Not a good working environment
Foreman (Former Employee) –  Port Coquitlam British Columbia24 December 2016
Typical day show up to the shop at 6am wait till 715 to get your work order and then have the owner come down and ask you why you haven't left the yard by 7 o'clock to get sent out to scrub Moss for days on end and they never give you enough time load 100 bags of wet Moss in your truck and head back to the shop that's a good day at design roofing most the time you show up to work sit there till 730 and then they tell you it's a rain day when it's sunny and the birds are chirping in a roundabout way that's how they say they have no work
Pros
Half hour deducted lunch and no coffee breaks

Only pay overtime after 160 hours in a month

Glorified janitor
Foreman (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC29 September 2016
This is more of a glorified janitor. Clean moss and garbage on a roof and renew caulking.

Management is very unimpressive, more like a glorified mom and pops company
Pros
Paid lunch, nice trucks
Cons
Hours are like you work in a office. Not enough
