Order Desk Clerk (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 17 July 2019
A typical day during the peak construction season is exciting, busy and fun. During the Winter months,you will be bored off your rocker.
The company culture is pretty good. There are a few divisions throughout North America, yes, this is still a small company as each location employees a small number of staff. You don't feel like a number. You feel appreciated.
The pay scale is a bit on the low side but, the work is super easy.
The hardest part of the job is trying to figure out what it is you're supposed to do. You will self train a lot but, there are people you can call to ask questions and they typically are pretty good at finding you the right answers.
Hot Wire Operator (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 20 September 2019
Wage and benefits are the only good things to say about this company. Its a union shop and has a lot of union politics. After the fact resolution. Employees are negative and hard to work with. Most employees have a i do what i want attitude. New management lacks communication with staff. Promotion is next to impossible unless your a part of the district managers personal inner circle. Its extremely messy on the shop floor with a haze of smoke though out the facility. Health and safety issues tend to get neglected. Multiple layoffs.I had 5 layoffs in 2 years. There is a overall lack of leadership company wide. Negative verbal atmosphere and some violence, in which those employees are still there? Seniority is the golden rule regardless of skill set. example: best worker vs worst worker-worst worker wins job posting based on seniority 100% of the time. Mandatory overtime is often exercised resulting in a poor work life balance.
