Ive had alot of safety training and equipment training, and i am much more knowledgeable about the day to day procedures that occure in a construction orriented work place.
Good place to work with dependable workmates and flexible management
Foreman (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 11 August 2016
Work here could be difficult and, at times, dangerous. A lot of time is spent underground in stations or in sewers. You are in the heat in the Summer and cold in Winter around machinery and gases. However, the training and concerns about safety override any real danger. You are working with well trained individuals from crews under you to crews assisting you on jobs. Management is well educated and trained. They tend to work as much as part of the crew as they do management. Should there be problems they were helpful.
There can be complications between coworkers who can not manage to work effectively together, but with consequences of aggressive behaviour only being taken into action once someone is hurt. Miscommunication between employers and employees can cause hassles during the job and develop frustrations, which includes gossip. But with a healthy mindset, being patient and respectful to coworkers and employees, and avoiding conflict, you will be guaranteed a great work experience.
Great breaks and understanding of individual's needs
Overall, I believe they have an amazing work environment.
INDIGENOUS PUBLIC INFORMATION ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 30 May 2016
I'm speaking particularly to their Indigenous Relations Division. It is one of the healthiest work environments I have ever worked at. The team is so supporting for all its members and Indigenous youth who come onboard as work placements and interns.

Instructor/Guard III (Former Employee) – winnipeg mb – 22 May 2015
Spent a long time at this employer!! Great co-workers, didnt seem to get paid a great deal for what was asked of us (public relations, safety, etc), Worst part of job was dealing with management and getting time off when needed..
lifeguard and swimming instructor (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 14 April 2015
A typical day at my job involves opening the building, checking the AED trauma bags, and testing the pool deck alarms. The management is friendly and are willing to help their employees. The co-workers are always very friendly and make the work place a good place to work. The hard part of the job is when dealing with angry patrons that take their frustration on one person/the facility. For situations like that you have to always remember to keep a friendly face and smile. Also, you must remember to take your time and do your best to help with any problems or situations at hand.
Executive & Special Assistant (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 10 February 2015
Working in a political office can be both fun and painful at the same time.
Fun tended to be when left alone to develop unique advertising for the Councillor as well as developing policy positions to be used both in Council as well as in Committees.
The less enjoyable was the 100+ emails and phone calls from residents of the ward, members of the public service, and other individuals received on a daily basis. All of these contacts have to be responded to in a timely and intelligent manner, regardless of how intelligent or personality challenged they may be.
Other work involved maintaining the Councillor's website, keeping the office clean, and keeping the Councillor out of trouble.
