The worst paying electrical contractor in the city and expect the best. There is no way I recommend this employer to anyone unless they have no self respect or pride in their work.
Pros
None
Cons
The entire company

I started with Strike at Coronation at their Mod Yard, I worked there for about 3mths. They had a real push at Hardisty, so I was transferred there.I remained there for about 3 mths. and when they started to downsize, I was laid off along with about 50 other Electricians. I have nothing but good to say about Strike Energy.

As long as you don't care you'll fit right in. Don't try and do things right as it will be resented. Just do as you are told even if you know it is wrong, will have to be done again, and is a total waste of time. After all it's all by the hour , right? As long as you can stomach it no matter how painfull. The pay was pathetic and they know it, that's why they ask if you are going to quit if you find something better.
Pros
Some of the guys and one supervisor were decent.
Cons
The apprentices run the show and think they are geniuses because they have no mentors.

The shop in particular has a great family environment. Everyone is respectful everyone is helpful so I had a really great time working there. On the safety part however there could be some improvements such as completing group JHAs etc but overall speaking was a really great place to work. got lots of great welding experience and management actually cares about their workers.
Pros
Lots of experience for apprentices. Good money
Cons
Nothing worth noting here

One of the worst and scabbiest outfits in the game. They treat the guys on the tools like garbage and management is beyond incompetent. Avoid this company. And for those who choose to work for these guys, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Pros
J man makes $39hr so it’s better then EI
Cons
Everything

I would stay away! Poor management(minus one person). Not organized. Low pay. If you aren't a bag licker you likely won't make it far. Use discretion if you're thinking about working for this company.
Pros
Most of the guys were decent to work with
Cons
Nearly everything

Strike is an up in coming company that will have room to grow your profession. I am a Journeyman now and looking for something more. The rates are low but for the most part they keep a good hand busy.
Pros
Close to home
Cons
non paid lunches
