Yea that is VERY SHADY! I don't know how they get away with doing people like this. I hope they have a conscious and pay her. She worked for only a month but that's not including the training.

Thumbs down

I too went as far as I could with this company.

So much went on I would have to write a short novel, but let me try to shorten this up.

I agreed to $500 a month because there was promise of advancement both in wage and growth. One poster is also correct in, there is no contract, just "their word" that later I found out was contradicting at best.

Going into my third month and told the month prior I was to advance in pay - I received another deposit of $500, so naturally I inquired. Well, I quit. The outcome was something I was, in part aware could happen but in hopes it was an honest company.

Overall, I got myself into this and tried it out. I learned a lot, but mainly - not to accept a job from some unknown company, who doesn't have a contract or a minimum wage set in place. To not give "all" of my time to set family aside to work only on a hope and wish.

It's unfortunate, but they're breaking the labor laws if you ask me.

One staff member who just quit a week or so prior to my leaving investigated them with Revenue Canada and the Dept. of Federal Labor.

I too am looking into this myself. I don't have any plan on reporting them, but do want to fully understand my rights as an independent contractor vs. employee and minimum wage laws vs. training wage laws.

It's a hug headache, but worth learning about I'm sure.

To anyone who should apply with them - just make sure you have something in writing or a clear understanding of what will be expected of you.

Wishing you all well!

Default I find it fishy that a one time poster had all kinds of

positive things to say about this company,not to mention the day they posted was also the day they joined wahm.On page 2 if you notice member Iminandout their first posting was all about this company being wonderful and blah,blah,blah....hmmm strange huh?
Now I could be totally off the mark but I doubt I am,theres also not been any other posting from this person since.
I'll pass.
