Skilled Labourer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 September 2018
I spent just over a month here and then got canned due to downsizing? Sure it makes sense, except when literally DAYS before canning me they were telling me and everyone else to get winter gear, and advising me to get prescription safety glasses and much more. Easily $600+ not including the extra tools they had me buy and were telling me to buy. I went out and bought all these tools and everything I was told to, and for what? To use once!? They didn't give me any reason aside from downsizing, the person who hired me is now ghosting me by not returning calls or emails, and they did this to several guys on site.
No warning and make it promising to last a long time, REALLY screwed over some families including my own. I was relying on this work and didn't bother looking for other work because I was guaranteed work all winter almost every day from the 2 main Foremen on that bridge.
This company is a joke and if they call you for work, just hang up the phone because it isn't worth it. 350 hours before hitting your benefits. 10 hours a day, about 1.5 months before you get benefits. BUT you never will because before you can hit it, they'll have you laid off so you can't use them and they will hire someone else to take your position and start over. I wouldn't send my enemy here.
False hope, make you spend money on things unneeded, terrible management
