Senior Technical Representative (Former Employee) – South River, ON – 20 August 2017
A typical day would be spent doing roof and floor layouts for quotation or orders. A lot of problem solving and juggling required as a result of company not taking quality control seriously, this resulted in a very stressful work environment. I enjoy designing trusses, but problems created by poor quality made it a tough job.
Builder (Former Employee) – Utopia, ON – 24 August 2017
Always issues here machines break down constantly Intimedating staff and management I didn't I feel safe in the envirenment no training if you get something wrong they yell at you. Always someone tattling on you for listening to music No cell phone time allowed Pay is low and no one nos how bonuses work or what you get. Favertism happens all the time. Not a safe envirenment

During my time working for Phoenix I had a blast. Great group of people that made going to work fun.I was happy to be able to work there while I did. Would recommend if you are willing to work hard and work steady hours
Builder (Former Employee) – New Lowell, ON – 14 March 2017
Worse place ever. It's like a high school environment. If they like you your in if not watch your back. Bonuses are horrendous. They tell you you'll make all this extra money but you won't. They are relying on what happened 5-10 years ago. Builders make out like they are your friends then backstab you every chance they get. Very negative environment. They make it seem like they are doing more then what they are. They are slapping trusses together.

Flatbed Truck Operator (Former Employee) – New Lowell, ON – 11 March 2016
If you decided that you want to drive for this company I would think twice. There equipment is less then par. The dispatch/ supervisor does not care for you or the the equipment. HR is never there which will not help you when you have a issue. If you decided to work for this company remember your always wrong.
If you value your cvor and abstract I suggest do not go here for a job.
However if you like to get pulled in at every MTO site and at the border this job is for you. Enjoy the tickets, if you let the company take care of it you will end up witha very bad cvor.
General labour/truss assembler (Former Employee) – New Lowell, Ontario – 6 July 2015
The company pays labours $12/hr for 12 hour long shifts. Granted you get what seems like a 3 day weekend if on night crew but you spend most of your Friday catching up on sleep. Your work is hard and at a very pressed fast pace, and balancing work life during the week with your home life is near impossible with start and finish times of 4:30pm - 4:30am, leaving you little time to do much during your wake time.
This job is defiantly an in between jobs kinda place, you won't want to stay long for the small incentive they offer, which is a possible $500/month production bonus that depends on your entire crews performance, and the $0.80/hr attendance bonus which tells you they have a hard time keeping employees.
All and all a sound company from the out side but on the inside of those doors you have alcoholics and drug users as I have noticed on my breaks. These poor souls probably driven there by the soul crushing job that is Phoenix building co.
Perfect for a single man with no life expectations
horrible hours,poor management.WOULDNT RECOMMEND IT TO MY WORST ENEMY.
General Labourer (Former Employee) – New Lowell, ON – 4 September 2012
Leave my house by 3:30pm and get hame after 4:30am depending on traffic. I learned not to get comfortable with a poor company. The management was terrible,I cant believe the way they treat theyre workers. My co-workers were great.I loved working with them. The hardest part of the job was not having a life outside of work. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I learned my lesson.

management&my hard work ethic not getting me anywhere
