Landscaper (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 May 2015
The wage was pretty good, but it was misleading. I found out my wage was lower than someone who had less experience, so it made me pretty angry. The work schedule was fair...we worked 8 - 10 hour days on average, 5 days a week. We never worked weekends and got holidays off. The owner was amazing; he cared for his employees and treated everyone fairly. He gave credit where it was due and recognized skill. The foreman, however, was an absolute jerk. He drove everyone insane...it was pretty much his way or the highway. He was extremely rude and inconsiderate and worked the labourers way too hard. My coworkers were pretty good for the most part; a few had very bad attitudes and it wasn't fun working with them. Overall, a pretty good company if you're with the right people.
No weekend or holiday work, great boss, decent pay
Landscape Labourer (Former Employee) – Airdrie, AB – 31 May 2017
Probably the best company I have ever worked for. It was started by 2 guys who currently still own and operate. The only drawback was not getting benefits, which I was used to having from previous employers in different industries. Would happily go to work each and every day and have a great time even working in the rain. Great atmosphere. Highly recommend
Not much overtime, no employee benefits (like dental etc)
