This is high racially biasd work place, group of people controling the B.C. brunch and pushing other people to quit or fired, these people has no mercy for the company assets or growth.

Teamwork with committed people
Housekeeper (Ancien employé) –  Commercial stores5 novembre 2019
In this company I had some opportunities to work in some business rooms, meet people and learn from them.

In the company many job offers were night and diversified hours. As I have 3 young children, so the times were not adequate.

Horrible
manager (Ancien employé) –  Canada15 octobre 2019
Without a question one of the worst companies to work for.
Horrible management at all levels. Low pay with 24/7 expectations. Poor upper management including hr.

Poor compensation

Typical day would be driving around to various sites to follow up with store management to ensure cleaning was up to the right standards. Unfortunately budgets made by upper management were unattainable and most new subcontractors start cutting corners and hiring illegal workers because legally they are not able to clean for below minimum wage. This is known by upper management but brushed under the rug. Management is not interested in knowing how to improve culture and employee business but instead throw unattainable deadlines with again low compensation.

Culture is good for a certain time period but eventually this leaves.

Hardest part of the job was staying motivated and to see people cleaning with very low pay and dealing with the daily complaints from cleaners or store managers.

Not a particularly a great ethical company to work for.
Accounts Operations Manager (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB13 juillet 2019
Self serving corporate environment with senior manage steeped in old school style management structure.
While it is family owned and operated company not particularly open to innovative methods of the new century.
Middle management are supposed to shoulder the bulk of customers requests at the shortest notice.
New ideas of janitorial operations are hardly welcome unless one is ready to sacrifice his or her personal integrity.
Points positifs
End of year customers appreciation get toegether with all customers.
Points négatifs
Yes of course long hours. Few benefits for management cadre.

Overall it is good
Account Manager (Employé actuel) –  Delta, BC26 mai 2019
The cleaning job is challenging, you have to respond to customers complaints. Scandi is relatively okay if you are a worker is smart. Sometimes there is pressure from management if there any problem, although you are not responsible for the problem.
Points positifs
flexibility of work time

Bad Management, Bad Culture
Employee (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB20 février 2019
Working at Scandinavian Building Services was certainly an experience. The management was difficult, picky to the extreme, unavailable most of the time, and liked to micromanage. I wasn't able to do hardly anything with my position because I had to wait and wait and wait for approvals I never received. They also like to tell you their employees are family, but that's a bunch of bull. In my short time there, employees either quit or were fired almost every week. My replacement didn't even last three months. I do not recommend working for this company.
Points positifs
Nothing

The overall experience of working with this company was enjoyable
Seasonal cleaner (Employé actuel) –  Vancouver, BC16 juin 2018
Working for this company had taught me a lot about customer service and working to others expectations not just mine. The crew I worked with was amazing and we grew a lot over the time we were complete strangers then we grew into a family. The only thing I was not satisfied about was the hours. I would be lucky to get even one shift in a week. Besides that it was a great job.
Points positifs
Pick up and drop off at home
Points négatifs
Rarely any hours and hours were unexpected

Always busy
Custodian (Ancien employé) –  Hamilton, ON19 avril 2018
You need sanitation skills and detailing skills for this type of job. Very easy when you know what to do and what to look for while management also helps out when needed.

Not enough hours
Cleaner/Housekeeper (Employé actuel) –  Kitchener, ON24 juillet 2017
Not enough hours, cut your shifts without notice. New people start all the time and get your shifts but your hours never get increased when they leave.

You are expected to devote your life to this company
Operations Manager (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB3 janvier 2017
Work life balance means nothing to this company. You are literally expected to work 24/7 and get paid a measly salary. On paper, it looks like you are working a Mon-Fri 9-5 job. But in reality, you are expected to work overtime and go in early to finish work, go in to client's site during evenings/nights and weekends whenever issues arises, and literally be on-call 24/7. You do not get banked hours or extra pay for all the extra hours worked with their pathetic excuse that you are a salary worker. You are also expected to use your personal vehicle for site visits and with the pathetic vehicle allowance they provide barely even cover the cost of fuel, let alone the other expenses incurred including maintenance, insurance, wear and tear, and car payment.

High Turnover, lack of transparency, untrustworthy
Employee (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB3 octobre 2016
Some co-workers are great - but the culture is slam those that are not there to defend yourself.

Never trust management / HR isn't there to help you - there is no ethics

Management is open to yell at anyone at any time for things not in one's control

HIGH, HIGH, HIGH turnover
Points positifs
Beer for hardwork

Training is great and being able to apply it on a daily basis to assure customer satisfaction
Operations Manager (Employé actuel) –  Saskatchewan23 juillet 2014
Everyday is a challenge on various situations. It is on how I deal and handle those challenges that becomes a motivation. Keeping a tight and firm schedule, processing and implementing skills to provide quality work.

Not being able to acknowledge that learning is an everyday process and not being able to apply what you've learned is the hardest part of the job. You need to have an open mind and a positive attitude always.

Being able to address, satisfy and come through with the clients needs and wants is enjoyable but being able to have your team complete those things and learn those things for customer satisfaction is more enjoyable.
