Good place to work for. The company provided training for all course required for working in the CSO position. The most enjoyable part of the job was interaction with the other employees who are out in the field.

Electrician (Former Employee) –  EdmontonFebruary 10, 2015
They say continuous work and peace of mind but it's a pipe dream they're selling. Laid me off saying they have no work and a few days later they're hiring again. No loyalty to hardworking guys. Unorganized, managements clueless and safety guy comes into work hung over.
Pros

Cons
everything! false promises and no integrity with management and company.
