Hard-working job but the salary is worth it, can get stressful at times but take it one day at a time. Working seasonally here was probably the best way to work in this company. Because of the high number of clients they have its hard to keep up with demand.
Long hard hours
This is a family owned business and they take care of their family before their workers. They over work you, under pay you, and do not appreciate their workers. The management talks down to their employees and they are extremely unorganized. Do not expect any sort of respect from this company.
This company has recently fired many people for no reason, other than the reason that they simply can. Many people thought their job was secure and they were doing a great job, only to show up to work one day and get fired on the spot. This is also very counter-productive as they do not have enough employees without firing people. The employees who still have their job are expected to pick up the slack and put in many more hours of work just because of poor management. The company does not provide proper training for students; most of the time when asking detailed questions you will get a "just do whatever" kind of response or the trainer will not know the answer. The salary was good, but this company expects you to do your work absolutely perfectly without giving you enough time at on-site locations, as well as improper training. The disorganization of management within this company is unbelievable; there are never enough cars for the employees to take and the communication is horrible within management. I would recommend working for another pool company if possible.
I started at SPA as an accounting coordinator for the client relations department and was steadily given responsibility for project and consultation billing with associated salary raise and bonus. There is a good scope of growth, the management is very flexible and caring the office has a friendly & safe environment.
If you're looking for a challenge, this is the company for you. Tons of work, tons of unique problems you need to solve, tons of opportunity to expand and move up in positions. Managers are very helpful to newbies and really seem to care about the company as do many other staff. They're reasonable and understanding if you have appointments and can make up for the time later. Company culture is great. We have after work events many times a year and other generous incentives. Hardest part of the job is the learning curb in the beginning when you're not familiar with this particular niche. Most enjoyable is the knowledge gained working here and the company retreats.

If you are looking for an opportunity to grow in your career - this is the place to be! SPA is not for you if you are simply looking for a job where you can coast. The CEO and Management have high expectations of their employees (and of themselves). For those who push themselves to succeed and work hard, they will be rewarded. There are growth opportunities, opportunities for advancement and salary increases. Working here challenges me in positive ways!
Expect a job with little or no training; incompetent management and a complete lack of organization which creates an unsafe work environment. The above conditions, as well as the need to rush work, result in inferior products being sold to clients. All and all, this is a horrid place to work. Their ‘burn them and churn them’ / revolving door culture explains why they are constantly hiring new people.
Few and far between
I used to work here during the summer as a preventative maintenance technician. It was good for lots of hours and overtime work. Working with pools and water features at various condos and apartments in the Greater Toronto Area was an interesting job. However, someone in this position is prone to being overworked. I often worked about 11 hour days (start at around 6:00 AM and get home at about 5:00 PM) with a sporadic on/off schedule. It would be something like 4 days on, 1 day off. Sometimes it was more days on before getting a day off. Things were bad at one point with scheduling, as other summer technicians were quitting rapidly, and I was scheduled 8 days in a row once, given that we were spread thin. I was falling asleep in my car driving back to the office because I had been working so much. We also had no consistent scheduling. The schedule was ever-changing. You often would not know if you were working the next day until about 10 PM or even later on some occasions when management would send you your route. It was always safe to assume you were working the next day, no matter what, haha. We also had delivery drivers quit and we had to be responsible for delivering our own large batches of supplies to our sites. While it was doable, it was not an ideal situation. Deliveries of large amounts of chlorine jugs often ate into time a lot. Management did not do much to help us out with this. I don't know how much management has changed since I stopped working there. Hopefully things have changed for the better. It's a good job for lots of hours, but be warned - plus...
Active work, outdoor work, lots of hours
High turnover rate, overworking, poor management
Spent the whole day working, 8 am- 5pm. Always had constant work to do. I learned to file and shipping details. Enjoyed meeting new people and being in a formal environment.
Long Hours and less pay
