The work was fun and engaging while the pay and benefits were excellent. However, the internal politics and backstabbing are constant and the new management team only made it worse. Before you had a expectation that someone else would try to make you look worse to make them look better. Now it's encouraged from senior leadership.

The lack of communication is incredible. The pay straight across the board is way below standard, unless your management. The benefit plan is a complete nightmare. And the BCGEU union that you pay hundreds of dollars a month too,is as useless as they come. And unless you are management there is no way to get away from the union.

I have been employed for 3 months and so far I have seen a great group of people trying to move the business forward. If you want to be part of change this is a good place to be right now. A lot of opportunity for someone who wants to show them what you are made of. The management teams are always looking for new opportunities and willing to support.

This company does not value their people. You will be thrown away once they are done with you.. they will pressure you to do work outside of your job description. They will treat you like garbage.. I do not recommend this company unless you are desperate for work..

Productive days keep me busy. I meet new people in the business which is always enjoyable. I realize it is tough to get in due to the old timers who have had those jobs for a lifetime. My most enjoyable part of the job is driving because it is what I love to do.
Pros
Love the challenge to work with new people who are willing to work with me.
Cons
People who have been there awhile. Look down on new people. It would be nice to be given a chance.

Hard working well experienced people. Safety is always first. If you don't know how to do something they do a great job teaching. Lots of opportunity for over time hours as well.

Safe workplace with some benefits and job security. Little chance for advancement. The chilcotin area is interesting to work in with very varied climate so can be challenging as a work place.

As a materials tester I took samples of hot asphalt and sand and gravel samples. We would work out of a small trailer style lab which were always hot. You usually would work out of town.

Interior Roads is a good company. It offers steady seasonal work with great wages and benefits for full-time permanent employees. However, the chances of advancement is practically nil. There are by far too many employees who should have retired long ago (after 30 - 40 years) to allow for the upcoming young people to advance.
Pros
Good wages
Cons
Next to no chance to advance

I learned a lot of important information about highway maintenance, how to care for the environment and realized a day at work with them is a hard days work for everybody.
Pros
A good pay is to work all day everyday and on weekends if needed.
Cons
Unprepared is not exceptable and tardiness is a no-no.

Various work days which kept it interesting and motivated to get up and go to work each day. Many opertunities to re educate of keep certificates updated , management was fair, the hardest part of the job was.... the physical aspects and strenghts that were required. The most enjoyable past was a woman operating equipment and being respected for it.
Pros
Opertunities to grow
Cons
Unorganization
