The managment is a joke
Tandem Operator (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABAugust 9, 2014
Pros: good field guys
Cons: management
This place is a complete joke. The actually working guys are all good but get treated like dirt by management. Everyone was always complaining about how they were treated or the fact that you could never get equipment repaired. It was so bad that if you need new tires you couldn't get them because they owed the tire place to much money. One of the drivers was fired because he was cleaning his windows and mirrors. A foreman had accused him of sitting at a dump site when he protested and said that the only time he had been at a dump site for more than a couple of minutes was to clean his windows and mirrors because they were covered in mud the response he got was "oh well to bad". I would never recommend them as a place to work for anyone.

High turn over for drivers
driver (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABApril 22, 2014
Was great to start, working 6days/week, no on call. Company was paying Merit from first check but still had to wait for 300 hours before benefits kicked in. Pay was okay. Fire a lot of good drivers before their three months is up, so zero job stability. Everyone complains n moans, mechanics are slow to get stuff fixed on time. If you let the office staff know you know your legal rights when it comes to pay and such, you get accused of harassment. If you don't want to be looking for another driving job, don't go to A& A.

Great field staff
Office (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABFebruary 25, 2014
Pros: free parking
Cons: unappreciated, low wage for construction, missing strong leaders
I worked in the office and felt very unappreciated by the owners and management - assisted with positions that were not in my position scope for 3 months working extra hours for no extra compensation. Worked with the company and my manager made excuse after excuse not to give me a review or a bump in pay.
Loved the field guys, they reminded me why I came to work everyday and it was to support them to make their jobs easier. Great bunch of guys....

No Complaints!
Heavy Equipment Operator (excavator) (Former Employee), Edmonton, AlbertaMay 30, 2013
Pros: "family first" philosophy. great field supervisors.
Cons: it's still construction.
Definitely one of the better companies to work for. First off, it's construction, so by the very nature of the work, one can expect a certain amount of chaos. Add to that the fact you're working on multiple sites each day, so there's going to be more stress coming from a variety of sources. That being said, I have nothing but good things to say about A&A. Their field managers are knowledgeable and articulate enough to help you work through any issue, yet never arrogant. The equipment is good, it's year-round work and family comes first. Meaning if you have a family matter to deal with, you deal with that and once it's taken care of, you still have a job. Remember, it's fast paced, so if you're a "Type B" personality, you're better off staying home. I still go in from time to time to help out and it's always a positive experience.

stressful.
Skid Steer Operator (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABMarch 5, 2013
Pros: good wage, good equipment, lots of hours.
Cons: management
They tend to never check out a site before bidding on it, pushy, constantly disturbing operators by phone and radio, don't seem to listen when you tell them how long the job will take or if there is obstructions that makes the site impossible to work.

Co workers were very disgruntled, unhappy with management.

Mechanics don't listen to operators when equipment is having issues.
