Fine Place to Work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Workload can be stressful at times. Company has loads of great benefits and there are a lot of great people to work around. There are not many opportunities for growth.

Pros

Team lunches, benefits, wellness program, great managers

Cons

Long hours in estimating department at times

Good, could be better

Teams are under-resourced making jobs more difficult than they should be. There are so many great people on teams, that may not have the opportunity to realize their full potential. Executive leadership seems out of touch.

Pros

competitive salary, interesting opportunities

Cons

leadership, workloads unmanageable

Even through covid always had work as road construction is essential. Long hours and lots of overtime.

Decent company, good benefits. Lots of hours but is seasonal. Good opportunities to learn different equipment can make a life long career out of it if you want.

Pros

Good supervisor, good entry level opportunities

Cons

Long hours, working outside.

One of the best companies to work for, I wished they didn't sell there mining division to North American.Enjoyed working with the scheduling department.

Abusive Supervisor

Do not work for this company if you're a POC or care about integrity. Management and HR disregard employee complaints and management does not care about staff. They treat you like work horses and the Supervisor makes micro-aggressive comments on a weekly basis.

I love working here

Aecon has been a great company to work for. Management is nice, and easy to get along with which makes the moral high on the job. They treat you with respect. Lunch is often bought for the employees, it's a nice treat to show you're doing a great job.

You won't see your home but the pay cheques are nice

Work life balance is pretty limited but to be expected for road building. Great money and great people. The gear is in fairly good shape. Great way to see parts of Canada you'd never usually see! Not for everyone but if you can hack it you'll finish the season feeling accomplished

Plenty of work and overtime

Not a horrible place to work but if you want to further your career, it's not the best place unless you have a degree. No leadership a lot of the time.

Aecon provided yearly BBQ’s for the entire staff, at site during work. Awesome

Aecon was one of the best companies I have ever worked for. They treated each and every employee with respect and listened to all concerns. It’s not often that you hear roars of laughter coming from the bus 🚌 on our way to the worksite, but roars of laughter was indeed what you heard. There were actually people who would say, “why are you guys so happy at 6:00a.m., heading into work, we can hear laughter coming from your bus every day…who do you work for?

Great working culture, great people to work with.

The experience at Aecon is great in general, the company reacts quickly to COVID and allow employees to work for home with flexible hours they can choose. Very good relationships among all the colleagues so you don’t really get tired of working with them. The benefits are above average as well.

Pros

Flexible working hours, great benefits

Cons

Always need more new hires

Decent pay and fairly well easy work

Good for a first job, decent way to learn how to interact and assist customers. Flexible hours and good pay, the weather and constant walking is the only downside though.

Pros

Flexible hours

Cons

Weather

Good place to work.

No real issues. Read your contract carefully before you accept, especially if you are a non union contract employee. I have a great Project Manager that treats us fair, this makes it worth it.

Pros

Great Co-workers

Cons

Money could be a bit better

Good pay with good hours

Pipeline work, 10 hour shifts with traveling a fair distance. Unionized position with live out pay is more then enough. All the guys were great to work for.

Pros

Safety is priority

Cons

None

Long Hours during certain parts of the year

Level of stress is very dependent on which project you're assigned to and the associated deadlines. This varies year by year as well so prepare for some fluctuations
