Hard work but very rewarding
Steamfitter Apprentice (Former Employee) –  Shepard Energy Cntr CalgaryNovember 26, 2014
Overall a good job in spite of some of the Kiewitt field engineers not having a clue what they were doing. The guy in charge of the AUX boiler should have stayed working in the warehouse because he is clueless. He was also involved with the safety tour and caused a lot of conflict due to his lack of understanding of what was being done.I never felt safe when he was involved with our work.
The 496 foremen were easy to work with and helped me see better ways to complete tasks. My Ganotec Super and Replacement piping project managers were a real pleasure to work for and made my time on Testing one of the most fun and memorable times I've ever had on a job. My only complaint was the overall demeaning way tradesmen were treated by some of the Kiewitt office staff. They really thought they were superior to the ticketed tradesmen and it fueled an "us vs them" culture. Would I work for GW again, in a heartbeat.
Pros
good work/ good pay/ fun site to be on
Cons
incompetent engineers/ tyranical piping project manager (littleman syndrome)

Ganotec West is a good place to work for and everybody body helps each other when needed.
I have learned a very valuable lesson with my co workers and the other trades that work for Ganotec West are equal and we all help each other within the company.
The management is very good to us and they try to accomadate and are very resourceful when we need help with our problems.
My co-workers are the best that i have worked with in a long time, they are great and when you need help they always help when needed.
I guest the hardest part of my job is picking up dunnage by myself and carrying it to a safe place so other workers will not trip or fall.
The most enjoyable part of my job are my co-workers and meeting other tradesman.
Pros
ganotec west has draws for the workers that fill out osb cards that can win prizes.
Cons
not to be able to work longer hours
