Very Poor Professionalism
Junior Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Morriston, ON28 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.

Inexperienced management and apprentices.
construction (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB8 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.
Pros
Great hours and opportunities for overtime
Cons
Poor communication

Steal back pay, steal vacation pay!
electrician (Former Employee) –  red deer27 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."
