Declined to go further
Not past interview (Former Employee) –  Alberta9 April 2018
*A company that peels off the Workers wage (Siphon Effect) and the worker TAKES ALL RESPONSIBILITY/INSURANCE/PERMITS/TOOLS. Better off with Own Business or work for Legitimate Employer/employee situation.
*This is a weak type of pyramid scheme.
*Anyone who assumes low risk (which this company does) in a partnership type of business situation, is not to be trusted, as the company has little to lose!
Pros
This company assumes no risk
Cons
The risk is ALL on the worker!, Partnership is ALL against the worker!, False advertising on what actually is given back as wage/salary for worker compensation!

Not enough work

Too much time spent on estimating for small jobs.
Company gets higher percentage just for taking call.
You take all risks and carry all expenses for tools and vehicle.

no control who your customers are

Receptionist/Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB20 August 2015
Small office, with supportive management. Working with craftsman make every day different and challenging. Laid back in the sense we can go for lunch at any point during the day when it is not busy.

Drywall taper, home renovator (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON17 February 2014
When working for this company I was provided with job leads, I would go to the customers home and evaluate the work.projects that they wanted done. Provide the customer/client with a written estimate. If the client wanted to proceed with their projects I would schedule the start and finish dates, provide the customer with the required material list and suggest material vendors.

Good Job
Office Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 December 2013
Fast paced during busy seasons which teaches you how to use your time effectively. Small office environment, so must be very self-motivated. Love being able to be responsible for various issues and interacting with customers and contractors.

A very Productive place to work
CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) –  Sudbury, ON15 September 2012
I learned Multi tasking at its best....the company was still all old school. Not computerized yet, everything besides sales were hand written. I learned how to balance 38 different craftsmen in 5 different cities. Answering phones and promoting work orders from potential clients, scheduling work for craftsmen, as well as getting daily reports from craftsmen. Filing paperwork/jobs complete. As well as electronic and regular mail. Faxing, photocopying and maintaining the office when the boss was out of the office. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction with the public and craftsmen.
Pros
learned how to run an office more efficiently
