of offensive that this company is so bold-facedly lying by saying otherwise. When you're thinking about applying for this job, ask yourself one question: how would you react if someone knocked on your door at 10 am and asked you if you want your lawn aerated? Either you wouldn't be home or you'd try to politely have them leave as soon as possible.
  more... No one likes being bothered for a service they're not looking for, and you're going to have quite a time convincing people it's worth their money, especially when the tools for doing it themselves aren't as expensive as a single day's labour on your end.

Honestly, just skip this job posting. You will never be so desperate that working here is a good idea.

Your entire salary is commission based so it is possible to work the entire day and only make 20 dollars. This is especially more likely when it is raining or rained
Pros
Possible large amount of money
Cons
Chance of making no money the entire day

Commission Sales job with huge earning potential!
Salesperson (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON25 April 2017
I've been with Canadian Property Stars for 9 seasons now. Yes it is a very hard job physically and mentally. The earning potential on a daily basis is out of this world. It's definitely not for the weak minded. Hard work and effort pay off. Bonuses daily! Fun contests, and seasonal bonuses as well.
Pros
paid daily, choose your days you want to work
Cons
very long hours

Long Hard Work For So Little In Return
Salesman (Former Employee) –  London, ON20 April 2017
A typical day included selling the company’s product. Duties included prep driveways, cleaning, taping and spraying driveway with asphalting tar. Pay was horrible. Only made money if you sold product and even with sales pay was not good unless you sold many daily. Horrible structure for pay model, 100% commission based, one day I worked for 11 hours and made 50$
Pros
Nothing.
Cons
Worst Paying Job i have ever experienced
