Great Company for those with family and great place to retire.
Apprentice Electrician (Current Employee) –  calgary alberta6 October 2012
For those who are looking for steady 40 hour weeks with decent pay ATCO Structures & logistics is a very promising place. especially for journeymen of any trade. Work is always indoors, place is slow and relitivily easy. full benefits after three months. ATCO is great for those with kids and family.

The negatives though, they currently laid off 103 employees out of 400 due to lack of work as of October 2012. They are a union based company and as a result of that segiority rules over all.

Also, for those looking to start an apprenticeship at ATCO, please look elsewhere. In my personal opinion ATCO is not supportive of giving employees apprenticeships due to the fact that they cannot keep apprentices and employees, they to keep you there for as long as possible (or till they dont need you that is)

If you are planning on doing your entire apprenticeship at ATCO structures do not plan on keeping your jouneyman wage when you leave ATCO. You will not gain the required experience needed working here to be a well rounded Journeyman.

I suggest ATCO to those who are nearing retirement or looking for a steady decent paycheck. Work is very repetitive and relativily easy.
Pros
great benefits, weekends off, garenteed 40 hour weeks, work pace is easy to handle
Cons
zero overtime, union based, repetitive, not apprentice freindly

Poor managment
Lead Hand Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Alberta10 January 2018
Management constantly made poor decisions regarding projects. company is based on oil doing well, which lead to lots of lay offs, no job security. General Foreman and upper management have very little technical experience which leads to poor decision making and over all very little understanding of proper procedures or how long things take to do. High turn over rate in the engineering and design department. Because of this projects are constantly designed with flaws and mistakes which would be easily caught with experienced and competent designers.

Lack of leadership/direction from managment
Business Development (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB21 December 2017
Great people however management changes (both in people and direction) every 18-24 months. New managers never asked long time staff about company or what changes may be worthwhile.
