LTS is pretty much the lowest paying Telecom contractor
Fiber optic installer (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 12 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.
Ok benefits, weekly BBQ in the summer, all tools provided

Good place to work but you will learn on the fly, in the field, sink or swim. Training is painfully non existent unless it's an online module. You are on your own which is nice but there is a lack of tools provided and you may be stuck at a site at 3am with no options and nobody picking up the phone to help you. Contracts come and go so set aside a little cash for the slow times. Vehicle is provided. Managers are over worked and are not always available when you need them. If you are an excellent troubleshooter, and can think like McGyver in the field then this job is for you. I enjoy a challenge and have no regrets working there. Another plus is that you are home dispatched and get a gas card, laptop, smart phone are provided. Benefits are good, and they match RRSP contributions.
Great place for developing/improving sale and communication skills and growing skin under amazing management
Field Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 8 November 2017
Work starts with daily meeting and trainings for a few hours. Afterwards, we drive to specific areas and go door-to-door. I have enhanced my communication and interpersonal skills by daily presenting to several potential customers. Also: - Strengthened my time management skills by prioritizing certain tasks to ensure the best outcome for all customers. - Actively worked and maintained positive relationship with the team of 7-8 people - Learned about the importance of relationship with the customer and leaving a good experience.
Literally the absolute best company I have ever worked for. Access to Grant Cardone's sales training Uni, manage your own time strictly commission based but commission pay was very reasonable and more then enough opportunity to make money
Concrete Foreman (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 20 October 2017
Working for Ledcor was enjoyable. The crew was good to work with. Living arrangements were good but sometimes you had a shared bathroom depending with what room you were in. There was overtime and the pay was good. The flights were arranged for us but the turnaround was short with only having 1 week home which included your 2 days travelling.
Road Construction Labourer (Former Employee) – Alberta – 2 August 2017
working for ledcor taught me everything i know in the road building industry. it had been my first job as a 17 year old and it taught me proper work ethic, what people expected of you and to set the bar high for yourself every day to get what you can done, and done right. majority of my heavy quipment operating took place here.
Laborer/Operator (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 15 May 2017
Management are horrible don't take in consideration on the good employees not hard to see. Going overboard you notice that there's an oil leak on your truck and you reported it to your supervisor he wants to give you a yellow card as a warning. I've seen where they want you to put out $1,500 or more for certain certificates out of your own pocket but I've seen smaller companies that help accommodate you. If you work there you're better off to stay as the person in the corner and just do your job. The other reports that you see about how good the company is. Almost like there's is total different company never got those little perks or benefits that you hear about in this company
Labouer/Operater (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 April 2017
No matter if it was 40 below we were suppose to show up to site in the morning and if too cold to work they had sent us home with 4hrs and subsistence pay (160 a day) Benefits were amazing and 100% match for rssp. Pention was $4 every hour worked. Management was on you asap if needed proper documention. The job was amazing but certain crews would be cliched
