Avoid if you are apprentice
Carpenter Apprentice (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 11 October 2019
If you need some real skills and experience avoid this company at all cost. This company treats carpentry apprentices as cheap and expendable labours. After year or so when apprentices get new level and their salary goes up, PCL just kicks them out and hire new guys. Management is a joke, arrogant and unprofessional. Safety is on the edge of absurd. You have to fill up thousands of paper in order to do even the simpliest task. Favoritism, backstabbing, ratting out - very toxic environtment. Procedure of layoff is extremely humiliating and disgusting. At the end of the week you are just told that they didn’t need you anymore and you are not allowed even say good buy to your cooworkers. Bottom line: Pcl is a garbage pile.
