Awesome work environment. Good job, you can truly feel accomplished.
Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Fraser Valley Regional District, BC20 June 2017
I've worked here for almost 5 years and have loved it. I've seen students friends and people just looking for experience all come here and leave happy and better equipped for their next stage of life. Since I've started I've had the opportunity to advance my education with things from first aid and irrigation tech to fruit tree pruning workshops. The boss wants people to better them selves, from students looking for a summer pay check to parents providing for there families. There always possible upgrades and a friendly work environment. The worst thing about this job is living in bc where it's always a battle against the rain.
Pros
A medical fund. Training allowance. Phone allowance for leads.
Cons
Uncertain end times. Working in the rain or snow

Great group of guys!
Landscaper/Operator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB10 January 2017
This company is a great company to work for is you are into long hours, hard physical labor, and operating skid steers. The guys are helpful, easy going and determined to get the job done right with amazing results!

Fair work environment, lacks supportive knowledgeable management
Equipment Operator/Labourer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB9 December 2016
Typical workday was versatile, different tasks as the day progresses. Learned valuable trades, time management, and leadership skills. Management is the biggest downfall in the company, poor communication among themselves and field staff as well as management positions left vacant were filled by new employee's or under qualified bodies, very little promotion from within for those who are willing to take necessary action. Hardest part of the job would be differentiating between management hostility or constructive criticism.

A stepping stone to improve your resume, not a career.
Landscaper (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, ON31 January 2015
Disorganised. 12+ hour days with no overtime, 6 days a week. If there is benefits they're nothing to write home about. The one owner is a good guy, but the other owner is a moron.

Every morning you're supposed to do one of those corney forced company cheer things. You'd think you were working as an engineer and not cutting grass the way they talk about their work sometimes.
Pros
Work outside
Cons
Long hours, one co-owner is a jerk
