very fast paced, giant work site. runway alone was 4.2 km long.
Runway Reinforcement Crew Forman (Former Employee), YYC calgary airportDecember 11, 2013
as foreman, the beginning of the day would start off with me picking up my crew at the cement plant and driving them out to site. we'd then go over the locations of the taxiways and runways that needed reinforcement baskets installed. we'd have our daily tool box meeting and go over the hazards which were pretty much the same day in day out, as this – more... job was very repetitious. i'd then begin filling out timecards for each person on my crew. a hour or so into the day i would meet up with my supervisor to discuss any changes or areas that needed to be done immediately so we could pave that day. i would then coordinate with my loader operator to have materials moved to these locations. this job taught me how to keep track of tools, materials and people on the jobsite. over all dufferin was great company to work for. – less

Work/Life balance varies based on job and position.
Job Security does not exist, regardless of your successes and/or failures.
People are fabulous. Best place to learn about the business. The Salary and benefits are fantastic which help offset the work/life balance and job security cons.
Health and Safety is Tops!!

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Deux Rivieres, ONOctober 30, 2013
Every day at work was a different experience with several challenges. My co-workers were excellent to work with & willing to explain what the procedures & work schedules were about. There was a lot of repetitive work & challenging to remember the different construction codes but manageable.

General Labourer (Current Employee), London, ONNovember 10, 2012
Pros: n/a
Cons: family run - can be difficult to work your way up and establish a different position
Overall, good company to work for. Given many opportunities to learn different skills, such as, bobcat and fork lift training. Rewarded for my work performance by being appointed lead hand position, where I am expected to oversee fellow employees and quality of work. The hardest part of the job at times, is working throughout extreme weather temperatures – more... and ensuring quality of work during those times, as well as safety of co workers. – less
