Decent company as any to be employed with
Equipment operator/finisher (Former Employee) – Calgary, surrounding area, out of town – 17 March 2019
To start, i’ve been with KLS over 15 years. The negative reviews need not scare you off to gain employment.
Most of those who have left disgruntled have no clue what it takes to pound the pavement to obtain work to employ upwards to 200 employees, then the effort and time spent to dispatch and place skill and talent into the right jobs.
The effort alone to get to know each employees strengths in order to do that especially when many havent got the chops to stick the good out through the tougher times, makes it difficult all around, even with ones like myself, never knowing who’s next or how endowed or lacking in skills ones are!
Kls pays close or at the going rates in construction, one being hired ought to expect to start a bit lower if skills need honing and then be graduated up to pay as they develop.
Many of the negative reviews come from ones expecting a top rate just for showing up! Many of them lacked skils to complete their work thus making it needed to have higher skilled, myself included put in to redo, cleanup or both in their aftermaths!
I’ve as stated been with KLS over 15 years and i go with the good and tough times like anywhere one could work. I plan on continuing with KLS.
KLS management tries to maintain a family atmosphere, if you give to the company, then you see that as I have!
KLS has a good safety program in place and works hard to improve its effectiveness.
All in all, if you bring a good effort everyday, KLS will end up a decent employer toward you.
Bbq’s, Safety orientation yearly alongside PCL, Graham and others.
Hours can be long but in this industry, mostly seasonally deadlined, one can expect that.
