Water Technician (Former Employee) – British Columbia – 8 October 2018
If you're applying in BC, specifically Kamloops. Your best bet is to walk away lol. Don't get me wrong the crew and PMAs are amazing but one bad apple can ruin everything. Won't get too much into detail but if you're looking for a place to get stabbed in the back this is the place for you! If you want a good branch maybe check out Vernon, Kelowna, Abbotsford and Surrey. The company itself is great but there choice of hiring some people seems to be a bit off the rocker. Certain ones expect you to bend over backwards constantly with no appreciation. Just one person's opinion take it how you like!
Labourer (Former Employee) – Medicine Hat, AB – 26 September 2018
I worked for them for over a year and they promise you if you work hard they will help you. I was promised countless amount of raises and a chance and a trade and they denied me both just on the fact that I was the cheapest to work. It’s garbage hours. I worked 21hrs one day which is illegal and they expected me to be in at 7am the next day. You have no social or family life when your working and when your not you are so broke you can’t survive. The management only cares about them selves and money but my coworkers were the only good part. They made the job survivable
This company was great to work for. As I believe they were the front runner for restoration companies in western Canada.
Warehouse mgr. /Flood technician / Site supervisor (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 15 September 2018
Onside Restoration, helped me to progress in the workforce by offering me training programs and certifications that would directly impact the knowledge and skills that I needed to perform the duties of the job.
Claims Desk Agent/ Admin Support (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 18 June 2018
I liked the people I worked with in my department, but management is so out of the loop that no one knows what others are implementing/changing. Employees are driven into the ground trying to cope with on-call duties and management is playing golf instead of hiring.
Project Manager Assistant (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 11 April 2018
I did not feel respected or appreciated here. The salary was minimal and was not worth me staying there. The Project Managers do not take any accountability for their own actions and the Manager puts responsibility for all negative aspects onto the assistants.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 24 January 2018
I am very appreciative of my time at On Side. I owe them for teaching me my administrative skills, time management, keeping calm under pressure and they have provided me with job security for two and a half years. I do feel however, that there is no where for me to advance as it is a male dominated business. There is a lot of pressure that comes with the job that can be both very satisfying/rewarding, but also extremely stressful.

it was nice working for them in the beginning , then they treat you like a 4th grader , you give them 6 months notice that you are leaving , then they fire you on the spot with no reason poor , poor no justice
Water Restoration Technician (Former Employee) – London, ON – 4 April 2017
You will make a decent amount of money and learn a lot about building science. However it is a very time consuming position that requires much "on-call" service that can take away from your personal life.
