Foreman/Journeyman Insulator (Former Employee) – Redwater, AB – 22 February 2017
The days started earlier than usual, as the site required employees to take shuttle buses into the unit. However, the company was very forgiving when employees were late for toolbox talks. The company did not give safety awards or incentives, which was expected; they did provide opportunities to advance and gain new knowledge. The most difficult part of the job was the expectations placed on workers to perform the work which would usually be delegated to supervision. The most enjoyable part was emphasis on working as a team.
Awesome company to work for, the pay is great and lots of perks..:)

Awesome atmosphere to work in, safety is their number one priority. They have a wonderful open office concept. I learnt safety is very important and number one thing to aim for everyday. Management is great to work for very kind and friendly. Co-Workers very easy to deal with. Nice place overall to work..
Fluid Transfer Truck Driver (Former Employee) – brooks ab – 24 August 2016
when they buy a company, they should get rid of the previous managers. the guy who was in charge of the fluid haul should not be in management. when i got hurt due to his not supplying sand for the ice in employees parking, he fought WCB and i lost almost every thing.so my views are a little bias.

Piping Superintendent (Former Employee) – Atikokan, ON. Canada – 12 September 2015
A typical day would start with an all Supervisor/Contractor daily scheduling meeting. I would then have an informal meeting with my project foremen, discussing scheduled work, progress and safety issues. I would then attend the foreman/worker job task review for the upcoming day. I learned once again that you take nothing for granted, and that all people including Supervisors must fully understand the tasks and how vital schedules effect all aspects of the project. Upper Management was excellent to work with as they left you to manage your aspect of the project yourself. Being a Union job co-workers were normally good but I found myself constantly having to bring up work productivity, smoke breaks and extended coffee breaks. The most enjoyable part of all projects I've supervised is the ability to plan schedule and implement projects. I enjoy being able to be out in the field observing productivity to be able to plan the next day/weeks upcoming tasks. For myself being too busy was by far better than having little to do.
Open work atmosphere
Being one of the few Holders for work protection there were extended work weeks

Turnover Coordinator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 20 August 2015
no potential for growth. lowest possible rates offered for positions. good working environment. Not so politically correct, but that's some what expected in all construction companies. Management is your best friend until stress levels are high than everyone seems to loose control. lack of experience maybe? overall good experience
