Wonderful company to work for! Management and crew staff are friendly, helpful, and passionate about construction and what they do. Strong core values and beliefs which are followed through on by everyone in the company. I've worked on multiple sites, with multiple different crews, and the one thing that's consistent is the passion. Everyone truly cares for the core values and beliefs of Bird and focuses their daily tasks …
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 29 November 2017
For the short time I was there until they ran out of projects for me, it was a good experience and a learned a lot. Typical construction lunches with subs and clients. Direct manager was a good mentor. Higher ups had other things on their minds.
Bird Construction is a company that expands across Canada

Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 6 July 2017
The salary paid by Bird is pretty nice and has a lot of benefits. However, the management team is doing a terrible job on site. The deadlines for project are always postponed. Even though u are a permenent employee, the job is still not fully secured.

Journey carpenter (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 29 March 2017
I really liked the supervision and the work environment. I did find the mass size of the site at Fort Hills and the lack of a proper tool crib made it very hard to be productive at times. Many hours are spent walking around looking for tools and materials to complete the task . How ever that was not the case at Kearl lake where every tool didn't was available and in good working condition. Supervision at Kearl lake was very organized.
C0-workers were great to work with, some management issues but nothing that couldnt be handled.
Labour Foreman (Former Employee) – Alberta – 10 January 2017
Fast paced hard working atmosphere. Learned about civil work. Management for the most part was accommodating and easy to work with. Safety was promoted extensively and followed through. Had many great experiences with peers. Job was very labour intensive and best methods not always employed. Great place to learn.
