We’re a company that works through not just finding jobs but building careers. Whether it be local, whether it be other markets, other areas in the industry. We’re always trying to find an opportunity for people to come here and spend their career with us.

The ability to have the same job for 27 years seems to be a rarity in today’s world. So WesTower’s not only allowed for that, but actually allowed me to pursue a career that just gets better and better every year.

I looked at it as a huge opportunity. If you’re in for a challenge, you’re in for growth, you’re in for sustainability. And this market is really good right now for anybody that wants to build a career. This is the reason I came in, because I saw a long-term career here for myself.

What has surprised me about working at WesTower is that I’ve been able to lay the groundwork starting from a shop guy to where I am now in the engineering department. I’ve been able to experience different departments, get different skill sets, which has been a huge advantage for me with my current role in engineering.

Coming to WesTower as the largest contractor in Canada, we’re a turnkey service company so there’s so many different avenues you can fit in. With wireless construction, with engineering, with drafting, with fabrication, wireline construction so doing all the underground work, there’s so many different areas you can step your foot into whether you like it or not, we can move you around to suit, but it’s not just one position for you, there’s multiple different ways.

You get to try different skill sets, you get to travel around the country, see different landscapes.

Telecom industry has taken me to almost every province in Canada to see this great country actually, which has been fun. And it has taken me overseas to different areas such as Africa, China, and Russia.

While outside of the development and the opportunity to work amongst the divisions, we want to make sure the employees are taken care of. So we involve things like RSP matching, with our parent corporation we have a stock purchase plan, things that will help develop nest eggs, develop financial security for employees of us to spend time with us.

With the systems that we have in place for our share options and our retirement program, so if you spend enough years here you can retire easily.

Why WesTower? It’s the family mentality, the flexibility it offers, and being a part of a company that is a leader in its industry is a great advantage.

The crew that I work with is what keeps me coming back every day. It’s a really difficult, demanding job that I enjoy, but the people that I get to hang out with for 10 or 12 hours every day is really what makes it worthwhile or what makes it enjoyable.

They always have their employees’ backs, be it financially or if you need time to be with your family.

Why WesTower? Because it offers a lot of opportunity to their personnel, especially in safety, and they offer a lot of opportunities to their workers to improve their skills, and also it’s fun!

I’m with West Tower and still am because of the friendships I’ve made, it’s a good career, I’ve worked with a lot of great co-workers, and I’ve met a lot of amazing people over my career.

I’ve been in the industry for all my life. I grew up in the Telecom and was thought as a big company forever. And my wish was to one day I’ll work there. That’s it. It’s just I won’t go anywhere else basically, I tried other competitors so there’s no way I’d change.

You know from my perspective, coming to a company that we can do really amazing things with, being part of something where you’re connecting families, and communities, and loved ones, and businesses, you really feel like you’re developing something and building a product and a service that changes the way people operate, and looks towards the future.
