Account Executive (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 16 January 2013
I worked for Coverall of BC for over 2 years and recently spoke to another ex-salesperson; this inspired me to share my experience...
The Coverall business model is such that the salesperson is expendable and an easily replaced facet of the business. The owner is a man who has no concern for his sales team and as a result treats them like slaves. The culture at Coverall is cancerous and has one watching his back at every move. I have been in sales for over 20 years and held numerous positions from retail to executive and I can honestly say this was the worst sales job I have ever had. In my short tenure I witnessed the replacement of two full sales teams (6 people), some of who were very talented, and if nurtured properly would have done very well; but they have no time for that. On top of this the infighting was unbearable. Everybody blames the salesperson if something goes wrong.
Commercial Cleaner (Current Employee) – Langley, BC and Aldergrove, BC – 17 May 2015
A typical day cleaning is dividing between me and my father. I help him clean industrial establishments. I've learned to get used to the repetitive aspect of a job and manage tools I need to finish the job effectively. The hardest part of the job is making sure I've cleaned everything. The most enjoyable part of the job is accomplishing it and seeing the work you've put into cleaning a workplace.
