overall a poorly planned basic job
Steamfitter-Pipefitter @488 (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB3 January 2017
No Toolboxes, hence tools were always scattered in various spots and far away in lay down area. No crane use in budget, so lets pay extra guys to stand around and watch the young guns manually hand rig and transfer the spools in tight areas in a live plant. Never had the right use of manpower on jobs or the right tools. we had to burrow from other contractors because we knew the employees working there to help out our day. Expected high demand but with unorganized work ethic. Camp was not good in terms of food and travel. Overall, stupid. I wont go work for that Super again if I hear he's running another job.
Pros
good wage
Cons
poor project management

Clerk (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON19 August 2016
Aecon needs to look at the lower Management/Supervisors. Hiring friends over actual qualified folks like myself.
I Sat around most days for hours on end, trying to keep myself busy by doing their mandatory 40 hr university courses, and each day I asked for work however favoritism over work was very present, and my boss favored her hired friends by giving them work and leaving 4 other employees sitting around doing not much all day.
Pros
Ice cream in the lunch room
Cons
management

Many divisions, relating to good understanding of inter-companies.

Not being able to find a position within Aecon that would further enhance my career.
