hard days work
Heavy Equipment Technician (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB2 May 2017
Had a 6-4:30 shift, worked on a variety of equipment. diesel generators, small and very large trailers, vac trucks, dump/long/ short haul trucks. The culture there was enjoyable, every one worked together and communicated well. The down side to the job was the distance to get tools, was at the opposite end of the shop. the best part of the job was the large bays, the correct tool for every job.
Pros
monthly bar b q
Cons
very long building

Having worked with this company from 2013 to 2015 I can say I enjoyed working with them, They were a great bunch of people. The company benefits were very good. The pay was good. The office staff were fantastic. Had the economy not taken a dive I'm sure I would still be working for them.

Hard work and long hours during working

Really long hours, good pay, didn't feel overly organized. Wasn't the friendliest work environments. But thats probably what you get for being with a construction company

great company to work for, lots of training and great people
General Labourer (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB6 July 2016
a typical day at Sureway is usually busy, either out in the field operating or on the ground performing labourer tasks. my time at Sureway I went from knowing nothing about construction and road building to learning how to operate some equipment. Management was stern but fair. they would always be there to listen and to answer an questions I would have. the job as a labourer is hard more often then not but you had co-workers to assist you if you need it.

Decent
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Alberta27 May 2016
Good place to start if you're new to the industry. You might move up every now and then, but then you'll plateau and that's when you should move on. Like any other construction company, there are bad apples. Communication is really bad between the rungs of the ladder. Some Foremen are excellent, others are just terrible communicators and have their little cliqs and exclude the rest. Schedules can range from 6-1, 10-4, 24-4. Heavy turnaround at times. You never know when an opportunity will come up.
Pros
Get experience, become well rounded employee, lots of OT
Cons
Long hours, long days in the hot or cold, bad communication
