Apprentice Electrician in Vancouver, BC
on 5 April 2021
Good place if all you want is steady work
AWSE is one of the many here that specialize in tower work. That means for most of the people you'll be stuck either in a suite doing plugs/switches all day for months or on slab for months AND THEN get placed into the suites to do plugs/switches.If you are an apprentice who gets placed in a suite or on slab on a big tower/multiple tower job then run. You will come out knowing nothing. During my 1st/2nd years it was fine as you are new to the industry and need experience but you'll come to a point where it's not worth it to not be learning anything. This goes for all the big tower companies like AWSE, Chambers, Nightinggale, allwest etc.The only times I've ever felt good and felt like I was progressing as an electrician was when a job was coming to an end and there was less than 10 people on site and there was odds and ends to finish. As an apprentice you want to come out with your ticket knowing various things and troubleshooting abilities and general knowledge about the trade, not how to tie coreline or run bx.I tried my hardest and I'd always be one of the last few on the jobsite but never got a chance to be taught as there was always someone who already knew more than me so the chances of working of new things were given to them. Guess that's what happens when you are in a massive company where you are just seen as a number. If you are new then this is a great place to start but I would recommend branching out as soon as you can. I learnt more in my first 3 months in my new job then I did my whole 2 years with AWSE. I want to learn and be a capable electrician for when I receive my TQ and I don't believe AWSE provided me with what I wanted out of a company

Company pays low and dont care about you
This company only cares about themselves I would never work here again. They keep people who are useless and don't know what there doing. Half the peopel show up late get paid a full day qnd nothing ever happens. They try to lie qnd scare you for there own benefit. This company is honestly the worst one I've ever worked for. You want a bunch of hacks that chart 5 times the cost of work for extras go with alpine west

One of the best Electricion company I’ve known in Canada
Extremely friendly people at work. Very good management and managers. Very good communication. When you have a question everyone is ready to answer and they don’t get tired of asking questions and they answer in a clear and friendly way. They pay on time and they help you out when you need them.

Strung up feeling no clear objectives
Higher up Management are clueless of what is going on in the frontline workers. Major disconnect in communication. Need quality control of supervisor oversight, since supervisors are slacking and blaming lower level personnel’s of their own mistakes.
