Field Services Technician (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 4 September 2017
The pay is good, but the hours are long and the conditions can be tough. Working on the road constantly can be a struggle. While there, I felt like management listened to the concerns of its employees. Because of the conditions there is regular turnover and there are lots of opportunities to gain skills and advancement for those who work hard and are able to stick it out.
There really was no such thing as a typical day.
The upside of travelling is that you get to see parts of the country that many people dont.
Tower Technician (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 31 January 2018
Unless you have an office, shop, or yard position, expect to do a fair amount of traveling. That shouldn't come as a surprise since communication towers exist everywhere there is cell service and even places that don't. In the winter, the vast majority of jobs were within an hour or so of Surrey so I was able to come back home at the end of every day. In the summer that was not always the case and I would sometimes be on the road for 2 to 3 weeks at a time. There was never a shortage of work and I always got at least my 40 hours.
You're constantly travelling and get to see a lot of really cool places you'd never get to go to
You're constantly travelling, working outside in the winter can be rough
Aerial supervisor (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 2 September 2017
If you want to be treated like a number, and only be home 1 week of every 3 months, this s a great job. If you're single this would be a good job for you, upper management is really bad. if you work hard you get treated like garbage, but if you can sweet talk you will most likely get a raise and a promotion.
Great work enviroment. Co-workers are amazing akong with management, best work enviroment I've been around.

Usual day consists to prepping the work truck for the day, getting tools and work materials in and on the trailer if needed. Once you get to the job site set up your rigging. I learner a lot from this job, how to use basic to heavy power tools. Hardest part of the job was the climb can range from 100 - 1500 ft Every day was fun and knowledgeable
Great enviroment to work and get Motivated every Day
