Labourer/Operator (Former Employee) – Blackfalds, AB – 4 March 2019
I worked for Pidherney’s for one season. It wasn’t bad when I first started, great crew, great foreman and lots of work although the pay was on the low end. I ran a skid steer for them and was promised to be moved up to operating heavier equipment shortly. Towards the end of the season I was moved to an out of town job with a different foreman and was treated like absolute dirt because I didn’t fit it with his clique. After a few weeks of that I was moved back to my old crew and was told by the office I would be hired back the following year. I wasn’t really interested in returning anyway and never received a phone call back from them. I later found out the other foreman that I worked with placed me and a bunch of others on the “do not call back” list. They promise you the world and do not deliver. They’re a shady company to work for and I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone.

pidherneys is great for new hires and green people. they teach anyone to operate equipment that they desire. eventually after about 6 months to a year of working with them, youll realize they put you on the back burner. gets very slow, lay offs.

If you can get in the boys club you will do well. keep the Chapstick handy. Pid's keeps rotating the old equipment out so you most likely wont have to operate old equipment. The problem is they have so much equipment its hard for the poor beat down mechanics to keep up with service and repairs.
Good place to work. Lots of hours. Wages are a little low considering the amount of physical labor.
Back up Pipe layer (Former Employee) – Blackfalds, AB – 9 December 2017
We worked between 50 and 70 hours a week. Sometimes we would go for 2 weeks straight and only get a day or two off. However the crews are made up of good people, and the morale is quite high among workers. I enjoyed my time with Pidherneys but I only wish they could offer better wages.
Equipment Operator/ Laborer (Former Employee) – Rocky Mountain House, AB – 21 December 2016
Pidherney's trucking was a great place to work for as long as you didn't mind long hours and no advancement in pay. but you get lots of different experience such as general labour, and maybe if you lucky even heavy equipment.
Great place to work, unfortantely not enough work at the momment.
Equipment Operator (Current Employee) – Rocky Mountain House, AB – 21 January 2016
I enjoy working at Pidherney's, unfortunately I have to do what I need now for my family and find a stable job that works for us, or else I wouldn't be leaving. Worked with some great co workers, to foreman's, all the way to the consultants for other Company's. I need to keep my options open for our future.
