Safety First traffic control
Traffic Control Person (Seasonal) (Ancien employé) – Amherst, NS – 31 juillet 2018
While the job itself was satisfying, the management was a joke. After all the training I did in safety, and having that as a keyword in the job description, it was stunning to see how much safety was ignored. While on the job, we were constantly told to do whatever the contracting company wanted us to do, whether it was legal or not. The fact that management were telling us to basically ignore all the training that we were given in order to keep a contract was quite alarming. When I was on the job, it was my responsibility to make sure of the safety of all involved; my workers, the company we worked for and any public people who had to be in the job zone. The fact that this was done for minimum wage and long hours should suggest that the company should be treating it's employees as a resource, not disposable income.
