Fun Workplace. Upper management needs work. Wages are low.
Safety Advisor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 March 2018
A lot more responsibilities outside actual job scope for the same money agreed upon hire date. Management are not organized and shady. Workplace culture was great and was fun to go to work. Hardest part of the job is dealing with head office and management.

Greatful to have had the opportunity to gain some experience working in commercial construction. I got to work with some excellent trades people and get a taste for how a busy construction site operates.
Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 21 December 2017
Senior Management had very little experience in the work which was being bid on. Very poor workplace culture was encouraged making for extremely stressful work environment. Would not return by choice but it could have been an excellent division if it had been managed better.
Some good people hired to start the division
Management cultivated a very poor workplace culture which created constant personnel turnover
