Management is highly disorganized and non collaborating
Cambridge facility was better than the Darlington Nuclear project. Workers are asked to take on new roles and responsibilities with little to no training.

Pipeline Labourer
Awesome place to work, make lots of money & learn and expand.
Only downside to pipeline is always being away from home.


If you like hotel life, using a company truck for work, working in a crew this job is perfect

Great Benefits. No employee relations
I have learned a lot in my time at Aecon. However lately they are very corporate. They don't listen to your opinion unless you are one of the elite .

Back Stabbing
I'm sure Aecon is a good company some places , but not in the lower mainland area of BC. Poor management can't accept responsibility, pass blame around. Hire buddies and fire or demote long term employees. They don't show any appreciation for the hard work you do to try and make the company look good. They don't care about workers. Management should be run off including inexperienced project managers. What a shame.

Fast Paced but Very Stressful
Work environment was very face-paced, always had something to due, but management made the job extremely stressful, as well as the job itself never had a sense of permanence, always felt like the end of the project would be the end of the job.

Horrible
Racist foreman, bad management , don’t care about their workers. Both straws drive 90k trucks cause daddy works as the manager of the project. HR guy on drugs. Will never work for this company ever.

Great team
My overall experience was great. I worked on two projects with them and thoroughly enjoyed them. Good people building great things.
The only thing I didn’t like was the inter division problems.

Help Desk
Not a bad place to work. Was let go after 3 weeks. Didn’t have high enough computer skills that matched what they needed. But everything took way to long from IT getting me set up to a computer arriving. Overall not a horrible experience just wish it could have been more collaborative than it was because I was willing to but in the effort to stay for the length of contract.
Pros
Decent environment
Cons
Too far, not enough money and lack of support

Not all Sunshine & Rainbows
Ok company honestly, but you may be surprised with your team, division, or business unit if offered a job.

The common claim you’ll hear during the interview period is that you’ll be “provided training”, but the reality is that you’re entirely on your own, and unless you insist and persist, you won’t go very far.


It’s a matter of favouritism, you’re a keeper if the “team” accepts you wholeheartedly, otherwise I advise searching elsewhere during your stay!
Pros
Salary, Hours, Company, People, A lot really
Cons
Deceitful & Two-Faced Individuals

Good company to work for but pay is low.
Pay- Need to get in line with comparative pay structure relating to the contribution industry.
Senior Management- There has been significant changes to the SMT over the past two years. I personally preferred the direction of the old management, but time will tell.

Direct Supervisor- I reported to an amazing individual.
