virtual sales (Former Employee) – home – 5 May 2017
Dont let them fool you, the at home job is being a telemarketer! They give you no actual training on the lines, just throw you out there on your first day. Management is very aggressive when it comes to you doing things their way and closing your sales no matter what. If you are a full timer and miss one day of making sales your hours are cut in half.
nice co workers
work everyday, constant belittling from management
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 10 August 2016
Very high pressure environment I didn't learn much besides doing absolutely anything to close a sale Management... I feared losing my job everyday Co-workers were great The hardest part of the job was dealing with upset clients The most enjoyable part of the job was closing a sale
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 15 March 2016
It was a great job with hours that worked around my schooling. Management was great and i had a great time working there. The people were great and we had fun competing for the prize incentives. I still keep in contact with some people who i met there.
sales man (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 January 2016
I meet up at the workplace with all the employees and we leave in groups around 5PM. We all get tablets to punch in information and then we go door to door promoting our business as a salesman. I have learned how to communicate and work with different individuals and also got to work with my friends as a Weed Man employee. The hardest part about the job was that u have to walk a long distance and many times the home owners wouldn't open their doors. Even though the job was tiring, it gave me a new experience and a good leadership skill for me to improve and pass on.
got to work with my friends and more hardworking people
In need of better management and buisness structure
Door Knocker (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 12 December 2015
Previous management was terrible, making the workload on the new workers coming in at the same time as new management a lot harder, they expected us to have high yes percentile only because they weren't reaching their end of season quota, even though the contract we all sign stated we needed to keep up 8 yeses per night with eventually them wanting us to have 11 or 12.
Lawn Care Services Technician (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 7 December 2015
Fun work place with supportive management. Although the salary was production based it was still a very well paying job, individuals just have to work hard for their money. The management was very supportive and helpful. I learned how to work in a fast paced environment while producing high quality work. As well I have refined my customer service ability by providing quality and on time services.
Lawn care technician (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 21 November 2015
Co-workers are fun to be around, as well as the manager of production.
Cons- Most customers complain at the start of the season because they were not aware of the yearly contract renew process. Customers, once signed up are contracted year after year and many are not aware.
Excellent customer service skills are essential to make this a good and bearable work life. Problem solving skills / people person/ Kind & respect for customers is essential. BE A GOOD PERSON :)
Con- Not enough commission on sales :( 5% for the hard work you put in to getting a sale isn't worth your effort :( However you are required to make sales and up sales almost every day. I did a good job at this :) however I must say was very upset with the %.
Pay Structure is confusing :( PAY vs Hours - Not Worth it :( :(
Good Job for a summer hobby if you have no other job lined up. I would consider going back next summer, but just because I enjoy dealing with the public and problem solving.
