Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 24 January 2018
I am very appreciative of my time at On Side. I owe them for teaching me my administrative skills, time management, keeping calm under pressure and they have provided me with job security for two and a half years. I do feel however, that there is no where for me to advance as it is a male dominated business. There is a lot of pressure that comes with the job that can be both very satisfying/rewarding, but also extremely stressful.

You will make a decent amount of money and learn a lot about building science. However it is a very time consuming position that requires much "on-call" service that can take away from your personal life.

Project Manager's Assistant- Administration (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 March 2015
Due to micromanagement and an extremely negative environment this was a horrible company to work for. Operation staff is a joke and directly reflects on the salary you will make, while nothing is being done to fix these issues. Your job will entitle duties that were not previously explained to you prior to taking the position. Do not work for this company unless you are desperate for work.
Contents Supervisor (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 2 February 2015
My job requires me to adapt to multiple situations within a day. I assist with dispatching our extremely competent contents staff, I liaison with management, clients and sub-trades as well as provide budget estimations.
When a claim goes quickly and efficiently it is the most gratifying job you could ever ask for. The clients are happy, the project managers are satisfied and the adjusters are appreciative.

Carpenter (Former Employee) – BC – 2 December 2014
Typical day at work was start at 8:30am work until 5:00pm. things I learned where how to pack a house out. How to use water extractors, Drier Fans and D'Humidifiers in floods. Management was not the best communication was poor mainly because our project managers were not trained enough. I was working there 2 years and not once was told I was doing a good job. The only time you got to talk to your project managers was when there was a problem and it was always your fault. I did not like management. However I Got along great with my co-workers it was like a big family. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the project managers and the most enjoyable part of the job was working on a smooth running job with my co-workers.
The company provided company vans and tools for us to use
