Do you only hire students?
The majority of our Site Operators are students in a post secondary program. However, we are open to hiring grade 12 graduates for our Summer and Fall season and those not currently in school. Ideal candidates not currently in school might be on a work visa, saving-up to travel or looking for part-time work.
Do I have to be enrolled in a Business Program?
No. We hire students from different programs and facilities. The DECO Site Operators that perform best and earn the most money regardless of the school program are; confident, prefer to work independently, goal oriented, thrive when give responsibility and have previous customer service or sales experience.
Can I work with DECO outside of April-October?
We have select opportunities in cities across Canada to do commercial service work -and mobile repairs at customers homes or workplaces during the Winter Season.
Do I need a car or can I take public transit to work?
Yes, you need a car. A vehicle is required to transport your kiosk set-up, equipment and repair tools (flag, tent, table, stool, toolbox, rubbermaid) each day.
Is DECO a franchise in certain regions of Canada?
No. All DECO locations are owned and managed corporately from our head office in Calgary.
Where is training held?
We put on Regional training events across Canada in major cities.
I can’t start work until June. Will that be a problem?
No. While we prefer to hire students who have availability from April through October, we understand that not everyone’s schedule allows for that. If you are a great candidate, we have no problem with you starting later or finishing the season earlier. Attending the spring Regional training event is still required.
Why would I work for DECO and not another windshield repair company?
DECO Windshield Repair is North America’s largest windshield repair company and Canada’s Top Student Employer celebrating it’s 14th year in business. We’re most excited about our growing list of DECO alumni that have gone-on to launch their careers and be young leaders in communities across Canada in the past decade. We’re licensed with the Alberta Motor Vehicle Industry Council (AMVIC) and the Auto Glass Safety Council of North America.
I’m a people person. Will I enjoy operating a site by myself?
Absolutely. The average windshield repair or glass treatment takes just 15-20 minutes. You’ll see a lot of different people throughout the day for short amounts of time. In addition, using the DECO app and Slack on your company provided iPad allow you to communicate instantly with other team members and your manager.
What is DECO’s stand on Corporate and Social Responsibility?
DECO makes great efforts in this area. Let’s talk about the environment first. Since windshields cannot be recycled, thousands and thousands of windshields end up in landfills every year. We aim to prevent windshield replacements by educating our customers on the importance of repairing a chip before it cracks out. We use as many biodegradable products that we can, we’ve eliminated paper with the iPad, switched our aerosol glass cleaner to the eco-friendly waterless carwash products and replaced paper towels with microfibre cloths. We also care about the communities we work in. We partner with charitable organizations by giving away prize packs and participate in as many community events as possible.
