awesome place to work because they treat you like family.
Fitter (Former Employee), Cambridge, ONOctober 17, 2014
Pros: treated fairly and like family
Cons: worked in the cold sometimes
The job was good, the employees were good people, and management was open minded, and respected the thought's and ideas of others.
I became a Journeyman Fitter while working with this company. I expanded my welding skills, and fitting skills. I learned that I also love training/teaching others how to read blueprints, and expand their knowledge of the – more... trade. I also learned how the fabrication side of things worked, as in getting drawing, and changes made.
All guys working there were willing to show/answer any questions co-workers had. Always there to help others, and each other.
the hardest part of the job was having to leave it. I had family problems at the time and left the province for a new start, which was a decision I regret because she never changed and my family split.
I looked forward to going to work because the company treated you like you were a somebody, and you are important to the company. I was treated like I was part of a family. the setting/environment was a family setting, and a safe environment. – less

Pros: i get to work with people of all trades and get to learn about the whole operation.
Cons: the shift is only 2 in / 2 out, i prefer longer shifts, the job is only contract so employment term is not known.
Overall this is a satisfactory job to work at. The shifts are 10 hours and possible overtime daily. My coworkers are awesome we get along good and we complete the tasks. The most satisfying part about the job is the challenge of meeting deadlines and meeting the quota.

Project Coordinator (Co-op) (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMarch 19, 2014
Working at this firm was both rewarding and challenging, as my technical and behavioral skills were constantly being used and tested on the job.

Fair company to work for.
Excavator Operator (Former Employee), Thunder Bay, ONOctober 1, 2013
Pros: short travel time to job site.
Cons: didn't form any.
Unfortunately, I was called by the Union to go to work for an extended time, however this job received an extended time completion date and I was laid out because they were overstaffed.
Therefore, other than going to work each day - the weather was not good for digging / installing this pipeline on most days - I did my job as well as I could and would – more... have liked to complete this job as the Union had told me.
Daily Hours: 6 Days per Week / 10 Hours per Day. – less
