Have been working with Powell for more than three years. In that time, I have had the opportunity to grow and learn, and I managed to secure a promotion to take on more responsibility. Excellent company with good perks and benefits, including free breakfast and lunch!

Powell is a place that offers endless opportunity and challenges. If you are ambitious and looking for a place to grow and explore ideas through innovation, this place will allow for you to flourish and grow. Fast paced environment with wonderful people to work with. I find this workplace keeps me engaged and challenges me to be my best.

The safety culture is top shelf. I have yet to work at a company that puts safety as the upmost priority for their Employees and clients. Proud to be part of such a safe, innovative and progressive Company that values their employees the way Powell does.
Pros
Work/life balance. Safety culture.
Cons
None

Management has no idea how to run the company especially the new operations manager running around like a chicken with his head cut off, favouritism at its finest my friends

Management has little to no understanding of what the job is or how to organize their way out of a wet paper bag. The pay is great, the days can be long but all in all a decent place to work

Very fast paced workplace that is continuing to expand everyday. You are expected to learn your responsibilities very quickly and execute them. Very nice equipment and tools.

Long hours but people are great and money is good. You will learn a lot about the construction industry. They are rebuilding the company for the better.

Good company to work for but customers are the worst. Recently left and got a supervisor position and seem one of the customers on my site and kicked him off instantly and told him you were rude to me and the tables have turned good buy. Pay is good can’t complain. Con is if you have a 12 hour shift during the morning you might be working at night as well then working in the morning with only 3 hours of sleep
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Long hours no life over work you.

Great place to grow and develop as a professional; works with very notable, high profile, and reputable Canadian clients . Very team-oriented culture. Management open and very approachable — both with respect to day-to-day operations and with to long-term growth initiatives. Generous vacation time, health benefits, education support (not formal policy but treated on case-by-case basis) We have a great team and I am happy to be a part of it.

Dont expect to be trained but it wont matter, you will never be good at the job as per management. Management is always degrading staff. Making them feel as if they are useless and incompetent. All old staff think they are better then all new staff. High turnover in all positions.
Cons
No raises. Long hours. Bullying

Lacking in structure and proper management. Under qualified and under experienced managers that know very little about proper structure and prioritising work. Very High turn around of staff in all departments.

This is an excellent place to learn the construction industry. They really do pay alot of money for safety and training. This is the place where it builds you into an efficient machine but unfortunately all of management feel that toying with people over workers rights and only rewarding them with no work causing them to find new jobs.
Pros
Great experiences. Used to be great pay. Mediocre now
Cons
