    I worked at Canadian Property Stars full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get a good story to tell your kids/grandkids when they ask you about your worst job

    Motivation to never work a job like this again

    Cons

    Work 14-16 hour days for disgusting pay (I worked 14 hour day to make 17$)

    Deceit, lies, fake positive reviews of company

    They drive you out far away where you can't easily get home

    Feel like a prisoner or a slave

    Forced to lug around 150lb aerator all day in the hot sun, have to ask people to go into their homes if you need to use washroom

    No benefits, no base wage, terrible treatment

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to the public

    Pros

    Amazing team atmosphere, ability to work outside and most importantly get paid what you are worth. I like the ability to make more the harder I work. I'm not a fan of hourly positions where you get paid the same amount as the guy slacking off all day. This job gives me the opportunity to make more then I could at any other seasonal position.

    Cons

    The hours are very long and weather is unpredictable, so sometimes it gets pretty wet/cold. You definitely need to come to work prepared for the elements.

    Pros

    Absolutely none. I've worked many labour jobs, this company is just the worst.

    Cons

    I remember back in the orientation the first thing they tried to do was SELL us a copy of the CEO's book. The environment is incredibly cult-like. They try to brainwash you constantly with how much money you could potentially make. In reality you are treated like crap by the management staff and get paid a significantly small amount at the end of the day depending. One time I made it to the lucky 3 and made $250. Another time I made $0 the whole day.

    Oh did I say management staff? I meant sales staff. The 'management staff' are paid to sell you this job. It all feels like a scheme, for the sake of your own dignity avoid this company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to sell us that book, I seriously cant get over that.

    Pros

    Amazing money if you work hard and are couchable everyday. Outdoor everyday. Fantastic workout and pay based on how hard you work daily. During aeration you get paid cash daily

    Cons

    Hard work if your lazy and dont want to try. COMPLETELY commission based so if you slack of you dont pay YOURSELF well enough. Extremely energetic people are the only ones that pay themself daily during aeration PROPERLY. Not for the lazy hourly wage seeking type individuals

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up the amazing work you do everyday. Dont ever listen to the trash talking lazy people whom want to just do prebook houses and quit for the day. Stay positive and inspirational and keep up the amazing work your doing everyday already. Never stop inspiring and molding all new contractors into the best workers on the planet

    I have been working at Canadian Property Stars full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Positive like minded staff
    -Great way to SAVE money
    -Learn how to communicate with other humans (not text them!!)
    -Get in good SHAPE

    This is the only job I have had that I can honestly say has positively changed my life and I have had many (funeral home, CSIS Canada, Bars/Restaurants, Ski Hills, Hotels, Canadian tire, Gas Station, Landscaping, Painting, Solar Farm electrical foreman and many more..)
    I have never been happy to wake up and go to work before having this job. This is my 6th year with the company and its amazing to watch random people from all walks of life come to this job and change their outlook on lives. Best Sales/Property Maintance company in the world. Hands down, 100%!! Oh and the owner Ben Stewart is a complete Legend.

    Cons

    -Long hours may be cons to some. (not me)
    uhhhh yeah thats it?!
    -Sometimes its cold and people only bring t-shirts. Yeah that sucks..

    Pros

    Great place, Amazing Environment, Extreamly Positive, Amazing Money, Daily Bonus's... you know i dont know what to tell you Canadian property stars is a great place to work but only if you think of life as a sport you run all day cut across lawns no long term relationships with home owners and follow the system you will make 300-800$ daily if your gonna laze around being a potato u wont make anything

    Cons

    Hard work, most people give up because they dont want to try, most people think its a scam because they cant work hard enough to make money... lets be real you work hard you make money you dont work hard you will NOT make money

    Advice to Management

    nothing,Ben Stewart and his team of highly trained staff are doing great they work hard appreciate their staff most of the managers will go out of their way to help a worker if they can, every manager will make sure their workers are making money and i love that
