Avis d'employé sur BNE Contractors
Great learning experience
Learned to polish and finish concrete floors. Really dirty environment but a great place to learn everything there was to learn about handling concrete cutters, buffers, polishers, grinders etc..I loved the long hours but unfortunately being sent out of province where special licences were required to work there and not having those in place ahead of time made it very difficult to work. Unpaid travel from one province to another was also not easy on the pocketbook.Hard on the knees and hands until I was able to get used to the vibrating of the equipment.

I told them on my phone interview my work skills and experience, I started working for this company August 10th , 2020 Everybody in that crew was new including myself The foreman of that crew was very nice and easy going. The first week started beginning was good running smooth then Wednesday came where we worked 12 hours in the sun and Forman had asked everyone if everyone wanted to sleep in and come in late the next day some agreed some didn’t I slept in the next day and drove right to the site In the morning , when usually I’d go to the shop and get a ride to work site, we spoke on the phone for the interview they knew everything about my situation and still didn’t care because I don’t in trouble for that day for sleeping in when the boss had offered and I accepted The next week after I was at work till 2:30 pm on Wednesday the 19th I went to Forman and said I’m not feeling well and that I’m going to stop for the day and go home didn’t want to am hurt myself or other He had said “ if you have to go then you have to go “ I obliged and said see you tomorrow Also have a Doctors note from my family doctor from that day but I still got a call from the office saying I just left the premises without saying anything which is very incorrect then proceeded to say I’m not working for the rest of the week due to that and she had also gave me a lot of problems and grief over the phone when I was just protecting and defending myself they made it seem I was doing negligence when that wasn’t the case also had told me I’m wasting her time on the phone very rude of Heather but I - plus...
Poor experience, long hours, too much travel. Very high turn over of employee's. Expected to work extra hours and defer overtime to regular hours. I would not recommend working for this company.
If you like traveling to dirty factories all over Canada
Away from family for extended periods of time

We encourage you to speak with your manager and / or your union steward about your concerns. We will happily explain any terms of employment or policies to provide clarification. Field installers typically work 8.5 hour shifts and it is not our practice to defer overtime, ever. Fair wages are paid as per the collective agreement. Travel is a requirement of the job on occasion as we perform installations from coast to coast across the Country, which is a great opportunity to see our beautiful Country on the company dime. Out of town work isn't for everyone and we respect that, but our employees are always fairly compensated for their time and hard work on all projects, local or out of town.

I am very sorry you had a bad experience working with us. Your account of expectations for additional hours and OT deferral is incorrect though. All employees are paid fairly and properly. We are up front about travel expectations in our job posts and throughout the interviewing process, and many of our employees enjoy the opportunity to travel the country! Yes, employee turnover can be high at times as it can be difficult to find hardworking team members who fit with our company culture which is based on teamwork, reliability & professionalism.
