Despite the high expectations that we place on the payroll position, we are an electrical company, and thus, our culture is relatively laid back. The right fit for this role is easy-going with a great sense of humour. Our team is largely made up of tradespeople, and as a result, our office language is less “traditional” than the typical workplace.
