Tractor Trailer Driver / Warhouseman in Edmonton, AB

Working with steel is what it is. Most of the guys were good. A couple bad apples that ruin the atmosphere. I witnessed lot of disrespect, and misery, but won’t quit because the pension at 65. Many work place injuries

Not a good atmosphere most guys seemed unsatisfied with management production schedules.
Lots to learn about operating a crane confidently. I guess my learning curve took too long to meet Russel Metal standards. They let me go after two months.

Be warned
Very disorganized from management/Supervisors. Zero communication. If you're new to this environment with little to no experience then you're screwed as there isn't any PROPER training. They put you with employees that haven't been there long (high turnover rates for both employees and management) , nor have the experience to train someone or the few that have been there a long time simply do not want to train new employee's. It's a joke overall to say the least. Would not recommend this job to anyone.

This workplace is the WORST company to work for, fire people for no reason, do not care or want to care about the well being of their employees. Do not train any of their employees properly at all, they assume you should know how to do your job with out doing it. The management at this company is by far the worse I’ve seen ever, do not care about staff are rude to their employees and over work them and expect everything. The supervisors them selves also do no work at all to ensure fair work balance, they never grant days off even if u give them months advance and they expect you to do unreasonable amount of hours in overtime. I have a lot more to say but I’m going to stop there…End thing to take NEVER WORK FOR THEM

Terrible the way they treat people
Employees are just numbers .They care more about there bottom line then your safety.They no all the rules and if you get hurt they will fight you every step of the way.Better company's that care about you out there .
