Although the work and on-site crews are amazing to work with, upper management communicates poorly to the field creating confusion at times. If you are self sufficient and resourceful, able to play on company politics and enjoy isolation you'll probably enjoy Valard

Terrible company to work for. Pay was really good but unless you can quickly become a member of the boys club you won't last long. If you're related to or a drinking buddy of one of the company "leaders" then I guess you'll be okay.

management is a circle of spiteful, undermining, clueless ppl. They sabotage the good employees who actually care about the company and compensate the clueless, uneducated young empkyess. The ontario management is the worst i have ever seen. Please spare yourself unless your willing to be taken for a complete foll.
Pros
Good work home life balance
Cons

The culture of this company is only the "deceitful, back-stabbing, politic playing individuals survive". If you are intelligent, hard-working, dedicated, proactive problem solver, and excel at what you do, you will not last with this company. You can trust no one, and if you are promised anything, be sure to get it in writing. They don't do performance reviews, raises are based on who you know, not on what you accomplish. Working here was one of the most stressful times in my entire career.
Pros
New office
Cons
Long hours, no appreciation, the more you do, the more you are given to do!

I really enjoyed the type of work and good crews to work with. loved participating in the ride to conquer cancer every year. Leadership in my division was poor and damaged customer relationships. Good pay and perks like a truck depending on the position held. C suite leaders were direct and transparent which was great.
Pros
Decent benefits
Cons
long hours depending on who you report to

Valard Construction was a great place to build my resume . The early years from 2011 -2016 the company was engaged and took care of their employees. The locations of the offices work great for building business and the long term employees are a great team.
Pros
Good starting company
Cons
Long Hours

meet at the shop, find out where you are working and with who. Grab a truck and tools and go to the job and start working. when the job was done you really didn't know where the next one was

Worked the telecommunications side of valard, management didn’t have a clue on how to make profits. The higher ups interfere too often. Had our construction manager replaced 4 times in under 2 years and usually by a friend of the VP. The hours were good 4 day work weeks but that was union negotiated and management attempted to get it thrown out multiple times
Pros
4 day work weeks, lax environment on site, wages were good
Cons
Management is clueless

Started with Valard in 2015 as a camp maintenance worker and as the camp closed due to project completion I moved over to assembly department and have been there since. Lots of room for advancement

Great company, great employees on the Telecom side. Great pay and benefits. The hydro side of Valard decided to close the Telecom side entirely, leaving hundreds of workers unemployed.

The company was great to work for. I enjoyed the team and management as well as the work we did which was directional drilling. The industry is unpredictable and your job is at all times at risk.
