Bad experience, very little positive for me to say!
Carpenter/ Foreman (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB20 mars 2019
A carpenter's position is that of a glorified laborer. Demolition, concrete, hoardings, etc. Not a lot of opportunities for a carpenter to really use their skills if they have experience and enjoy using it. The guy in charge of field staff is a military wannabe with no P.R. skills what so ever. During my years at Delnor, many dedicated and skilled carpenters quit because of having to deal with this guy. Between the favoritism and total lack of respect he shows the guys in the trenches, best bet is to try and have as little to do with him as possible! Job security is for those who suck up to the right superintendent (or Field Supervisor). If you have any self respect and stand up for yourself when being taken advantage of or mistreated, they will punt you in a heartbeat, with zero notice. So be prepared to take it you-know-where or move on. Met some good guys in the field, but how some are holding supervisor rolls is mind numbing! The culture is so-so, depending on the site and the Super. Work/life balance - flexible when needing personal time; appointments, etc. Safety is high priority, which is great, but hard to turn a blind eye when the Super lets clients cruise through work areas without any P.P.E. Some guys are happy there, as for me - lousy experience! I am embarrassed to have to put them on my resume!
Points positifs
Pay was decent.
Points négatifs
Management, Field Super., favoritsm, lack of respect.

A Typical day at work would consist of a small safety mtg and then a schedule of work to be completed for that day.
Points positifs

Points négatifs
No salary review in last 4 years

Great people in Calgary
Superintendent (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB14 avril 2018
When I started here it was great, good people in Calgary . The buckets are very tight and does not allow for site help.
The COO from Edmonton is a control freak. However the staff in Calgary seam to operate ok with his enfluence .
Jobs were varied and interesting. The pay was mid range and possible to increase. They seamed to go through a lot of people and a lot of superintendents came and went.
They don’t define what a labourer or carpenters helper really is.!! And they move them around way to much!!! The people who hired me already moved on do to lack of jobs and budget .!!
Points positifs
Good people
Points négatifs
Edmonton should leave Calgary alone to do there own thing.

Good place to learn
Carpenter (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB10 janvier 2018
Great place to start out, or to make a career for ones self. The wages weren't that competitive, and the not having overtime was a deciding factor when I left

Great work/life balance
Apprentice Carpenter (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB18 mars 2016
A long term work site working with consistent co-workers led to a feeling of belonging in such a big company.
Understood the needs of a single mother which led to the long term employment I was able to enjoy with the company.

Great company if you are mindless
Carpenter/Supervisor (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB26 mai 2015
The guy in charge of field personnel is too much of a control freak and will railroad a person he doesn't like.
Most of their supervisors are very good however there are couple that i am amazed are still employed.
The office and the field personnel are very disconnected, and as a result employees tend to ignore company policies for fear of getting on the wrong side of their supervisor.

Interesting to note that none of the good quality guys seem to last long. it seems they aren't interested in investing and rewarding the successful.
Points positifs
Short hours, garanteed work
Points négatifs
short hours, not very challenging

A little about a day at work
Superintendent/Carpenter (Employé actuel) –  Kelowna, BC16 février 2015
A typical day at work was work getting things done that need to get done that day. Learned a lot about different trades. Management try to keep us up on everything that is going on. All the co-workers where awesome we all worked really good together. Fixing other trades screw up. Most enjoyable part of the job was doing different jobs.
Points positifs
