Steamfitter/Pipefitter (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 October 2016
I found this job very rewarding with a very respectful group of professionals to work with. safety is very important with this company and will spend a good part of the pre job meeting in the morning addressing safety concerns and discussing how to work safe on the job. Safety is drilled into your head, so that when you go on site, you can identify hazards before you are injured. Plain and simple. I found a lot of camaraderie between workers on site and off. Although my time on job was cut short because of a personal issue, I would work for them again in a second.
Foreman (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, AB – 8 October 2016
I have a hard time believing how poorly Aecom in this area is managed! The job co-ordinators play favorites and that is how the work is divided up . If you don't suck up and do everything they ask you end up sitting with no work. This area needs some type of HR or upper management to come and check out this circus ! The pay is rock bottom and you always end up working and not getting paid for all hrs worked. Conflict of interest is huge!
Ironworker (Former Employee) – Joffre, AB – 15 September 2016
Was at Joffre Ab, great group of co-workers. As for management, very poorly managed, would not recommend this company to.anyone as you will pull your hair out! Been in construction the last 10 years and the worst management team I have worked for and they know how to blow budgets because of it.
Pipefitter Lead Hand (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 September 2016
AECOM has been in an up and down slide as every other company in oil and gas has. It has its benefits, my career path started with Flint and they are now Aecom. the guidance was not there but they got you started. downside there are some behind door agreements that are made and its not fair for everyone else. i feel if you earn and get the education for your trade or job you should be paid accordingly. people who don't take the plunge and upgrade there positions should not be paid more than a qualified individual.
Truck drover (Former Employee) – Lampman, SK – 23 August 2016
Will be asked to do things against the safety policy. I have worked alone in places where it was unsafe management does not care. Their environmental attitude is horrible.basically the management was horrible
Tools & Small Equipment Coordinator (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, AB – 18 August 2016
Was a good company to work for, however I worked for Carson Energy as they were aquired by AECOM, the infant stages of the merger/takeover was very painful, I was hired to help improve their processes, my lack of experience, combined with low oil prices, i was unfortunately laid off.
Apprentice Electrician (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 July 2016
They Gave me the opportunity to try new things and responsibility to do things on my own which allowed me to learn a lot more than at previous jobs. The supervision was also excellent, it is a well managed company.
Consultant (Current Employee) – Toronto – 22 June 2016
Over staffed and over managed. Focus is on producing work with the minimum of effort and maximum profit for the company. Junior staff are not trained properly nor given a chance to learn and make mistakes. Management would rather hire from outside than give existing staff the chance to move up, then they wonder why staff turnover rate is so high.Key business focus changes all the time leaving staff in a permanent state of fear that their area of expertise will be chopped next.
Lead Hand-Material Technician/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB / Fort McMurray – 10 May 2016
Worked here for 6.5 years and moved to various project locations. Enabled me to apprentice for my Journeyman Material Technician. Good life work balance Co- workers were great have made some life long friends. Hardest part of the job was it ending and leaving the people who have become a second family.
Great place to work but times are slow when oil is low
Welder (Current Employee) – Rainbow Lake, AB – 30 April 2016
Culture and co-workers are good. Management in some areas could use some work. Hardest part of the job is being away from our families. I've good a trade and lots of great possessions thanks to them so I would say it's been good.
