Frequently asked questions

For Employers

There is no charge to get registered with Ultimate Tradesmen. When you use one of our skilled craftsmen, you will simply be billed the hourly rate times the number of hours worked, allowing you to pay for productive hours only.  Our rates are fully inclusive WCB, and all taxes and burdens.

We have full time trade recruiters that have no less than 5 years of construction experience who use traditional advertising, networking and referral programs.

We have developed a rigorous screening process that includes in house testing, at least six trade references and an interview that is designed to weed out the less qualified and allow us to identify and hire the best!

Simply call your Ultimate Tradesmen Representative or the office with a detailed description of what you are looking for and our Trade Recruiter will select the proper and most qualified candidate for you. You will then be advised of the person’s qualifications and bill rate.

Planning is the key to productivity and to getting the right craftsmen. Your Ultimate Tradesmen Representative will work with you to help plan out your labour needs. A few days’ notice is best to get the right person to your projects, however, if you have a crisis management situation, give us a call and we will do everything possible to make it work for you!

Once our craftsmen are hired, we constantly look to you, our partners, to evaluate and rate our employees. We keep only those that make the high standards we set for our craftsmen and are constantly replacing the bottom 10% who simply don’t make the grade. Plus, our employees and the entire staff at Ultimate Tradesmen know that we are a labour provider and our work speaks for itself. So our merit based philosophy entices our employees to do better so they can make more money.

Ultimate Tradesmen guarantees the worker sent to your jobsite will be of the quality you expect and will have the knowledge you requested. If in the first 2 hours, you do not feel this is the case, simply contact us and you will not be billed for any time for that individual. Ultimate Tradesmen will replace that worker as soon as possible.

For Job Seekers

We offer competitive wages,  dependent on experience and certifications.

Ultimate Tradesmen works with hundreds of local and National Contractors to supply them with the Skilled Craftsmen they need to get their projects done.  Our needs are changing by the hour.  Generally, we have more work than workers. Our goal is to make sure you have steady full-time work.
So, the first step is to come in, interview, test and get registered with Ultimate Tradesmen.  This way, we are both prepared should we have a job to send you to tomorrow.

Yes you do.  If you need to purchase boots, hard hats, vests, gloves or glasses we have them available here at our offices.

You are expected to have your own form of reliable transportation.

Yes we do! We are associated with Mercon benefits.  For detailed information click here.
