Scaffold Erector (Former Employee), Edmonton, AB – November 19, 2014
Cons: my first scaffold job
I worked 10 hr days Mon to Fri working with a 4 man crew. The journeyman pushed me hard to give them the supplies they needed for the job at hand. i worked in a tight atmosphere but i gained alot of knowledge and worked really hard. My coworkers were very knowledgeable about our job and explained things thoroughly about what we were doing. The hardest part of the job was hoisting up all the material to the pipe rack.. some were over 50 lbs and i would do that for hours on end.
Very professional company that has many advantages and opportunities.

Cons: long hours
Would recommend anybody that has the opportunity to work for Safway to take advantage of it.the opportunity to further your education and to advance within the company are within reach and the company is very accommodating in helping you reach your long term goals.
Scaffolder (Current Employee), Fort McMurray, AB – October 13, 2013
Pros: two on two off 12 hour days
Cons: management issues
I learned alot working here and was given alot of good opportunities, but the company has been heading down hill for awhile. Management has no concerns over their employee's and will screw over anyone to make themselves look better. They have a tendancy to set workers up for failure rather then find ways to make them a better employee
