Easy but repetitive job
REPORTS CLERK (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC20 February 2019
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.

Inspections Division (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC3 September 2018
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
Easy to get along with everyone

Small office with few jobs going

Lower management drama queens
Fire Alarm Technician (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB27 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.
Pros
Not much work, recomend salary
Cons
Junior management will freak out over day to day operations

A job at Viking
Shop Clerk (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON3 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.
Pros
Free lunches from time to time
Cons
Skipping lunch from time to time

Reports Clerk (Former Employee) –  Saint-Laurent, QC26 January 2015
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, ON16 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.
Pros
facing new challenges each day.
Cons
traffic congestion
