Poor owners
Not worth writing about. Did way to much and was under paid for what responsibility I had. I also was 24 hour emergency call for the alarm system. When your not respected for the job you did hard to stay positive.

Needs big improvements
Company cuts lots of corners especially on vehicle maintenance. Need to upgrade their aging fleet.
Extreme use of drugs by some employees seem to slip past management.

Decent place to work
I had a good time working there. The environment was good. I would’ve stayed if I didn’t hurt my back.
Management was understanding of my need to quit as my back affected my ability to perform.
Pros
Great management and coworkers.
Cons
Very hard work and unpredictable hours.

this company is an absolute joke
If you are looking for a decent job and to be respected or appreciated for working hard, better look somewhere else. You will waste your time here, they will promise you things that they wont keep. Guaranteed.
Pros
if you smoke cigarettes
Cons
bad management, hysterical drivers and bad equipment

Very unsafe place to work
This company was a scary place to work at. It may be different now. I would talk to some employees that are working there now to be sure it has changed. They are also very stingy with there salaries. I worked there as a shipper/receiver for over a year at minimum wage and was refused a raise.
Pros
People were great to work with.
Cons
Wages way to low for the work done.

Great work / life balance
Enjoyable workplace. Some of the work is performed outdoors. I love to work in the fresh air and get some exercise. Head office does not micromanage its employees. I get a chance to meet and work with various tradespeople of the community.

It is a job in which you get paid but
Everyone is paid the same no matter what extra jobs you do. The more you do the more that is expected from you. This would be fine if you are rewarded for the extra work but you are not. Management has no idea how to talk to people and the only time they want to talk is to blame you for something that went wrong or is broke. Manitiance can not keep up with aĺl that is expected of them. They talk big about a lot of things but treat people like garbage.
Pros
Was able to try out different tasks so able to learn new skills.
Cons
Management loves to watch cameras located all over the plant as a full time job., No training and they do not like to pay for anything. It is up to you to learn new new skills.

Small, over worked environment.
The jobs themselves were simple and easy to understand. However the management has a bad habit of making a LOT of promises to the employees that they can't keep.

productive and comfortable work place
Best job i ever had. I believed i was good at what i did. Sad that i got let go. I have tried to reapply. I would do anything to have my spot back at acadia.
My biggest struggle while working with Acadia was because i lived alone, my wife and kids left me and my parents would not talk to me. I was rich and lonely.

If i was to sum up Acadia Drywall in one word.. mismanaged
Typical day at Acadia Drywall consisted of earlier morning calls from drivers regarding issues with trucks to problems with location for material drop off.. then once in office issues with production equipment to building problems due to lack of proper maintenance by ownership and previous operations managers.
Pros
good team
Cons
ownership

I enjoyed coming to work, got along very well with co-workers. Appreciated the extra responsibilities, including supervision of assistant.
I was always on time, appreciated the overtime, and loved the driving. I was hired under the premise that I would be trained along the way. That was a big draw for me - the opportunity of advancement.

The Management changed within a month of starting the position and brought in their own people who quickly replaced new hires.
