Loved by lads, trusted by clients

I've been with AFGL for two years, and it's been a rewarding experience. The company's commitment to safety, efficiency, and teamwork has created a positive work environment. From day one, I felt supported and appreciated by both colleagues and management. The variety of projects keeps the job interesting, and there's a strong sense of camaraderie among the team. AFGL's emphasis on professional development and fair compensation makes it a great place to build a career in the construction industry

I’ve been working for A Few Good Lads since I arrived in Vancouver 3 years ago, really good place to learn about construction and get Canadian experience related to the job. Also a good place to meet a lot of people from all over the world. They always give me shifts on really good and interesting projects around Vancouver giving me the opportunity to learn a lot about the industry and up skilling in the process

Consuelo Romero, Employee

I had a stellar experience with A Few Good Lads. They have your best interests in consideration when placing you on sites around Vancouver. I found them to be extremely helpful, supportive and responsive to me which I appreciated. Couldn’t recommend working here enough, especially if you are new to the city or the industry as the people there do their best to look after you

Conor Stewart, Employee

I have worked for A Few Good Lads for over a year now and couldn’t recommend them more! Over the last year I’ve made tons of friends, learned loads about construction and gotten to play a big role working on a lot of really cool projects, all over BC. They have always looked after me really well and days off for travels or sick days have never been a problem. Great company to work for!

Robert Haines, Employee

I have been working for A few Good Lads for 3 months and I didn´t have much to complain about. It is perfect when you are new to the city or the construction industry. If you are willing and hard-working there is also a quick path to a better paid position. They are always trying to fulfill your requests
