No opportunity for advancement, not impresed
mechanic (Current Employee), niskuJanuary 16, 2014
Pros: very safety orienated
Cons: no social events, no common sense, no help from management
Working for PBI/ resources you feel like your the scrum of the earth, where PCL social events are concerned your not invited, common sense is out the window and if they can they will screw you over, you are a number and they want it all and give nothing in return, clac is an employers union so don't expect anything from them

They'll tell you one thing and then do another
Carpenter (Former Employee), EdmontonNovember 27, 2013
Pros: they have a union side that is probably good to work for
Cons: their field manager is a jerk; this side of pcl is scabs
I got hired by these guys for work in town, then as I left the orientation(which was long and unpaid) they said they didn't have anything for me. Couple days later I get a call for a job 100km out of town. Not a live out job, but a daily commute! They offered 50 bucks a week for gas, which doesn't help to much when you drive a full sized truck as well – more... as they wouldn't pay travel time. I called to discuss this but they wouldn't even answer the phone! So I left a message describing how that was not our initial agreement, and I will not drive 200 km a day for work. The field manager called me and bullied me and made it seem like it was me that was flaking out. I stood up to him and told him that was not our agreement. He got angry and hung up the phone. Don't work for these guys, they are scabs. – less

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABApril 1, 2014
Pros: training, benefits, work/life balance, career reviews, safety orientated
Cons: need more communication
PCL is a great company to work for; they are as loyal to you as you are to them. They offer great benefits that cover almost anything and they contribute to everyone's long-term savings. My coworkers are more like a family who has respect for each other and every year we get together for a great employee appreciation party. My Manager is straight to – more... the point so you always know where you stand, extremely understanding, and gives his team time to take care of their family responsibilities. I wish there was better communication within the company so everyone was always on the same page, but if you ask the right questions, you can get there. I am very grateful to have had a career with PCL for almost 8 years and I look forward to retiring with this company. – less
