My time working for Wapiti Gravel Suppliers has been nothing short of new and different experiences. I've learned to adapt to different situations quickly along with knowing how to deal with certain situations that are presented.

Can be a good job... I was let go randomly because the foreman had a personal problem with me. No call for work and then told to go hand in work clothes. If you can find a good crew that you clique with then this is a great job. Long hours, great money. Sucks when it rains though.
Operator (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 22 August 2018
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 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.

Friendly atmosphere. I learned many plu codes. Management seemed very involved and caring. The hardest part of the job was being on call and the most enjoyable was the interaction with the general public
