Electrician (Former Employee) – Nisku, AB – 15 June 2017
I was with Pyramid Corporation for roughly 5 years. I completed my electrical apprenticeship with them and they were always willing to hire me back after my school was completed. The benefits were excellent and the people that I worked with were always helpful. I learned a lot through this company. Usually the toughest part of the job was trying to grasp the new material. For the most part, the management seemed to be in good order and was easy to deal with. My favourite part of working with Pyramid was the good workplace atmosphere.

The Health and Safety Director is an Alcoholic who has no respect for a work life balance or women. He has poor education and zero person skills. The company as a whole do not appreciate intelligent people and would prefer followers as to leaders.
Apprentice Electrician (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, SK – 29 May 2017
The job I was on was terrible. The guys running the job walked around as if the were the end all be all. The negativity was the worst I have ever seen and no body wanted to there. guys always sleeping on the job and the foreman and supervisors didn't know how to teach the workers they only told you to figure it out

Pyramid was great to work for in regards to fantastic management, great co-workers & a lot of ongoing projects available throughout the province of Alberta. The shifts offered were beneficial for travelers & family life.
Journeyman Electrician (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 10 January 2017
A place for those to acquire a variety of skills depending on location and contract availability within oil sands, commercial and Industrial type settings. Thus boosting ones skill bank and providing them a skill set to move on to something more permanent or to ones liking. typical contract industrial work.
Basically a place to learn and feel things out for the future
lack of older senior skilled tradesmen, makes learning difficult
Human Resource Administrator - Intern (Former Employee) – Nisku, AB – 26 December 2016
Every sector is in a different part of the building and not much communication was between work areas. HR was split up in different building cause lack of communication between fields. Besides that the work environment was great and my co-workers in recruitment were excellent with helping me and learning along the way as I was still a student in the Human Resource Management program. It was a great learning experience in the recruitment section.
Instrument Technician (Former Employee) – Bonneyville, Alberta – 24 November 2016
Enjoyed the aspect of being home every night. I just didn't like the area I was in and found that I didn't really fit in to the culture there. I was an apprentice at the time and don't believe I really undrstood the "lay of the land" at the time.
