Commercial electrical apprentice in Calgary, AB
on 6 January 2020
Dont work here!
Don't value hard work, only promote suck ups who sit around and chat to foreman. Does not follow Electrical Journeymen to Apprentice ratio 2 to 1 within Alberta, Will place hard working apprentices on the same task for months without the possibility of change. No Professionalism within the company, If you work here have a thick back and be prepared to hear a lot of unprofessional language.

Big electrical contractor with a large network of jobs
Custom Electric is a large electrical contractor with a big network of connections to draw work from. They have a competitive bidding process that allows them to bid on large and interesting jobs.I worked at this company for many years and got an incredible amount of work experience through residential, commercial, and service. Any time I asked for more responsibility or a different avenue for experience they worked at helping me attain those goals.The companies safety program is extraoridnarily deep with many trade professionals working on developing it and maintaining it including NCSO's. I do believe they wanted everyone to go home safely at the end of each day.I don't think everyone had the same experience as me, but every person is different and a company this size may not be able to cater to every single person and their own individual desires and goals.The hardest part of this company was during down times, or "layoff" times nearing the end of jobs, working to stay off the "layoff" list was pretty stressful as most people had no idea where they stood in terms of employee reviews. However if you keep your head down, work efficiently, and maintain a positive attitude, they will do their best to keep you employed as the cost of keeping an employee who is well trained is less than hiring and training a new one.I really enjoyed a lot of the personalities on job sites, getting to know fellow crew was always a great time. I got along with every foreman and superintendant I worked with as well, and although interactions with Project Managers was minimal, they were pleasant or politely ignored you.

The worse electrical company I’ve ever worked
The worse place I’ve ever worked. Very toxic environment and most of the employees feel so unhappy working here. You are treated like trash and I've seen guys getting lay off in the middle of the day just because the foreman was having a bad day.You see new faces all the time, nobody stays here for too long.

Standard electrical trade experience
I worked here in 2012. I was fired because an apprentice damaged a compressor. The management was very immature and some swore extensively making a very intimidating atmosphere. They threw my harness training certificate in the garbage after I was fired and I could not receive it. They did have a safety meeting every morning which was appreciated.

Great place to work and advance
Custom is a great company to work for. It is just like any other job, you need to go to work with a good attitude. If you want to work they will treat you good. I had no issues working at custom electric. In the year and a half that I worked there I was on multiple different types of jobs which taught me a lot of different skills required to do commercial and residential electric work. What I would tell anybody starting at custom electric is.. go to work and do your job. They want to teach anybody who wants to learn. It’s is the same with any company. Yes, there were times that I was annoyed with my job but if you have worked for a company and not been annoyed there is something wrong.
