Geotechnical Field Technician (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 5 January 2019
Working with a company like Golder associates so early in my career was truly a terrific opportunity. 2 years of working as a geotechnical field technician taught me a lot about how a large company works as well as how the industry functions. Typical days at work required me to pick up a nuclear densometer from the lab in the morning and bring it to site where I calibrated and used it throughout the day. Workplace culture at Golder was very formal because it is such a large company.The hardest part of the job was managing large construction projects while short staffed. The most enjoyable part of the job for me was the field work e.g talking to clients and operators and working together to complete a project.
