OFFICE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 27 April 2017
Its a engineering company with many competitors, gives alot of perks and benefits before the lay offs started. Overall day to day was a learning experience with different challenges to overcome which make me grow as a person.
Civil Designer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 13 April 2017
It is a very relaxed company. The work load is generally quite low. This allows for good balance between work and family but it also means there is no room for advancement. There are no raises or promotions. There is little or no communication between branches in different cities. The Vancouver office can be drowning in work while the Calgary office is aggressively cutting staff. I am not sure how Hatch compares to other firms but it feels like the turnover rate is high. Few people stay longer than 3 years.
good and friendly place to work. Interesting projects, a lot of experienced engineers, designers, technician. cooperative teams, no major problems during design. Most of the time all work was done without major problems and mistakes. thanks good management .
Excellent company, good organization, good possibilities for advancement,friendly environment, fair salaries.Possibilities to travel to many countries around the World.
A typical day is an eight hour day. But due to the company's concern and care of its employees, many employees would work overtime and on weekends without consideration of extra pay.
Management was careful to attend to its employees needs and concerns.
Work place culture was friendly and cooperative.
The hardest part of any job was to avoid failure.
The most enjoyable part of a job was to have it completed to the entire satisfation of the Management and of the Clients.
What I learned was above all the way human nature acts and reacts to circumstances.The possibility to travel to many countries around the World for the Company's projects enlarged and enriched my experience of Human Society and its varied cultures.
Tunnel Inspector/Geologist (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 February 2017
Employees have a considerable degree of independence. Average salary and benefits but tenure is limited to the number of projects the company has. Attempts to keep personnel as long as business allows. Career growth is limited/negligible if you are not an engineer
Good rapport with middle managers
Career growth is limited/negligible if you are not engineer
Engineer-in-Training (EIT) (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 27 January 2017
There is a lot to learn from this company especially when you join as a junior. To help, advise, mentor and guide the young professionals there is also a group named YP group that hosts a lot of events which helps build a connection between the youth groups. It is a great company to work and learn from. Hatch has a great work place culture and everyone is willing to help you if you are getting to know a project or your job. The management is also great that gives you great pay, vacation and benefits!
