Not in Payroll

Overall the company is good but not in Payroll.
The management treated people in payroll as machines and often unfairly.
Payroll Manager is micro managing.
Counting all errors.

Fun people
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB5 February 2018
Good opportunity for those who are committed long term. Good challenges for those who classify them selves as experienced. Does take a little bit to get trust they are a safe, strict oriented company but with time and proving yourself you can do well, and they are quite large so that’s another bonus.
Pros
Good atmosphere
Cons
Can be very strict at times

Hard work and rewarding
Senior Labourer (Former Employee) –  White Rock, BC1 October 2017
Typical for the construction industry. There arte many people involve in large scale construction projects and you must focus on the job you are tasked with so as not to hold up other trades from completing their job. You must also deal with and resolve any problems that may arise. This sometimes can create a tense working environment.

Employee Owned Provides a Different Character.
Manager (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB15 September 2017
The employee owned nature of the company provides a more positive character and work environment than large publicly owned companies that are consumed with meeting quarterly targets.

It's work
Earthworks operator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB20 June 2017
Concrete crew I was on was fun and a lot of work. There is no balance between life and work cause you work out of town constantly. The pay is good and they take care of you on the road.
