fast pace and a ton of responsibility, not for everyone but i enjoyed the time i had there. Not for the family man/woman as it requires extended absence from home.

Management makes a lot of promises when hiring, but fails miserably right after. When your around the “higher” supervisory positions, you will find out they talk about everyone behind their backs and don’t have the proper experience to talk to individuals and keep opinions to themselves. As far as work goes, the work is ok and guys are good. However the work is go hard when it’s there but if it slows down you sit and they won’t communicate when they have work. You have to always be on top of them to keep getting the work.
Management makes more mistakes then the guys learning the jobs. People hired are there because they need bodies

I would still be working for Davaco if they had consistent projects, but they often go 3 months to a year without jobs.
Working for Davaco entails working on the road, travelling a lot and only being home for 4 days a month a lot of the time. I would only recommend this job to someone who is looking for away from home work, that compensates well. If you have a family with kids this job may be difficult.

Also the work is often during night time, and extremely stressful as jobs have extremely strict deadlines and often pose many challenges. If you are fast and effective at solving problems, motivating people and doing clean, efficient work then you will thrive in this job.
Pros
Paid expenses, lots of hours, reasonable management, variety of work
Cons
Long hours, working away from home, night time shifts

Fast paced work with tight deadlines servicing the food and beverage industry at that time I was there. Some work was simply trade oversight. Other trades hired did poor quality work, management at the company was disorganized and treated employees poorly. Pay was great but the headaches suffered from management were not worth it. Good gig I suppose if you are single as I was then.

Canadian side of davaco is a joke the man running the show is a big alcoholic who just screams orders with no knowledge of what he is screaming about.

Grateful to have gotten the experience but was happy to leave. Upper management needs to be restructured. Very weak morale compasses and shady. They need to recognize the staff that execute work, not hoard success.

working with lots of different trades around Canada. A day at Davaco could be putting up racking to remodling a bathroom. The hardest part of the job was travling away from family.

Mostly construction and carpentry projects Canada wide.

The lessons learned are Construction operations, Safety, requirements, laws, carpentry and masonry applications.


Passive Management


In the past were involved electrical and electronic based projects were my competency was highly required but now not anymore.


The team/teams is competent and great as long as they are committed to work as a team.


The hardest part of the job is dealing with traveling, long hours and various risks along the way.


The most enjoyable part of job is the completion of all projects after all the hard work and sacrifice.
Pros
Good salary and benefits
Cons
Long hours and a lot of traveling involved

Load truck for delivery.I learned alot of new city streets,acoss Ontario.Management was great ,always helpful,always looked for your input about your job to make it easier. Co-workers also great and willing to go the extra distance to help. Some people would say the length of time on the road is the hardest,but I quite enjoyed it. The best part was staying overnite in a city you have yet to discover.
Pros
hotels and meals expensives covered by company.
Cons
not the best hourly rates but not the worst.
