Productive place, teaches you responsibility, and work ethic among other beneficial attributes
Vegetation management technician (Former Employee) – Western Canada (operated out of Nisku, Alberta) – 8 February 2019
Very enjoyable job. The only part that wasn't fantastic was living out of a hotel all summer, but with the 12 hour days, it's not much of a problem. The staff, and management I found were fantastic. You meet a lot of excellent people. The best part for me was the experience that I got. Prior to starting work, you are put through 2 weeks of training, in which you receive multiple tickets that help you with future job prospects. The company invests roughly 3500$ per person to make sure you know safety, and how to do your job. The work is not demanding at all, the days are just long. But longer days I find are better. You're always busy which makes the day go by faster. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are paid for too which is a huge bonus, so you get to save your money quite well. The pay, with overtime, is excellent. You're only working for 4 months during the summer, so these long hours are certainly doable, the summer goes by fast. As a student, I made more than enough money to cover tuition and housing. Overall, this job was an excellent opportunity to develop skills, and experience for future endeavors. I highly recommend working here, as it will ultimately be beneficial to your future, and it is very enjoyable as far as work goes.
