Toxic environment
Site (Former Employee) –  Alberta27 July 2016
Save yourself from joining this company. Do not be deceived by their generous pay offer. Too many gossipers, jealous, micro-managing/control freaks and racist people that will pull you down. Missed pay is a norm and hard to chase. Management won't even care. Always a one-sided story to listen.
Pros
None
Cons
LOTS to mention

Good People to work with
Senior NDT Technician (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK24 April 2016
As with all industrial settings, safety is number one with Acuren. People are great to work with and easy to talk to. I have worked for them numerous times in the past as a contractor and will more than likely work for them again at some point in the future.
Pros
Varying Schedule
Cons
Veru Physical outdoor work

Staff was all great, hardworking people that felt like a family. Management was unorganized.
Warehouse (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray6 June 2014
Promised lots of hours and all the training I needed. The work was never ending. You were made to feel guilty if you took a day off. No work/Life balance at all. The training never materialized. The pay was low. Management turns a blind eye to plenty that goes on there. They preach and preach that they are a family, but, they don't follow through. Many workers were quitting because of promises that were made that were continuously broken. Was told my work week would be Mon-Fri 8am to 5pm. Ended up working 6am to 6pm, mostly 7 days a week. Was constantly reminded that the person who worked the position before me only took one day off a month. That person quit too.
Pros
Staff was awesome.
Cons
Management is unorganized. Company pay is quite low.

Great learning environment. Poor office staff and poor communication.
Journeyman B pressure/CWB welder (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB18 January 2016
Great guys to work with. Experienced crews to feed off and to help build your carreer if you are just starting off.

The lack of concern for missed pay for all trades people by payroll and managerial mistakes are a major concern within this company.

You cannot be afraid of heights if you want to work for this company. They are primarily an IRATA rope access company

Largest NDE employer in the area
NDE Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB3 October 2013
Mostly 10-12 hr days.
Became quite proficient with UT scanning techniques.
Management seemed often absent.
Coworkers were for the most part very diligent.
Hardest part of job was the extremely cold temperatures.
Enjoyed the ability to work on my own schedule being hired only for shutdowns and turnarounds.
Pros
Union provides good benefits and pension
Cons
no per diem

Not a good place to work, management did not care about your family life, they will use you and then let you go with no concerns for you, not recommended

Very low paying company in comparison to Industry
Safety Advisor (Former Employee) –  Alberta23 January 2013
Nice people, but very low paying job for safety adviors comparitive to industry standards. Safety environment was very challenging and with a workforce that is not full time it is difficult to implement changes as the field groups pratically run on their own and your either accepted or not. The lack of long term safety experience within the company was minimal making it very difficult for a individual seeking long term employment

My co-workers and supervisor were nice people and helped me with any questions I had related to our work. Safety was never an issue as we always had the right equipment for the job and everyone looked out for one another. Overall a good place to work.
