As someone who did not have previous work experience, I was glad to be hired by GeoPro Consulting. I expected a low wage and that is what I got, but I wish I was paid more because the work can be so physically demanding (I was hired as a driller), and the hours can sometimes be long (10+ hours in a day). I have learned a good amount at this company, but working here requires a certain level of independence and self-drive. Communication and organization is a weakness for the company at times, and I found myself having to seek out information by myself when I was not given adequate directions or instructions.
Points positifs
Good first job for experience, flexibility with respect to which days of the week you work
Points négatifs
Low starting wage, long hours, physically demanding at times, inadequate communication and organization

The company is growing in this difficult time, and we have more projects. It means I get busier but it would be better than sitting around. People are super busy and serious about their works, but keep a sense of humour and it eases tensions and lowers stress levels. Most people have good work ethics, and the workplace culture is good. Considering the company is only 5(?) yrs old, it's pretty well organized , and the managers answers my questions and ask my opinions, so I don't have many problem.
Points positifs
Free snacks
Points négatifs
Free snacks run out very fast

My previous employer said my job was important, but they hardly treated me as a important person. My supervisor at GeoPro respects me and answers all my dumb questions during her crazy busy hours. She's very patient. and I learnt that it is the company culture to "share the knowledge" and "answer the questions". I am satisfied to have a nice supervisor and company culture.

I am a current employee. There was some chaos in the beginning of the pandemic, and I have seen some people leave after a few days/weeks of employment, and it made more chaos. however I have seen managers and senior employees put extra effort to survive in this difficult time and improve the working conditions for the employees at the same time. And we are still surviving, and actually receiving positive feedbacks from our clients. The working conditions are much better. We are even expecting the Christmas bonus now!
Points positifs
nice people
Points négatifs
sometimes too busy, but it's ok

It is great to work with Professional Engineers and I learn a lot. They don’t give me orders only but actually work with me, and are good examples for work ethics.

I never worked for this company and having operated a successful consulting business for 10yrs I understand most opinions of former employees, but operating a new business is a stressful endeavour also and some may experience growing pains during its success. My low review of the company is because I was notified of an interview request a few days beforehand and then the HR Manager emailed me 1hr prior to the interview while I was driving there and cancelled stating the following: Good morning J....I was just advised that a bilingual applicant is required for this post.At this time, we will keep your information on file for future job postings. Thank you for your time and I apologize for the inconvenienceSincerely,CThere wasn’t even a question about whether or not I spoke a second language. She didn’t even formally cancel the interview but instead told me she’d keep my information on file.....what for lady, to cancel on me one hour before the interview again! After setting up childcare and spending money I didn’t have on fuel, I’m given a lame excuse for ‘cancelling’ the interview (via email) and received no phone call either. This person was impressively unorganized, dysfunctional and unprofessional. You need an excellent HR Manager when it comes to representing a business. If the employment rate is high due to turnover, then it’s not the owners burden to carry....its HR’s for a faulty screening process. As a side note, I actually speak 3 languages from my global travels, but thx for asking. Also, knowing now what the starting wage may have been........meh, - plus...

It's a fast pacing company. Everyone is helping each other. A good environment to practice what I have learned from school and obtain practical experiences in the field. The company is accommodating my personal request as long as it is feasible. Daily start: around 7:00AM Daily finish: around 5:00PM As a hourly paid employee, it really depends the work I have done in the day.
Points positifs

Geopro is a developing consulting firm that provides ample opportunities for whoever is up to pursue a career in the consulting world. It has a fast-paced, friendly and career-oriented working environment. On one hand, Geopro has a high expectation of its employees. The company is involved in large municipality projects because of its quality of work and reputation in the industry, and the seniors want you to work hard for those standards. So the job can be difficult for those who has little to no knowledge of geotech, hydrogeology etc. On the other hand, the seniors are exceptionally forgiving towards new employees. Unlike other small firms, where "you stumble and you leave". In Geopro, You can "learn from your mistakes", and the senior "show you the ropes". (Of course that does not mean you can slack off) I joined Geopro in the COVID-19 period. The pay was not competitive. But once i started to work, I found the owner was generous with spending money on getting his employees geared properly. When the business was slow and the profit was low, i am comfort with my pay on top of the invaluable working experience. At the end of the day, no one becomes rich by working for others. Here is my 2 cents before all the haters down-voting me to oblivion.

I got an interview over phone, and the HR insisted on knowing my background ethnicity, I didn't tell so he started digging on and asked about where is the university I graduated from is located! and he didn't care about the university itself! After we agreed, he sent me a message telling me to download an app and connect it with his phone number, I just looked at the app rate and found it 1 star out of 1250 review! all reviews are talking about how the app is not secure and stealing info...etc and ended up sending him a message of refusal to start working with them !

I want to share the worst experience I’ve ever had. Starting from the interview, the owner will call you suddenly without any notice. And he wants to start to work on the same day you got an interview. While, he will ask you to do job training for 3 weeks without payment, which they call ‘voluntary job’. I was hired as a geotechnical technician however, they will start to teach you about coordinating work which is not bad, but you will get tons of work day and night. What I do not like the company, most of workers are newbie as you, so they really do not know what they do. You can ask a couple of questions to your coworkers, but keep in mind they also entered the company a few months ago. However, I believe people are nice and kind. Here are the lists what I experienced at GeoPro 1. The manager and owner send messages over the weekend, weekday even after 10pm. 2. While we are working at home, they suddenly call me and ask for meeting at office without any notice, but it was useless meeting. 3. They pay less, you might start from 15 or 16 dollar. Keep in mind, you need to work day and night. 4. They call me to ask for work at 9pm. I always need to stand by for their order. 5. Your coworkers will leave soon or later. They are also stressed out. I know it is hard time to get a job and opportunity during this period, but please do not waste your time and energy at this company.

This, of course, requires adaptability to fast-paced environments when entering these types of fields of work and we are understanding that not all personality types suit these types of environments.

Do not work here stay far away. Management micromanages but still fails to bring quality work. Training is a joke. No one cares about health and safety. Coring asbestos without proper ppe. Abuses salary workers, and then likes to blame management incompetence on field techs. Company is a joke. Do not work. Promises are given out but never held. Expects workers to be greatful for a job thatbpays lower than competitive market rates.

Overall you should want to work at this company to gain invaluable experience to further your career. This company definitely rewards hard working individuals with promotions regarding more difficult work you wouldn't find in any other company. The only drawback would be the salary, but in my opinion the experience far out weighs the financial compensation. You should work here.
