MATERIALS TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, AB – 6 March 2016
A typical day at work is doing laboratory testing of aggregates.Preparing test results and reporting to clients. I learned to deal with different personalities especially during site visits. My co workers are awesome to work with because we have a good working relationship .The hardest part of the job is driving in a remote site and long hours of work. The most enjoyable part of the job is of course is when you see your paycheck

Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 21 January 2016
Project based disadvantage Is no security of work. My current office offers lots of learning opportunities. If they can change their business model and have more sustaining project and maintenance & operation definitely a good company
This company has lost it's way. It's fall from potential greatness has come as a result of it's inward focus in recent years. I wish then the best, but as long as the focus remains on inward controls rather than clients AmecFW will not be a pleasant place to attempt to build a career.
lack of vision and intentionally poor communication
Junior Document Controller (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 18 November 2015
Typical day at work is good. There aren't a lot of surprises. Sometimes there is some variance in print requisitions or perhaps a discrepancy is found on a courier invoice when reconciling it that may require some investigation to fix the problem. Sometimes senior document controllers may have new information to share and tasks to learn. I learned something new everyday that helped me in my work and helped me to help others as well. It is a corporate company that deals with a lot of confidential information, so there is a lot of training involved for anti-corruption and business conduct. It is also very safety oriented. There is an HSSE department at each office around the world and at every mine site. Safety is #1. I enjoyed working with wonderfully professional colleagues each day. Getting to know them was a pleasure. The most difficult part of working for a company like this was watching the mining industry fluctuate and change to where hundreds of engineers and people in the company have been layed off from the positions. When the projects run out, so does the work. If the mining industry falls flat, so does the income of project work.
