Great place to work, would recommend as a place to make a career.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great place to work, can be competitive which is normal when dealing with larger companies. Sometimes work isn't recognized, people gossip poorly about others or someone else takes praise for something that someone else does. Which again, is to be expected given Flynn's size. Management sees this and doesn't take the gossip to heart, though occasionally gossip isn't ignored and is treated as a fact which does affects production and employee utilization. Recommendations that if followed would make this a 5 star company: - start enforcing policies that prevent group or individual gossip, focus on creating more teambuilding and staff unity. - if an individual is falling behind, create a work plan with the person that outlines achievable goals, provides a proper layout of what is expected, and lastly when the individual can expect to hear about their progress and what future steps will be taken however they perform.


Great wages, union benefits, training and equipment is provided


Long hours, stability is weather related, company politics at times (Depends on department/foreman).

Areas for improvement
  • Support from manager
  • Trust in colleagues
  • Sense of belonging


Unless you are within your boss' bias group, you can be fired anytime without a warning, which also happens to workers that they hire from overseas. Your voice, ideas, and passion towards work are keeping a tight lip is the way to hopefully secure your job. This is the Flynn way, and this is how the Flynn family dynamics work.

Avoid at all costs

Once hired they sent me to Toronto to receive training and when I came back they fired me after 3 weeks for no reason saying it came from the top and it was nothing I did wrong. Culture is terrible, no one is urgent to do anything, they don't care about their customers and don't call them back. After hearing from other companies about Flynn, all of them say negative things and I wish I didn't waste my time and money on this job.

A rough time for me and my family

They treat employees like garbage, but if you are a service customer they take care of you.Some of my coworkers were great, others were struggling with substance abuse issues. The company doesn't address the problems.My advice: avoid the trouble that working here will cause for you and your family. Find one of their customers, and work there. You will suddenly be able to afford a nicer car.

Just because its a big company doesn't mean its good

Before COVID the CEO came to the branch once a year for a meeting with all employees, and he always said the same thing every year: don't like it here? find a new job. He said it with a smile. Guy says he came up on the tools as if that makes him one of us. No my friend it just means I have more training on my job than you do on yours.Managers and supers do the same thing, but without a smile. Don't like it? Go find another job.I made a big mistake leaving to come here.Hardest part of the job is when work disappears in the winter. Most enjoyable part is when there's work again.

Should of stayed where I was. Big company, sounds like a move up but they chew you up and spit you out. All the good people are gone. Good benefits, long hours, absent management. If you a manager you get to leave early on Friday's. Hybrid work from home if you work in IT or HR, but no one else.

Great tools, unfortunately we are hiring devs faster than we can keep them here. No culture. No pride in work. Management doesn't want the best solution, they want what they thought of first. We have so much talent and its just sits here like robots.

Empty Promises.

They promise alot but don't a good game about benefits and culture and working your way up, but like I tell the kids I coach, judge by actions not words.As far as I can see if your younger and just out of school it would be a good place to learn...but otherwise its a career dead end.


Benefits mostly covered, good job for starting out


Lots of empty promises

Many Challenges and Responsibilities

There are always new challenges and changes. Try to be dynamic, then will see a lot of excitement. Everybody has different and unique characters but they are all good people who are trying to do their best on their responsibilities.

Old boys club

The directors have shares in the company. If you are not in this exclusive club you are a nobody. Stay on their good side, accept their ideas and ways of doing things, and you will be able to work here.


Average compensation


Culture of fear, long hours

I would not go back

This is not a bad place if your starting out. Management doesn't care about you, but that is the usual in roofing. Lots of work in the summer, but you should have something else ready for the winter.

When there is work, it is good.

No more work for the year, so they lay us off. They pay good in summer.When there is work it is a good place to work. October usually is when the work ends, but this year was earlier.

Union Company

Good job for uninspired workers, hard workers are just expected to keep working, while slackers seem to get all the praise. Union rules means it is hard to get rid of riff-raff, as long as their dues are paid. Management talks a big game of being there to help, but in reality only push for more production. Other than that the pay is great, and the pension and benefits are equal to some of the bigger trades out there.


Pay rate and pension.


Hard to get ahead of brown noses.

Horrible Management

Worst company I ever worked for, upper management has no idea of what is happening in the field. Complete waste of time working for them. I wouldn't recommend it at all.

Stress and loads of work

Company says they are a family but everyone steps on each other. They don’t help each other’s mostly everyone for themselves. The company is very good with salary overall


Company vehicle


Not a family culture
Was this review helpful?

A big disappointment

The company promoting their ability to give you proper guidance and be treated as a family only applies to their chosen favorites and employed family and friends. They treat the rest like temp employees regardless of how much you've contributed and the department you're in, that's why turnover is high. Be careful who you trust.

Great group of people.

Great culture, they promote family and work life balance, create many opportunities to grow and are a well managed company. They do tend to have a high turnover rate as they are leaders in the industry so can be a competitive place to work.

Good company to work

Hard workers in site, good environment. Safety first always. Pressure to finish at time with quality. A lot of machines to help for a easy job. They help to make immigration papers.
