Cement Repair Worker (Former Employee) – Mitchell, ON – 22 March 2018
Pay and benefits were not too bad, nice raises were coming in each year, closed for a bit after Xmas (something I liked but others didn't), and because of the industry it is, it's not open weekends and holidays barring overtime days. Also no midnight shift...most of the time.
They fed us a bunch of times a year, gave us quality clothes and backpacks as well as a very helpful Holiday bonus gift card.
The January closures, which vary in length, can be hard financially on families.

its an alright place to start if you have no experience or are just starting out in the work force. You have to be a dedicated worker and not slack off if you want to prove yourself and get anywhere with the company even if that means working on the weekends

Labourer/Lead Hand (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 21 April 2017
It was a good job, only thing was there was constant lay offs every year. I need something that will not have as much lay offs in a year. But the place was good, I recommend it to starting guys looking to get into precast concrete.
Quality Control Technician / Acting Supervisor (Former Employee) – Alberta – 3 April 2017
management are not good at all, seems there was an unfair treatment to people in regards with integrity and quality of workplace in short there was a favoritism because either a relative of superiority works around the area.

wouldnt recommend if you have any shoulder problems or you want hired on right away. Dont go through temps , go in yourself.
General labourer (Former Employee) – Mitchell, ON – 27 March 2017
The time I spent there I had a great time. The time I spent trying to get hired on and be apart of the "team" was definitely not worth it. Temp agencies are great but you don't get paid the same as someone who got hired on off the street and you will spent a crazy amount of time and effort trying to get hired though a temp agency
