Good place to start and gain Operator experience
Worked for Wapiti for 4 seasons on a base crew in Grande Prairie. Was able to move up from a shovel to machine with almost experience pretty quickly. Management always seems terribly unorganized especially when it came to project completion dates. I don’t think that I have worked on a single project that we finished on time. So overtime is very limited - more... at the beginning of projects but near the end sometimes we are working 12-16 hour days. I left due to the frustration of lack of opportunity to be trained on different Equipment specifically a Grader. - less
ProsLong hours decent pay. Long weekends off
ConsSeasonal, only have long weekends off.
