Low production overall, too easy going
Red seal carpenter (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC21 May 2014
The job was a renovation, it is a large school wanting to keep the heritage title.

A typical day can vary from demo to forming or framing and demo. During this job I learned the basics of shear walls and how to use the berk forming system.

The co-workers were generally nice.

As for management well, a second foreman was needed to pick up production, moral was extremely low enough said.

The hardest part of working with this company is the fact that the gift of the gab seems to get you further than being clever and putting in an honest days worth of work.

The variety of this job and all the problems that needed to be solved was most enjoyable.
Pros
The odd free lunch
Cons
Zero job security regardless of your production and skill

Don't expect too much from this company!
Carpenter (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BC20 January 2019
The most positive day you will ever work with this company will be on your last day!

There is little to no direction given by superintendents and foremen, they rely heavily on lead hands, no morning tool box meetings, Easter egg hunts for materials, unable to manage good use of great workers, safety is only exercised when beneficial to company (no stand downs after major incidents), quality of tools are about average as most other job sites, and worst of all no direct deposit on paycheques. As for construction companies to work for and trust I would look otherwise.
Pros
its not Farmer Construction
Cons
everything

By far the worst company I've ever worked for
Carpenter (Former Employee) –  Victoria BC29 October 2018
I can't name a single good thing about this company, they treat you like dogs. They are one of the worst employers in North America, choose literally any union employer instead.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Literally everything
