Exciting and Challenging Work Environment
Good Place to work. At the time I was there I feel the project I was on was poorly managed and as such my experience wasn't as positive as others I know who have worked there.

Good company to work for.
The business is still relatively new with processes and procedures in its infancy. The good thing about this place is if you have the motivation to work hard and go above and beyond, you will be noticed for your contributions.

This place WAS great.
When I started, this company was fantastic. They were doing loads of things to boost employee morale, they had intelligent minds and a team like atmosphere... And then Carillion went under.

Everything prior to Carillion and Rokstad parting ways was just simply smoke and mirrors. To mask the fact that their management is caddy and rude, they have no respect for low level employees. They offer a "flexible schedule" but don't take that opportunity, because you'll pay for it.


And if you smoke?! Woo boy. You're getting docked a half hour of pay, even if it's only for 3 minutes per break to calm the nerves. Meanwhile your non-smoking counterparts can go out for lunch every day, or sit on their phones for a half hour without being docked pay.


If you enjoy having a work/life balance, decent pay, flexible work schedule (that's usable without repercussion), and a break (again, without repercussions) Rokstad is not the place for you.


There's something to be said when they've had a 80-90% turn over in less than a year (since I left that could be higher). Their longest standing employee has been there four years. (head office wise).


And HR will not do anything for you. (but if you call the union girl in Payroll she ALWAYS gets things done. Keep it up girl!) And they reward incompetence. It doesn't matter how hard you work, their whole system is built off favoritism.


This company is a joke. It's a sinking ship, don't be fooled by the smoke and mirrors
Pros
Not a single pro... It's a job if you're in a pinch.
Cons
Sinking Ship

Good pay, good guys, but you will work away from home. If you can't work long hours and stay away from this is not the place for you. You will be well paid for your work.
Pros
Great Pay
Cons
Long hours

My Project Manager on site was Fantastic !!

Our Company Head Office was situated in BC. The employees I had contact with in BC were very warm and helpful.


My Management Office in Winnipeg were not team players. It was a little confusing to me concerning most of the members in the Winnipeg office. They eventually lost the contract.


Overall I met wonderful people who are still considered family :)
Pros
Freedom to come and go onsite
Cons
Cold weather

Great seasonal employer
By far my fav place I’ve ever worked. I loved the job. Tons of freedom and recognition for working hard. Pay was great but seasonal work only and benefits are cut off your last day of work.
Pros
Great pay. Paid weekly
Cons
No loyalty to hard workers. Revolving door of mgmt

Pros
always a phone call away needs were looked after for every job area

not secure enough to say it is safe to know you have work next week

rokstad
rokstad is a good company but as for advancement it is suited better for those who are actually linemen or apprentices that have these skills. i enjoyed my time with rokstad and would work for them again.

It's good and bad
Good: co-workers, fair pay


Bad: Processes (what's that?), indecisive management, no structure, policies or guidelines. Bit of an old boys club.



Advice to management: hold senior leaders accountable.
Pros
Good people
Cons
Lack of processes

Worst company I have EVER worked for.
When we were first hired, we were told some great thing, great benefits and some awesome promises. That quickly diminished once management reared their ugly heads and showed us what their true intentions were. Being stabbed in the back was a daily thing, everyone is out to step on you so they can look good and succeed. It's an old boys club yes, but thats not the real issue.

It's young guys who can barely spell their own name, know nothing about computers and they progress into a management position because they know how (and they sure love to do it, right tom?) to demoralize and make them feel like garbage. They actually 'enjoy' it.


Avoid this company at all costs. You are better off panhandling.
Pros
Nothing comes to mind.
Cons
Not enough space.
