This company is a prime example that if you keep it in the family you’ll succeed. Everyone from the daily cleaners to management are internally hired within one specific family. On top of the clear favouritism at play, Management brings their children in to run around, scream and make it impossible to complete tasks.

I was with the company for a month a few months at most and felt like I was in a sinking ship, suffocating from the tense office culture that is created by the negative attitudes of the Toronto Management VS the Windsor Staff. Sure there’s place for friendly competition or stressful work environments, but when you don’t have daily support from those you think you can trust it makes you hate walking into work.


Lastly it’s a comedy routine, smashing glass for good luck, inappropriate comments made by Management towards staff’s appearance and clothing, and the incense that is burning daily makes the work day incredibly unbearable.

These people hired me and I worked a week, then they didn't call me with my schedule. They kept saying there was no work, but all my friends kept getting hours. I asked why I wasn't and they claimed that I just wasn't right for "this job". Foremen are dumb as a brick, unsafe working conditions, no tie offs, I was a roofer for years with other companies and the disrespect I felt here is the worst in the city

Excellent environment to develop and grow a career, many employee advantages.Everyday is different depending on the project, but there are always good opportunities to learn and room to grow. Hard working and skilled roofers to work with.

Good Mentoring from sales Manager and other sales Persons.


Management and Co Workers are very friendly.


ALL the Women working in the office are hard working , talented and one of company's biggest strength.


If you have passion to learn and the commitment to put in the effort Empire is the place to be.

Empire Roofing is a great company to work for. The environment can be a bit stressful but the CEO and CFO give back as much as they expect you to put forth. We have employee lunches at least once a month, celebrate employee birthdays and most major holidays. They are always supportive of those with families especially when dealing with a sick child or an issue at home.

Was injured on the job in Toronto and and the Forman refused to take me to a clinic and made me work the rest of the day. Had to sneak out of my hotel room and take a taxi to have my hand checked out.

This company rifles through employees like no other. Make sure you have a work agreement signed with iron clad expectations.
Interview the company and review what questions you should ask before taking a role. Also, make sure you ask others who worked there why they left. Better to be safe than sorry.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to list!

Worked there six months. Push crews too hard.
Little or no quality control. When you finally sell a job you'll spend most of your time making excuses to building owner for poor workmanship.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Owners expect miracles. Make empty promises of bonus then use every trick to cheat you.

my day started at 6:00 am.There is no typical day in roofing. Learned all aspects of slope roofing,site safety and materials received and removed. Loved my boss he was always there when needed.As a foreman\supervisor I can't really have co-workers,only workers.Hardest part of day was getting workers up to task(morning excuses or not answering phone thereby altering daily plan). A job well done is always the best part, if the home-owner is happy the Big boss is happy.
Pros
my own hours
Cons
hiring/firing friends
