I enjoyed every person that I got to work with. There was always something to do as we were a fast paced company with a heavy workload. You always felt like you had accomplished a good days work when it was time to go home.
Pole Framer (Former Employee) – New Westminster, BC – 2 May 2017
This job is unionized so great benefits and job security. The job can be physically demanding for some, but after 2-3 months you will adjust with a medium amount of effort. The hardest part is working within the elements, freezing rain/snow in the cold months, heavy sun with risks of heat exhaustion/sunburns in the warmer months. The culture is the mentality of "Do the bare minimum". If you are the type to want to professionally grow, this isn't the place as advancement is minimal and the job is stale. It can provide a great life if you manage your money well, but no intellectual stimulation. Some risk of obsolescence for the company given the product they manufacture, but not for a while. Good for a simple life as you are relatively over-paid and have steady work. Some slow periods may result in lay-offs for less senior employees
