I started working at breakaway in the early part of 2017, because I needed a second job, to pay off some credit card bills and my car payments. When I first applied there, I found the woman to be very friendly and helpful.
Not soon after applying they found me a job to fit my full-time day job schedule. I ended up working there for 6 months, and this allowed me to pay off all my outstanding bills.

I still work there to this day part, and there always seems to be work readily available when I need it.

This is one of the better job agencies, as you get to know the woman working there personally.
Points positifs
work always available
Points négatifs
none so far

Bad company to deal with. As others have mentioned, they use sneaky tactics to collect your information and have you jump through hoops with promises of good employment only to say "oops sorry we have this other job way below your standards and pay expectations though."

Advertise 18 an hr jobs and surprisingly when you call or go in, the position has been filled. You end up getting a 16 an hr if ur lucky. Best part is when they make you feel as if you depend on them more than anything else, when they solely exist on your paycheck. It's a 2 way street. And they can stuff their bull of getting hired on by companies, if that happened they wouldn't have anyone to make them money. Take advantage of people because of desperation. In general, they are scavengers, make sure you research an agency you want to work for. STAY AWAY FROM BREAKAWAY, you have been warned.
Points positifs
Turn them down for a shift when they are desperate, taste their own medicine.
Points négatifs
They exist

Working with employees to bill transportation companies in order to receive money owed to the company I worked for. Typed on the AS400 for the transportation companies and Oliver Lumber Company that I worked 21 years for doing accounts payable/receivable/invoicing and other jobs as well as training. The hardest part of the job was getting everything done on time. The most enjoyable part of the job was coercing with the employees and being able to have lunch in a lunch room.
Points positifs
There was free lunches.
Points négatifs
Sometimes there were long hours.

Even with years of experience under my belt in Transportation, to the point that got the Manager to deal with my application himself... After a couple interviews, the only thing that I got was "Salesman speech" and no job! Full BS promises that makes you think that you'll be getting a job next couple days and never got one from them! Even with the company owner being the manager! bragging himself about their experience in providing jobs to people! Basically... Lots of talk and lots of fouling people around! Guess what... I got other recruiter from KAS HR and I'm working already in a matter of less than a week!
Points positifs
None
Points négatifs
Salesman speeches promising you a job that you'll never have it!

You do the work and we get part of the money that you earned doing the work in mostly temporary positions with little prospects of being hired on or benefits. Even then these companies that use parasitical agencies like breakaway charge the employer an arm and a leg if they want to hire you.


They are the problem for people working today and not a solution
Points positifs
Umm it is work
Points négatifs
You work, they do nothing and make money off of your work

Breakaway sent me for an inventory position as a machine operator @ $16 per hour.
Found a different agency who wanted to send me to the same company as the janitor @ $16.60 per hour.


Id be surprised to learn that the company pays agencies more for a janitor than an inventory control machine operator position.


Breakaway will pay you as little as possible.

The ladies at Breakaway Staffing are very friendly and polite and will go out of their way to make sure they find you a job.

I have been working in an administrative role through them for just over 3 years now and they are always available to me if I need them and they always pay me on time. I have worked with another agency in the past where this was not the case so I was hesitant to find work using an agency but Breakaway has been great.


They found me a job quickly and everyone in the office was helpful and polite. I have recommended this agency to my family and friends and would recommend it to anyone looking for work in Mississauga.

Breakaway was a great place to find work. They found me a steady job paying over minimum wage. When I went in to register everyone was very friendly. They remember me whenever I drop by their office which I think is really great. I've never had a problem with them since I started working for them and I like the job I have. I have recommended them to a few of my friends who have also found work through Breakaway.
Points positifs
very friendly, considerate, found me a job fast

A typical day at work takes place in a warehouse setting from 7:30 am till 4:00 pm. Workers are expected to package and unpack a variety of products or label and inspect products. The instructions are minor, you are given instructions for a task and will perform that task for the rest of your shift. The work is very repetitive and sometimes requires heavy lifting. Co-workers are friendly but are encouraged to refrain from socializing excessively. The hardest part of the job is the repetitiveness and the simplicity of the tasks. As well the location of the warehouses vary and commuting may be difficult. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting a behind the scenes look at how the different mainly food related products are handled before they are shipped to stores. The management within the warehouses are not much help, the management within Breakaway are very friendly and helpful, but I found unless you sternly express your discomforts or concerns with jobs and salaries your requests will be overlooked. Overall the job is a great learning experience to see how different items are processed, as well as getting to know all the different people which help build upon communication skills.
Points positifs
little to no effort required
Points négatifs
repetitive, cold, not challenging, unstable hours

A friend told me about Breakaway Staffing Solutions while I was currently working as a Sales Rep for another company. My friend knew the owner of Breakaway and told me that their agency often had Sales Rep positions available that paid well. I kept my eye out and when I saw that they had a position available I went in and had an interview. The position was similar to the work I had been doing but paid quite a bit more. The job was in my area so I thought it would be worth it to interview. In the end I got the job and have been working for the company ever since!

The whole process was very smooth and the transition between jobs was seamless. I'm sure my old employer was sad to see me go but on-ward and upward to bigger and better things!


I am very happy with my experience at Breakaway and would have no problem recommending it to my friends.
Points positifs
easy process

I started working for Breakaway when I finished high school. It has been a great way to earn extra money while I decide what I want to do. All of the jobs they've sent me to so far have been really easy and I've worked with good people. The job that I have is general labour and I call in each day and get work for the next day. It's a pretty good system, they've always had work for me when I call.
Points positifs
always get work

I have been with Breakaway a long time. I came to them in 2010 and they helped me find a data entry job (paying decent money for the time). Since then I have gained the experience and have be placed in an OS&D role with a larger Transport company. I have always had a very pleasant experience any time I have dealt with the ladies at Breakaway and they always went above and beyond to find me a job that fit my skills.
Points positifs
great people, placed in good job

I was with a different agency about a year ago and they were the worst, so i left and found Breakaway through a friend. They found me a full time job as a forklift operator. They were always friendly and nice when I went into their office, and it seemed like they were trying really hard to find me a job. The job they found me has been good so far and pays pretty decent. I am overall really happy with Breakaway, i've had a much better experience with this agency.
Points positifs

the staff at Breakaway Staffing was incredibly friendly and helpful, while working this them I have always felt that they were always working to make sure I succeeded and made it to the job that I wanted. While applying for jobs through Breakaway Staffing I worked mainly with Sharon, she was very helpful, nice and definitely someone I could count on to get me to job I want. Although the application process can take a long time they made sure that I was comfortably the whole time by offering me snacks and drinks. overall I would recommend Breakaway Staffing to anyone looking to apply through them for a job.
Points positifs
friendly, helpful
Points négatifs
long application process

i am a current employee with Breakaway and have had nothing but good experiences with them. They were delightful from the minute i walked through the door.

They placed me with a good company and i like the work and the people.


My recruiter at Breakaway made sure i knew everything i needed to know going into the job so i was prepared to start,which was really soon after my interview with them.


i have recommended this agency to my friends and family and I would go back again.

Dont even try with this company. My contact Stephanie never bothered to get back to me when i left messeges for her, to be honest its been almost a year. The job i did get lasted only a month when i was promised a long term position. I have tried to call and get in touch with someone who can help me but no luck. This company is very unprofessional.
Points positifs
none
Points négatifs
not being able to talk to your contact or no returned calls.
