Good company to work for in the Grey/Bruce area. They always have lots of work and good people to work with. They operate a little old school but it works in the area they operate in.

I worked here on one of my first post-secondary co-ops several years ago. Horrible experience. Non-stop bullying and harassment and taunting by co-workers and supervisors. Since it was a co-op I just bit my tongue and kept my mouth shut because I needed the experience, the credit and the reference. Now that I am older and have established myself in my career I feel comfortable in revealing what it was truly like here. I've never met so many miserable and ignorant people as I have working here. The start and end date I put in this review are not the true ones in order to keep my anonymity. I'm sure they will do whatever it takes to get this review deleted so my hope is that at least one person who may be considering working there reads it and reconsiders applying.
Pros
Lots of hours
Cons
Low pay, horrible treatment from co-workers and supervisors, little to no training

The people are amazing that you get to work with. They all have your back and are there when you need them. Supervisors are very nice but have an unapproachable look. Everyone there is there to help you. I love this job more than anything

They'll pay you a minimum and make you do the work of many. Your work isn't valued. Don't expect to be able to take your breaks, if you try to take a break, they threaten to send you home if you "don't have anything to do". Team work isn't encouraged there, you're not allowed to speak with your co-workers, even if it has to do with the job you're doing. You'll be constantly harassed by by the HR manager. Not a great place to work!

Owner believes that your personal life can be judged and you will be penalized at work for it if it offends them. Owners will hide in bushes on work sites to see if you take too long a lunch break. Sooo much more wrong with this place.

Co-workers were pretty good. Office staff and management couldn't care less for employee complaints or work safety. If conditions are not safe... shut up and just do it anyway or you won't be called back to work. They will just say sorry work is slow and bring in someone else who will put up and shut up.
Pros
Some of the other drivers were great
Cons
Management staff was horrible. Unaproachable
