Detailer (Former Employee) – Dartmouth, NS – 15 May 2017
Manager needed to be appeased. Enough said. The fellow employees were great and the work was fine. No training was provided however. The radio HAD to be on all day and we weren't allowed to wear our own headphones because the manager wanted to be able to yell to all of us at once without waiting.
Worker (Former Employee) – Saskatchewan – 21 February 2017
Senior management is only after bottom line resulting in poor branch level management. Poor safety reps. Smoke and mirrors.Friends and Relatives hired into positions and then do very little . Nucor core values makes a great poster to hang on harris walls but its no match to the buddy system
Sheer Operator (Former Employee) – Leduc, AB – 13 January 2017
was there for I think 6 years and made it to one of the highest positions we could get to before moving up to foreman. so that being said in order to get that position the foreman would have had to quit or get fired and that wasn't going to happen anytime soon.

SHIPPING/RECEIVING COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Leduc, AB – 17 September 2015
My day required me to create Bill of Ladings, that I generated for customer and product purposes. I would reassure customer that they were getting billed correctly for the correct product. I learned to work in a multi fast industry. Where my attention to detail could never lack. Management was very good and efficient As I only had 1 co- worker, it made for an easy work relationship I loved the diversity of my job

Close to home, relationship with coworkers, Ot

Shop hand (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 1 March 2015
Harris Rebar is the most unsafe company I've ever worked for. We produced a lot of work. The training was terrible I learned but was never taught the proper procedures. I enjoyed getting paid every week hardest part of the job was tying small rings of 15 m favorite part was learning metric measurements
General Foreman/ Superintendent (Former Employee) – LMRP Kapuskasing, Ont. – 11 February 2015
I believe their was too much inexperienced people in control of this specific project, and each had their own ideas.It needed one person to take charge. Unfortunately I did not start near the beginning of the project and therefore did not get an opportunity. I had a very good working relationship with the general contractor, Kiewit.
Accounting Administrator - Temp Contract (Former Employee) – Stoney Creek, ON – 21 September 2014
A good company to work for. Supportive and friendly co-workers. Management is helpful and takes direct interest in supporting all arrears of administration. Company in whole has a family value to it, and it was wonderful to see in my brief contract assignment how much everyone put so much effort in supporting fundraising up to little events such baby showers and birthdays.
Rod Buster apprentice (Current Employee) – Prince George, BC – 19 September 2014
Typical day at work: Start day with stretching and job duties for the day. Prepare site for required job. Prepare proper ppe. Lifting and packing rebar and placing it, tie in the rebar. Cutting rebar with required tool. Use of machinery if needed.
What you learned: I have learned new methods in the job site such as safety, proper use of power tools, operating machinery, how to utilize man power.
Your Co-workers: I have learnt many things from co workers and highly enjoy working with people and sharing ideas.
The hardest part of work: I would say the hardest part of my job would be continues packing of very heavy rebar and tying continues through the day, most of all the lack of work between job sites and winter.
The most enjoyable part of the day: I personally enjoy learning new things working with new people and the physically demanding part of the job
