Sales rep - used to be great but now going downhill FAST
Field Sales Representative (Pilot) (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC10 January 2018
When I first joined the company really respected me and treated us well. I learned a ton about sales and goal setting within the first months of the job.

Unfortunately as the job went on things went downhill. We weren't hiring as much and people were leaving because there was no new territory. Honestly it feels like your success is determined by chance whether the managers like you and send you to new territory or not.

Certain leaders in the company are truly inspiring. But at the end of the day, management is lazy, uncaring and becoming less and less apparent. When sales are dry and there's no new territory, the reps are the only ones suffering while managers are out going on trips every weekend with their salaries. A lot of people in this company are now making less than minimum wage while others are making near 6 figures. How does this happen?

I highly recommend if you are young and looking to find what you want to do in life. There are some great mentors here. But career wise, you arrived 3 years too late to join the old boys club.
Pros
Great culture and mentors
Cons
Long hours, unfairness, poor pay, hard work.

Poor Management Culture
Non-Unionized Employee (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB19 December 2017
Decent pay and benefits. Great company if you're part of the click. Upper management in Edmonton seems to have no issue defending PMs that are disorganized, lies to clients and verbally abuses employees. Talking with people that have spent years with Ledcor, this company is slowly going down hill, and starts at the top.
Pros
Benefits, pay
Cons
Poorly managed, temp work

Turnover and Quality Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB17 December 2017
The job was temporary as I was a contractor. They like to keep there "steady eddies" working over new contractors. Your only there as long as they don't have a staff to fill your spot. All and all
It was a good job. I would work for them again

LTS is pretty much the lowest paying Telecom contractor
Fiber optic installer (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC12 December 2017
Safety is number one and more than just lip service.

Pay is bottom of the barrel for almost any Telecom contractor in the LML

Benefits are ok. You can't just go get a massage. You need a doctors note explaining why. Kind of a joke.

All tools and truck supplied.

You can make manager very quickly. But you just have to be a company YES man.

Low morale. Their business model basically includes hiring new people at a discounted wage and then milking them until they leave the company. If you quit within a year YOU have to pay the company back for the training. NEVER heard of this at any other company. They have this because so many people quit. 80% of my hire group had left the company by 6 months.

It's a good racket for them.
Pros
Ok benefits, weekly BBQ in the summer, all tools provided
Cons
Long hours low pay bad morale

Shift start on a Saturday
Millwright (Former Employee) –  First McMurray11 December 2017
Why would you ever start a 14 shift cycle on a Saturday? So your employees never get a weekend with there families? Ignorant schedule like 14 and 7 isn't hard enough on families.
Pros
It's work
Cons
Lousy schedule

Shark like management old boys club
project manager (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB27 November 2017
Ledcor decimated thier safety team, keeping only VP friends and family. Family promoted to top positions while quality people let go.

This caused large decline in HSE support and belief systems.
Pros
salary decent
Cons
disposable employees

Used to be a good company.
Millwright (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB22 November 2017
Back when the company was in its earlier stages of industrial construction and maintenance it was a great place with some great managers, Now it's all who you know, mostly newfoundlanders working for them now. If your not newfie or don't know buddy you will not get in.

Enjoyed this job - wish it would have more permanent. I thought I would have received a call back but the position ended and they did not rehire. I had good relations with both co-workers and management here.
