Horrid place to work as a student
Probably the worst job I’ve ever had. Bad management and HORRIBLE hours. This “full-time” job gave us ~4-5 hours a day. The “per commission” pay is a scheme designed to underpay hard labour, as the time budgets (assigned by the manager) are IMPOSSIBLE to meet and your heavily physical and stressful work is devalued to the minimum wage. The hours are bad, the job is bad, the pay is bad. We had 2 on site physical accidents in my (short) time working there and the manager laughed it off. Do not rely on this job to pay your rent and groceries. Work here at your own risk.

Poor management, lack of equipment, summary of pay rarely seen, and vague contract and extent of work outline
Despite being marketed as minimum wage the job was actually paid based on estimated duration of jobs with "bonuses" awarded if the job was finished quicker then estimated. The door-to-door marketing aspect was paid at 10$/hour only coming up to minimum wage if you had gotten a lead for each hour worked, which doesn't sound terrible but keep in mind this is during off season as well. Summary of pay was seen 3 times, despite 4 months of work.Estimates would be undercut in order to secure sales (at the expense of workers), but would be scheduled as a building of the same size as the undercut price leading to scheduling conflicts. Broken equipment was replaced on 1 maybe 2 instances, leading to instances where only 1 crewmember could meaningfully work, which impeded our ability to complete work efficiently and on time. Was told to continue to use broken equipment, despite safety concerns. Travel would not be considered in estimates or scheduling, leading to days in which each jobs were in opposite ends of town without travel time accounted for in estimate. Worrying working at heights practices, and worrying teachings. Having come in with Working At Heights certification from outside of the company, co-workers who received company's working at heights training were not even aware of 6 foot height minimum for working at heights and 10 feet height for harnesses. Specific customer requests were often not included in scheduling leading where unfortunate but avoidable disappointments for customers.As season became less active, we were scheduled for days with >3 hours of work. Often not knowing the schedule before hand and early in the season scheduled weeks of nearly 60 hours without written agreement past 48 hours.

A great summer experience
My experience with College Pro was great. It is definitely the type of position that rewards you for hard work, and you do have to be willing to put in the work to reap the benefits. After 3 summers of working with College Pro, I learned so much more than I would've in a typical internship. It really helped me learn what I like and dislike, and how I work best.
