Ok

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I really enjoyed the environment in the office and the craftsmen/crafts women we worked along side of. The downside was that I had worked there for 6 years without one single raise. Ultimately this played a huge factor in my leaving.

Pros

Flexibility

Cons

Wages as very poor

Great employer for those looking to generate more income.

I would highly recommend Handyman Connection to those who are self employed and wish to generate more income without being endlessly micro managed.Very friendly staff.

great to work

i have known Handyman for many years as they know me too, any body who has complained about their salary is probably pricing wrong, I believe in quality but it takes time to achieve and time is money. I am not afraid to charge but rare are the complaints about the work performed not price, I am paid at the end of every contract and even more in according to new bonusses that i was not aware of, thanks for the honesty so in my opinion I think its a great group of people in Ottawa and a super system thanks guys and gals for your hard work and support

Pros

the feeling of belonging

Cons

hard to estimate hours required

Don’t waste your time.

This company isn’t worth working for, you won’t learn anything, you will only be disappointed and dissatisfied. The business model is terrible. The owner/boss isn’t a Carpenter and has never done the work and as a craftsman, you will never see eye to eye with him. The pay is low and the trades are responsible for everything. The types of work that is offered is “Industry scraps”.

Thanks

Great work, high pressure, poor pay for work required. Unexpected issues that arise are on craftsmans expense. Hours required are all hours of day and night.

Good Company

One of the best places I’ve worked in the sense of being around great people. I found I made fairly good money. My boss was a great person on the whole. Customers and workers were hit or miss like most companies. Overall I would recommend.

Great if you love driving and talking with people

It's a great place to work if you love driving and talking to lots of people because you will do a lot of both. As for the work, the company is positioned to take the jobs most others won't touch. Basically you are dealing with the bottom of the barrel. Save yourself the trouble.

Pros

Set your own schedule

Cons

Everything else

productive and fun working place

It is a good and nice environment to be around to be a part of a good change, repairing damages made in a house or changing the style of a house to suite the owner. Like changing laminate flooring, full bathroom renovation and all handy things in a house hold. I happen to lift a lot in the process and handle alot power tools

Declined to go further

*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.

Pros

self employed

Cons

no control who your customers are

Applicants Beware

This company has a horrible policy in terms of what you as the worker is worth. Save your dignity & valuable time and keep looking.

Productive work environment

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.

i will let you know when they hire me

they have a great job application....and a typical day is work until break then break for 15 minutes then go back to work until lunch. half hr later even though you feel like sleeping you work untillo the job is done. the most enjoyable about the day is looking at the work you have did and saying," that is a great job."

Pros

ask all the right questions

Cons

ask too many questions that were not relevant to the job. discriminating against criminals

Educational

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.
