General Labourer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 January 2018
I spent most my time doing general labor. It was cool to work with all the advanced manufacturing machines. Lots of switching task especially when things are busy which could be stressful at times. There is a big focus on quality which is good. Management was good too and had bbqs and christmas party for us. The hardest part was seeing some people get laid off in downturn. The best was being able to work lots of OT.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 25 November 2014
a Typical day would be a 12 hr shift on your feet in a hot welding bay doing manual labour. Learned how to operate an overhead crane and forklift but wasn't certified in either. Management was very distant and showed little appreciation. Co-workers were easy to get along with but very lazy and unmotivated. The hardest part of the job was pulling the weight of others who would sleep or just not work and knowing they get paid more than you. The most enjoyable part of the work was being able to listen to music while I worked.
