Commission can be stressful
Worst management! Run by a bunch of amateurs who literally think they are better than everyone else. You are not respected and valued one bit. Terribl
Good money if you are in a good territory

Thank you for leaving us a review, we appreciate your honest feedback. To hear that you had a negative experience while working with our Sales team is disappointing and not what we strive for as a company.
I got hired in with about a dozen other people at the same time, as Ledcor was apparently "growing", and needed more sales staff. Within the first month, all but two of us had either quit or been fired, and I didn't even meet my manager until about a month and a half in to the shift. After they were back, processes and routes all changed, and the only other hire from my group was let go or left. After about two months, I was let go as well. They massively overhired, and the only opportunities to expand were given to the senior staff. The sale's staff were the single most disposable working staff I've ever seen at any job I've ever worked.
If you get lucky, there's good money
They don't really know what they're doing

This is a great entry job. You learn a lot in the field and collaboration between clients, colleagues, leadership, and colleagues in different department. There's none-stop challenges pre-sale and post-sale (escalations) that will help you grow, but this is not a long term career. Most colleagues are great people to work with, you see different strength in each person to learn from. Commission is good, but because there's no benefits and insurance, lots of follow-up work to look after clients that's very time consuming and uncontrollable on your end. There's also administrative work you'll need to hand in daily. Those factors can end up comparable to having a 9-5 steady worry free salary job. If you're lucky you have a very on top of things leader, and who can assist and support you actively on escalation and jump on things for you, it really makes your work easier and more focused. However, your manager also makes commission on the side on top of their salary and team sales' commission, sometimes it might take away their energy to focus on the team and team-members to make commission for their own sales, which I think can be a conflict of interest rather than being there to fully commit into support each team members. Overall, it is a fully commission based job, so you'll have up and downs in income. Some paycheck you making A LOT and some you make almost NOTHING. There's no insurance that protects you in this job, hence you'll have to keep seeking options while you push yourself to bring bread and milk home. FYI, company pays you the initial period of - plus...
You get hyped and inspired from "moving" group meetings with your peers and colleagues. They amassed a vibrant, diverse, open-minded, passionate, and over-achieving work culture. There are phenomenal leaders/mentors that are not only phenomenal at their duty, but also genuinely attached to making you value your path towards achieving what ever dreams you have, personally assisting you to your fullest potentials whether for your job or your life, and are mostly mutually respectful intellects. this drove further incentive for me to thrive in my commission based oppurtunity. You definitely gain radical skill-sets as you course through constant mentorship and practical applications, covering from entrepreneurial ideals to mind blowing personal adaptations. Most of all, they have humongous incentives for income, fair room for fast promotions (if you put in work), travel for work (sometimes), great accommodations, and massive and hot market to make money (for sales representatives). It's a super must for people trying to break into the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Don’t know where to begin, it is a Door to door job that they put you in the same areas week after week with little to no management. The manager I was living with was a alcoholic and barely knows what he was doing but puts on a act for the higher ups. Almost every payday would have to email the time and pay and have to fight for the money I made. No structure what so ever.

I relocated for this job, not sure what to expect. I will say, the training is very good. The onboarding, they call it, teaches you about personal development, which was beneficial. However, management does not have a clue what is going on. You will be thrown in to a commission only sales position, and should not expect good money for your first month at least, due to burnt routes, over knocked areas, and in some cases, technical issues which prevent a sale. Be weary of this company, as I have heard many people talking about commissions they rightfully earned, not being given to them. No work/life balance as well. Since you have free accommodations, don't expect to have much free time, which can be overwhelming when you're putting in the hours, but not seeing results.
Knocking door is the job, and the neighbourhoods you knock on are key. Tough market to sell on now that fibre optics has been out for some time. Seems like managers are hired based in relation as many are very unprofessional and hot-headed. Environment filled with plenty of alcohol.
Free rent, live in Vancouver
Low pay, bad management
High expectation of good performers to work harder and cover for the non-performers because leadership doesn’t hold many accountable. Massive amounts of turnover in LTS with so many young sales people fooled to think Ledcor is a top place for sales experience. Treatment of employees is not consistent.
The overall benefits package was good, Vacation time is standard for construction industry, The buildings and environment was generally good
Poor management structure, Very low leadership direction, Favouritism is rampant with little similarities in culture from office to office
- commission based work - low sales can make it hard to make bill payments - no base salary - fun work environment - great coworkers - great for learning tough sales
Ledcor, Has been my home for 7 months and I am very excited to share that I have made tremendous growth in just that short time. I have learnt lot about myself, best practices for customer service, sales, engaging colleagues and building long-lasting relationships with mentors and customers. I am happy to have taken this opportunity, moving from ON was a bit nerve-wracking. However, knowing I had accommodations taken care of and meeting everyone who joined my class at the hotel was relieving. So many new faces, new lessons, challenging scenarios, great team culture. Overall great earning potential - knowing i dictate what my paycheck is and that it reflects on my hard-work is a key motivator for me.
PAID training & accommodations, great team culture, travelling experience & paid costs
Pushing you out of your comfort zone - if you're of the belief that's where you want to stay
As a residential sales person for Ledcor I am going to different communities throughout BC and Alberta to sell TELUS products. In the beginning we I started off with a very good and impressive training from Sales Reps that have grown in the company. There I learned all about objection handling, pitch training, product knowledge, safety and company culture. A great perk of the job is the company housing that is provided. This takes away the stress of paying my rent every month. Another benefit is the sales meetings we organize in the house. This provides me with ongoing learning possibilities. Ledcor Technical Services is a challenging environment where hard work is paid off. So this job is not for everyone, if you put in time and effort the possibilities are endless. The sales team is very fast growing so there are many opportunities for career progression.
Free housing, ongoing training, sales competitions, career opportunities
One of the most unorganized companies I have ever worked for. They told me I was going to be going into Sales which did not happen right away, actually 3 weeks after you arrive in Vancouver head office. Notify you one day before if they are going to move you or fly you out. The company housing is a fantastic perk only when your roommates keep it up to standard. I've moved around to different places and each house I have arrived in has been dirty and messy. Not only that but there aren't alot of women in the company due to the culture being formulated around "bro's". The worst part is that the majority of women in the company are catty and intentionally seek out drama. Thank God I have never been caught in the crossfire but I have seen ridiculous moments between the girls that I thought would call for suspension. Not only that, the managers have such high egos and get paid on salary where they don't put in the effort to support you when you need it. In a sense sales reps are seen as disposable and its a continuous revolving door so not alot of effort is made to helping or supporting them. The only positive thing about the company is the personal development side in training. Other than that they set a facade of standards and ideologies superiors never follow, and if you don't fit in their cookie cutter shape there is something wrong with you.
Company housing and Vehicles
Long hours with minimal support
Came on as a Sales representative, coming from Edmonton, and have learned an incredible amount about not just sales, but personal growth and development which has helped me develop skills i can use almost everyday Extremely grateful for the opportunity to travel, learn, and earn money at the same time! Hardest part of the job was the start. Coming from out of town and working on commission was scary at first, but it really wasn't as hard as i thought because the products i sold were good items that people needed, and i felt fulfilled at the end of the day providing good service like in my previous customer service jobs.A lot of my friends and family actually told me not to take this opportunity in case i didnt make money, but it's not the case. i found that as long as i kept at it everyday, the money was coming in. People really wanted the product we were selling - i just needed the technical know how and Ledcor provided me that which was a bit of a learning curve. But from that the most enjoyable part was the experience and how much i've transformed since day one. I was timid in class, and a bit quiet, but i learned by putting myself out there that i had more to offer, and that i had gained more confidence in myself which helped me make sales. Today - I've been to more cities in BC/AB than i can count, and have met more people than i would've back home, and made more money than i would've working a regular 9-5 job (more than even my siblings who went to Uni).
paid travel, accommodations, company cell phone, performance based compensation which was uncapped
shared accommodations but hey they were free, for Vancouver!
It is a very good job for students that want to explore. They provide all accommodations and they have a very good group of people in charge. The company is very unorganized though and money is less than recruiters mention in interview for everyone.
door to door job is not easy, and it's not for everyone. management is very supportive and they are willing to help. however due to the nature of D2D, the feeling at work is like riding on a roller coaster.
lots to learn
0 sale for a day
I worked here for about 6 months as a sales representative. You spend about 1 hour in group meetings in the morning. It defenitly is a job with good training and motivation. You learn to come out of your shell and develop public speaking skills and such. You earn you pay check so it's all commission. They're honestly poorly managed and it seems the management are just winging as they go along. Very unorganized. The company is great though they take care of their employees. It is not a job for everyone though. I did well, but left because I was sick of the douchey managers and leadership. Also the app the company runs sales on malfunctions a lot.
Free accommodation, great training
Managers, and CEO are douches All commission that is peanuts. No work life balance, you will be only focused on work with no free time.
They help you unlock your potential in not just the company, but also your potential in your everyday life! Everyone is there to build you up. It is an amazing place to work! You meet so many great people that push you to be the best you can be! It never feels like work, but more like a way of life. You get out what you put in with this job. If you strive to be the best, your pay will reflect that, everything you do will reflect that! The people that work here will support you and will give you all the tools to be successful in life, in the company and in your personal life!!
