I enjoyed my time working at Sunshine Building Maintenance. I worked for four years, starting out with only three hours per day then after my first year I became a lead hand. The staff there were very friendly and understanding which made the job more rewarding.

I was hired as a lead hand for Sunshine working at Milton District High School for the evening crew. The hiring process was quick. The crew at school are all nice and helpful. As a lead hand from time to time you have to do problem solving, for example: if their short staffed you have to prioritize the areas that need to be filled. Sunshine sends "foaters" when your short and I've never had a problem with anyone who were sent. We also got paid 40 hours per week during covid for 7 weeks. Later I got a day job, so I left as a "Lead Hand" and now I work a few times a week as a floater. Overall good experience.

I have worked for Sunshine Building Maintenance for three years now as a floater. It's a great casual job if you need flexible hours. I'm a busy mother of two, so this job allows me to work around my schedule at home.n
Pros
Great casual job, flexible hours, great staff
Cons
No benefits

Perfect place for a mom to work! I have been working there just over 3 years after my second baby. Working for Sunshine allowed me to be home for my kids during the day and not have to worry about daycare costs. When dad got home I would go to work! I was a floater so that allowed me to work as often or as little as needed around my home schedule! The work itself was fairly easy - time management was key

Worst company in Canada to work for. I would never recommend working at this company to my worst enemies. They give only lead hands benefits and not their regular cleaners. They are constantly understaffed and expect you to fill up to 4 full time positions in one night. They'll cut 15 mins off your pay if you punch out a minute before your shift. The managers are ruthless and blame you for other peoples mistakes just to force you to fix it. They never repair their equipment most of there stuff is old and falling apart not to mention dangerous. They pay 15-16 per hour and expect work worth $25/hr. No room for advancement and no overtime. Stay away very poor company to work for.
Pros
Absolutely none, from the time you get hired to when you get fired.
Cons
Anything and everything

At Sunshine, we pride ourselves in knowing we have so many long term employees. It is the employee that makes us what we are….It saddens us that you feel this way about a company that prides itself in having a positive work environment, while providing fair compensation, referral bonus’s, gift cards to acknowledge hard work, and many other benefits. Our Human Resource Department would love the opportunity to discuss your concerns further. We can always be reached at 905-335-2020

The Job itself is fairly easy (as long as you have a good supervisor to teach you) but management makes it VERY difficult, they are always right behind you telling you what you're doing wrong, Never what you're doing right, You do not get ANY breaks what so ever, The communication barrier is not handled with in a professional way what so ever. The job pays $15 dollars a hour and he expects work worth of $25 dollar/hr. Consistently pushing you beyond your limits with little to no reward. Overall I had a TERRIBLE experience with this company and If you can, seek a position elsewhere.
Pros
You can wear headphones
Cons
Slow, Management sucks at their job, No communication.

Pretty simple job, straight forward and you’re not constantly being watched over. Positive environment and friendly staff at all the school locations I’ve been to. There are issues with communication within management, it seems like you never get the same answer when asking the same question to different staff within management. Also issues with communication between management and on-site staff, waiting anywhere from hours to days for a response. I believe if they fix the communication issues, and offer higher pay and/or benefits, even overtime pay, they would get a lot more productivity out of their employees and have a lower turnover rate.
Pros
Positive work environment, friendly school staff
Cons
No benefits, poor management, often short staffed, no overtime, pay could be better, communication issues

Working with the region was one of the weirdest job experiences in my life. One of my fellow Student workers played a particular role in reuining my experience. Wasting time and money was the norm, more office drama than house of cards.
Pros
easy
Cons
depressing

I worked for Sunshine for about a year. Working within the school environment with the sunshine cleaners was great and I have no complaints on that front. However any time you need support from management they are not willing to step up and assist. HR at Sunshine quite frankly lacks a backbone and all of upper management seems to struggle with stepping up on behalf of their employees when they should have their backs in situation with clients (especially Halton Board).
Pros
Self paced, repeative work
Cons
Upper management, no support

We wish we could have sat down and discussed your situation further. It appears you liked the school environment and staff around you. With further conversation, you might still be a
Sunshine employee working for a company that goes the mile to create a positive company culture. The Human Resource Dept. would like it if you reached out to them to discuss this further. We can be reached at 905-335-2020
