Journeyman Electrician (Current Employee) – Airdrie, AB – 14 March 2018
There really is no typical day at Techmation. Most of the work is in the field and you can be pulling wire and cable one minute and then doing some repair or maintenance the next. Construction is a major part of the work at Techmation. The hardest part of the job at Techmation is the time away from family. Each job has a different schedule. One could be 7 on/7 off, 10 on/4 off, 14 on/7 off, 15 on/6 off up to some possibility of 24 on/4 off. The characters yo meet on the job make it an enjoyable place to work. Like every job it has some down sides but these are few and far between.
Unsure of what actually happening no clear picture and information slow coming.

Promises made about employment then then reneged . Tell you one thing and then do something else totally different. Everything had to be done one the supervisors way , you would be doing some thing what one supervisor would tell you to do then another would come by and tell you to do it all a different way and to change everything only to have the first supervisor to come back and give you a hard time for doing it the wrong way and not his way .

Journeyman Electrician (Current Employee) – Airdrie – 8 November 2017
Good company with great Management! They have kept me busy through a very tough economic time, I am very grateful! I have had the opportunity to take on new roles and advance my career. They are proactive with safety, our tool boxes are some of the best I have ever attended. The management group have always been respectful to myself and treated me very well. I would want to retire with this company.
Good people, excellent projects.
None to report, I will continue working at Techmation as long as I can.
Journeyman Electrician (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 November 2017
It all begins with a parole deduction of $ 150.00 for coveralls and a hardhat. Gloves you will find out are your responsibility. Be prepared to spend your weekends taking unnecessary courses on your dime. If that is not attractive enough, bring all your drill bits, taps, and power tools cause you will need them to complete projects (not supplied.) Best of all; The moronic management that keeps breaking “Golden Rules,” by withholding critical information from employees and rectifying the situation by releasing good workers to save face. Do the industry a solid, walk away from this company you are better then this.
Fourth year Electrical Apprentice (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 3 October 2017
When I applied for the job I was told they'd been steadily busy for years, and had tonnes of work lined up. When I got to the mod yard (in Blackfalds) I found that they had truckloads of people driving from Calgary and Edmonton daily, without travel pay. Then they continued to hire people up to two weeks before they began laying people off as the project neared completion. Even within Techmation, the Red Deer office in particular has a poor reputation. Upon getting laid off, I was told I'd receive and email update for more work within the month, after nearly two months I received an email with a three hour window to reply on a Friday so that people could be shipped out Monday. Wouldn't go back.
Journeyman Electrician (Current Employee) – Acheson, AB – 8 June 2017
I have been employed with Techmation for several years and they are a great company to work for. If you are willing to work hard and demonstrate your loyalty, management will recognize this and promote you. There are great opportunities for growth and they do their best to keep you busy during slow economic times. Great co-workers! The company is very safety oriented.

A company where your not just a number but a part of something bigger. Consistent work, although some travel may be required. Competitive wages and excellent benefit packages. The best part is the co-workers. Young core group and easy to get along with, and great learning environment. One of Canada's Safest Employers for Young Workers and one of Canada's Best Health and Safety Culture.
Co-Workers, safety conscious employer, consistent work if your good
