Never out of work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Started 2+ years and always getting enough hours, schedule staff are very cooperative and understands your availability. Managers are their when u need them. I am just comfortable working different sites as not boring and stuck on one place. Money is not great but stress level is low too. Be honest with your work & availability level open for any shift will keep your job safe.

Pros

None

Cons

Pay

Great working environment, supportive team and management.

Continuously evolving with business needs, great working environment, supportive teams and management. Hardest part of the job might be for the people who do not like challenges and the change. Otherwise you are constantly growing not just professionally but personally as well.

worked their for so long and still treated like c***

You work your butt off and in exchange you get your wages cut and management pay goes up while they dont care about the employees and expect more for less.Having an mortgage and bills and having to go to alberta works so they can pay your bills whild managements attitude is at least you have a job

Pros

free clothing

Cons

long hours and s*** pay

Poorly Managed Company

The HR people have no clue as to where locations are before they send you there. They tell you one wage and when you start the low ball you and make you fight to get agreed upon salary.

Pros

if you like to have to fight and argue this job is for you?!

Cons

A day care is easier to work in, at least you know the mental age and attitudes of the children

Security Guard

Good place to work for. depends on the site you get to conduct security which can make it or break it. Some sites are welcoming, good people to work with and fun. Other sites can mean being alone for 12 hours straight.

Pros

good pay

Cons

long hours
