Good Challenging work environment with Opportunities
Written by Trades (Current Employee) from Vancouver, BC on 11 December 2018
My ideas and suggestions are always encouraged and supported.
Really good vibe with the young team of trades.
Lots to learn and let’s face it, it’s fun working on equipment this big
Working indoors out of the rain and my safety is a priority
I’m having a lot of fun and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a challenging work environment with - more... good pay
Shift right now is days with weekends off for about 90 percent of staff but I’m told that will change with a new train frequency in summer.
There are lots of opportunity to make a lot of money here if you have the inclination - less
ProsGood pay. Buy us tools. Working on a train that is an important piece of history
ConsNone so far. Loving it
