Thanks for this review. We are sad that some cleaning companies pay wages that no one can actually live on.
At Take Time everyone is guaranteed at least $510 per week ($26 520 per year) plus travel, stat, vacation and overtime (if overtime is wanted). Full benefits after 4 months like health, dental, optical, chiro and more. Plus a long list of Winnipeg services are available that our staff can access at 50% off.
We are committed to providing our staff with the best employment opportunity by far in the Winnipeg cleaning industry.
Oh wow!!! You again? Reviews are sometimes posted by competitors trying to discredit us. This review is nonsense.
This company keeps trying to push the idea that Take Time does not pay All time on the job. It is illegal NOT to pay an employee for all time on the job. Manitoba Labour Standards would never allow me to do that!
At Take Time, we offer you choices:
Applicants have the choice to: use their own vehicle or drive a Take Time company vehicle with gas included; work on their own or be paired up; work a full schedule or flexible hours.
We pay full benefits: medical, dental, optical, chiro, massage, and over 60 services discounted to 50% off for our staff of more than 40 people. They love these because it keeps their house hold expenses lower.
I feel that we offer the best employment opportunity in Winnipeg for cleaners. See our video on our website and check out all the details on our Hiring page. All those employees in the recruiting video are still working for us except one who is on maternity leave. Two thirds of our staff have worked for us for Y-E-A-R-S yes years, not weeks or months. Why would they stay if we treat them so badly???
As to the "cheap products", the only products (and there are only a couple) we buy from Dollarama are well known brand names. Most of our cleaning tools and supplies are purchased from our suppliers in Winnipeg, Toronto or the US.
To this unhappy person I offer this advice:
1. pay your staff better...they deserve it! and you can afford it because you charge your customers a lot.
2. We get applicants from other companies ALL THE TIME and they all tell us the same thing...they weren't being paid enough; and/or not enough hours.
3. Selling applicants on "Work for us because we're so much FUN" ??? FUN doesn't pay the bills. less
Good advice regarding hydration. After all, this job is a work out!
Mileage on your car...you can always choose to drive a company vehicle.
Travel times are guaranteed 20 minutes or less and we always verify this OR you have the option to ride in a company vehicle.
Your drive times are 20 mins max but usually around 15mins or under. Sorry that is the best we can do and of course you are paid for your driving times.
