Overall a good company to work for
HEAVY EQUIPMENT OPERATOR (CONTRACT) (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON16 March 2018
I have no complaints about Taggart management. The wages seem to be lower than other companies but overall a good company to work for. Management was fine, machines were fine, co-ordination and organization was fine. No complaints - a good company with a good atmosphere - just a salary issue.
Pros
Professional
Cons
Lower wages

Cons
Weekend and No benefit

Bonne environnement de travail
Labour (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON6 July 2017
Les journées passe très rapidement car il demande la meilleure production possible.

75% du travail est fait par des excavatrice alors l'effort demander est raisonnable.

Mai appris à poser des pipelines et comment on construire les tuyaux avant de construire une ville.

La meilleure aspects du domaine est le travail d'équipe

HEALTH AND SAFETY ATTENDANT (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, Ontario26 August 2014
Work is a job, which is not necessarily the first place you want to be in your life, but if you find yourself working for this company, like all companies it has its ups and downs... The people within this company the ones you deal with on a day to day basis are none better anywhere. The guys are great!
Pros
People, The pay, the Perks
Cons
Safety, in my opinion, needs an immense upgrade.

Rewarding, pleasant work Environment.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Grenadier Village, Gore road Kingston, ON, CA22 October 2013
A very calm and professional atmosphere. A typical day at work would be to greet potential home buyers in a warm and pleasant manner while showing the models homes and their many features.
During my time spent working for Tamarack, I development skills in office management, phone greeting, professional attitudes, and time management, as well as multi-tasking. The professional and social environment between employees in the Tamarack sales office is again, very warm and personal, during the slower periods. Everyone knows a bit about each other and addresses each other on a first name basis, even management from other offices.

The most difficult part of the job, I found to be, was the many fine details and products Tamarack includes in their superior building standards, and appliances, they build their homes with. A job well done comes with many rewards. Letters from satisfied clients on how impressed with their new home and service they received while planning with employees in the Sales Office and Design Center.
Pros
Flexable part and full time hours. Great company to work with.
Cons

Demanding but honest and approachable.
FINISHING FOREMAN (Former Employee) –  Ottawa22 October 2012
Great guys to work with. They sponsor company golf and hockey tournaments.

VERY BUSY--Be prepared to work hard and on week-ends to achieve closing dates. This is not a bad thing but be aware of how many homes they build.

You will be given all the support you need to succeed. When they know that they can trust you they will back you up all the way. If you make a mistake they appreciate hearing it from you first and will help rectify it. DO NOT blame somebody else.

I would work for them again in a heart beat.
Pros
good pay with xmas bonus, vehicle allowance, bbqs, lunches paid, back-up support.
Cons
week-end work expected when busy, foremen expected to work with tools & maintain schedule.
