Fast paced, dangerous

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
If your eager and willing to apply yourself, and enjoy fast-paced work, you can do well. Every single day you can endure very dangerous circumstances working in the man holes, not really for the faint of heart. Some co-workers were excellent, some were horrible characters and absolutely brown-nosed the head superintendent.

Good place to work tons of fun and learn lots. You get great bonuses every month on top of your paycheck. One of the best part would be the payed 10 day off a year.

Horrible management, treat people like garbage. Don’t know what hours you are gonna work every week. Got laid off for 3 weeks because no work. Bad company

Negative work place, management will make you push aside safely protocols to get the job done

I have worked there for 3 years meany people have died doing this job at this company I strongly recommend you never work here they talk a big game about safety but when it comes down to it your forced to risk your life in the name of production.


Stable job


Long hour’s cannot leave till the job is done, its like high school with all the drama and the talking behind peoples backs

Good if you’re single or have an older family and can be gone for long periods of time

Worked for Insituform part of the aegion group, all the guys were nice and fairly easy to get along with, laid back work, more time spent sitting in the truck on your phone than anything else, way more out of town work than originally mentioned during interview worked there for 5 months spent 4 of the 5 months in hotels, can’t raise a young family working that way, lots of work but slow paced environment


Free lunch once a month, stay in some cool places, easy to get along with the guys, lots of hours


Too much out of town work

Productive and lots of training

The hardest: Stacking liners in back of truck can be very physically and demanding especially if you have to do a transferring of liner into another truck.I learned that taking the extra 5 minutes can save the company time and money. Plus if you dont know how to do something ask a fellow coworker.


Good benefits, decent starting pay, lots of training opportunities


Can be long hours during peak production shift can be 15 hours, work can be daunting if you havent worked a manual labor job before

Edmonton wet out facility is not good

Management is lacking to say the least , you will feel very unwanted . It’s fast and physical , way more mental stress then is needed . Things get promised or said that aren’t fulfilled. Also a lot of talking behind backs .




Bad management, headaches not worth the wage

not very good place to work.

do not work for this company in Winnipeg. they give you false promises and swear that they have lots of work and money to be made in Winnipeg but the truth is they make you work 21 days on 7 days off and they expect you to teach yourself everything. the crew that works in Winnipeg are all racist and unwilling to teach new people. there main office is located in Edmonton and they don't care about people who live in Winnipeg. they only want to use you to make a buck on their end.

Insituform Cares

I received more tickets and safety training from this company then one can imagine. Pays great. Its not a job for everyone but if you are a hard worker and love money and can handle long hours with travel, than this is the place for you.

Rewarding work enviroment.

start work at 7 AM and start by walking around my truck to do my pre trip. Meet with the supper attendant and go over the work day ahead and end the meeting by doing the required stretching so I don't pull or hurt any muscles. After that we drive to the location where the work is to be done and set up the equipment. after a 10 to 12 hour day we take down the equipment and drive back to the job. I end my day by doing my post trip and filling in my log book. I have learned that safety is most important aspect of the job. Also learned the hazards and danger of the job and how to do the job the safe and right way. The management team does a great job in schooling us on any questions or concerns pertaining to the job or task on hand. everyone works in a team mind frame. The hardest part of the job is when your away from home for a long time. the most enjoyable part of the job is when we have completed a job for a client and the client is satisfied with the results.


lots of hours and good pay.

Driver- labour

Preform pre-trip and log book after inspecting truck. Talk to manage to be inform of job location(s) for that day. Drive to location, help crew unload equipment to perform job. Help with installing new pipe for sewers in many cities and towns. When job is total complete to upmost satisfactory and video documented, we load up trucks. And off to new location or yard. Great working with this crew, very educational and satisfying. The most enjoyable part of this job is travelling, and being able to go as far as Edmonton Alberta ,and also British Columbia for many weeks. Complete all paperwork daily.
