Productive workplace with great benefits and opportunities for advancement.
Skilled Labourer (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MB – November 29, 2013
Pros: amazing salary and benefits, straight forward expectations, good people.
Cons: seasonal indefinitely, short construction season.
Typical Day A typical day of work started at 7am with a meeting and discussion of the work to be done, a drive to the site, safety audit, and working until around 1pm at which point we took lunch. After lunch we cleaned up the site and drove back to the yard for around 3pm, or just after, unless there was approved overtime available.
What I learned I – more... learned how to repair roads, sidewalks and curbs. Framing, dismantling, and finishing concrete. I also did asphalt work when required.
Management Excellent management that will always work with you to explain expectations and work through interpersonal conflict between employees respectfully and professionally.
Co-Workers For the most my co-workers were great, there were a few egos here and there but generally once a positive work ethic was displayed an individual didn't seem to have too many problems at work.
Hardest part of the job Id say teaching new employees or employees from other departments how to work in street maintenance while meeting the expectations and time frames was the hardest part of the job. – less
Clerk B (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MB – April 10, 2013
Pros: salary, benefits
Very busy, the way I like it. My co-workers were wonderful. The hardest part of the job was not being able to do things faster for the vendors. The most enjoyable part of the job was my co-workers and also dealing with the vendors.
Parks Coordinator - Utility 2 (Current Employee), Winnipeg, Manitoba – February 25, 2013
Pros – The people are great - you really get to know the people you work with, and the potlucks are fun. The work is very interesting - you are responsible for quite a bit from the beginning. Hours are standard, which is great since there's no overtime
Cons – Bad/inefficient work flow/distribution. There's always a lot of work to be done, but the way – more... it is distributed to employees needs to be fixed. There was a whole month that I basically had nothing to do, and days were pretty boring because you have very limited internet access – less
