Overall it was good to work with Powell. Cooperative environment but very competitive. High expectations due to manufacturing and nature of business. Work life balance is observed.

I hope to be involved with Powell for years to come but the current department I am in is going through restructuring and so far, not for the better.I would recommend waiting for the dust to clear before applying as a service representative in Canada.

Any other department, as far as I know works well and has a good balance between work and life.
Points positifs
Work indoors
Points négatifs
Long hours. Low recognition

I have been working for Powell Canada for over 4 years now. I have never worked at a place with so much growth opportunity for individuals willing to learn. I have worked in places throughout Canada and I have never felt as respected and valuable as I do since beginning at Powell. Your work and contributions do not go unnoticed. They have programs to recognize employee efforts and to better connect with their employees to ensure needs and concerns are met. Management is supportive and encourage growth. They provide training material and programs and tools to learn and succeed. In addition, the employees at Powell come together as a team especially at those peak moments and make you feel supported rather than stressed out and on your own. If I could give Powell a higher rating, I would!

In their interview process they tell you that they don't just hire guys on to finish jobs and then lay them off; that they keep the guys they have and will just switch up the shift when it's slow. They did exactly what they said they don't do...they hired a bunch of guys to get work done faster and then lay off after a few months of work. We were told there was work for years. It's about who you are friends with within the company; not how you perform. Benefits are supposed to start after your probation period. They never allowed me to add my family to my benefits and blamed it on the benefits company; it was months after my probation period and my family never had benefits the entire time I worked for the company. It was all tactically done so that benefits were never added and then they just laid off the workers. There were other employees dealing with the same issue so it was not just a one-off time. They don't support the apprenticeship program; they hire skilled labourers to do apprentice work so they can pay them less. There is communication issues within the company as many workers choose not to speak English. I would not recommend working for this company.

I'm not sure who's writing those negative reviews (maybe fired employees?), but Powell is a great place to work from my perspective. Management keeps you up-to-date and truly cares what employees think.

It's not a place you can coast. We work hard but I feel like I matter here. We are always trying to be better. I've seen so much improvement over the past 6 years.

This is the worst company I ever work. Lots of managers fighting for the power and the recognition of top level, ego is the physiology and a lot of policies that managers never follow through.

co-workers are patient and understanding, Powell has a great atmosphere and work culture, also management is very easy to work with. I highly recommend Powell to any college or university students looking for summer employment. Powell gives you a great opportunity to learn about low and medium switchgear while giving you an idea of what working in the industry will look and feel like.

1.Well below industry wages - which means they get inexperienced people.
2.Mass confusion, More managers than workers. Just like a soap opera day in day out with employees and mangers constantly arguing and Backstabbing each other and just plain disrespectful and cancerous place to work.

3.Lies, lies and more lies. They don't Care about there employees. They'll tell you what you want to here.

They say there's lots of work or keep you busy but soon as it's slow- layoff.


My suggestion. Look for another job not worth the headache!!
Points positifs
Lots of time off
Points négatifs
Everything

Management was poorly organized. Took too many short cuts to put lives in danger. Valve division management does not how to communicate effectively. More like a shut up and do your job kind of feel even though there was never enough work due to. They say core values is important but there was none

I hated working for Powell. Middle management treats you like a child and there is so many middle managers to workers. It is long days working there and the rules seems to be no end in rules and some just seem unreasonable. If your sick you are sent to 3 different people to be given the ok to go home😂.


I'm glad to be free of this employyer.
Points positifs
Clean Shop
Points négatifs
Benifites are not fully covered by Powell.

Toxic work place with lots of backstabbing and lazy foreman’s. coworkers are hostile and threatening due to job safety. They will go out of there way to make you look bad to get brownie points from higher ups. The lead hands and foreman’s are lazy and arrogant. Supervisors are passive aggressive and two faced. Everyone plays politics to kill time.

I started with Powell as a contract welder in February of 2019. I went in for 3 days work as a contractor. They liked my work and personality. I've since had almost 500 billable hours of work as a contractor. The Management is fantastic. I get along with everyone there. The lunch meals are brought in about 2 times per month and BBQ's seem to be about every month. The culture is great.
Points positifs
excellent team atmosphere
Points négatifs
30 day wait for pay as a contractor

Powell is a place that likes to act like their a big company but is pretty disheveled and penny pinching. They hire one week only to lay off a a couple months later. Saw a lot of good employees lay-ed off ( while they kept the useless ones) which were never called back when it does pick up the few months a year when they have work. Management seemed to only care about the office employees and none of the employees on the floor. My Manager was a complete imbecile who only created problems and never solved any when you needed help . Only sucked up to the hierarchy. Safety is pretty pathetic, it appeared to be there only to empress clients. Don't give a hoot about employees. American outfit that is used to having Mexicans working for nothing. Unfortunately managers buy into that culture. I worked with a lot of good people that will never work there again. That's why their always recruiting. They like to sell new employees on cafeteria and working inside but don't buy into it. Its all a facade!
Points positifs
Free parking, short term job.
Points négatifs
Low wages, Little advancement, Poor safety. A Manager and Supervisor for every 3 to 4 employees.
