    Pros

    Great co-workers and some benefits are good.

    Cons

    Lowest pay in the market and industry. Safety on the job sites is terrible because there is no safety and compliance in the field,and you ask to do something about it and it falls on deaf ears. If something happens its on the individual and expect unpaid time off and drug test even if it's not your fault. In due time there will be a bad injury or fatality. Management wants you to be held accountable but no safety and compliance in the field plus the equipment is fixed when the parts are there and the unaccountable mechanics get ready to fix equipment and go home if you don't want to drive a truck in worse shape than the one you just put in the shop. Doing the math it doesn't make good business siense: good safe equipment versus accidents,injuries,or fatalities. Salaried/hourly employees for safety and compliance versus accidents,injuries,or fatalities. Profit sharing will be a tremendously great business decision for ALL employees to their job at its highest level of accountability and performance.

    Advice to Management

    The way it is now get out in the field and help don't be pointing fingers be a manager that's proactive and encouraging. Turnover for those that don't know kills the bottom line and moral/reputation again do the math.

    I have been working at BURNCO Rock Products Ltd full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, regular overtime for majority of the year. Very good at making sure you get the proper training and certifications in a timely fashion, as well as keeping them up to date.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement. Very top heavy in management.

    I worked at BURNCO Rock Products Ltd full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, RRSP matching, nice people

    Cons

    Middle management is horrid, self serving and treat employees terribly.

    Scott Burns is an excellent leader, however, others below him are not.

    Advice to Management

    Watch those middle managers that are implementing their own agendas and do not have BURNCO's best interest at heart

    I have been working at BURNCO Rock Products Ltd full-time

    Pros

    Treated well as long as you are aware of your duties. Micro-managing is yet to be seen and work is steady if you can prove your worth. There is still a sense of pride these days in working for a family-run company, especially one this large.

    Cons

    As a plant worker, too much time is spent babysitting full grown adults. Lower management in my opinion need to be more consistent with punishments/actions relating to infractions and misbehaviours.

    Advice to Management

    As a "boots-on-the-ground" worker, I notice a lot of dissension. Would it be possible to interview the employees and see where they are coming from? There seems to be a large disconnect between management and the "common employees"

    Pros

    Great people at BURNCO. Interesting work

    Cons

    Treated like a number at BURNCO. A pee-on. Morale at a all time low. Upper management does not really know what is going on with the blue collar lower level works.

    Advice to Management

    Why did management think BURNCO could change the way JDE works and not change the procedures and policies at BURNCO to meet the requirement of a ERP system.

    Pros

    There was a lot of hours available and it was also easy to book time off. All the yard boys are nice.

    Cons

    One of the managers is rude to you if you do not meet his expectations. There is not really any indoors to work in so it can get really cold.

    Advice to Management

    try to be more respectful and hold less grudges. get some heaters, signs so the yard boys don't have to remember prices of products. More forklifts with cabins.

    I worked at BURNCO Rock Products Ltd full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Burnco has excellent benefits and safety standards along with regular tool box meetings. Initial training in product knowledge of additives and mix configurations is very informative.

    Cons

    Unfortunately their quality control falls into the hands of the drivers most of the time which makes for a very stressful work relation with superiors.

    Advice to Management

    Put more responsibility of product quality and end product on your quality control and testers, not so much on your drivers. Seniority means nothing . After 13 years still had to work Saturday

    Pros

    It's not repetitive, each day brings a new experience. Great co-workers, and as long as you know what and how to do your job you are pretty much on your own.

    Cons

    My actual job title is seasonal full time, which means in the winter months work becomes extremely limited, and the hassle of having to find work somewhere else well, it's like starting all over.

    Advice to Management

    Try staff rotation, employees who are willing to re-locate to another Plant in and out of Province (even if they are will to for their own re-location) should be given the chance.
