Solid Summer Job
Lead Hand - H2O (Current Employee) –  Langley9 July 2019
The watering division has been great to work for so far-great pay and helping me gain valuable experience.

I enjoyed driving around in the nice trucks and keeping Surreys trees alive and well

The crew members are all great to work for - its super nice working with people who actually care about their jobs. I have worked here previous seasons and this years crew seems to be the best so far, loving this year and already looking forward to next year
Pros
staff hot lunch was fun! Pizza at staff meetings, great pay, 4 10 hours days
Cons
outdoor work, BC weather

Awesome company to work for
Foreman/Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Langley, BC9 July 2019
Rewarded for hard work-this company prefers to promote from within so lots of opportunity for advancement for the right candidate. Some seasonal divisions but also year round opportunities as well! Lots of programs for employees-health coverage, company events, profit sharing, rrsp matching-this company really cares about its people and rewards hard work and loyalty. best company I've worked for. If you are willing to show up and do your job you will do very well at Horizon
Pros
Staff events, RRSP Matching, Extended health, profit sharing, company vehicles, friendly people, snow and salt shifts are so fun, manager retreats

Treats employees terribly. Don't recommend
watering division (Former Employee) –  langley3 July 2019
Terrible company, highly do not recommend. First they say hours are 6am-4pm but they are actually 5:15am/5:30am - 4:30pm. However you DO NOT get paid form those times, you only get from your first watered tree to last watered tree. So if it takes 30 minutes or more to get to the first tree/ get back to the yard, that's 1 hour you're not getting paid. Another reason NOT to work for them is because the WILL FIRE you over literally anything. The turn over rate there was insane, constant flow of people getting fired over the smallest things. No warnings or anything just instantly let go. I was able to make it through the season but lots of people weren't so lucky. Most employees are nice but some leads need more training, they have no idea what they're doing. So if you like to wake up very early and work all day in the hot sun and always being in fear of being fired this is the job for you. (Have another job as back up just in case)

Family oriented company with a great team building culture.
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Langley, BC23 May 2019
Work contains many different scope and facets of discipline making for a fresh worksite as the task change from time to time.

Hours of work are typically limited to 8 though summer does bring opportunities for Overtime.

Horizon works on some very cool projects in private and public sector. From high end malls to towers to warehouses the mix is very fresh.

Hard work But was fun

Pros

Cons
Very early morings, Very late days

Great Place to Work
Watering Division Admin (Current Employee) –  Langley, BC20 September 2018
Horizon is a great company to work for, since it feels like one big family. All tiers of management work together and communicate everyday, which is great to see.

They are safety oriented and strive to make sure everyone has all the tools they need to do their job effectively.

The companies slogans are:
Passion, Integrity and Quality and I have never worked for a company that is so true to the words they advertise.
Pros
Great Hours, competitive wages, positive work environment
Cons
Seasonal Work

young company, easy to work for
Labourer (Former Employee) –  Langley, BC20 September 2018
I worked for Horizon in the Service Division for two seasons. My experience in both seasons was vastly different. The company had a lot of people coming and going in my first year which made things confusing, but in the second year they had ironed out a lot of the kinks and it made the work really enjoyable.

If you're not a hard worker with a good attitude, this company isn't for you.
Pros
younger demographic, lots of benefits and staff incentives
Cons
seasonal

Really chill summer job
Watering Crew Lead (Former Employee) –  Langley, BC19 September 2018
Working as a water crew member is one of the easier summer jobs. Wake up early, ride in a truck with AC and water trees all day. The hours are fairly long, but the four day work week makes up for it. I found it quite enjoyable just putting on some music and driving around. I'm planning on going back next summer.
Pros
Easy, fun.
Cons
Early Hours

Not the best division within the company to work for if you are looking for a stable job.
Crew Lead (Former Employee) –  Langley, BC8 February 2018
The company would constantly hire people and let them go without a blink of an eye. This is due to the seasonal nature of the company, but the fact that people would be fired for not doing as well as others at the job without being given a chance or helped to overcome the lack of productivity, just makes this company seem poorly run. This review only pertains to the watering division of the company.
Pros
Relatively easy work
Cons
4 days a week/10 hour days starting at 6:00am

An engaging and diverse environment with high job satisfaction
Skilled Labourer (Current Employee) –  Langley, BC23 January 2016
Generally early morning start times (0700 hrs) with standard breaks. Work in crews of 2-8 for the majority of jobs with the occasional large job that requires 20+ workers. Duties include a variety of lifting and carrying and utilization of a multitude of hand and power tools as well as heavy machinery. Supervisors/Foreman and upper Management are very approachable and open to any concerns or questions and attempt to accommodate for time off as well as making work during slower seasons. The most enjoyable part of the job is working side by side with the other great employees and having that sense of accomplishment at the end of the day while visually observing a job well done.
Pros
Good group of people to work with
Cons
Seasonal and extremely physical

Horrible management, mediocre pay
Watering crew member (Former Employee) –  Langley, BC28 September 2015
This company is a joke. No communication from management, very little in the way of actual training, and at $13 an hour starting wage you could get better pay from a liquor store.
Pros
None
Cons
No communication, long hours
