Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB31 October 2016
Early Start and late finishes are a normal with Sureway. Sureway takes really good care of their employees and has great ethics. Very organized in job practices and procedures. They keep employees as long as they can before layoffs.
Pros
Flexable time off to have family time
Cons
Hard work and long hours during working

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

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.

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

Rough way to earn a Living
Grounds Person (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB22 January 2016
Wake up before dawn, in the colder months go home in darkness. It was a typical construction job. My coworkers were rough individuals and difficult to get along with. A lot of "tough-guy" attitudes, although sensitive to any rebuke.
I learned how to endure being outside in almost any condition. Worked outside in almost any weather, except for extremes like pouring rain, lightning and -40 cold.
I learned how to keep a consistent schedule of getting up at 5am and working all day, only to get home and do it all again. I learned a lot of safety protocols and the basics of operating equipment.
There were a lot of expectations of "get it done" and often projects with poor planning. Be halfway through a task, then have to restart because the instructions were wrong. Or given a task without being given proper instruction.
I figured out how to deal with judgmental, temperamental and all around difficult people. I can handle anyone now.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Long Hours, Construction Worker culture

Hard work with very little reward
Mechanic/Lube Technician (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB3 November 2015
Worked 5 am to anywhere from 4 pm onward. all the way to 10 pm. We worked 14 on and 3 off, long hours. The pay was alright, but mostly due to the fact of the ludicrous hours/overtime you would accumulate. Boss was not a very well mannered/social boss that one would want in charge of a large group of people. Personal skills were not prominent.

Lots of backstabbing and elitist behavior when it came to the mechanics. If you "smelled' funny, you were shunned and eventually moved out of the shop.
Pros
overtime, 1 free lunch a month, good people
Cons
Long hours, "politics", favoritism over hard work
