APPRENTICE ELECTRICIAN (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – December 27, 2013
I was a 1st and 2nd year apprentice while working for this company. My typical day was helping anyone who needed it and learning what I could about the trade. I got to learn many different aspects of my job and as a 2nd year I was given the opportunity to run a small crew doing slab work on a tower downtown. The company liked what I did and offered – more... to have me run the slab crews on their next tower once I got out of school as a 3rd year. My co-workers were helpful and friendly in my learning processes. The hardest part of my job was being thrown into situations that I had never seen before and being told that I was the one that had to figure it out, make it work, and make it up to code and standards for the company and job. It was a struggle at times, only being a 2nd year, but it forced me to learn very quickly how to do things correctly and efficiently. The most enjoyable part about the jobs was learning new things. – less

Trotter is a great company to work for they pay very well and generally they are the top paying company in town. They like large jobs, which can be taken either way. Just work show up have a good attitude and you'll be fine.

Cons: thinking there was room for opportunity.
My first job with Trotter & Morton was a great experience, it really led me to believe they were an employee oriented type company. That was not the case by the second job. Their layoffs tactics were ambiguous to say the least and the game of favorites really stood out. Little opportunity to move up within this company. I learned very little in comparison – more... to other companies and worked with Trotter for a longer period. Decent pay but that's about it. – less
