Good conpany
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.

Poorly run company
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 sucks
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

Great Place to Work
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.

An amazing company to work for!
Great company! Provides great opportunities and lots of room for growth. Amazing managers and co-workers! Fast growing company but still has that family oriented vibe.

Great company to work for!
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.

Very poor management
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

Poor management
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

A company is only as good as the management. With the lack of common sense and experience it's hard to believe how this operation functions. I would not recommend this company.
