Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Sudbury, ON – 23 March 2017
I enjoy the flexibility of the family comes first dynamic. I have children, and they get sick, the play sports, and with proper notice, it usually is not a problem getting time off of work to be there for them. Also, the hours are flexible. I do notice however, as a temp worker for almost 3 years now, I find it discouraging to not know my jobs secure. Again, I have children and am raising them on my own, without knowing if my contract will ever become a permanent position.
Electrician Apprentice (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 October 2015
Great place to work a lot of the guys were really close, the work was repetative just a lot of conduit bending but the bosses were great and easy to talk to. Best part of the job was easily that it didnt feel like work half the time and the end of the day would come by quickly with a bunch of things compeleted. Only downside is its hard to advance seeing as youre on contract and i would want something more permenant.
Lunch near a food court, early start and off time so missed traffic.

I worked for Siemens LaserWorks for a long time. This company sponsored me and my family to come here to Canada back in 2006. I enjoyed working there with great people. Safety was a big thing out there, which is great for workers. We had supportive management and good benefits.

Laser Operators helper (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 18 September 2015
This was the first Job I had outside of camp and i learned a lot of lessons at it. Although I feel that I didnt get a fair shake at this job, for the most part it taught me the importance of working hard.
CNC Operator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 September 2015
12 hour days, typical day is organizing programs and material to be cut as brought to us by our shift boss. I advanced at a comfortable rate. The hardest part was communication, as there wasn't particularly much of it, at least progressively, but you have to try when you can. The part I enjoyed most was proper progressive learning about the job and productivity.
4 on 4 off work schedule
Very very hot and dusty work environment, especially in summer
Substation Engineer (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 20 August 2015
All departments are working against each other. There is no synergy between divisions. The company is very top heavy. Too much management, not enough employees. Coworkers are working hard to make it work. Working from home reduces commuting stress.

Flexible work hours Understand and commit. Top level management is open for discussion. Nice colleagues. Nothing hard. Some individual wave length matching matters. Highly flexible. Real multi culture is missing in some parts.
