Fast pace, Safety based construction proffessional
Site Superintendent (Current Employee), Fort Mackay, ABJanuary 21, 2015
Day to day operations of heavy civil job sites. Everyday operations of sub contractors. Daily reports, inspections, tool box meetings, safety meetings, progress meetings, coordination meetings, manpower requirements, scheduling requirements, Procurement, Budgeting, Contract management, Cost impact management, Work scope changes and delays. Work with all trades in the heavy civil industry. Carpenters, structural, earthworks, pipefitters, scaffolders, etc. The hardest part of the job has always been the end of jobs. Having to layoff the people that have done excellent work in the field. The most enjoyable part in construction for me is the sense of accomplishment. After arriving on site and working in an excavation or large open area, to completion and having an operational facility in its place.

Pros: free accomodations and lunches

The work at Pacer can be interesting at times but definitely is lacking the great work/life balance however that is the nature of the work because it is a camp job.

Lots of safety, made for long meetings and a later start to the day. I've learned a lot about forming and hoarding. The most enjoyable was the people and the paycheck, the hardest part is the management...unorganized

It's better than nothing !!!
Heavy Duty Mechanic (Former Employee), Fort McMurray, ABFebruary 6, 2013
Pros: compatible salary
Cons: flights & accomodations
Well let's talk about a typical day at work...There is 2 foreman in the shop. One have red seal ticket and know what he's doing. The other one don't have any ticket and don't know what he's doing...The management, I don't think Pacer have qualify people for the management, and all the accounts are blocked so you can't get any part to get your job done. The co-workers were excellent to work with...only one back-stabber. The hardest part of the job, There's not enough tools...and you can't finish your job because they have no part, the machine can stay for a while in the shop and they switch you on another job and the next job is pretty much the same thing..
