Wouldnt wish this place on my worst enemy
Operator/Labourer (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB10 June 2018
Walked away from 6 years at this place due to the constant intimidation and harassment. You are reminded and belittled by managers daily that you are lucky to even have a job. You are ordered to violate safety rules in the name of productivity and on time performance. Will work you 12+ hours with no lunch period.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Stressful and intimidating atmosphere. Lack of generosity and compassion for employees.

Stay away, its not worth it
Operator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB22 May 2017
Worked here for many years, an this company has gotten worse every year for the last 5years. Being liked and entertaining is more important then being skilled and qualified. Favoritism an nepotism is normalized and rampant through out the divisions. If you are skilled at a position there desperate to fill, be prepared to be used up and exploited. Then discarded when the season is over. Bullying mentality is a way to discribe the work culture and environment. If someone is desperate for work or has no experience in this industry, this place is good for fast money. THAT'S IT. They have such a high turnover rate it's ridiculous. Park Paving has quite the reputation. It's to bad nothing is done about it.
Pros
Pay is decent, newer equipment.
Cons
No work life balance, Gossiping, incompetent unqualified leaders

Can't complain after 7 years
Foreman (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB14 May 2017
very fast growing company, and like any company will have growing pains.
I've worked here for 6 seasons and am on my seventh.
Being a seasonal job of course the turn over is high, as it always is with all construction companies.
There are many crews keeping the same employees year after year regardless of this.
The pay is great, and development and training for those with the potential is there.
Not everyone is going to get promoted!
Work hard and be positive and help the process and yes you will get noticed.
The attitude that if you work hard and be a "keener" or suck up or whatever is a bad thing, is why people don't get promoted and move up.
Pros
The money, and learning different aspects of road building.
Cons
Seasonal, and long hours

Good Friends and Hard work
Foreman (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB9 December 2016
Construction in summer with good friend / coworkers makes it easier to work those 12hrs and sometimes 16hrs go by faster, the hardest part is waking up in the morning.

Park Slaving LTD
Labourer/finisher (Seasonal) (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB20 October 2016
At first this company was good to work for, then somthing changed. Its seems management and field bosses has there own agendas. Communication issues started to get worse, and no respect towards employees started to increase as the season wore on. Advancement is only a pipe dream here, the only ones who get promoted are the ones who know management well enough and suck ups. This place has a high turn over rate for a reason, if you want to be treated like a number, disrespected and layed off every season, this is the company for you.
Pros
Pay

No job security

Great company with great management
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB16 June 2016
I learned a great deal of things from this company and i must say that the supervisors and foreman are very knowledgeable and manage their crew efficiently. Although the job is hard, but I met some great people while working for this company and the experience I gained is invaluable.

A typical day at work
Operator/Labourer (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB11 October 2015
The most enjoyable part of this job is working with those beside me knowing how close knitted we have become. Different stages in the road building industry, though day to day these stages stride with each other hand in hand.
Pros
great people
Cons
position
