a lot of work and they don't want to pay the raise we got was 10cents meanwhile we only made 11.00 . the boss was rude no matter how much work u did or even tried to help her she would put you down . I even caught her talking bad in Spanish about me
Cleaner/Maintenance (Current Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 20 January 2019
This job is a joke, we are not trained properly nor do we have proper safety equipment but are expected to clean up needles, vomit, blood, feces and urine. The supervisor should not have the job. everyone hates the supervisor yet no one will say anything. They constantly add jobs to your list even if its not your area. We are constantly understaffed because no one wants to work for a company that cant take care of there workers. NO BENEFITS NO RAISES NO PROPER SAFETY GEAR
the most enjoyable part of my day is when i get to punch out and go home and i'm not the only one who feels that way
another thing that is really weird and seems to echo other reviews about this company is that my pay seem to constantly be different every 2 weeks even though i work the same shifts and hours every day
Janitor/Cleaner (Former Employee) – Orillia, ON – 15 January 2019
Bee clean maybe a good company but management not good in orillia manager plays favorites always worried about the smallest thing instead of big picture doesn't matter if your on time all the time or late. They have people being played to talk most of the day. Manger doctors pay cheques. Worst place to work people in build are nothing but nasty.
team member/cleaner (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 January 2019
very productive workplace with respectful and engaging team members. you will feel comfortable fitting right in. However the job is a janitorial service meaning you'll have to toughen up and clean some eye unpleasant things.
restaurant discounts if a restaurant is in the area your cleaning. eg. expo centre
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 1 January 2019
This Company is very unorganized and upper management is a joke. If you come into a role as the Supervisor be prepared to have to deal with the mess from before. One Human resources manager is very unprofessional and is more concerned about her looks than the job. No wonder Bee Clean has such a bad reputation
Cleaner/Janitor (Former Employee) – Okanagan, BC – 30 December 2018
A typical day includes driving 50 km to and from work. The company does not pay your gas and they do not pay overtime. The work hours start in the evening and usually the hours are 4-6 max hours aloud to work, anything over that is usually questioned and rearranged without your consent and if there is ever a time where over time has to be paid the supervisor will remove those hours from your time sheet without consent from the employee. This has happened to me twice while working for this company. There is no room for growth in this company. They also throw new jobs at you such as washing windows out side and inside the building you are assigned but they do not supply the proper window cleaning equipment and so you end up washing the windows anyway which can take quite a few hours to do but they dont give you an estimated time and that is when the over time is put down on the time sheet and then questioned and rearranged. You start to feel taken advantage of and all your hard work goes unnoticed all because they simply refuse to pay overtime. It is what it is.There is no stability.
Days are long and clients are never happy. Promises of training but unless its free it never happens. I had looked at numerous courses that would have been beneficial but they were never approved.
Upper management is constantly only worried about the bottom line. No real benefits to speak of, the company says it can't make it work although there are options out there. It all comes down to dollars an cents for the board of directors and owners. A well thought out retirement plan with a decent wage would create long term worthwhile employees.
Workplace culture is as expected in the local office, fun group to work with. The regional office expects you to do your job, but no one really appreciates the people below their level, and if something goes wrong they are quick to judge and to lay blame.
You are looked at as not really knowing anything if you don't have a university education or fit into their perception of what you be like, dress like or act like. If you question things, you are looked at as a trouble maker.
You are supposed to get yearly reviews for raises but these never happen due to they refuse to provide raises, they are always looking to replace you with new blood which is cheaper. Constantly told to watch spending while upper management flies in and out on seaplanes instead of using a more affordable means like BC Ferries.
The hardest part is to continually show up for work and try to be happy to be there all the while wondering what is going to go wrong today. and the amount of paperwork that is required with limited staffing to achieve this ismore... incredible.
You can feel work tension at other offices and levels, I used to believe that this would be a place you could actually build a future with, but that is not so or true anymore. If you are not under the eyes of the head office, little is known about you and you won't move up the ladder so to speak. Bee Clean has over the years achieved an "old boys club" feel to it.less
Its a job and thankful to have one although constantly looking for something better.
Can be extremely demanding, frustrating and filled with last minute requests.
Housekeeper/Cleaner (Former Employee) – Hinton, AB – 19 October 2018
The forestry campus is cool inside some of the areas and it's neat to have a workplace surrounded by the woods.
BUT! I was let go without notice and I was told " you're detail is awesome, the best even, if I could clone you..you'd fit more independent work..etc" I looked at my sheet and it said the opposite.. poor performance. I knew I was let go because I clashed with someone that passed their probation. They cut a lot of corners, and tattled all the time over any petty thing they could think of. (You may even know them)
During that time, I picked up after them, and chose not to be petty/ stoop to their level ..aka stir up more drama in the workplace.
After I was let go, I was told there were cleaning options very close to where I lived, but later only got one really far away option that only paid $600. a month...and then never heard from them again
like really? some people are single parents that have no one, no support, no subsidy..etc
management, co-workers, high turn over, inconsistent training and hours, minimum wage, everything really.
Account Supervisor (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 14 September 2018
During my typical workday, I am responsible for overseeing my teams as they progress on various assignments. I check in and help them with any issues they may be having and coaching. I keep in touch with clients, update them on our progress and make sure they are satisfied with the services.

Baggage Service Agent (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 9 August 2018
The relationship between management and crew was toxic, to say the least.
Management would regularly lie to both the crew, and the higher ups about a given situation. Nor would management take responsibility for any mistakes they would make, and would do their best to scapegoat a member of the crew.
The union also did nothing for us. We had no steward for the majority of my time working there.

Parking Lot Attendant (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 26 July 2018
The most enjoyable part is finishing my everyday work, my obligation and responsibilities. The hardest part of the job is the same with other jobs, nothing is easy but the important thing is working and finishing the job with a high quality work.
Janitor (Former Employee) – Nelson, BC – 12 July 2018
I worked for Bee Clean for 10 years, started off at 10 dollars an hour, ended at 15 dollars an hour, that's a 50 cent raise every year...only thing is sometimes I wouldn't receive a raise for 2 or more years without having to argue with my boss about it. They made us clean up used needles, blood, and other bodily fluids without proper training and safety supplies to the extent that I had to go to Worksafe BC on two occasions to report that I felt un-safe there. I was verbally assaulted and spit at from mental health people using the building and when I reported it was told that they were glad that it happened outside the building as opposed to inside as then they weren't liable. They do not care about their employees and will do anything to get out of paying you severance pay or having to pay overtime. I would go so fair as to say that it is better to be on Social Assistance then work for these people.

Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 June 2018
At the site I use to work at employees were working with hazardous chemicals without proper training or a WHMIS certificate when requested multiple times they still wouldn't receive training Site supervisor kept work place label's where employees couldn't access them if needed most employees did not know where the work place labels were kept as they were kept in a room only the site supervisor could access and due to this issue many bottles were unlabled yet had chemicals being used in them Management is not qualified for there position they hold I could go on, best part about this job was leaving it
