Crew Leader (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 4 February 2013
a typical day at work with this company was an average of 14-16 hour days arriving at the shop for 630 am and being down in Vaughan cutting boulevards for the city till about 7 or 8 pm almost every night for minimal 6-7 days a week. There was 2 weeks where we had to work straight monday to sundays. 14 hr days easily.
I was a crew leader with this company for the first bit i really enjoyed the work and the people but when you get promoted and drive a pick-up with a crew of people and a trailer full of equipment and ask for a 2$ raise and had been told you will get it NUMEROUS times... i requested it for the last time still got no response... (keep in mind i was driving a veryyyy unstable vehicle, the gearswitch was held together by a twist-tie by a employee while i was on the road.) had to drive the truck back to the shop in Holland Landing from Vaughan.
So i had no choice but to lay down my keys and give it up.
