Journeyman Electrician (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 January 2018
Canem was always great to me. I worked with them on a few different occasions. one time it landed me in the arctic circle up in Inuvik. that was a pretty cool experience. you really get to know some of the guys well when you're in situations like that. overall I enjoyed Canem. I was going through some personal challenges when I got laid off from Canem, & the company I felt was doing the same. Hoping one day maybe we could consider working together again soon.
Great productive team
sometimes longer hours, but its a lot easier with a great crew

I worked for Canem on a few different sites. Never had an issue with any of the management. As a female electrician this was one of only a few companies I can say that I was treated fairly, and equally. I would apply again if the opportunity arose.

would have been nice, if honesty was there. was disapointed after driving 1500 miles for work something i've always wanted to do. now im laid off, can't apply on EI and now seems like my dream has been ripped away from me.
Challenging, fast-paced employer with a family feel and many rewards
Journeyman (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 30 October 2017
Canem Systems Victoria is an excellent place of employ for enthusiastic individuals who possess a hunger for knowledge and physical challenges. With many talented and experienced individuals in their employ I would strongly recommend any apprentice seeking employment to place Canem Systems high on the list of pursuits. Canem also offers a variety of work environments each bringing there own challenges and rewards in a continuous learning package. One must earn ones place which may not always be easy, but once earned the rewards of that "family" feeling are well worth it. Emphasis is on quality, efficiency and last but not least safety as it should be in any company, again being rewarded with safety awards as accident free hours accumulate.
I worked with a lot of really good, talented people
Electrical Service Foreman (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 16 October 2017
Canem at one time used to be a customer service company where everyone knew each other, helped each other. the it became corporate and everything suffered, the work and customer relationships became sub standard and cheap to make a better dollar
Electrician - apprentice 2nd year (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 23 July 2017
overall good company. great coworkers, management is good but not very present. If you are on the right crew and know right people, you will learn a lot. Other crews might be stuck doing repetitive tasks. Lay offs are always a gamble here. Canem likes to keep young long serving members.
some projects will be repetitive and have weird schedule
apprentice (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 June 2017
When there is a slow down people of colors go first regardless how hard you work. Some of their foremen seems racist and got the power to fire if they don't like you.Pure racism and discrimination.The boss is a great person though.
Good overall place to work for and do not let women get harassed. I was harassed andž
Equipment Operator/Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Regina Saskatchewan – 4 June 2017
I did like how suprevision did things except for one foreman. Office did not do background check obviously because a foreman that was not liked had just come out of Jail for beating up a woman and he was not a patient man and allowed drinking.
Electrical Apprentice (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 9 April 2017
I loved working for Canem, I still would be there if I didn't need to move. All company's have their pros and cons, but I found Canem had many more pro's. Variety of jobs and office was easy to deal with. At the time, overtime was easy to obtain and were appreciative if you offered to help. I would work for them again in a heartbeat!

Amazing company to work for with good backing and excellent clients. They have excellent staff and knowledge of jobs at hand. Prior projects that go to prove they are a reputable company. Excellent administration, estimators, Managment, and payroll. Since day one on the job they have made me feel like an employee not a number.
