Shop Estimator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 4 December 2015
In my situation it became apparent early on that there were very little standards to follow and my job became more difficult as I could not grow. I learned that it doesn't matter what your status is you should let your concerns be known even if it costs you, sometimes. The staff was great, the hardest part was two supervisors and the best was having only one.
Office (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 26 July 2018
A great company to work for with great leaders. They believe in career advancement, training, and promoting from within. The company has sent many workers through NACE, University, and Training programs, suited to the individual's needs.
The owners work side by side with everyone and are the first ones to tell you "good job".
The culture there is positive and fun.
The company is always giving back to their employees through team building events and bonuses. Hard work is always recognized and after a busy push week, the guys are awarded lunches and BBQ's.
This company has great potenial but is closed minded to other applications in the industry

This company is an equal opportunity employment hiring business which I regard as excellent, Norpoint has services for employing students for work experience and does not discriminate special needs. I had a great learning experience there with other employees, they took me under their wing and showed me the operations and setup for different work types and loads, they always invited me to be part of their work to experience their day. I worked independently and alone, two senior members reviewed and approved all estimates prior to issuing. Since they had two different perspectives on pricing there was always conflict because there was no standard. I was in a no win situation and decided to discuss the matter when an opportune time presented itself. I was intimidated by the fact that my experience in the blasting and coating industry was pretty much zero, I really felt that my contribution in company meetings was less then adequate and because of this I am positive it affected my work. I enjoyed talking to clients and helping them out.
