Don’t waste your time!
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB21 April 2019
Terrible place to work, bad morale, long term employees say place is going down hill due to poor management. They will lie to you and break promises to get you to hire on. They’re trying to pinch pennies in the wrong ways, yet they waste money when it benefits management. New hires don’t get treated the same as long term employees, they get “grandfathered” into different rules. Save yourself they stress and don’t waste your time with Aecon.
Pros
Great guys to work with... non-management employees
Cons
Management sucks

Good company to work for but under some management you are over worked and under paid. It really is the people you work with closely that make the job more exciting.

I would avoid
Lead Hand (Supervisor) (Former Employee) –  Sherwood Park, AB24 August 2018
Every employee is expendable at anytime not matter how long you have worked there, management has no clue how to run the company and get rid of the good workers and keep the brutal ones.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
pay

Pipefitter (Former Employee) –  Bethune, SK5 October 2017
Work was great but like all construction jobs, we worked ourselves out of a job. I hope that K+S Potash Canada decides to expand this mine. The Local 179 Pipefitters and Welders Union did a wonderful job.
Pros
The free lunches at the camp were great
Cons
Those who chose to travel daily were not very well compensated
