welder (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 14 November 2017
Have been a welder's helper for six months with two & a half months shop experience. Work place was enjoyable as I learned from cutting pups to specs & fabrication to specs on blueprints-welders helper. Most enjoyed part was at end of shift when management bought farewell dinner to employees.
Welder Apprentice/ Skilled Laborer (Former Employee) – Fort Saskatchewan, AB – 4 January 2017
Great job/work life balance. Salary and benefits could be better. If you needed time off, they gave it to you. Though if they needed people to work overtime, on your days off, they only selected certain people. Didn't give everyone that chance. But overall a good place to work.
JM Pipefitter (Current Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 14 December 2016
I have only been with the company since Nov. 2016. We are about to break for Christmas and due to the lack of work through out the province, it is unclear of future work at this time. The company has been good to me, as have management and co-workers. At this time, I can not give more detail for work/life balance, wages and benefits

QC Inspector (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie AB – 13 May 2014
I liked working for Tradesmen. I found that teaching junior employees was really rewarding and the benifit plan was great.
I would tackle my job with great energy on a daily basis. I continuously kept the QC binders as up to date as possible and tried to stay on top of the visual inspections and checking on the welders at the same time as making sure the materials and fittings were proper for the jobs at hand.
Employees were new to workforce lots of employee mentoring
