Labourer (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 18 November 2016
Endurance Wind Power was a fast paced, start up like company. It had a great work force, team players and hard working people. It could be very stressful due to the pace and start up nature. The company did offer good benefits, flexibility and they tried to offer career advancement.

No real plan for expanding in future; limited market; highly dependent on governmental funds and incentives. it means the business does not grow where there is no bank to support individuals financing the product / where there is no wind / where government does not buy the electricity you feed into grid.
So it may be a good place to learn "the wind turbines basics" but no long term prosperity for sure.

Working at Endurance is typically a fast paced day. There are always things moving and changing. As always within a fluid environment one has to deal with change constantly which is easy to do with the mentality of my co-workers. The most enjoyable part of my job is achieving goals! We are driven at Endurance and the mentality is that the company is employee-owned.
