Operator (Former Employee) – Acheson, AB – 29 January 2019
Worked there for a few years. Management only cover their own butts. They don’t care about you or your family just the job. They short change the contractors. Over charge all the time. Some people make the day wonderful but every spring a hire on of too many inexperienced people. Then by winter too many laid off. If you need time off forget about it. If you have grievances forget telling anyone, Forman will tell you they will replace you at the tip of a hat. The company’s in the same area are awesome compared to them. Just look at their google reviews.
A pay check
Everything but the pay check (management, hours, poor maintained equipment, lack of training, etc.)
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 September 2019
Started out at kichton and loved it but they grew too big to fast. Managment ended up having the worse attitude towards employees always being told you should be thankful you're working like they're doing you a favour.
The buddy system and politics is the strongest I've ever seen at any company. If you dont know a foreman or a leadhand you can forget about even being noticed
Overall as long as that moron owner still runs the show, kichton will ultimately fail.
