Commission based labor job that pushes you to the limits
Lawn Aeration Specialist (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 7 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.
positive and motivational environment
long hours with little guarantee on making sales
