Foreman/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 19 March 2018
I worked here for 2 years, year round which was great. They only keep the foremen and a few lead hands over winter. Wages were good, a team of designers (glorified sales people) and a full time mechanic so no shortage of work comming in. Owner of company is slightly over involved annoying managers and workers. Crews always told to try and beat the hours for each job so company can make more money which is fair enough but there was no reward for workers when the hours were beaten, so very counter productive work environment.
The landscape manager is out of his depth and unprofesional, he often clashes with designers, workers and clients.
