What does working here look like?
We always start the season with a full week of offsite training where we bring in suppliers, as well as give our experienced techs time to share some of their own Industry-leading product knowledge. The training doesn’t stop here; our comprehensive training and mentorship programs ensure our new team members are supported, well trained, and set up for success. When our new team members are ready, we are happy to cover the cost as they become certified Irrigation Technicians, and we strengthen our team.
Our Service team works Monday to Friday with no overnight required. We provide brand new fully stocked service vehicles, uniform provided, tool allowance, paid wellness days, and a full office support team. We enjoy social events throughout the year including a company breakfast, bbq, golf tournament, and company-planned family days!
What else? How about competitive wages ($18-$25hr), group benefits, monthly, and annual performance-based bonuses, RRSP matching, health, and wellness programs. During 3 months over the winter, we encourage our team to rest, have some me time, spend time with family, or learn a new hobby! While Blue Jay tops up Seasonal EI payments. You could even use one of your paid volunteer days during this time, to give back to your community?
