Electronics Technician (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 5 March 2016
The company will generally train you for what you need to advance within the company. Once you are in it is up to you. There is a lot of hurry up and wait and a lot of bureaucracy. As a service company, you may be asked to be ready for Monday, then, hurry up and be ready for Sunday, then find out at the last minute that the job has been pushed to Wednesday. If you can deal with that, the management is generally reasonable.
