Are you passionate about cleaning? Are you interested in being your own boss? At Scandinavian Building Services you can join our team as an employee or an Owner Operator. If you possess either of these qualities, you would be a great fit for our company.

About Us

Scandinavian Building Services is proud to be a second-generation family owned and operated cleaning business. We have been providing quality and customer service excellence for more than 60 years.

Since the company’s inception in 1956, we have steadily grown our services and customer base to become Canada’s leading janitorial and facility maintenance company. We operate in almost every province and have regional offices in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec. Together, we have over 5,000 skilled team members throughout the country that belong to our Scandi family.

There are six different industries our cleaning services specialize in; retail, public sector, commercial, construction cleanup, sports and entertainment, as well as special services. We clean many well-known facilities and retail chains locally including Rogers Arena, IKEA, Cabela’s and Home Depot. We keep over 50 million square feet of property spotless every day!

Working for Scandinavian

To clean that much space, we need a dedicated and cohesive team of employees who work together to deliver quality and professional customer service in a fast-paced environment. We are always looking for energetic and enthusiastic people who have good communication skills, a positive work ethic, and experience in the commercial cleaning field or a similar area.

Scandinavian’s work is constantly reviewed by our customers, so that means it must always meet our standard of excellence. Our employees must pay careful attention to detail to ensure each cleaning requirement for a facility is met. They must also be able to do physical tasks such as lifting garbage bags, operating large cleaning equipment, and bending and reaching over the duration of an eight-hour shift.

Our cleaners and Owner Operators are an essential part of our company, so we provide you with many tools, resources, and training courses you need to excel in your position. Every employee hired by Scandinavian must complete several training programs, which outline how to properly complete tasks in the safest manner. You will receive both online training and on-site training where you will learn about site-specific cleaning requirements and how to operate the required cleaning equipment.

As a cleaner or Owner Operator, you will report directly to your Account Manager. They are there to provide support if needed. If you have any questions or concerns, they should be addressed to them. As a team, it is up to you and your Account Manager to deliver the best possible quality and service.

Available Positions

Scandinavian is currently looking to hire several cleaning specialists and Owner Operators. Our cleaning positions offer flexible hours and can be a stepping stone for advancement within our company. Day or night shifts are available.

As an Owner Operator, you must have your own small business and be able to employ staff who can help you meet the cleaning needs of a contract that has been given to you. Owner Operators aren’t Scandinavian employees, but partner with us to provide cleaning services. In this role you would have complete exposure to our technology, training, and safety programs.

We are also currently looking for a person to fill our Mechanic and Shipper/Receiver position at our Delta offices. This position allows you to use your mechanical abilities to repair and maintain the janitorial equipment and machinery. As well, this role includes overseeing the deliver and pickup of supplies and equipment and maintain the organization and cleanliness of the warehouse.
