Chaotic but well paid

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It seems like every department is always "catching up" and therefore no one is working on improvements for the future but just getting the backlog of work done. Also, the quality of the homes is so terrible that it was difficult to be a customer facing employee. Almost none of the home owners were ever happy.

Very disappointing

Management has no regard for employee safety or welfare. There's a complete lack of consideration for work quality and customer service. It is very discouraging and disappointing for such a large company to display such lack of corporate responsibility to its customers, community, and stakeholders.

Some good people with a toxic supervisor hierarchy

If you like a job where the pay is moderate at best for what is required of you, your managers can never be happy (with your work or their own supervisors) and you are constantly getting chewed out by homeowners for their poorly built houses... Then this is the job for you! P.S. This is based on my experience in the warranty department only.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Toxic work environment in the warranty department.

Fun hard satisfactory work

Management are probably the best Ive been with. They appreciate the hard work, and they acknowledge it. The crew is nice, the benefits are awesome, the pay is decent. I switched careers because my last job was very germy(could catch covid), unsure if I want to go back to it because theres a low chance of catching it, I think I'll stay with Mattamy.

Excellent Place to Work

Everyday is different. Very fun and exciting place to work with a great company culture. Everyone is so supportive right from the bottom up and wants to see you succeed. Always looking to run fun activities and setting up team lunches.Mattamy is a great place to grow and succeed!

You've been warned

Be prepared to be drowning in work with no help. Good luck. Please look elsewhere, you will probably be treated better by a smaller builder than this one.

Pros

Good health benefits

Cons

High turnover

Enjoyable place to work . Some sites are like families

With the exception of some upper management that have since been terminated it was a great place to work .There are definitely peers that are out to sabotage others to better themselves but thats pretty much every company .

Primarily chaos

Below construction industry standard pay...limited benefits. A lot of clicks, back stabbing & underhanded moves by managers.No real focus on customer satisfaction that leaves staff open to abusive behavior from customers...some of which have unreasonable expectations

Good environment, Not permanent

Great co-workers and environment. Pay is decent position is unstable because once they sell out homes at a sales site they move to another location which might be out of reach for you.

Pros

Free food on opening days.

Cons

weekend hours, not permanent

Great Employer. It's not easy.

Loved my time as a NHT in the GTAW for the most part. There's always people that just don't play nice with others, especially with a company as big as this. If you're a steady worker you'll succeed. Never had a layoff, some of the managers would have you believe different, hasn't been one in decades. Not sure how the US employees are treated but here in Canada it was first class. Hourly for the NHT is below par but the 44 a week is always there and more during the 4qtr push if you want it. It's overall a great place to work, but everything is what you make of it. I still miss the fellas.

Pros

Lunches, bonuses, extra gift cards and gifts, steady and secure, 3 weeks vacation, 5 paid sick days, wide variety of skill set needed, satisfying when it all comes together at the very last minute.

Cons

Crazy busy in the 4th qtr, if you're really good they'll dump it all on you, some meatheads in the AB and B positions. Work-life suffers.

If you are a sub Contractor stay away

I have had over 15 years experience with Mattamy and they are the most difficult to work with in Alberta by far.. If you have an option stay away.. Everything is your fault not theirs and you will be taking out loans to pay your employees while they ride the high horse.. They demand way more from trades for the same money.... laugh as you leave

Pros

safe

Cons

no respect

Toxic work Environment

Upper level management is rude and aggressive, hasn't got a clue how to talk to their staff. The entire Ottawa division needs a shake up that has been in the making for a long time. Not very many happy people to be coming into work.

Pros

Steady work, good benefits

Cons

Bullying, toxic work environment

no loyalty and they treat you like a criminal when laid off

I would not let anyone I care for work here. If your friends with the management you can coast. It was a great place to work until they laid off the Edmonton president who always took time to thank you for your hard work.

Pros

Benifits

Cons

no loyalty

No security

If you want to end up a scape goat or get fired for no reason, work for Mattamy. Internal politics and Managers looking out for them selves. No one cares when your just a number. So many incompetent Managers and supervisors, makes it impossible to succeed or advance.

Pros

Free lunches and parties

Cons

No security

Quantity not quality

First off. The homes are absolutely bad quality. Crooked cracked missing siding. Brick work all over the place. Caulking is bad, looks very amateur for such a large company Management, although nice enough, are super unorganized and have no clue what’s actually going on. I’d avoid this place unless you are new to construction.Quantity not quality

Pros

Mon-Friday

Cons

Unorganized, management not good, rush rush rush

Quiet office and little loyalty towards their employees.

I enjoyed my time working for the company. I found the office staff weren't too chatty and kept to themselves but the pay and benefits were good. Employees shouldn't get comfortable as there's a lot of turnover and the room for advancement is slim.
