this is the time of my career when I learned about being a process operator and the value of safety which has served me well all my career
Process Operator (Former Employee), Fort Saskatchewan, ABOctober 30, 2014
Pros: i could go home every night as this part of my career was when my kids were still very young
Cons: i worked shift work and weekends and i missed much of the kids growing up
I learned much as a process operator at Agrium as this was my first job as a process operator. I was introduced to vessels of all types and pumps and high horsepower centrifigal steam driven compressors which would help me much in the hydrogen units and compressors at syncrude and albian sands. I also used what I learned in the urea plant to commission 2 fertilizer units in Egypt for 1 year. I worked on a great team at Agrium and they all, and management were very helpful when I had questions about the process and in the initial learning stage of the various posts. I would say that the hardest part of the job was the learning as there was much information to memorize but with the manuals and people that couched me I actually enjoyed it.

ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee), Redwater, ABMay 27, 2014
We would start the day with having a safety meeting. Work orders were handed out and off we would go. Being an administrative assistant is always fast paced and hectic at times. But I loved that. I enjoyed being able to provide support to the Management team and my co-workers. Most enjoyable part of the job was helping to ensure all my co-workers went home safely.

operator (Former Employee), Redwater, ABFebruary 28, 2013
Pros: great co-workers. good pay and benefits.
Cons: management and h&r are for the company not the workers.
Agrium preaches preemptive maintenance but we were always fighting to get things fixed, very unsafe practices that way. Plus every year I was there(5 years), they put more accountability on the operators while making little change to improve equipment. The plants were old and run down but management would make operators sign WHAT cards and procedures, holding us responsible for any incident while taking no responsibility or having any accountability themselves. Some supervisors are old school and would yell and swear at you and even name call. Honesty was a huge problem throughout the company. Your told from the begining , go to H&R, your days are numbered. H&R is for the company not the worker.
