service Technician (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 January 2018
Sureway is a great company to work for if you are just starting out in the workforce as their can be lots of opportunities to learn and excel. also a great place if you are looking to make quick money. Most desirable thing about this company for me was that they are not penny pinchers. You are provided with everything to make your job easy and safe as possible. Only downfall is the work/life balance.
Operator/Driver (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 17 September 2017
Overall a great company. The seasonal work and unassurance of whether or not we work is hard to deal with. the long hours make the days hard to deal with when you work days in a row. However the foreman are understanding and the coworkers are kind and super helpful. It was a pleasure working for them for the summer.

Heavy Equipment Technician (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 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.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 1 April 2017
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.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 31 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.
Great people. Great company. If you're serious about advancement they'll facilitate. Just a lot of hours for work/life balance.
Foreman (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 26 October 2016
Sureway is a great company. If you're serious about advancimg up the chain, they will facilitate and help you to earn more opprotunities. They work a lot of hours and nearly every day in the summer. Lay offs come every winter, around November/December time.
QA/QC Coordinator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 24 August 2016
I spend three years worked with Sureway in a project. Gain a lots of experience and get chance to know so much talented people. This company treat people very well, only problem is a lot of the job is seasonal.
great company to work for, lots of training and great people
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 6 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.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Alberta – 27 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.
Get experience, become well rounded employee, lots of OT
Long hours, long days in the hot or cold, bad communication
