favoritism
worker (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB28 January 2018
this is a worst place to work as management keep their eyes closed due their supervisors and operators on the floor got liscence to kill as per their personal liking and dislikings. This place is a wonderfull place for lazy and less hard working people as they will get the most easy work to do ..and the worst for the hard working and dedicated people as they will be doing all hard jobs and company will keep on overloading hard working people with the same pay as the lazy people doing easy jobs.
so if your are a hard working guy dont ever think about going there..if you are a lazy and only time killer then its the perfect place for you.

slave shop
General Laborer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB14 December 2017
worst company to work for. They don't care about their employees. They give you the run around when your entitled to a raise. They keep boxes by their toilets which discard toilet paper is kept. They know about this and do nothing. Employee concern is not a factor with this company. They like to promise you things and not to deliver. Lack of communication bottom line bad company to work for.
Pros
none.
Cons
long hrs in the summer and hot days.

Productive, Friendly Co-Workers
Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee) –  Delta, BC23 January 2016
- Prep our air pressurizing hoses around our work area
- Pick up a full set of a frame to assemble back in our work area
- Use ethanol to clean designated parts of the frame and set up parts of the frame to silicone and screw on together.
- Silicone joints and screws to seal any areas that moisture may leak through and cause issues.
- Help out co-workers if asked for help to move completed frame.

- Hardest part would be tooling silicone to fully seal parts of the frame.
- Most enjoyable part is working with the Assembly team, great guys and very friendly crowd.
Pros
Teamwork, leave work at 12 in the afternoon on Fridays
Cons
Monday to Thursday work 9 hours but Friday only 5 hours, very repetitive

Fabricator (Former Employee) –  Mississauga3 March 2015
It was a pleasure working at Old Castle Building Envelope. I had the opportunity to gain valuable experience as well as work with a team of hard working individuals. I learned how to construct more efficiently windows from aluminum and glass. I learned how to work with a team to solve challenges. The most enjoyable part to the job is when I was able to complete a particularly challenging task successfully.
