Generator Technician (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 April 2015
I really don't have to much bad to say about this company, rather than it grew too big way too fast and lost some it's values along the way. The experience was great, the equipment was easy to work on and its control systems were easy to navigate through. The job was challenging some times which made it enjoyable, it kept you on your toes with new challenges. The management did not play well together, they did not like to share there toys in the sand box. They were not very helpful at times because they were too concerned about holding onto there knowledge like it was a big secret and thought we were out to take there job.
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 15 April 2018
This company is the best place I've ever had the pleasure of working. The culture is very team oriented and the owners put a lot of care into making sure that Total Power is a great place to work. The power gen industry is booming and this company is at the top of the market with aggressive goals for growth. As a result, there are lots of opportunities to advance and/or change your career within the company, with new job postings popping up regularly. The people are the best part, everyone is very warm and friendly. It's a very busy pace but the days fly by and you are constantly facing new challenges. If you want to work hard for a great company with some awesome people, then Total Power is the place.
Great culture, great team of people, lots of career opportunity

Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 11 June 2012
Was a job that changed day to day and had multiple projects being completed on the run. The jobs varied from modifying factory generators to meet CSA 282 standards, to building custom generators catered to customer demand as well as rebuild/update jobs. My work varied from sheet metal fabrication, cutting/welding/drilling frames, wiring varying voltage systems as well as testing and troubleshooting (all inspected or supervised by a licensed electrician), various engine work. Everything that was to be fabricated included engineering drawings to follow(as prescribed by the engineer), as well as on the run modifications in order to ensure that the final product fits and works correctly. Regular shop safety and work area cleanliness were a must.
