7 nights on and 7 days off. The schedule is nice and the wage is worth it for the work required. Good group of coworkers and management. The job requires a lot of driving.

Very stable job, great coworkers, fun environment.
Operator/Labourer (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB13 May 2016
Going into work you never know what your day with consist of, some days may be harder then others.

Working as a sub contractor for the provincial government gives employees a comfortable feeling know that they have good job Securement.

Management may favour employees who are hard workers and strive to move up in the company vs people who aren't/don't.

Great work life balance as you technically work 6 months out of year and have 6 months off. (Depending on your position; area of work. Not all employees are on the schedule but most are.)

Very friendly employees, great foremans and open door policy to the front off.

Great benefits with Merit Contractors Association, Rrsp match dollar for dollar up to a certain amount.

This company has there negatives just like any other company, but all in all is a very good company to work for, especially if you are starting out in the industry.
Pros
Friendly coworkers, great foremans, 7 on 7 off in town work, decent pay.
Cons
Lack of sleep when working due to long hours, zero overtime, management may tell you what you want to hear.

good place to work if you can put up with babysitting
Concrete Finisher (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB6 November 2015
carmacks is a good place to work but has poor structure and very little leadership it seems like the more you do the worse you are treated. you cant be fired by a forman all you have to do is call the superintendent and you have your job back. if you try to show leadership and inishitive more is expected of you and if you refuse to keep pushing even though every one else slacks off you are looked down apon, good place to work other then that decent wage, you can keep in good shape. but make sure you get promises in writeing
Pros
good hours ride to work decent wage
Cons
long hours, lots of driving if you pass drug test and class 5
