Active and fast-paced environment. My windows at home are as clean as ever. Great chance to meet and talk with people if you are a social person. Wearing the kilt can be seen as a bonus or not, certainly is a conversation starter. Management was AWFUL.

A day at Men in kilts is what you make it. Your days are never the same and always include a new challenge. For this job you will need to have good customer service and there is alot of long days in the summer.

As a team of two, we went from house to house, schools, parking lots to remove snow. I learnt to use snowblowers, leaf blowers and got to know the town.

The job is (unsurprisingly) very physically involved. You should expect to be on your feet and moving around, carrying ladders pretty much all day. Depending on what you're doing, your hours are also likely to be long. Typically, my work hours would be between 8:00 AM to 4:00-5:00 PM. You do get used to being active all day and it's good for the body, though the risk of injury is higher than other jobs (there are rules and countermeasures in place to reduce or prevent injury). This is a natural part of the job.

New employees are trained well in actually doing the job, as well as safety. Initial training lasts for two weeks, and after that you are paired up with a senior technician, so there's ample room for learning and improvement. It was said that every day is a new challenge, and this is definitely true; however, you've got help to get you through it.


The company also likes to have small company events to keep things from stagnating, and the people are great to work with. Everyone was friendly, fun, easy to get along with, and understanding.


The biggest downside is that the job was commission-based (except for the first month, which is hourly). For some people, this could be a problem, but the upside is that it encourages you to work well, and your paycheck will immediately improve as you get better at the job, and when you first start out, it won't be a big cheque, but it is possible to make big bank as you get better.


You do receive full benefits after 3 months, which I'd take over a high paying job without benefits.


I'd love to return in the future, as

Points positifs
Great people, physically active
Points négatifs
Commission-based pay, long (sometimes difficult) days

As a tech, you will be hustling to ensure that work is complete. In order to make money during the busy summer months, you need to be fast paced and be consistent.
Be prepared to work long hours during the summer months and shorter hours in the winter (almost part time hours.

What you make in the summer, bank some money away for the winter months. Winter will see your income cut in half.
Points positifs
Profit sharing
Points négatifs
long hours, physically demanding

I got to have some fun working in a kilt, yes you where a kilt. The day starts meeting somewhere in town around 8am, you do a list of jobs put in your schedule and your done. Jobs range from window cleaning a tiny house for 30 mins to spending a entire day at on place doing gutters, windows and cleaning the siding. Pay is decent. They advertise 18 dollars an hour but that is not the truth. After your training period your wage goes down to 15 and you can earn production after that. Two of the biggest set backs for me was: The hours are very unreliable. You know that you start around 8 every day, but you have no idea what time your getting home until part way through that day. Second, Men in Kilt believes that they can give you work and not pay you for it. Let me explain. Once I became a lead tech they expected me to wash towels and log both mine and my coworker hours and production after the day, and they did not pay me for my time. Though it is not a huge time sucker, a company that wants you to work for free is a hard company to work for.
Points positifs
Good Pay, Unique Experience
Points négatifs
Unreliable Hours

Who knew putting on a kilt everyday would be so rewarding? Men In Kilts Calgary is a great team with genuine management and employees. The leadership team is amazing at recognizing and supporting everyone-quite remarkable in an organization this size.

There is a good growth culture where everyone can function almost as their own business unit(the more you put in, the more rewarding it is, the higher you can go etc). Yet you never feel isolated because everyone is working together to mutually advance. I think this plus respect for employees and work/life balance makes execution of projects very good. The market in Southern AB recognizes us as the best!


It's a phenomenal business case study in action every day. In a difficult sector with low margins and high turnover on all fronts, MIK has succeeded in achieving solidity, engaged staff and continuous improvement.
Points positifs
amazing brand recognition, work/life balance, great team and leaders
Points négatifs
winter is tough(no layoffs but snow clearing is not as profitable as building cleaning)

I worked there for 6 months and only left because I left Alberta! I loved working with them! They treat their employees with utmost respect and treat them like family rather than "Employee numbers"!

I really love their upbeat nature, high positive attitude and atmosphere when learning/advancing in the company!


I would highly recommend anyone work for them - so long as they aren't afraid of heights! lol


If I ever return to Alberta, I would definitely apply to get my job back!
Points positifs
Company vehicles/gas card once earned, health benefits after probation period, very friendly staff
Points négatifs
Paid commission rather than hourly so if you are slow or traffic is bad, you make less. You have to plan your routes carefully in order to have less travel time.

I feel like I gush about my job every single day; this is something I have never experienced before and hold close to my heart. I have never felt more supported, encouraged, trusted and excited about a position in my life. The owners and management practice what they preach in regard to their core values and welcome you into a company culture that truly does feel like a family. There is genuine sincerity when they say that they want to see you grow with the company. My entire experience has been and continues to be one of the most unique and valuable thus far. I can’t wait to see what the future holds with Men in Kilts.
Points positifs
Get to work with amazing people
Points négatifs
I honestly can't think of one thing

Started in this company 3 years ago with only few ideas in mind what to expect, all I know is they wear kilt and clean windows. But, beyond my expectation this company has lot to offer professionally and personally. Management is always been great to support me since the first day I started working in this company, awesome and fun colleagues and everyday is a different challenges, but most of all I love the attentions and the smiles we bring to the world.

I have worked for Men In Kilts for 10 years and it's been an amazing experience so far. I've grown, along with the company.

Everyday presents a challenge, which is what keeps the job interesting. Management has been great through out the years, very supportive, and definitely do not treat you like a number, but like an individual.


Everyone is very dedicated, and very awesome to work with. Working with a bunch of individuals that are of like mind, makes work enjoyable, and gives you a sense of accomplishment.

I have worked for Men In Kilts for 15+ years and it's been an amazing experience so far. I've grown, just as much as the company has.

This is a company that has done a fantastic job promoting from within and branching out across North America. The brand is fun and friendly and it's amazing the interactions you have just simply walking around in a kilt.


The work is challenging but you get back what you put in. There is plenty of support and training to help you get to where you want.


The people hired are exceptional, as you need to be while wearing a kilt.
Points positifs
People who are passionate, focused on integrity, gumption and growth.
Points négatifs
Not many

My job is extremely busy but that's partly why I love my job!

A typical day at work involves lots of emails, communication, teamwork, planning, and implementation. I thrive in a fast paced environment.


I enjoy all the work I do and find it interesting, challenging and satisfactory.


The marketing team and all the employees in Franchise Services are exceptional, hardworking and supportive.


My boss is also supportive, realistic, intelligent and assists me in getting the job done.


I learn new things every day and enjoy working with people from all over North America.
Points positifs
An amazing brand with a lot of potential
Points négatifs
A lot of work to do!

It's one thing to be hired for the responsibilities you are excepted to accomplish. It's another to be put into the fire to accomplish tasks that are completely out of your wheel house. This is a company with small dreams and a vision that is unrealistic. The business plan and the amount of money poured into the growth of the operation is miscalculated, spending 10% on marketing to achieve an overall growth of 12.8%. Overhead extremely high and the services are to vast to condense into a profitable Franchise.
Points positifs
Good marketing.
Points négatifs
Poor software

Men In Kilts is an amazing place to work at. Everybody knows each other and there is a great mix of fun and professionalism. The management team is always approachable and encouraging. Everyone has great work ethic and sense of personal responsibility for their role and teamwork, right from the technicians to the owner. I love the fact that they are supportive of local communities and charities and all the events that come along with the role. People go out of their way to help out a co-worker. When you work with people that genuinely enjoy their job,take pride in their work and wearKilts while at it, it's hard not to love your job!

Incredible company to work for, I doubt there is a single person on this team who has ever been made to feel like just a "number". Management is encouraging, honest, fair, and fun.
Men In Kilts is a community of like-minded, amazing people who work hard and have a positive attitude - I love being a part of this team!
