Process Operator (Former Employee), Fort Saskatchewan, ABNovember 28, 2015
Work days seemed to go by quickly as we were busy in the Utilities department and granulation/ammonia plants. People were fantastic to work with and had a great working relationship with management. Natural gas prices led the plant to do serious cutbacks at the time. Would work for them again.

Lots of responsibility rewarded with good pay, bonus and benefits
Project Specialist (Former Employee), Redwater, ABNovember 15, 2015
Pros: staff had sense of strong community and pulled together when things needed to get done.
Cons: Unplanned outages and turnarounds required 12 hour days 6 days a week for long periods.
Enjoyed managing Materials Management group but found it difficult to supervise 22 people in 2 diverse areas namely Purchasing and warehousing. There were no supervisor or lead hand in either group. All 22 were direct reports. Age of the plant required annual turnarounds lasting upwards of 45 days usually during the summer which made it difficult to plan summer vacation for staff.

Supervisor of group reported directly to site management and indirectly to Corporate Materials Management in Calgary. Often there were conflicts in priorities and measures.

Company has strong safety program, benefits and social programs such as United Way.

Office Manager (Former Employee), Granum, AlbertaOctober 16, 2015
Pros: Wages
Cons: Long Spring Hours
I loved going to work at Agrium. Our plant was located in the small hamlet of Granum. It was very busy, and I enjoyed all of the farmers and truck divers that I got to deal with on a daily basis. I had a lot of responsibilities at the plant, as the office manager, environment coordinator, as well as the weighing in and out of all trucks. It was an amazing place to work.

Mechanical Engineer Intern (Former Employee), Carseland, AlbertaNovember 24, 2014
I enjoyed my time here, great people, good safe work environment, and really good experience. The new CEO seems a little self centered and is only thinking about making money this second and not thinking long term but otherwise great company.

Company pays well, good benifits, but I never know when i will get to go home at the end of the day. We are asked almost every day if we can stay late

Looking for a cleaner work place, and a place with more leadership.
More structure to hours of work, not fly by the seat of our pants mentality on a day to day basis.

Surface Surveyor (Former Employee), Kapuskasing, ONFebruary 3, 2013
Pros: there were free lunches and team building events.
Cons: long hours but living out of town.
I worked as a surface pit surveyor taking topos of the pit and plotting it with a GPS and data collector. I picketed dig limits, blast holes, grade, toes and crests. I learned how to use the software Surpac. Management was well organised and wasn't afraid to speak to anyone. My co-workers were great to work with and wish that I was still working with them. The hardest part of the job was that I lived 45 minutes away from Kapuskasing plus a 1 hour bus ride away to the mine. I worked 12 hours days but it really came up to about 15 hours by the time I would get back home. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact that Agrium worked very hard on team building and I got to meet new people that worked for the mine.
