Somewhat lower quality of work allowed than what I'm used to.
Electrician (Former Employee) – Ft. McMurray, AB – 26 November 2018
It seemed at times that the work was being rushed, which made the quality of the work poor in my opinion. I felt this is based on a lack of experience in leadership roles, or upper management that were willing to allow poor craftmanship to occur in order to meet schedule deadlines.

I'm going to leave the review as no comment... work is work, you will have good times and bad times, just take each day one at a time and make the best of it all. try to have fun and learn as much as you can and never stop working!

Ive worked for PCL a few times over the years and liked working for them.. their management can be tough on their employees but they also expect a little more out of their tradesmen than the average company

There are plenty of chances to learn, succeed and be promoted into new and more challenging positions. Company is generally willing to help you get the tickets you need to be successful in your chosen field. Company management tries to find ways to keep the craft working and making money, even if it's not their chosen trade (without forcing people who didn't want to stay).
Worker (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 23 January 2018
You are cattle to this company, no matter how hard you work or your knowledge of your job , if you are not willing to be dominated and pushed to do things unsafely to make them more money, you get passed along. The experience I had with this company was awful and Im sorry i wasted years of my life there
journyman scaffolder (Former Employee) – shell Scottford alberta – 10 January 2018
was with this company only for about 6 months the biggest mistake I made overall. even though the workers themselves was great to work with when it can to management or overall work culture if wasn't the best experience. management was very demanding use threatening techniques to get work done and they always had a push to get things done regardless of the safety aspect of the overall job. I personally wouldn't recommend this company to anyone
