Good place to work. Treated well and management is pretty good for the most part. Always have brand new equipment which is nice. Hours can be tough if you have a young family. 12hr work days and usually 8hr Saturdays

No direction, hired for labourer put in machine operating. Treated badly, swore at by Forman. Long hours and expected every Saturday. Lack of communication and direction don't ask what they want because it just makes them nasty on site.

Management in Calgary was good as is the equipment.

Their safety guy is a bit of a nutjob.


Operations managers son works there as an operator and he is a self entitled antagonistic person who tries to fight everyone. (little big man syndrome).


Any big jobs that come up they just sub out the trucking and then their own drivers are out of work for weeks. So no job security.


They do try to get you to work nights.
Pros
Good equipment, management was ok
Cons
Nights, no work, managers son, safety was overboard

Excellent place to work with lots of room for career advancement. Management cares about employees and helps to instill a good company culture into all employees. Over the years I have learned many things from coworkers and management and have excelled in many categories because of the unwavering support from upper management. Long hours in the summer, however the pay and sense of pride from doing high quality jobs far out weighs and downside to the hours. Safety is of high priority to this company and it shows daily. If you are looking for a job in a fast paced construction industry Wilco would be a perfect fit, especially if you are looking for a company with a very diverse resume and that is truly a professional in the industry.

My job consisted of keeping the shop clean - the floor and shelves. I also watered shrubs, and grass.

Co-workers are friendly.


Management is easy to talk to.

You want my personal review? Stay clear of this company at all costs. Horrible management rude and ignorant cocky superintendents and foreman (they know who they are) that love to drive around in their fancy work trucks and contribute nothing positive to the job and beat people down and make them feel worthless. Horrendous work atmosphere i have absolutely zero positive gains from working for this company it was a complete waste of time and if i could go back in time and re do it i would never have even shown up for the interview.
Pros
decent newer equipment
Cons
horrible management, low work moral, zero perks, unappreciated

Absolutely no organization or communication at wilco. Very large crews but none speak English or very broken English. So hence that lack of communication, none have the knowledge as well to do what's required so instead of teaching or training they scream and complain. Which of course is very hard to understand, save the headache and go somewhere else.
Pros
Stand around waiting to work
Cons
To many ppl that have no clue

We begin the morning with a safety meeting and start working on digging trenches with a mini hoe. Do fusing of pipe, make swing joints, and install them.

I learned how to fuse, install and operation of machinery. The mini hoe, and the trencher, as well as a portable Pipe fuser.


Management, very friendly and structural environment.

My co-workers were great. Currently still friends with a few.
