Was employed with Alberta Glass for just under a year. Most of the personnel working there have good attitude. The majority of my foreman were knowledgeable and had a good teaching attitude for new employees.
I learned a lot about the trade and enjoyed working with many of the people employed there.

If you have a good attitude and a good work ethic, you will do fine.

I have learnt many things from the people in this company. The project manager, estimator and coordinator are friendly. The branch that I worked in was smaller than the head office. This made us all work as a team.

This company supports fat management and lazy foremen willing to destroy and flip flop good glaziers for minimal gains. Calgary branch is filled with adolescents with poor hygiene.
Pros
Good equipment
Cons
Wasteful and lack luster PMs

Alberta glass is a good company, just didn't have enough work in the north to keep all staff working. T o bad I liked working there.
Maybe they will get more work in the north to be able to keep the good staff.

It was a great place to work back in 2008-2010. Then one of the owners was bought out of the company and it all went downhill from there. They lost about 100 employees in a year and the office turn around was terrible. The owner micro manages everything way too much and there are at least 2 or 3 managers per department and some departments only have 2-3 employees.

Since there are SOOO many managers the communication between departments and field techs is the worst i've ever encountered and there are way too many office staff in ratio to feild techs.


They lost most of their service clients and i would not be suprised if the service department soon becomes obsolete.


The compensation used to be good until they stopped given raises and bonuses and had a company wide wage reduction. But the benefits are the best i've ever seen.


I would strongly suggest not wasting your time with this company as you will be quite disappointed.
Pros
benefits
Cons
most stressful place i've ever worked at!!!!
