After working for the company for only 2 weeks, I was suddenly discharged from my role in the middle of the work day without being given any reason as to why.
I was simply told to contact the human resources department for more information. Upon talking to the human resources department, even they could not provide me with an adequate explanation for the sudden termination.

All of this despite asking my supervisor if they are happy with my performance 2 days prior, and them telling me that I was doing well.
Pros
Shorter commute than previous job
Cons
No job security

They hire a bunch of people everytime they have a big project and suddenly they dismiss them as soon as the project is finished ,they don't appreciate whatever good work you do, there is not hope for advancement

Cesspool of inbred people, who feed on each other. If you fall on their bad side for any reason, start another job search. They streamlined the process of letting people go to the finest in the industry. In other words, they don't do anything to keep people. People stay with them for the money.
Pros
Money
Cons
Full of it

Pros
One project to handle and stay fully focused on

Not what I was looking for in a career

I worked for them on and off for years. It’s always a new and interesting job. I would attribute the majority of my success to all the crazy stuff you learn and do with these guys. As the Construction Manager once said, “ we work an ingnorant amount of OT... you in?” So yeah money awesome, you want to learn a lot about anything construction/marine/crane related?! Then these guys for sure. Only reason I stopped working there, to many hours... lol! Other wise I’d still be plugging along there happily!!
Pros
Lots of hours, good pay, always a new adventure, they keep newer iron around, travel around, great mix of on/off water work.
Cons
To many hours.... sometimes.

If you interested in working for a company that is very unorganised and management doesn't care for staff but are looking for a high wage with zero job security then this is the place for you. Employees come and go like a revolving door, due to the managements poor skills and bad work environment. I highly do not recommend this company to anyone who is looking for long term work or a happy work environment.
Pros
high wages, good benefits, overtime
Cons
terrible management, bad work environment, unorganised, no room for advancement

Extremely friendly staff, wonderful and thought full boss, and very good communication skills with the general manager Cameron. He was an excellent Micro-manager who was always open for consultation on whatever concerns you may have. Followed compliance when it came to matters concerning employee's field of expertise.
Pros
Excellent salary, tremendous management, and terrific hours.
Cons
Their contracts prohibit those who are willing to move with them, because they must hire locally.

I learned alot working for this company. I did a variety of jobs for them on two differerent projects and enjoyed all of it. I had an excellent supervisor and that made the job even better. They had a good crew to work with as well. Money was good and so were the benefits.

I would always arrive at the jobsite at least half hour before work resumed. We always had morning safety meetings and then headed to the position I was working that day. It was usually flagging for traffic and when I was supervisor I was responsible for getting the flagging crew into their positions after the safety meeting. I reported to management as required. I didn't find the job hard at all and the whole job was enjoyable.

I was connected to the job by a friend and started shortly after. A typical work day was anywhere from 10 to 14 hours long. any additional training is payed for. the benefits package is nice too. on a regular basses management would drop the ball and there would be no work for one to three days. The people I worked with were great guys, I made some friends and there always looking out to help you as contacts for work. you may get the business for the first month or so however. Replaced after three and a half months by someone willing to work for less.
Pros
awesome coworkers.
Cons
long hours, no lunch or breaks.
