Great place to work for the right person.

Self-motivated, reliable, and trustworthy people can excel here. Taking pride in your work while balancing that with time management is key. Lazy, slow, and sloppy work will not be rewarded.

Worked with them for 4 years

Treated me great. As long as you worked hard and didn’t screw around you were respected and treated well. Had to know the right people for promotions though. That kind of sucked.

Pros

Good pay, great front line leadership, great area super intendants

Cons

Some awful higher ups who were not qualified. All about who you blow now what you know.

Hard work, Decent pay

Hard work, decent pay. Shift work and camp environment so you didn't see family very often. Management often seemed lost but answered any questions to the best of their ability or got back to you with in the day, especially when it comes to safety.

Good Experience

I liked working for the company. The pay was good, the culture was good, and I was kept on large projects, which is always a nice thing. Not a lot off pressure either,

Some great people but terrible foremans

They paid particularly well but at the same time they expected you to be not a minute late on break, if you were you were written up. A ton of bag lickers shooting for foreman that will take credit for your own work, talk behind your back, and throw you under the bus at any turn. I don't know why, but houle loves to promote those people to foreman positions, be warned.

Pros

money

Cons

bad supervision (from my expirience)

Houle Electric is a good well managed company that treats their employees well.

Working as a service person for Houle allows each of the workers and opportunity to develop their own client list. As you service different customers there are businesses that become reliant on you for the service you provide. Houle will train you for whatever skills you require and have an aptitude for. The management team are hard working individuals that maintain high levels of success in securing jobs and manage the jobs effectively. The hardest part of the job is being on call 24/7 although that is usually shared with other service people. The most enjoyable part of the job is having good equipment at your disposal including tools and vehicles. (They also have an excellent working relationship with the IBEW)
