HUMAN RESOURCES/TRAVEL COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 25 April 2016
My time at Ledcor was truly one of the best work based experiences I've ever had. The management team were very helpful and very considerate to your needs. Even though they are such a huge company, they made you feel like an individual and not a number like most huge organizations. I would work for them again if the opportunity came up.
Labourer (Former Employee) – Boyle, AB – 18 February 2016
I've always had a good experience with Ledcor. They're a good company to work for. They believe highly in safety and making sure that every one and every thing is done safely. They take care of their workers.
Away from friends and family for long periods of time

Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Chetwynd, BC – 29 January 2016
typical day would be show up to work and have our safety meeting in the morning to find out what would be going on the site and discussing how to better productivity. always keeping safety in mind finding out how they can better the site. they want you going home safely to your family at the end of each day. Doing our proper pre trip inspections on all the machines and reporting any issues that need to be dealt with. 12 hr shifts are breaks were broken up evenly and you got two 15min breaks and a 30 min for lunch.
I was hired as a labourer. Did odd jobs...moving portable light posts, checking sump pumps, cleaned up messy storage c cans. Eventually got into a packer machine. On down time, would ride in a rock truck.
Heavy Duty Mechanic (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 7 January 2016
One of the least organized or supportive companies I ever worked for. Enormous stress placed on their mechanics by lack of parts tooling and reference materials. Expected equipment running whether there were parts to repair or not. Management removing mechanics do not operate tags when equipment not fixed, etc.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Kitimat, BC – 18 November 2015
Wages were great, safety was a big priority (and at times way overdone- knives were not allowed) Plenty of hours but no travel time between terrace and the job site was paid (equaled about 2.5 hours per day!) Was not given much opportunity for advancement in the time I was there, which was disappointing.
