Former labourer, now an Electrician. Saw the job posting for an Electrician and laughed.
Labourer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 25 April 2014
You could not pay me enough money to work for these clowns again. The management was superficial and manipulative. They would have these plant meetings where they pretended to address your concerns, but as soon as anything of substance was brought forward, they would shut down the employee/employees responsible. My co-workers were great, but it's hard to enjoy work in the poisonous atmosphere this company fosters. The pace of work was brutal for the money you received, and not worth it in my opinion.
Karma is a funny thing, and a former manager of mine from this godforsaken company actually ended up underneath me as an apprentice. He was scared senseless that I was going to run him through the ringer, or just plain kick his butt, because he knew what a overbearing jerk he'd been. Fortunately for him, I'm a better person than that, and to be honest, had totally forgotten about him. I tend to do that with small people. Anyway, my point here is that this clown was a classic example of the type of management material that exists at SCM. The positive reviews you see on this site are those that haven't pierced the veil yet, and trust me, it takes awhile. I enjoyed the job for awhile until I began to see the lies for what they were. Anyway, the choice is yours, but you've been warned.
