decent place to work, i personally enjoyed it the guys are good, helpful they give you a heads up about management be carful what you say and around whom. management is definitely two faced they act as they're your friend but when it comes down to them or you its always them. if applying they have a high turn over rate so be cautious. and good luck
the New truck and the phone app is great and most of the guys are as well. Plumbing managers are two faced and back stabbing. Your friend one day and your enemy the next. I’m sure they have a lot on there plate but they forget that there job only exist because of the guys in the field. They will schedule you on a night shift with out asking. They will send you out of town when you say you can’t.
A typical work day starts at 7:00 am (could be earlier depending on the job location) with meeting at a company location or actual job site, where supplies and equipment will be loaded into the company vehicle. Technicians work independently or have apprentices support them throughout the day or a combination of both.
Jobs consist of picking up parts & equipment, servicing, demolishing, repairing and construction of mechanical systems from electrical, plumbing, refrigeration and H-vac across southern Ontario.
Overall the management and dispatch team are okay depending on the location you are working out of, with some locations being better than others. The workplace culture is decent but lacks diversity which can be challenging and could take some getting used to depending on the individual.
The job can be difficult as there is quite a bit of a learning curve. You need to be tech savvy or at least have an okay knowledge of how to use smartphone and app technology along with basic data entry skills. There are also a wide array of tools and equipment you must learn or have the knowledge to use and operate effectively depending on the department you are working in. If you have prior experience then you will learn and adapt quicker then an apprentice who is green.
With all that being said the job can be very fun and you can and will learn a multitude of skills if you are willing to learn. Most technicians aren't the best teachers or have the best teaching methods but the ones that do are very knowledgeable and do their jobs very well. Better training and a better - plus...

Work range/location, attitudes, lack of diversity, training/teaching system, lack of overtime hours & lack of hours in the winter
Workplace culture revolved around pleasing those who have been in the company the longest. Even if the technicians had done something wrong, we were not to say it to them. Working here feels like constantly walking on egg shells.
