BTA Sprinkler Fitter Apprentice 3rd Yr (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 30 April 2018
While working there it was great I knew the people and worked well with them. They have a small office location and easy to get to. The road supervisor keeps his workers going with little down time when jobs are available to place workers on.
Sprinkler Foreman/Installer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 May 2017
This company is a fantastic company to work for you will always have the support from upper management in any decision that you as an employee makes. My only regret is the fact that I quite to go to a lesser company.
Fire Alarm Technician (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 April 2017
Management was really unprofessional and unexperienced. I found the lower level management was the worst and would constantly sabotage each other's reputations or create huge problems out of doing just what they are supposed to do. There is a real entitled culture with office staff across country and lack of ethics. I wasn't there long but it seems that no one knows what they are doing except the technicians who I found to be personable and skilled.
Not much work, recomend salary
Junior management will freak out over day to day operations
Shop Clerk (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 3 March 2015
It is always demanding and challenging but employees are treated fairly. Management is not micro-managing and has faith in their employees. Co-workers are friendly but expect a great performance from you.The hardest part of the job is the constant demand of multi-tasking at all times. However, the most enjoyable part is finishing early on Fridays.
The company expects the best from its employees including commitment to work, motivation and productivity but at the same time it values family and work life balance. It provides many opportunities through outings, dinners and contests for the employees from different departments and their families to get together. As an employee of Viking, you are part of its family.
Estimator/Sales/Contracting (Former Employee) – Concord, ON – 16 December 2012
Good Monday morning, I would sift through invitations, get current progress reports and fill my calender for the week. I have learned to problem solve and and provide the best possible service to the customer. Pleasing the customer and having a profitable project pleases management, the worker gets noticed and future projects are closer. Co-workers have to be treated with tre respect that they deserve because your working future depends on them. They are the people you depend on when ever in doubt. The hardest part of the job was getting to and from appointments in this congested Greater Toronto and surrounding area.
The most enjoyable part of the job was pleasing the customer, and management.
