Awful
They seem to protect the lazy workers over the hard working people and if you speak up about being mistreated by workers that have been there longer then you are the one who gets let go even if the other person did wrong! And management do so many unsafe things and you can’t talk to them if you wanted to they don’t listen to you at all! So many safety violations! But management was the biggest issue!

Busy Place
A typical day is being on the job site by 5 or 6am and working for 12 hours. Making sure signs were up in the work zone, directing traffic, making sure the flaggers in their zones.

If you want too work lots of overtime it’s the place to work at
West can is a job that requires almost no thinking. It’s a job that will run you into the ground. And u will not see your family or have much of a life during summer months. But that is at least told to you in the interview. The front line workers and on site foreman are there for you in emergencies.

Pros
No

Lunch hrs are paid for by the company and we have lots of time of rest.

Poor life management, Poor compensations, good pay, good management, good team members, great experience provider.
Should be home more for mind resets. More compaensation is needed for clothing and work boots, shameful. Accommodations are paid and should be factored into wage. Some very good people to work with. Recieved a lot of experience on equipment because of my willingness to learn.

It's a good place to work
Still it's a work place there's pros and cons it's like working anywhere else there's always communication problems on the work site or the office you do work with a few good co-workers that know what they are doing and others they figure they can do whatever and the people on the 2-way radios it's a flicking soap opera nothing to do about work it's about Their personal stuff

Hired...then told them I had to give 2 weeks notice at current job.
Got hired....was told all about job over phone. Told when orientation was and told them it was all good. Let them know I needed to give 2 weeks notice at current job and they dropped me. Warning....any company not willing to allow you to give 2 weeks notice is not a company you want to work for. If they cant respect that.....then they won't respect you.
Pros
They hire anyone
Cons
They respect no one

Be prepared
I’ve was with WCS for 4 years, each season worse than the next. No training, or respect, forget orientation, or their policies as it means nothing
I’ve seen the change of 3 HR and safety personnel.

Be warned
Pros
Some great employees
Cons
No respect

Show up ready to work
I have worked at West-Can for 7 years now. Started as a flagger then became a labour and moved to equipment operator.

West-Can always encourages people to increase their skills sets and teaches you how to properly do your assigned task. This winter I got my class 3 so I can drive this upcoming season. West-Can supported my efforts to get my class 3.


Overall, its a great place to work, it really is like a second family on the road. I would not recommend this job to someone who does not want to work long hours and be close to home. This job is for people who want to work hard and go on an adventure during the summer, seeing places you wouldn't otherwise see.


I enjoy the team effort everyone working together to get the job done and seeing the final paved road at the end of the day.


The pay is great, but you need to work for it. Nothing is free
Pros
Great Team culture working on a crew, always learning something new, growing company
Cons
Away from home for long period during the summer, know that going into it

Long Hours, Great Adventure, Amazing Co-Workers
I've worked with West-Can for nearly 8 years now, the office staff are helpful and the crews have always been great in my experience. Working at WCS is a fast paced environment with lots of hours. If you are looking for a summer vacation, I wouldn't recommend working here or for any seasonal construction company for the matter. If you are looking for an adventure, with lots of hours and are open to working anywhere between Manitoba and B.C , I recommend working here. The owners are friendly and are always willing to work alongside you.
Pros
Staff, wage, good equipment
Cons
Working away from home

it sucked and would only recommend this type of job to a single person
long hours and way too long way from home. no communication on days off and not paid to travel long distances. I spent 4 months in manitoba and had to drive back home for a whopping 2 or 3 days off to drive back 16 to 18 hours back to manitoba

Fun work place
over all good company pay is good, having to share your hotel room I will admit is one of the worst things with this company. I got to see lots of places I would have never seen. I got put through my training for three different province's.
Pros
Travel lot's
Cons
Away for long periods of time
