Productive and educational workplace
Apprentice Electrician (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 22 September 2014
-7am start work with meeting with foreman whom will give you a workload for the day; by 11am quick lunch break, discuss task progress with foreman. 11:30 until 3:30/3pm, complete assignment or if finished, take the initiative to complete another task.
-Most Foreman are very helpful in that if you have any questions, ask them and they will take you through it step by step until you get it right; especially before you start a task.
-upper management focuses on timetables and quality results with an almost Darwinism outlook on performance. If you sit back in the shadows and not take initiative to perform tasks or do a horrible installation job or take the initiative to fixes others mistakes, they may add you to the list of next lay-off’s when projects die down with little money to pay their workforce. Yet if you show you will jump through any hoop to get the task done and be the first in line with a predatory attitude whilst still maintaining team spirit, then that is your ticket to job security within the company.
-work environment is more team-like than you think with an emphasis of helping co-workers when they need it and working as a cohesive unit.
-Hardest part of the job will be the work, which is also the most enjoyable part next to making lifelong friends with your co-workers.
very helpful staff that will teach you as you go
Semi Seasonal work with frequent lay-offs every two or so years
