Management is terrible and they all look out for only themselves
office worker (Former Employee) –  Ontario11 December 2018
If you like the thought of working at a place where survivor meets the apprentice, this is definitely the place for you. There is no advancement unless you are in with those who are managers. Hard work is rarely recognized or rewarded. Some of the staff are good, hard working, decent individuals. If you're looking for simply a paycheque and benefits, this is your place for it
Pros
easy money
Cons
terrible management

Ups and Downs - good work when you can get it
Rodman (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC18 April 2018
Rodbusting at its best on the west coast; unfortunately work is sporadic when the rest of the city is booming.

Managers and supervisors play their favorites and do little unless you are willing to pay tribute to them.
Pros
union wages
Cons
managers

If management changes this would be a great place
Accounting (Former Employee) –  Stoney Creek, ON28 March 2018
Management is killing the culture at Harris Rebar. It's a great company with job security and advancement (if you take the time to hang around). Management is slowly killing the staff and culture by keeping senior managers who only look after themselves and treat the staff like garbage. If management would change and find people who look after the employees, this would be the best place to work.
Pros
Location, benefits, work-life balance
Cons

Typical Large American Corporation
Plant Manager (Former Employee) –  Stoney Creek, ON29 November 2017
It use to be a great place to work. Once Nucor took it over now its all about numbers. Even the employees are just a numbers. They want production results without investing in machinery. It is such a shame. After 30 yrs of dedicated service I was tossed aside for no reason. Middle management is not a safe place to be.
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
Upper management

Journeyman Ironworker (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC6 August 2017
A typical day starts with our daily schedule and safety and comments about the previous day and who's working where and with who and then a team stretch lasts about ten min then it's off too work I must say working is mostly productive almost the whole day because everyone works as a team and it all comes together!
Pros
Good pay

Hard work
Ironworker Apprentice (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB26 June 2017
Great company with great benefits. This is a very hard job. A day in agony is a day in the life of an Ironworker. You should have a hard skin to work hear. Not for the faint of heart.

Detailer (Former Employee) –  Dartmouth, NS15 May 2017
Manager needed to be appeased. Enough said. The fellow employees were great and the work was fine. No training was provided however. The radio HAD to be on all day and we weren't allowed to wear our own headphones because the manager wanted to be able to yell to all of us at once without waiting.
