All the foremans are great guys to work under.
Construction Labourer (Ancien employé) – Vancouver, BC – 15 janvier 2015
A typical day at work, i FOB into my site (we alternate sites all around Vancouver because most jobs are short). The foreman tells us what were doing today and who will be doing what. Usually at the start of the job we demolish a lot of it. Clean it out into bins and it gets taken away. The management come to each site almost daily to check if we need more bins or materials and if we will finish the job on time. My foreman's are great, most are very relaxed and let you do things your way as long as you get the job done safely. My fellow laborers are some of the best friends i've made. When you're working in a dry dusty loud intense environment all day together, you know how everyone is feeling. Everyone helps everyone, lots of things are 2 or 3 man jobs. by the end of the week we know everyone's back story and sometimes party after work, since we worked till 1am or 3am on some site. The most enjoyable part is having fun demolishing, Chatting while were cleaning up and of course bonding after work.
Indoor site, lend you complete set of tools while you are employed.
Some sites are farther away than others and some of the shifts are not very desirable.
