Productive and lots of training

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

Pros

Good benefits, decent starting pay, lots of training opportunities

Cons

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 .

Pros

Money

Cons

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.

Pros

lots of hours and good pay.

Cons

dangores.

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.

Big corp. Not an easy company to work for but neither the hardest. Their product has a terrible smell to it. It can make you want to vomit. Lots to learn in a big company like this.

Not enjoyable

Management figures are either clueless or a complete psycho work drivers. No balance between life and work. Prepare for your life to be sucked away by this company. They own you completely.

Pros

Salary is ok. Lots to learn. Busy

Cons

Long hours with no overtime, bad management, little career direction, little explanation of work
