You make a base salary here which is not much, but make more if your production rate is high. The problem with this system is the amount of extras they require you to do. I have worked for hourly companies that didn't require the amount of extra stuff to do on top of applications. They want you to knock on EVERY customers door when you complete the service. Why? I assume just to up sell services and repeatedly tell them about the referral program. In a province where where Fiesta is the only usable weed control you only here about the weeds from customers ALL DAY. Thats one example of many extras you have to do on top of services. Equipment also makes it harder to make production pay. No backpack sprayers and hand crank hose reels really make it take longer to do your job. The only company in the area that uses hand crank reels. Fertilizer and seed can get wet in the back of the truck because they have no dry storage area on there trucks, just another headache when your spreader gets plugged.
Overall the pay scale makes this job exclusive to high school/college students who will work one season you have to work yourself to death to make a decent pay where other companies have kept techs for long term because there pay system is much more sound.

You have absolutely no support from supposed supervisors. It definitely does involve cold calling when mostly everyone says that they did not give their info to us. I lasted 1 week and I am made of strong stuff and have done sales. STAY AWAY IF YOU VALUE YOUR SELF WORTH.

Does not treat employees properly, continuous reduced payment that is never compensated, they deduct money for their uniform and make you sign a contract saying they’ll compensate you if you’re terminated or you quit, but you never see the money, they also ignore you when you ask them about where your rightful pay is and when it’s coming, changes in wages, and even has harassment in the workplace! Do not work for this company or purchase anything from this company unless you want to be wronged

The only reason why I applied here was because the salary was a little over average where I live. Everyone kept telling me not to work there, and I should have listened to them. I quit exactly one week in. They expect you to work in EVERY weather condition, even if it’s -25 outside which I’m pretty sure is illegal. Car and bathroom smells like straight up doodoo. The supervisor insults, belittles and micromanaged everything, all while being passive aggressive at the same time. They claim that making good sales make practice, but already less than a week in the job they threaten to fire you due to not reaching the incredibly unrealistic amount of sales per hour AND day. Please, for the love of Christ, spare yourself the trouble of working here. I’m saying this so you won’t have the endure the amount of suffering I went through... and also because this company is just doodoo overall.

Company was not overly great to work for, they would overload you with work and on the hottest days I would get heat stroke and be told to stay out until all my jobs were completed.

This place is probably the best place I've ever worked. Management is great, understanding when able to be but will crack down on you when necessary. The only downside is that I never had enough hours after my initial start month, and despite me saying my ideal hour range was 25-35/week, I ended up with less than 15 most weeks. Despite that, I had a blast, everyone working there is extremely friendly and high energy. Morale is great. The work itself can be tedious, but the freedom of not having a script on the phone aside from the opening is wonderful. The training is thorough and I had no problems getting started.

Simple job yet management tend to not understand their own reputation and how people think. A manager takes you and a handful of others to different cities and areas, drops you off with a partner, where you then must go door to door, asking people if they want to receive a call from the call center department. Most people have a negative opinion of the company due to being contacted non-stop despite being asked to stop, or agreeing to the offer given to them. You are expected to receive a specific amount of signatures stating they are willing to receive a call, and if you don't meet that goal, you will be fired.

Very good pay. Washrooms are not accessible as you have to find restaurants or stores to let you in and it slows you down. Management was very understanding but strict when needed. The employees were funny and always were trying to help out. The hardest part of the job for me, was finding ways to accommodate my height (5'0). I had to constantly find ways to reach the latches on the gates and it was not only challenging but time consuming. The best part about working at Weedman was the freedom of being your own boss and determining yourself how much money you want to make for that day. Although there was a quota, management was understanding to temperature and watched the forecast regularly to make sure the weather made it capable to finish your job.

In the real world, you're always going to end up working for a certain company that may or may not be your cup of tea, but it will teach you alot about life, and making money the honest way.
However, me being some 18 year old with only partial experience prior to working for this company, suddenly and quickly changed into being a good salesman JUST FROM WORKING FOR THIS COMPANY.


You learn about meeting quotas, sales pitching, the psychology of sales, meeting strangers and trying to befriend them for a quick minute, and eventually helping the business grow through leads.


Weed Man here in Windsor may have had a troubled past, but it really cleaned up its act, and nowadays, the majority of Windsorites actually don't think Weed Man is a bad company anymore. It's all about the effort that you put into your job and making the best of it, instead of wasting it hopelessly.


Sometimes, you may encounter some strange people who will ask you for a gram of weed, but then again, there's other times when you knock on the door and they'd be thrilled to become a part of Weed Man's impressing group of lawn care professionals that will turn a random person's cruddy lawn into the best on the block.


If you're still in High School or College/University, and you want a job that gives you some good benefits, then you should definitely apply.
Points positifs
Immediate response from supervisors, Good manager, Good supervisors, you end up learning alot about sales, giving you alot of experience along the way. Sometimes, the quick stop at a convenience store.
Points négatifs
Certain shifts may not always help you reach your quota all the time.

I was told when I began that there would be no cold calling, which definitely was not true as the campaign you start on is cold calling or calling people that do not want to be contacted.
Points positifs
Work from home

The system in place to encourage employees to make more money has to do with speed and results in employers rushing their work and therefore a plethora of customer complaints.
Points positifs
fun coworkers
Points négatifs
long hours and minimal pay unless you take no pride in your work.

Do not recommend working here. Working in all weather conditions is a requirement that they take very seriously and they will not care about you no matter how cold it is. They will send you home if they called in too many employees and not pay you which is illegal, and if you ask they will call you a liar and act like nothing happened. Boss is delusional.
Points positifs
Free food once in a while. They pay you for the drive to the area.
Points négatifs
Unprofessional.

I applied to be a Lawn Care Tech, they pulled me in for a laughable orientation and presented 4 grown men with a door knocking gig. Also the biggest kicker, is that its advertised for 16 - you get there then they tell you they pay 14... Guy pulled me outside and said just between you and I you'll get 16. So what is it? Lawn care or doorknocking? 14 or 16?

I am really happy with Weed man at a service level. Their techs are really friendly and they do a great job. My only complaint is that they do have shifts during the winter and it's can get really cold and you're outside for a long period of time, Take away that and I would give them five stars.
Points positifs
Co-workers\Managers were very nice.
Points négatifs
Working in the cold and in the dark especially during winter.

My friend and I were 14 and we were left outside in the middle of winter, in the dark, having to go to doors alone and knock on the doors of strangers.
