lots of appointments generated
Estimator (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON20 March 2019
2/3 of installs never happened because they never have enough installers.
The work culture is competitive but not sustainable.
Work is non stop.
if you like to go like crazy and never stop working this is the best place to work.
they fire operation managers regularly.
Pros
lots of appointments
Cons
can't seem to install the sales generated

Obnoxious American High pressure culture
Event marketer (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 March 2019
As an event marketer
You are asked to basically harass every person that walks by your booth
And to continually pressure them to get their name and whatnot for you to pass onto the telemarketing crew.
The telemarketers will then set up appointment for an extremely high pressured over priced sales pitch that may work in America but is bothersome for Canadian people.
The Product itself is very Creative and looks of excellent quality
My problem is of the way it is sold and distributed here in Canada
I have also heard many many horror stories from previous customers about after sale service issues as well as from potential customers that had estimates and felt bullied and that the price ( upwards of $30/linear foot) was excessive.
NOT Worth the effort to work at this sweatshop
Pros
Quality product for sure
Cons
So many negative and obtuse things.

Do your self a huge favour and stay away from theses clowns!
Installer (Former Employee) –  London, ON7 January 2019
American company with American job couture.
Terrible, terrible management, install managers go to the US. for training
( gutter school ) on how to install gutter protection and also how to maximize profits at all cost.
If that means scre...wing the installer, sales reps and the customer over then so be it, it’s all about the money with these guys and believe me it’s all about the money, You’r a absolute nobody in they’r books.
They send you to canceled jobs hours away, with wrong colour,
Bad info, etc. It’s your loss.
They deduct pay with no explanation.
Horrible communication and lack of information to get the job done, you figure it out!
Constantly on you back to work 24/7, they just won’t stop demanding you working 10-12 hour days, all days.

Ps. You are never going to make $1500- 2500 a week when it’s all set and done.

Just stay away!
Pros
None
Cons
Pretty much everything

Installing for this company is awesome
Installer (Current Employee) –  London, ON18 June 2018
I've been installing for leaf filter for about a month and a bit now, though there wasn't much in the form of training, the job is extremely straight forward and pays very well. As long as you cross your T's and dot your i's its a nice stream line gig. The only complaint i would have is some days you have to travel quite far to a job, and though they pay travel, its still very time consuming! Owen sound from London is 3.5 hours both ways, that's almost an 8 hour day in travel alone.

As for managers, I see a lot of people complaining about "favorites" but I've noticed as long as you are honest and keep communication open with them they will help you with anything you need. note to those who are complaining; If all you do is complain, would you want to deal with you?
Pros
Work alone, exceptional pay for ease of workload
Cons
Travel, they pay it but you still have to actually do it

Strict money grabbing with far too many customer problem that are ignored for months. No life as you have no time for family.
Sales (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON29 December 2017
Poor product that doesn’t work in our winters. Poor installers as they are paid well below the going rate. They are not employees and receive very little training.
They do not clean out most gutters as promised.
Salespeople don’t know why they have parts of their jobs deducted from their pay. As there usually is never a reason on the statement. Appts are not confirmed and many salespeople quit due to poor appts. The homeowner doesn’t know why we showed up. There is a lot of driving. You might have an appt in Niagara and then Brampton and then Bracebridge. They don’t pay gas or mileage.
A very American Military style company where you are treated like a grunt.
Pros
Good marketing
Cons
Don’t know the Canadian marketplace. They just grab the money aggressively.

Not a safe company to work for.
Sub-Contractor (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON9 April 2017
Company will set up bad appointments on sub-contractors cost.
Danger to income ratio not worth it. Company does not pay for extra work including ease drop cleaning which add more time to the job.
