Run, would not work here
Construction Labourer (Former Employee) –  London, ON9 May 2019
This company will micro manage you from afar and there is no chain of command. They want you to work long hours with no chance of promotion, will not let you build your own teams for success. There are better companies out there. They watch everything on your phone, laptop, even your company truck is GPS
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours with no compensation for employees, no job security

Really fun workspace, with a lot of good teammembers.
Cable Crew (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB30 April 2019
The team members of Jatec are really good people, They help you out all the times and if you ever have any questions they will for sure know the answer to them, management is always there to make sure you do your job properly and do not get hurt.
Pros
good salary
Cons
Overtime

Biggest waste of time ever
Labourer (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB18 April 2019
Management is pathetic. You work all week and in all conditions and the company does nothing for you in return. You are treated like a nobody and unless you are a superintendent, you mean nothing. Don't expect things like reviews or raises because they never happen. They ask you to do unsafe and shady things and then preach safety when things go bad. Garbage company.
Pros
You get benefits
Cons
Too many to list

Don’t bother
Fiber Optic Technician (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC18 April 2019
What a shame they got rid of the old management here in Vancouver, ever since everyone a lot of people started slacking and not caring like before.
I’ve also never seen a full time job that sits you down and let’s new employees work when work is slowing down, you don’t get paid lunch and your not allowed to take it, All the Forman's think that they’re too good to work and get their hands dirty until the owners are around. You also have to be careful of someone smashing into your company vehicle or running you over because you’ll get a written warning if that happens to you.
Don’t waste your time here

Stay away !!
Journetman electrician (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB12 April 2019
This company has some great employees but the management is ridiculous !! Spying on employees from a distance to make sure they arent taking too long of a break to making employees that are in the passangers seats on our way to jobs take their break before ariving to site. Too bad they know nothing about morale or how to treat an employee ! Ceo of the company often drives to sites to check up or catch employees taking breaks at proper times. Worst company I 've ever worked for.
Pros
Some good people to work with
Cons
Way too many to list

Management is unprofessional.
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Surrey, BC4 March 2019
I was a laborer in the lower mainland. My job was decent but the management was horrendous. The operations manager is lazy and hardly left his office while I worked there, except to get lunch. The other manager was a snap show and would lose it if you didn't bow down to him. Seems like there was always a constant battle for power between the two. I was laid off and it was the best thing I got from them.
Pros
None really
Cons
Not enough space to list them all

Great Working Enviroment, Plenty of Advancement, Home Every Night
Foreman/Operator (Current Employee) –  Edmonton21 February 2019
Great place to work! If you work hard you will be recognized. Plenty of different areas to advance. Great apprenticeships. Great place to learn a bit of everything from standing streetlights to installing gas and cable to heavy equipment operation. Great group of Foreman and Superintendents that help you succeed. Very family friendly place to work if you want to be close to home.

Utility Worker (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB12 February 2019
Pretty well good organization. Perhaps too big for its own good. Many mistakes overlooked, seemed like deficiency work was a norm. Owner has monopoly over subdivision construction, making it hard for smaller companies to compete.

Poor upper managment

BC Jatec Team
Laborer/Operator (Current Employee) –  Surrey, BC17 January 2019
I've been here for a while and have seen an improvement in the Team and Management direction. We have cleared house of those who were not a good fit and brought in solid people who want to work. The guys I work with are awesome. The manager and superintendent care about the work life balance and are always willing to help out.

This company is growing and it is good to know I have a the ability to learn new stuff and take on new responsibilities.
Pros
Good Team to work with
Cons
Lots of hours

it was a good place to work, made lots of money probably wouldn't work there again.
Skid Steer Operator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB12 December 2018
typically you work year round 10 hour days 6 days a week. You will typically get a raise when you move up or during your review. It is very hard work if you are in labour. like any place your boss and the bosses in the office are mean and some might not even know what they are doing.
Pros
you get 3 breaks
Cons
when they say 15 min break they mean you better be working on that 15th min

CABLE CREW LAYER (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB21 September 2018

Pros
Good pay and plenty of hours
Cons
Layoffs in winter
