Growing experience like no other
Operator (Current Employee) –  Whitby, ON25 August 2018
In this position, you have the opportunity to grow and develop like no other role you will find as a student. You have the opportunity to learn invaluable sales, organizational, and management skills that basically transfer over to every other aspect of life. You have the possibility to make a lot of money, if you're willing to work harder than you ever have before. The network surrounding you and the training you get is one of the single best networks you will find in your life, and it will push you to find your better self. This position is not for everyone and is designed for those who are better than average. It's for those who are attracted to the possibility to be pushed beyond your limits and enjoy the challenge. It's long hours, and, like any other business, it will be a while before you see a profit. If you are unwilling or unable to work hard, and you want a smooth ride through the summer, you will not make good money for the amount of hours you worked. In this role, you will see continuous cycles of highs and lows, where the lows suck and highs are phenomenal. Would only recommend if you think you have a work ethic and dedication the excels beyond your peers. All-in-all, the best part of this challenging opportunity is that whether you succeed or fail, it will be one of the largest developmental experiences of your life and will set you on a better and higher path for your future career.
Pros
Possibility for good pay, guarantee of development, good network of people.
Cons
Long hours, hard work, no guarantee of success.

Work Hard Play Hard
Operator (Former Employee) –  Kingston, ON23 July 2018
No beating around the bush this job is hard but super rewarding. Student Works provides you with all the tools run a successful business whether it be Painting or Exterior Cleaning. Two quality traits are needed to be a good to great operator! Strong personable skills for dealing clients on both the sales side of things and the production side. The other trait it will pay to be great at is having a strong work ethic and Student Works will help to encourage this with competitive weekly leader boards, weekly calls with coaches and a great network of people that are all wanting to push themselves to be better.

All in all, I had a great experience with Student Works after operating for two years and making six times what my peers made and working three times as much. Great company events and the people you network with is like no other.
Pros
Lots of freedom in schedule if organized
Cons
Working at times 60+ hours/week

Exhilerating way to improve your qualities and develope new ones
Operator (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NS23 January 2017
SWP offers students the opportunity to be young entrepreneurs and gives them the training, coaching and backup to do so. The work is hard but the payoff is huge. The environment is amazing and the social events are a blast. The people who are saying that it is a scam are people who werent willing to put in the amount of work that they were clearly warned about in the selection process
Pros
Money, connections, self improvement
Cons
Hard work
