Junior Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Morriston, ON – 28 June 2018
Very Poor Professionalism. This company does not treat people fairly, they send voicemails and emails with misleading information and than just go back on there word. The employees hired are not trained properly to carry out their duties properly.
I worked for this company for 3 months and I've never seen a place where supervisors actually intimidated there employees... there is no structure.. the whole place is filled with cons.. don't leave a single tool around or it will be stolen.. don't give an opinion because it will be swiftly shut down by a intimidating rebuttal..seriously by far the worse company in winnipeg by a long shot
Morning stretches before work was great however getting a job done at the cost of employees health like working in the rain or when the weather is above 30 makes no sense. A lot of waste at the site that could be reused.
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 5 April 2017
be careful what your told, not always truthful, overall good company to work for, but the bottom line is most important to management, not the people, they let people go regularly to keep the costs down it seems.
Lead Hand Electrician (Former Employee) – Ontario – 29 November 2016
Very fast pace, noisy, hot environment. Work under some very good supervision. Good accommodations and travel allowance.Liked working with all my co-workers of different trades and of the electrical crews.
Form Setter (Former Employee) – Pickering, ON – 22 June 2016
Semi-monthly and by-weekly confusion putting workers in a higher tax bracket. Working overtime costs the employee. eg: with 10 hrs overtime, gross pay was higher but take home was about $100. less than without overtime.
First Year Apprentice (Current Employee) – Yellowknife, NT – 9 February 2016
Good company to work for just wish they had a fly in fly out setting for employees as if you are working in another province you will be living their and only going home on your terms, they will fly you home for Christmas.
Understanding staff, Ability to make you feel at home
construction (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 8 December 2015
Hires a lot of apprentices who are often inexperienced. Employees who are experienced don't usually get job advancement or the recognition they deserve. Poor communication within management, city and employees which leads to jobs being re-done more than once.
Industrial Electrician (Former Employee) – Yellowknife, NT – 20 November 2015
supervisor expected me to give up my family and health but spent lots of his time on vacation or flying his family in to spend time with them. rest of crew was inexperienced and hard to deal with. insubordinate and down right lost for the most part.
flights paid for, Christmas party was good
expect you to do nothing but work, not helpful in disciplinary situations
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 18 June 2015
Worked with NAC for approx. 5 months and observed low risk tolerance amongst NAC employees and a strong safety culture within the company. I enjoyed my experience in the field with this company and learned a lot on situational awareness and on workplace safety while working with an excellent team/ crew.
Estimator (Former Employee) – Morriston, ON – 31 March 2015
North America Construction is an amazing company to work for as everyone is extremely helpful and understanding. I started their when I was a student and amount of help I got was incredible. The environment is very friendly. Work hard, play hard!
electrician (Former Employee) – red deer – 27 October 2014
Do not work for this company! They won't pay back pay to you if your waiting for conformation of trade experience and they will try to take your vacation pay! Three apprentices had there back pay stolen from them, and I heard two of there long term employees tell of how they took their vacation pay. Not to mention they will teach you to do things that any electrician that takes pride in his work knows not to do. Supervisor, "I'll be long gone before they ever notice."
