The next day after answering a few simple questions like: Do you like flying all over Canada getting hotels and food costs covered by our company while you work for us. Naturally being a young guy, ambitious and bright eyed I thought yeah hey, I could do that! These folks will train me and fly me around, pay for my business expenses and make my life wonderful. But I got suckered! HARD.
My very first day, I walked up the inviting looking stairs into what looked like an Ikea furnished crack den. The next thing I knew I was off to the "field" with a portfolio of pictures of starved children in third world countries.
Proceeding my departure from the rough side of Downtown, I was carted into the upstanding middle class side of town with a few guys who looked and sounded about 10 steps from homeless smelling of last nights 26.oz. Now we get into the profit side of things...You go door to door with your portfolio of 3rd World children pitying or "pitching" there cases (sounding like you know what living there is like) to the people the company thinks has money in nice nieghborhoods. Sounds good right? The company makes the money by taking some off the cash or cheque you get from the sponser and skims a little off the top before it actually gets a chance to get to the kids. If this sounds good to you and you are really hurting for a job, GUARANTEED you will be hired if you go in there with a button up t-shirt from Zellers.
As far as the flying side of things go...Everybody piles into a company minivan and you sleep on the floor of ONE hotel room as your senior co-workers get the beds. You pay for your own food and perhaps some of the hotel room depending on if its a Super 8 drive in or a dive in the slums of wherever you go. No planes, jets, trains or even buses involved. You may even get the opportunity to be a passenger in a vehicle opporated by a driver with a suspended or even no license. That is also swept under the rug so dont even worry about it. No big deal. Anyway, if you're a good liar you can make some good coin but you may have a guilty concience at the end of the day taking money for starving kids.
To add on to my personal experience, there may be some fellas waiting for one of your co-workers to beat or threaten death, because he had slept with one of their girlfriends also employed by this stellar company.
Enjoy Ace1, they are a SUPER employer with a really nice website.
