A joke
Labourer/Lead Hand (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB4 February 2019
Where to start, upon being hired your fed so much nonsense to get you excited about what an amazing company this is and how everything will be performance based rather then seniority only to get to the field and see its all bs.
Little to no room to move up in this position, you have to supply all your own ppe, they want you in full fr year round also not supplied, sporadic work schedule. promises to give you promotions to get you to work harder they have no intention of giving you because the economy doesn't allow it. Overall horrible place to work

.
Pros
Paid training
Cons
30-40hr work week. Low wages. Read above

Horrible Company
Carpenter Foreman (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB22 January 2019
I wouldn’t work here if it was the last job available on the planet.
Management will ignore you , low moral, zero training and below average industry wages. I wasted1 year of my career with this under achieving company. What happeneds when the company is given to a snot nosed spoiled kid who hasn’t worked a day in his life.

Its a job
Operator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB9 June 2018
Payroll was inconsistent, safety went out the window when it interfered with productivity. Very little support from safety dept, expendable when it came to foreign workers, very cutthroat.
Pros
A job and a paycheck
Cons
Seeing the place in the rear view mirror when leaving.

Good business environment
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB9 April 2018
My role was isolated from the day to day operations of the business. Good benefits. The work environment was great - new building, easy to access, free parking.

Payroll Administrator (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB2 March 2016
Uploading of time and then processing the time. Payroll is paid bi weekly so any changes/additions to the payroll are worked on before the payroll begins. Day to day payroll queries. Hardest part of my job is getting employees to enter their time. Most enjoyable part is once the payroll is done and I know everyone has been paid correctly
Cons
No support from management

Respectable Company
HR Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB20 November 2012
Work is fast paced and challenging on a daily basis. I have learned about Commercial Construction and Utility construction. CANA has increased my knowledge about Human Resources, in depth details in regards to safety and the importance of trained, competent and qualified employees for the success of the company and individual advancement. The majority of the co-workers are team players and are fun and easy to work with. The hardest part of my job is successfully coordinating last minute requests and limited training space for internal training. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with the people.
Pros
family christmas party, free passes to spruce grove
Cons
long hours
