IBEW 353 is what keeps me here
Electrician (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON10 October 2018
Very toxic job environment where people have to kiss up to management every little chance they get for a promotion. Management is very unpredictable when it comes to guys in the field. We would be really busy and a lot of good workers would be laid off because "work is slow". The electricians are the only ones getting paid with pension and benefits. Everyone else is getting bare bones.
Pros
A job
Cons
Bad management

Never Enough

At first I was happy to help but when it was never enough it became difficult to get motivated to continue performing at the same level. The company has been mismanaged into the ground.
Pros
Lots of hours available
Cons
No health care, little room to grow

A good stepping stone
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  35 Riviera Dr, Markham, ON L3R 8N47 December 2017
Nothing was organized properly. The job responsibilities were very inconsistant and out of order. Equipment such as computers were slow and out of date.

A lot of staff in my department were not very knowledgeable of their task. Most of them would just delegate their work to me or someone else while they play and chitchat on their phone all day.

My daily routines are sorting invoices, copy/paste/exporting templates from other competitors.

This is a great company to those that just finished school or starting their career.
Pros
none at all
Cons
too many to point out

Don't expect a career here
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON27 July 2016
Most staffs does not have the education or experience to do a particular job or role.

Rewarding and challenging Work
Journeyman Electrician 309A (Former Employee) –  9-35 Riviera Drive, Markham, Ont L3R 8N418 September 2015
Very rewarding, challenging and satisfying work. Helpful and respectful co-workers and supervisors. Necessary tools and instructions (when required) provided. Responsibilities gladly provided and appreciated as experience gained on the job.

Early start and finishing at job sites was much appreciated given the traffic congestion in Toronto.
