    I worked at Thompson Brothers Construction full-time

    Pros

    It was REAL easy to get hired. Sent my resume in and got a call that night from a recruiter! That should've been my first clue....

    Cons

    Supposedly we signed a form saying they don't have to pay us OT when we work stat holidays. But it's probably for our own good, you know what they say, mo money mo problems. Thompson is just looking out for your well being. Which is why you have to pay $35/day to stay in their ghetto camp.

    Advice to Management

    I think there should be 3 safety meetings per week, maybe bring in pizza and ice cream cake. Oh, and a hot safety chick would be nice too.

    I worked at Thompson Brothers Construction full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay was really good compared to any work back where I am from. There are a lot of good formans to work for at that company. They work year round and it's not seasonal like some places

    Cons

    The few bad formans they do have working there are a nightmare to work for. Compared to some companies in Fort mcmurray the pay was low.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees that work there for over a year a pay raise. The formans that have a lot of complaints against them for the way they treat their crews should be fired instead of shipped off to another site with the same company
