corporate (Former Employee) – Concord, ON – 31 January 2018
Company was amazing when i first started. Felt like a family everyone wanted to work together. Last few years we have been faced with many challenges and the company lacked communication and structure. Multiple people producing same tasks resulting in duplication of work.

Do what the Senior Leaders tell you but don't do what they do. The UK company sent all their friends on fat salaries and bonuses ignoring the local talent. They parachute General managers with 0 experience. One of them who went back to UK 1 week after. We don't have trained and skilled people in Canada? They made good leaders leave the company and the result? Bankruptcy. This is Carillion.
OPERATOR (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 17 January 2018
I entered this job with no experience and everyday I was given the opportunity to learn new skills. I got to preform a wide range of different tasks from plowing snow to removing roadkill from the highway. I am thankful for each co worker and the training they provided.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 16 December 2017
The management talks to the employees in a derogatory and sarcastic manner all day every day. No Christmas bonus no Christmas party no Christmas card even.They can't even say thank you.Management is more concerned with blaming the employees with it's own shortcomings than accepting the blame for failure at the jobsite.
unknown (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 September 2017
Carillion is a tough company to work for - structure is chaotic - they are reactive with no time or resource to be proactive It's a shame really because there are some great people working there p they just don't have the authority to make decisions and those who do make decisions do so with little regard for the Canadian portion of the business. There are different rules for everyone. Class based system
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 30 April 2017
This was one of the most thankless jobs Ive ever had. They dont pay very well at all and care very little about the health and well being of their drivers. They expect constant on call 24 7 and will work you until you cant walk anymore. They are horrible when it comes to women in this company. Most of the drivers are perverts and drunks or drug addicts although they have a few decent ones. And if one of these perverts do something derogatory the dist mgr simply gives them a slap on the hand. Most of the drivers at least in my division wanted to sleep all shift and complain constantly when asked to do a job. When asked to be on shift with others instead I simply got a too bad from the boss. I worked there for two seasons and will never go back. The public is also very unappreciative of your efforts as I constantly had people giving the finger or dirty looks or swerving towards the plow. Put simply youare way overworked and bossed around. Underpayed and not apperciated. It makes you miserable. They have NO concern for employees.
Utility Construction Working Foreman (Former Employee) – Toronto, Ontario – 31 March 2017
It was a interesting place to work, I worked in the utility department, the people were fun to work with, the age group was a lot older then I was at the time.. was able to advance my skills and learned different ways to construct in the business
A fun place to work. Staff for the most make it a fun place to work. Management are good and helpful.
Emergency Response Driver/maintenance worker (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 January 2017
I like it here. There is lots to learn and lots of provided training. For the most fellow workers are great. The hours are good and there is overtime available for those who want to work. Management work with you on any issue and are courteous and very knowledgeable. Would recommend Carillion to anyone out there. Carillion is a industry leader on may fronts.
Driver (Former Employee) – Mactier, ON – 18 January 2017
12 hour shifts Plowing 400 series highway. This is temporary until I find a full time position in my field. Work well with co-workers Different aspects to the position include sometimes having to sit at road closures due to accidents. Hardest part of the position is plowing in poor visibility.

Operator (Current Employee) – Slave Lake, AB – 3 November 2016
There is no day that is the same. Everyday is a different, from replacing guide posts to replacing signs. Work with a different co-worker most days, so everyone gets along and works well together. Hardest part of job is plowing snow in almost zero visibility. Most enjoyable part is outside work and physical work.
physical work, always busy
long hours in the winter on call 24/7 for six months
