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.
Apprentice Welder (Former Employee) – Bonnyville, AB – 28 April 2016
When AECOM took over Flint URS there got to be too many people thinking that they were in charge when they weren't. They started to fire everyone that had been there for a long time and began hiring people that were family members of the company and refusing others. They began hiring people that didn't know how to do their jobs.

Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Nisku, AB – 9 March 2016
The day would start off with a tailgate meeting with a weekly safety meeting every Wednesday. I learned on the job the different types of drill pipe. Management was a stickler for keeping records precise. My fellow co-workers we a great bunch of people to work with. The hardest part of the day was trying to find a location for incoming stock, there was such a lack of space in the yard. The best part of the day was when you got congratulated on a great job.

Enjoyed the Team I was with, all the guys were great. There was nothing wrong with management and they paid within the industry standard. It was a positive experience. To bad the price of oil is what it is.
Could walk to the office and we had our own bathrooms in camp.

This was an excellent opportunity to broaden my understand of pressure piping fabrication , and turnover document creation. The group is very tight knit, and are hard working. The most difficult part of this job was becoming part of the team.

3rd year apprentice, welder (Former Employee) – Cold Lake, AB – 19 January 2016
As long as it was a productive day at work and able to go home safe at the end of the shift, then it was a good day. Structural GF & the Pipefitter's GF were awesome guys to work for because they cared about the input of the people working underneath them. They knew that a happy crew was a safe & productive crew! Hardest part of the job, was watching people with families being laid off....On the account of management bidding aggressively on jobs!
Great people to work with
Management hasn't changed their way of thinking about employees or the business
Registered Electrician Apprentice (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 8 January 2016
At the time i was working for URS energy now AECOM. They kept me busy with challenging tasks that helped me along with my electrical apprenticeship. Management could use some help, if you weren't part of their inner circle, you suffered.
A well-managed company that values it's employees.
Site SCM Lead (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 January 2016
Typical on-site industrial construction in the oil and gas sector. Management was well represented and receptive. My co-workers were professional and respectful. The hardest part of the job was when there was no more work. (industry-wide economic downturn).
Management cares about it's people.
Other than factors beyond it's control (ie: industry slow-down)....none.
