Provide all resource for your success
They pay well. Good structure. Depends on your manager. Overall professional place to work with all resources available to you. Mangers are generally accomodating to your needs unless its work-from-home requests. The job is comparatively easy if you are willing to learn and put real effort into your work. You will be recognized and rewarded according to the manager. This maybe in compliments, team acknowledgment. I have seen someone get a gift for putting in sincere effort in their day-to-day work.

Corruption
I Was wrongfully terminated by power hungry management. He Maid up corrupt false documents to have me fired.

Hydro one does not care about there employes. All you are to them is a number.


For instance if your employe number is #897646 that’s all you are to them. Your name means nothing

Construction management with to many incompetent people
To many crew foreman with no studies and no experience at all, and to much power for some unions keeping super lazy people because of the unfair stupid seniority.
Pros
4 days 10 hours, great

They could be more employee oriented.
The company is mainly comprised by nepotism. Hiring of family & friends. Hiring Hall employee’s are looked down upon. They are not even considered equals.
Pros
Great fellow Powerline Line Technicians
Cons
Management less than adequate.
