I work with a good crew! They care about our well being. The men and women we work with is what makes the job good or bad! We need better support for our maintenance on our equipment and vehicles.

Pros

Good crew

Not a bad place to learn the industry

Although once you mastered fitting or welding find another place to work, where they value your job. The salary is lower compare to other companies. Most of co-workers are friendly.

Great for starting out when expecting no advancement

Terrible management even worse foreman's, cause accidents and do everything to cover it up, had same foreman destroy a monorail and a crane both causing extreme property damages and damages to the structures themselves and he still works there, worse place to work if you have morals and any industry know how

Worst company ever worked for in my life

Don't even wanna waste my 150 min characters for this company out of my 10years this company was one of the worst of them all if your a local worker from alberta they will try and fire the people and over time they win the reason for that is because they wanna hire people from east coast area

Only when your desperate

Sandblasted , worst paint shop I have worked in very unprofessional and Forman was an absolute narcissist and not very knowledgeable I would not recommend this shop to anyone unless you like to be belittled and talk down to by paint shop foreman constantly .The paint shop supervisors lack any real experience and worst crew they all have very little skill or work ethics and take no pride in their work . Foreman only keeps his job because he has friend in the office any other company would have gotten rid of him he gets people hurt

They have their favorites

Workplace culture is theoretically awesome but the senior management are short sighted and not willing to listen to their staff about how best to progress the company. IT department are unfriendly and run by a megalomaniac who doesn't know anything about the industry. A shame because the rest of the staff are really nice people to work with.

Great co workers

Good group of people, everyone works together to deliver a quality product and safely executed. A large player in the structural field and well established.

Depressing place to work

If you an experience tradesman, and likes to be told that everything you've learned is wrong, this is the place for you. Add in the constant micro managing, favoritism, low moral, and someone looking over your shoulder every minute of the day, you'll begin to think that you committed a crime and this is prison.

Pros

none

Cons

being worried your wasting time by using the bathroom.

Camp Job

This was camp employment in Canada at the "Sands" in Fort McMurray, AB Ca. The work wasn't laid out very well and there was a lot of standing around waiting for someone to make a decision as what to do and where. Met some really good guys up there!
