Hello. I'm warning people that Spring Masters Canada ripped me off as an employee. They promise at least $100 a day in cash, but that's not the case. You'll have better luck at a regular job with a fixed rate, not this "get-rich sort-of" job. I got paid $47.75 for 15 hours of work.
I found this company handing out cards at a job fair. There was no interview, we were just told to go to a warehouse in Scarborough on Friday night with a resume and listen to a couple hours of spiel. Unpaid training lasted 3 hours, but the shirt (uniform) was free. Technically it's a Base + Commission job, but as I pointed out they don't pay correctly. Also note if you quit during work you owe them $100. Also note it costs $10 to rent equipment so that $100 drops to $90.
I was told to arrive at work by 8am and there was another 2 hours of spiel before we started work at 10am. The job is walking Door-to-Door dragging a 60lb aerator. You drop off fliers or try to sell your service to the home-owner. We were told to barter for high prices but the service is worth only $25. It might sound easy, but after 10 hours without a break or lunch it is exhausting. No bathrooms either, the supervisor suggested we urinate in public. We were told to be at work at 8am and were allowed to leave at 11pm, which is 15 hours. Somehow this counts as "10 hours of work" by their clock.
Picture 16 guys with backpacks crammed into a tiny van with only 11 seatbelts. There were only 6 vans for 86 workers.
I made 3 sales and a prebooked appointment, so I worked on 4 lawns and 2 of them had backyards. That's pretty good for a first day. In theory I should have earned $100 plus commission on the others. In reality I got $47.75 for 15 hours of work. This means I got paid less than $4 an hour and minimum wage is $9.50.
The top 25 sellers take home great cash prizes, but the other 795 workers get shafted. (ie; If you can earn the company $1200 a day they will give you $300.) The only way to succeed is if you are a superhuman that can work non-stop pushing machines around for 10 hours with suave sales skills and you're able to find and aerate 30 lawns a day. But 99% of people cannot do this. (Also note there is no availability unless you are a top seller. So most people get stuck with 1 or 2 days of work a week.)
From my experience, this is back-breaking slave labour in the sun that rips you off and should be impossible in a 1st world nation like Canada. How has this company existed for 13 years!? It breaks so many laws it's not even funny, they abuse young people who are just trying to save money up for College. It's ridiculous. Don't work here, don't buy their services, avoid Spring Masters Canada because they are crooks. I guarantee it.
