Do not work in the payroll department

If you want to work in an environment where there is no team moral, this is the job for you. The payroll manager picks favourites and treats everyone else like garbage. They are also micromanager. The majority of the team is over worked and undervalued. I do not recommend working in this department.

Pros

None

Cons

Low team moral, micromanaging, poor plan compensation

1 year working in a bad environme t

Supervisors are untrained in dealing with thier co workers...they are very un professional in their ways to get thier point across. No interest in listening straight to yelling....I would not reccomend working g for a company who puts untrained supervisors in positions to deal with new employees.

Graham Construction

position was as a team lead and mechanic, mechanical expectations were very standard, hours were exactly as described when hired. work/life balance was exceptional as it was a mon-fri position. Team lead position was rewarding

Poorly paid, management doesn't back up its staff

I would not recommend working at this company. Management doesn't back up its employees. They will use you to get as much as they can out of you for as little pay as possible.

Very lucrative opportunity

At the time, I was stationed in a camp setting, company was very accommodating, great people to work for and with from being on the ground all the way up to upper management, time away from family is hard to deal with but given a stable economy I’d do it again.

Downhill

I worked with graham a few times. Always a great company in my years experience until my most recent year. The company has changed drastically due to the upper management and how they treat the employees that better the company. Would I go back. Yes but hopefully under different management.

MY OVERALL SUMMERY?..Good work experience.

Graham Construction has a good work ethics and I liked it. The chance of advancement? Nil. The wages?..I didn't approve!! I'm a journeyman carpenter, and being paid at $25 an hour? In today's economy? UNACCEPTABLE!! I WAS GIVEN A 2 DAY NOTICE, BEFORE MY FIRSTLAYOFF!!..UNACCEPTABLE!!

It's Construction workers you need to be strong emotionally and physically.

Slow start but pick up the pace very quickly, I learned many things relating concrete, medians, how to use certain hand tools, how to use equipment of all sizes. I never had any problems with management. You need to be able to laugh at yourself otherwise it will be draining for you. The hardest part of the job was just learning many new things all at once. The most enjoyable part is once when you don't have to learn anything anymore because you already know.

Pros

Sometimes you'd get a free lunch

Cons

if something goes wrong you could be there for hours on end.

It was a learning experience,but there was a lot of name hires,enjoyed working with the crew,and really learned alot. Managment was ok,the foreman's were all really good guys
