    I have been working at Ledcor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - ability to travel - pay can be good - company vehicle

    Cons

    - Health and Safety - Many of the drivers don’t have a full drivers license and lack experience. ( Explains the high amount of vehicle repairs and collisions). - High employee churn rate ( people constantly coming and going). - Wage, the bulk of the employees earn less than a thousand bi - weekly. - Politics, you have to know someone in order to move up, education/qualifications don’t matter. It’s all about who you...

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is Ledcor’s brand is diminishing. The number one value of ledcor is safety, this is no longer something that is talked about. Ledcor is well known in the construction industry, stick to what you are good at. Having a sales business hiring 18 year olds to go door to door is killing the Ledcor brand.

    I have been working at Ledcor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    At Ledcor you’ll find good people to work with. There are plenty of policies and guidelines, a variety of good benefits, and periodic events you would expect to find from a large private company. HR tries to create a unique culture by homogenizing the Ledcor experience through mediocre initiatives like True Blue and Ledcor Cares in hopes of creating a sense of belonging.

    Cons

    What you’ll find is that not all people feel valued and respected and don’t have access to the same opportunities as the majority do. For the silent minority, representation, recognition and support for diversity does not exist. When you peel back the thin veil of people and culture, there are real challenges of diversity without inclusivity. From inappropriate comments leaders make in meetings, to a visible lack...

    I have been working at Ledcor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great to make some quick cash and do a touch of travelling

    Cons

    All commission pay, only one of every ten hired make good money rest are to pad stats that make the company money but not its workers. Micromanaged life and underqualified middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Pay base salary and make an effort to develop sales employees instead of focusing on sales figures. Get managers who can lead teams instead of having the ones who can sell the most overpriced electronics lead

    I worked at Ledcor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    LTS trains you, gives you all your tools, a company vehicle and uniform. Piece rate pay means you have no limit to what you can earn. They provide best practice tips so you can be efficient and earn more. There is plenty of support from field managers and in-house training team. Good benefits and opportunity to advance is you want. if you are willing to work hard you can earn 6 figures a year.

    Cons

    Work availability does go up and down during the year but over a full year it works out. Need to be smart and put some away during the summer months. IBEW union has got in and will ruin everything.

    I have been working at Ledcor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Sense of culture and spirit within teams is average. Free lunch and pizza with projects. Long weekends, time off and vacations are good.

    Cons

    Outside of individual teams, relationships are defined by ego centric leadership vested in personal gain. The share plan is unreachable for most people. There are lots of poor behaviours between peers competing for top positions. Be careful about the performance management process - it's more about opinion shopping than true job and performance evaluation. Salary increases are subjective and not based on merit. Pay...
