Electrical Supervisor & Systems Specialist (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 19 November 2016
Black and McDonald have a preset management crew (good bunch), but this means that opportunities to advance are very limited. There were lots of paid overtime hours and if you worked hard you could work as many as you liked. Overall a good work experience and I would work for them again.
Employee (Former Employee) – Dartmouth, NS – 5 November 2016
Unless you are best buds with upper management you are completely expendable. Over worked, under payed, not appreciated and watch out if someone "important" screws up because they will throw you under the bus without blinking an eye. If you are a heartless creep who likes riping off customers and suppliers and follows the "screw anyone over to advance" approach to success, than this is the place for you!

Labourer/Driver (Former Employee) – Pickering, ON – 26 May 2016
Each morning I would be instructed on the days plan. I would then load material that would be needed. Once on site, a safety meeting would take place regarding the hazards we may face. My co-workers were respectful hard working. Black and MacDonald had the most respectful management teams I have ever worked for. The site had many different contractors that sometimes made it difficult for us to accomplish ours days work. I very much enjoyed working closely with my co-workers.

SENIOR BUILDING OPERATOR (Current Employee) – 14 Carlton Street – 12 April 2016
I am pro-active person that strongly believes in good planning will always result in good results. I enjoy making a positive difference in both my daily work and also the people and customers that I associate with.
Every day is learning experience and should be shared with other to continue the enhancement of the team.
The hardest part of a job is to maintain a good customer focus level even when faced with a difficult customer. Patience is the key to implementing this positive attitude and the reward of solving the problem and meeting your customers need often proves your worth and skill levels.
Fast paced environment
Lots of travelling involvd that takes away from actual work time.
