Steady work and good staff. Has the resources to secure long term work around Edmonton. Company needs to grow by incorporating technology into its business and look more externally for professional help and staff onboarding.

Once upon a time this was a good place to work. Management has run this place into the ground, they treat their employees like they are disposable. They Expect you to get the job done nomatter the risk it puts employees in.

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.

I started with no experience at all in the industry and I've had the opportunity to work for a few different departments with the company working including on the road crews and in the main office. I've been given many opportunities to learn new things, and have great support every step of the way.

The long-term employee retention plans and profit sharing plans are great too.
Pros
Great co-workers, committed managers, long-term retention rewards
Cons
Long hours during peak season

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

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

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.

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
Cons
No job security

Micro managed , always needing people what does that say
Telling people to zip they're lip in safety meetings

Drive around and waste fuel because of no communication

Making lots of money but wasting lots to , never seen a cluster in my life.

Little guys would be broke
Pros
Nice shop
Cons
Maintenance management a joke

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.

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
