This company is great to work for. As big as they are, they treat you very well. Working out of town I had a family emergency and they had me on an Air Canada flight within 2 hours.

Upper management completely out of touch with industry. Same story as anywhere else, head office makes unilateral changes to justify their bloated salaries, regardless of impact on front line workers, they focus only on numbers and not on customer service or taking care of employees. Most management are hired because of corporate compatibility rather than industry experience. There is no formal training. Vehicles and equipment are rarely serviced, maintenance is up to the workers. Prepare to be frustrated beyond belief most days. Some staff members are really great, some of who smile at their co-workers and trash talk them behind their back. This should be a last resort. Pros Home daily Cons Sporadic overtime, no communication, old equipment, lack of proper tools, no training, too many snakes in the pit!

Chemco is a great place to work. They have employee incentives that give you a point a week to be cashed in for merchandise. Management is typically well trained.

they supplied a culture like anywhere, with values and safety aspects. Only issue I had here was that it was a bit much for me waiting for another job, even though I was told I would most likely be hired again. Met some great people!

The job was great and the co-workers were great, but the current owners are not. They care more about saving the company money than taking care of their employees. They provide the minimum amount of PTO, if that, they pay minimum wage to most of their employees, they do not offer a 401K, and they only offer to pay for half of your medical premium. They don't follow the employment laws, and if you try to talk to them about it, they get mad and act like they know everything. They are in the process of selling the company, but the sale has been in process for over a year now, and could be in process for another year or more.

Good company to work for. Usually keep you steady with work. Upper management seemed pretty fair and reasonable with time required to complete tasks.

Chemco is a great company to work for. As long as you show up every day that your scheduled, and do your job you will do fine. Foreman’s, GFs and superintendents were great to work with and for. I spent 5 plus years working for this company.
Pros
Great group of people to work with and for
Cons
Safety is getting a little crazy

Great People, Amazing managers, approachable in every way, Job security is low, but so is any job in the trades we all know that, and it should not be held against the company at all.
