Hi

Has anyone heard off a construction company called Flynn in Canada, Husband has a interview with them in 2 weeks time, in the roofing part. Any general info would be great.
Or if anyone has gone over with them from Ireland/UK to work in Canada. They are taking workers from Ireland & uk to Canada to work & seems to be giving them alot of perks like paying there flight, digs etc and then offereing a live to work after the 3 months off being there?

Thanks

Regina

Hi Regina,
Sorry I dont know anything about them, but i was wondering do you or your hubby know of any other companies hiring irish construction workers, my husband is a site foreman/manager. He is really interested in getting work in Canada and any help or tips would be much appreciated.

Thanks:)

Hi

I only know that my Husband got the Advert from a mate who had The Star Newspaper and the add was in that. They are holding interviews in Dublin 2 weeks time in the Hilton Hotel, he said that they dont just look for roofers, but all kinds in the contstruction industry.
My Husband just sent a email to Flynn and they replied to him. So it might be worth a try to send his CV off to them, their Website is Flynn
If I hear off anything else, when he goes for the interview, I will let you know.

Hey there, I am currently working on a development that Flynn has the roofing contract for and I can tell you that are a legit union company with divison all over Ontario and the rest of Canada. They also have a sheet metal wing too. Far as I can see they pay well, benefits etc, your husband might want to brush up his portugese...lol as most crews are portugese immigrants in Ontario at least


hope that helped

Could I ask, did they fly your husband/s out for interviews ?

Could imagine mine getting himself completely ruddy lost if he had to fly out ... think 'home alone 2' !!! So best I apply for our baby son's passport so that we could all fly out and make a holiday of it at the same time if he has to go for interview.

Hi there,

No his interview is tomorrow at 1pm, but the email that was sent to him said it was today, so we travelled 2 hours up to Dublin to the Hotel they are holding the interviews in to find out that they are not there till tomorrow, so back home we went and off we will go again tomorrow! :) so will see what happens. How long does your husband has to wait to find out if he gets the job?
Did he find the interview good? My husband is meeting a lady called Beverly Taylor.
We have done alot of research in edmonton at it looks really good!

lol they better exist since my hubby met them yesterday lol. Are they a solid reputable company?? do they have a good name in canada??
lol - They are big in construction but I don't know their financials -with that said they buy tons of Telco stuff from us which typically means they are in = Growth mode!!! Not to mention Toronto is BOOOMING with almost 20 some odd tall building in the heart of Downtown..

Good Luck
