Great place to work to make very lots of cash in a small amount of time
Perfect job for those who do not have families, it is very unreliable and not stable. When there is work available you can make lots of money in a very small amount of time which is nice. Days are long, typically 12 hour shifts, have done shifts that are 14 hours however.

I Would Definitely Go Back if They Needed Someone
I really enjoyed working here. The management was like family, and the atmosphere of the place was great. Your paycheque was calibrated to your results - base pay + commission + cell phone + laptop + car allowance/company vehicle. If you are a sociable type of person, this would suit you. You get to go out to construction sites and build relationships with the people on the site and try to expand your market share. Hardest part was the CRM - but that is pretty standard for a sales person, most don't like to do the CRM input.
Pros
Great People
Cons
Followup CRM input

Temporary Work when times get tough
I worked for workforce when the economic downturn had just started to turn its wheels in Alberta. You would have to be there by 6 o clock to even think of getting a job for the day. It was necessary for me, as I had no other options, I persevered even though I lived an hour outside of the city at the time and positions were not guaranteed. I did however have an advantage as a driver, so I would most often get hired to take other clients to and from the office. It was hard labor work, and sometimes you were met with rude people who just would call you "temp" and not even by your name. Which was rough, but not having groceries would be rougher.
Pros
Justin, the manager is a fantastic guy, paid daily
Cons
being ridiculed, not permanent work, low pay

Busy workplace with ability to catch onto extra hours
It was a helpful company in order to gain skills and experience within the construction field. This was a fast paced job and hands on work. These skills I was able to manage and enjoyed.
Pros
Busy, fast paced and was able to catch onto extra hours
Cons
Not always reliable on work

very last minute changes to shifts frequently
A typical day at work would contain a safety talk with the team. Then once the job is ready we would go in the smelter and lock ourselves in to the lockbox. After that we would make our way to the job location and inspect together the hazards. Once we are set we would begin work and most times take breaks frequently on a rotation because of the poor conditions.

I learnt that safety is not a joke and it is very important to practice, Teamwork is essential to completing the job with high quality and that hard work makes a good first impression.


The management is sometimes poor because the control room often change their minds at the last second to do something else, in consequence we must wait around and our work is delayed.


My co-workers are mostly always new employees to Workforce, so I often train them on the job and help them with the challenging tasks.


The hardest part of the job is working in extremely hot conditions for long hours, (12 hour shifts)


The most enjoyable part of the job is finishing the task with quality so the clients are happy and we don't need to return.
Pros
Paid Lunch break
Cons
12 hour shifts

The staff are reliable and easy going, some of the workers they send to sites could use a bit more training and a better work ethic then they have. The pay rarely changed no matter how good of a job that was done, the Income for the job itself was also some what low for some of the work that was made to do.
Pros
Money, Flexible hours
Cons
Low wage, Terrible workers would be sent also, they dont follow through with their terrmination policies
