Work all over the GTA.
Full time work and opportunity for overtime.

Early morning starts and long days/weeks (especially after working six days a week) in difficult work environments.

A good company to work for in order to stay busy and get lots of hours.

Slow paced, many management issues, other companies pay more.

Kind of got led on with this position, hardly ever anything to do and when there is the pacing is very slow. Lots of time sitting in the office waiting for something to happen.


No challenge, not a good position for a young guy, recommend to an old man perhaps. The entire staff is 10+ years older on average. Hardest job is to stay awake. Enjoyable part is the rare occasion when there is work to do.

training takes about two days they basically train you as you go along. co workers are rushing to the job so sometimes you dont get to do things yourself they just tell you and then move on

The job is easy to pick up with minimal experience required, however the tasks are very repetitive. The management is unorganized and the workspace is bland. A typical workday tends to feel very long with little sense of satisfaction at the end.

Based on employee surveys, Viking was ranked as one of Canada’s top 50 Employers. Very supportive local management team and a head office that helps maintain consistency across Canada. A corporation that doesn’t feel like a corporation. Proud to be part of the team and highly recommend to interested candidates.
Pros
Very busy
Cons

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.
Pros
Easy to get along with everyone
Cons
Small office with few jobs going

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.

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.
Pros
Not much work, recomend salary
Cons
Junior management will freak out over day to day operations

It is a fast paced industry with a lot of self learning. Autonomy is a must have asset in order to identify and apply standards.

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.
Pros
Free lunches from time to time
Cons
Skipping lunch from time to time

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.
