Non-Unionized Employee (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 19 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.
Turnover and Quality Coordinator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 17 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, 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

- installation - I learned a lot in training - Management was excellent - work place and environment is great - the hardest part of the job is when you installing the fiber at home and internet and you are alone and you don't have a partner.. - the enjoyable part of the job is to help another tech it they are struggling...

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.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Thunder Bay, ON – 22 November 2017
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.
installation and repair technician (Former Employee) – BC – 17 November 2017
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.
