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.
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, asplus... the people I worked with were great and the job kept me physically active (you won't require a gym membership anymore!), so shower after work, not before. Also, the uniforms are great.moins
Great people, physically active
Commission-based pay, long (sometimes difficult) days
