overall a good job, bad management
3rd Year Scaffolder (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB12 February 2018
I enjoyed working at PCL but the management was not good. The schedule, paid flights and pay rate were all good as well as the camp. Great beds to sleep on and good food! In my year of working with PCL there were numerous occasions where management played favourites with certain employees. Overall still a good company.
Pros
paid well

Communication
Journeyman Electrician (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB9 February 2018
There was poor lines of communication within the company. Often times task specific information never made it to the people doing the work. In addition completed tasks were being done a second time, because the management was unaware it was completed
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
No job security

Labourer (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB1 February 2018
I worked through pcl as an ironworker and a labourer and they are great to work for. They offer great wages and employment opportunities. Pcl is very safety orientated and does not accept unsafe behaviour in their workers.

Pcl was a good company to work for
Electrical Foreman (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB12 January 2018
PCL was very quick to get you trained on anything you needed to complete your task. they also were very good at promoting the right people to supervision roles.
I moved up to a supervision role very quickly and I learned a lot being in the office for PCL at the Fort Hills project.
