first of all its a job. you get youre eighty hours. notorious for "laying off" employees thats are coming near 10 years, as it means a raise and extra in your pension. have to wait 5 years to get pension in the first place so chances are you will be "laid off" before then. you are always just a number and replaceable. crews are clicky. dont get much opportunity to learn if you aren't friends with a foreman or the son of a shareholder threatened with lay offs if you don't work overtime. benefits were good. have to buy youre own gloves. cheap handing out company promotional items like shirts or hats. the saying around there was get youre ticket and get out and I recommend that. huge office staff that can't win jobs to keep people working but they all keep their jobs. used to be a good place to work not anymore

Office doesnt care about you. Youre just another body out there making them an exra buck. Will do whatever necessary to line their pockets with 1 more penny regardless of loyalt hard work and dedication youve shown them. Poor job security and zero notice when job terminated.

Great guys and Foremans on site, excellent benefits and decent wages. Terrible management in office, will lay off loyal workers then hire back to reset lay off notices, bad communication from office to on site foreman, absolutely zero job security.
Great Company to work for with a outstanding safety record.
General Foreman (Former Employee) – Vanscoy, SK – 17 January 2017
Starting work at 5 pm and ending at 5 am gave you a lot of time to complete the objectives for the day. Management made sure things ran smoothly which made the experience more enjoyable. My co-workers respected each others skill sets and worked as a team.
Great money and when safety is maintained on the site, a BBQ to thank everyone for their hard work.

basically do our stretches, safety meeting in the morning and write our jha for the day then receive work from our foreman for the day then we would walk down the job and gather tools and information for the task then complete the task. we would record all material used for the day then give it to our foreman at the end of the day. sometimes i would learn stuff sometimes i would not. hardest part of my work days are probally working after breaks or when i got to walk around look for my foreman because im confused or dont know what to do.

We start every day with a safety meeting then work is assigned. Given the opportunity to perform task on our own with minimal input from management. Managers are very helpful with information that we need to complete our task. Great bunch of people to work with. Good company to work for.
Journeymen Electrician (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 16 February 2016
The work itself is really enjoyable, good coworkers, great pay. Management is somewhat to be desired, things don't run too smooth on that end. The big negative is job security with them. You never know when you will be laid off, even when you work your butt off trying to keep your job.
Got to learn alot of different jobs and skills in the company by working on different jobs
Terrible company when it comes to job security. You ever know when you will be laid off.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the crew that i worked with. We all got along very well and had a very good routine which made work a lot easier. Typical day at work started with morning meeting and stretched then we would get our duties for the day and write our task cards go to work then clean up prior to the end of the day. Management was good at times unorganized due to things such as lack of communication or not having the tools or material for the jobs when needed
