Don't look for any support
Coordinator/specialist (Former Employee) –  OntarioApril 27, 2016
It's unfortunate that once you are hired the support you receive is very limited, especially when your immediate supervisor has different priorities than to support you. My immediate boss was too busy teaching at a university, running her own business, and schmoozing the brass to even give me the time of day. Not to mention her personal issues were impeding upon my initial training into the role.

Should you take on a position with an otherwise good company I suggest you insist on support not from her assistant but herself. Let's see if you end up being a priority...in fact seek out her LinkedIn account and you will notice that the unfortunate listing of this company is NOT her priority.

Don't sign the job offer if it has a TERMINATION clause in it, have it reviewed by an employment lawyer.
Pros
Local office people were nice. Except the security coordinator
Cons
lack of support, lack of salary, exceedingly amount of responsibility.

Modern Niagara was a big collage for me. The management encourages continuous training and skill upgrading of the employees.

Laborer (bonded) location Parliament Buildings (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ONJanuary 14, 2016
Although I only worked for Modern Niagara for a few months, I enjoyed it. It was impossible to get to my designated job site because of the Public transportation system not coming early enough. Other than that problem, everyone I worked with was a great influence and I ended up learning a lot about myself and about the trade!
Pros
Paid Weekly, People, Mon - Friday
Cons
Arriving late because of OC Trasnpo

They have some of the worst field foremen on the face of the planet. Do not go to work for there people unless you are a drunk or a jungle
crew member (Former Employee) –  albertaJuly 27, 2015
worst company I ever worked for The foreman were all drunks. The office staff did not seem to have a clue what was going on. The upper management did not seem to care about anything. They allow a bunch of ego driven foreman To run around yelling screaming at all the employees. It was like being in a kindergarten only a kindergarten full of alcoholics

working with drunks that don't know there job

Hard working place, Good people.
Plumbing (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SKJuly 16, 2015
Getting everything ready, get ready for a hard working day. ready the skyjack and dont forget tools. I learned a lot of things, everyday there are new things i learn. you cannot learn new things every day. The managment was good there always organized, they were fun and kept communication with the workers. Always asked how you were that day. My co workers i would like them to be fun, caring, and hard working, and not always yelling or grumpy.
Pros
free lunch and long hours, good pay
