Foreman/Supervisor in Langley, BC
Good luck finding a better landscape companyThe owner of this company is the best employer I have had in my life. Blue Pine offers competitive wages for the industry with plenty of opportunities for advancement. Hard working, resilient, and dedicated individuals will excel quickly in thier careers. If your looking for a place to just put in time and collect a cheque I would recommend going elsewhere. People need to understand that this is physically demanding job. That doesn't mean anyone ever expects a person to injury themselves working. What it means is after a day a labour your muscles will be tired just like a day at the gym. Your body will become conditioned to the work. It's the same as any work place with physical labour. I have not seen anyone come through in over 10 years of service that did the above mentioned characteristics and not excel. As far as anyone else well..... keep

Terrible company. Terrible management. TerribleI worked here for three months that felt like an eternity. Every supervisor I was met with was hard to work with and often forced you to stay for overtime even if it wasn't wanted. Nowhere in the job description did it say mandatory overtime.

Best company Ive ever worked forI had to unfortunetely leave Blue Pine, due to some injuries in my shoulders. But this has got to be, the best company in the Lower Mainland. I was fighting myself to leave, but the labour is a lot for my body. I dont say this to discourage anyone though, It was my own fault. Micro breaks and rest are important when it comes to job like this. And letting your ego get in your way.. can result in.. injuries. So I have learned from that all too well. This job has an incredible variety. When you first start at Blue Pine, you may be in softscape, or hardscape. They will more than likely switch it up for you a few times to see what fits you best. You learn something new every, single. Day! And they are VERY happy to put you in any courses that they offer, all you have to do is email HR. The entire staff at Blue Pine has done so much for me than I could have ever asked for. The workload, though it was a lot, it made it all worth it. I would reccomend this job to anyone looking for outside work, variety, and opportunties to grow. Get your machine liscenes, get on the safety comittee. Go to the christmas parties, the rafting and camping events. I am going to miss this company SO much.
They are awful, clique, and support negitive work environments . Dangerous happenings get laughed at and creative thinking gets ridiculed.Worked there for 2 years. Saw many unsafe activities daily. Drug use and harassment a regular. Didn't suck up so was never considered for a promotion. Huge red flag was when they weren't paying me for travelling 4 hours a day for a "temporary" work assignment that last 2 different sites and about 6 months before I couldn't take it.
Great companyAs an employee, I have nothing negative to say. I work in the field and have learned something valuable almost everyday on the job. Everyone I've met, from the office to the field, has been welcoming and respectful. Even with more than 150 employees they find ways to include us all, whether it be the monthly bonus program for labourers, photo contests to win BluePine swag or the cash bonus for referring a friend to be hired. This company has impressed me through and through.
