They will lay you off for no reason they don’t care at all about their employees or their families the management is horrible and abusive and racist very discriminatory and very abusive horrible management and horrible company overall management is unqualified and the union protects the company not the employee
Some good people to work with
Everything about this company is absolute trash.
Worked for 4 months but had to relocate due to personal circumstances. Culture was not what I expected, but made the best of it. Very stressful and no support, constant demand and made me feel that they were constantly behind on projects.

I worked at SRI Homes for several years as the boiler operator. It was a great experience working on the system, which started out in the 40s. It is a fast-paced atmosphere and there isn't time for downtime. The company has long been established in Estevan since the 60s. The hardest part of the job would probably be the noise.
In my unfortunately short 2 years with SRI Homes I can say nothing bad about working there when taking into consideration other places that I have been employed. Great Benefits the ability to expand your knowledge and learn anything from framing to plumbing to even electrical with no prior schooling, so its a great chance to try your hand at a trade before you spend money on going to school for it. But unfortunately the available work depends heavily on the current market which has led to a lay-off situation. that being said if the market where to pick up again in the near future I would recommend this place to anyone seeking an entry into the general field of trades.
Benefits, Union, celebratory lunches, etc
During my time with SRI I learned different, and normally unused techniques for electrical. The pay is fair, and after three months of probation you are eligible for union benefits. The work is very run of the mill and fast paced. My leaving was related to the management. I was promised a sponsorship during my initial interview then was later told it was impossible. After that management tried to move me to a different sub-trade. I had gone to SRI only to advance my electrical knowledge and was no longer able to.
Free lunches, unionized, benefits, decent pay
Confusion between workers and management, very political workplace.
I was in the office and far to many "F" bombs and yelling for me. You can hear it from one office to another. Some Great people there. Any and all information that will help you do your job seems to be withheld in this entire business. I will hazard a guess that its all due to job security but cant say for certain.
Good colleges to work with
watching the constant demeaning of people in the plant.
This can be a great place to work. They are eager to train you in all areas of construction. Management really appreciates hard workers who take pride in their work. They pay is top-rate for construction work in Lethbridge. The benefits are amazing - paid time off, health and dental, paid compassionate leave, paid training / certification courses, discounts on materials, etc. There are two main problems with this employer. The first is layoffs. Layoffs happen for at least a couple of weeks every year, but some years you may be laid off for 6 months or more. The second problem is the union. The union will keep you from advancing quickly, because the union prefers seniority over skill, talent, ability, work ethic, merit, etc. Also, the union protects a lot of lazy, incompetent employees. You will be expected to do those employees work for them.
Pay, benefits, training, hours
Layoffs, limited ability to advance, too many lazy co-workers to cover for
lost of people that just slack lots of good people that work their but a lot of people make funny of you behind your back talk a lot of unprofessional from the management...union is a bunch of load unprofessional they do a lot of hiring you get into the union and then the give u a job for 6 to 8 months then out the door on the next bunch of people they see fit
