All about the dollar, no family values
Powerline Technician (Former Employee) – Loydminster – May 11, 2016
It his company is all about the dollar. I've been in the Power line trade for almost 20 years never been treated by any companies this poorly. Massive blitzkreg style layoffs with NO notice in November of 2015 to save the company moeny. Fast forward to 2016 existing staff are being overworked, expected to pick up the slack of the 400 employees fired due to lack of work, as well they are expected to volunteer to go on road and work out of their areas that they live. I was asked to go almost weekly to work on road because it was a expenditure they could capitalize and get moeny back from the regulator. Atco hired contractors the week after the downsizing, how unethical.
Now it's all about increasing the profits in 2016, used the slide in oil prices as a excuse to get rid of productive employees and didn't touch management, atco has so many layers it's hard to keep track. When I worked there I had 3 layers of management for approx 20 tradesman what a joke.
None worth mentioning
Terrible management and communication bordering on incompetentance
