Pros: Just don't do it
Cons: You have been warned.
This is not just a negative review, but the truth.
Here is what you'll experience when you sign up for their job posting on kijiji.ca (keep in mind, this is a ghetto site for looking for jobs)
You'll receive a phone call the next day about your resume and will be asked to visit their yonge st. (Toronto's Head Office) office for an interview. The office is next to a training gym, "JCC."
Small, cramped, but pretty on the inside, you'll meet an attractive female receptionist who will hand you a sheet asking you to enter your SIN number, as well as several other personal information that I stupidly gave out...(you don't give out your SIN number unless you get hired; that's a red-flag right there). You'll sit on a row of chairs in an office of the size of a one bedroom apartment in New York, along with other aspiring Jordan Belforts.
Afterwards, a hiring manager will interview one-by-one. Regardless of what you say, you will be given a "second" interview, as well as an on-road field day to see the "Life in a Day" of a scammer.
Tomorrow, you will go to that interview and bring a pen and paper and sit through an hour of their amazing presentation on the amaaaaazing perks of the job, how everyone gets mercedes benz and how they all the staff members went to jamicaaaaaaa. For crying out loud...sorry, let me get back to my experience.
After they hook you in with how amazing their job is (they planned all this in stages VERY cleverly), they will take you in a ride inside a toyota mini-van with a bunch of other "technicians." Here's the best part: you will listen – more... to motivational sound tracks throughout the ENTIRE trip -- sounds fun, right? All while the guy you're driving with, your "mentor" for the job, will be talking to you to find out your interests and hook you in further for the job.
Ready for the best part? They will take you to Barrie. That's right. Or Oshawa. I literally thought I was getting kidnapped and wanted to open the door and bail, but I was too nervous to commit. During that time, you go through rich white neighbourhoods in "technician" work outfits to look the part.
"Why are you dressing like that? With hammers, flashlight, and measuring tape?"
"To look the part, it makes it more convincing."
...I went door-to-door, seeing how manipulative their service is towards people. I was glad that for the most part, residents were smart and slammed the door. For others, I wish I left a note telling them not to sign the dotted line to purchase their false-advertising HVAC services.
Unless you have a corrupted moral compass, I'd suggest you look elsewhere, where you can BUILD your resume with GOOD references. Oh, did I mention they took me to Harvey's to show me all their wonderful paycheck? Sadly, they didn't take me to a michelin star restaurant to show off their hard-earned cash from what the job promises. – less
