They usually kept everything organized to my knowledge. Most of the upper management was nice.There was a lot of drama in the work force. The pay was decent but the only advancement was if you went to school and educated yourself.

The everyday grind at this job was simple and fun. Management was very approachable and willing to help with any issues you may of had. Co-workers made the day much easier to handle and fun. The hardest part was being on my feet all day but very manageable for being such a minor thing.
Insulator (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 28 November 2016
Excellent mentors and journeyman available to teach new green hands. pay is excellent and work long hours. Co workers were always fun to work with. Hardest part of the job was the tight spaces having to work in
Management only means business. No concern to employees. It's always busy so work can be toxic. Definitely no advancement (maybe after 5-20 yrs, or so). Very long working hours. Can't even have a balance personal lifestyle

I enjoyed my employment with Aluma. The people were great to work with and Aluma offers great training and upgrading opportunities. If not for being a contract worker I would have stayed with Aluma until retirement.
Scaffolder (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 February 2015
Show up at work and start with toolbox meeting. Once on site I would get a crew together and assess the hazards for the scope of work to be completed for the day. My coworkers and I developed good working relationships understanding the importance of communication. The hardest part of the job is planning and mobilizing the gear to the job site accurately for the day. I enjoy the positive relationships that I did have with my coworkers.
Learning something new everyday and gaining experience
