I worked for Flynn roofing

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great company to work for. Really took care of me as a roofer right up to the point where a new service manager pushed me to transfer to another branch because he wanted a couple of his buddies working under him. I transferred to another branch but travel became an issue after a couple years ,then mom took sick and had to go to no to care for her., but was an excellent employee and foreman for the company and really loved my job

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Winter layoffs

Great family to be apart of. You feel proud and apart of a team you can plant your roots and succeed in life.

If you like honest hard work You’re gonna love this place. I sure did. This is a place to learn and grow and start a secure full time career.

Pros

Family. They take good care of you if you take good care of them ( work hard safe and smart)

Cons

It’s different for everyone. That is anywhere you work tho.

So far so good

Waited a year to post this, cause usually by now I left the company because of terrible management, bad culture, etc… what a difference it makes working for the big boys. No rookie initiation, no yelling, and best of all steady hours and benefits. My wife is happy 😊 Thank you Flynn.

Pros

Not the usual roofing culture

Cons

I'm probably biased cause of where I worked before, but no complaint.

Good company to work for

I enjoyed working for them. They treat their employees very good, but it is also a very physically demanding job. They have a great benefit program, and pay their employees fairly.

Fun place to work. Tough to accept salary offered

Excellent benefits, work culture and people in general. A lot of politics, and management taking credit for hard work. Salaries offered are way below average.

Great Company

Worked there for a couple of months liked the job, enjoyed working with others, working at Flynn you do need to be on top of what you need to be done.

Very poor management

Do not recommend this company to any Canadian citizens you are treated second class. Been there for 6 months and have sat for more than 2 weeks wondering if there is any work with no temporary lay off. In addition the workmanship is the worst I have ever seen in all my years of roofing. Would not recommend this company to do anything for the roofing aspect on any building

Pros

None

Cons

Not enough space

Poor management

Poor management, office tends to not return phone calls, the workplace is great and the Forman’s are great to work for, all in all they could really use better management.

Hard work

Hard work, roofing over the Ottawa region. Big hours, yet not stable. Some new construction and some renovation. Have to be ready physically and mentally to face any type of weather.

Pros

Room n board

Cons

Long hours

Great place to work if you like being laid off.

Great place to work, if you don't mind being laid off in the summer for months at a time, because apparently there are no jobs. For such a big company, it makes no sense that they have no jobs for the summer. Basically if you have senority you get the vip treatment. New employee's get laid off. So if you have a family to support, I wouldn't recommend working here. When you are working they do take care of you. Great group of people to work with. Excellent benefit package, great wages.

Pros

great wages, benefits.

Cons

laid off during peak season.

Not really fun place to work in service

this place was okay at first but there were not enough hours in service so it was hard to get by. A company that caused the death of a young girl was quite disturbing.

Pros

nice staff

Cons

not enough hours

Good place to work

-Good place to work, although work depends on weather conditions. -One has to be able to work in extreme conditions both hot and cold. -Must be able to work at extreme heights. -Company does put you into training courses. -Hard to budget as work is up and down.

Pros

training paid by company

Cons

weather conditions
