No regard for covid during 2020 6 beds per room in fire hall at ab beach industrial equipment not up to par and over all a pretty bad environment to even call a work place they have a huge turn over in personnel and anyone how stays develops a god complex and honestly believes they are God's gift to man

Broken promises

Ever wonder why their alway hiring, definitely something to think about before leaving your current job to give them a try. High turnover of employees, when you start they make lots of promises but don’t always follow through. There are way better options to get your start in firefighting. If it seems too good to be true it usually is

Pros

You get to call yourself a fire fighter

Cons

You’ll never be able to use them as a reference or put on a resume

Definition of Nepotism

High ranking firefighters are all directly related to the chief. You won't get paid what you're stated. You're worked like a dog basically to make the chief more money. This fire station is paid by the local government. Something shady is going on over at Northwest/onoway regional fire department.

Cons

Nepotism, harrassment

Paid family members shouldn’t write reviews

Management is awful, they only look out for their paid family members . They lied about wages and how you would be paid . Great concept of the company as paid fire department / training and dipping into oil field work but mismanaged. They are very unprofessional and have seen the chief and captains belittle border line harass workers. Very high turnover rate due to management .

Pros

Good concept of the company

Cons

Everything

Garbage

They don’t pay you or their accounts if you want to get home you better have gas money management is a joke equipment is a joke, they treat you like a slave and then make every excuse to not pay. Entire company is run by a family that doesn’t know anything about this job
