Installation & Repair Technician (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB17 May 2018
This company is about part hourly and also has contractors for work for piece rate. Great place to work. The work itself is rewarding when its about meeting new people everyday and providing services for a large company.

Good foot in the door oppurtunity
Lineman (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NS3 April 2018
Decent place to get your foot in the door.
Work there for a year or two then find a better company.
The pay is low and you're just a number to them.
Not very team oriented
Their main language is french and sometimes the work orders aren't very descriptive


Start pay is 15 dollars an hour then they hire people with experiance for much more who don't have a clue what they're doing

Currently looking for a new job with a different employer becasue there is no room to move up

You are just a number
Real Estate/Surface Land Administrator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB26 March 2018
Definitely not a candidate for Employer of the Year award.

Employees are just numbers to them.

Poor communication and French is the language of preference as all correspondence appears in French first.

Very cheap organization, no perks for employees or contractors.
Pros
none

It's a good company if you're looking to get your foot in the door. However, the salary is quite minimal especially for the duties and tasks completed.

Engineering Design Technician (Current Employee) –  Oakville, ON2 November 2017
it was a great cultured work place with great management, however, we didnt have the best job security.

you are required to work a lot harder compared to the compensation provided.

the most enjoyable part of the job was the people i work with, you can look back for personal support and rely for a rainy day.

A witness to the slow decline through...
Design Technician (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON1 November 2017
A witness to the slow decline of this company as it was renamed 3 times and through different owners. Broken promises and lower morale each time it happened.

Management needs a complete overhaul. Deserving employees are always overlooked and the minuscule raises and promotions go to the suck ups. Starting pay is low, raises and minimal to non-existent. Hard work not recognized. Management doesn’t listen to anyone’s concerns, shocked that this company hasn’t gone under at this rate.
Pros
Easy 8 hours when you stop caring.
Cons
Management, pay, benefits.
