Mill Operator/Supervisor (Former Employee) – McClean Lake, SK – 30 May 2017
I really enjoy working in the Mill, I am a good mill operator, enjoy hands on work and I am very observant. I like the management aspect of working for Areva, each employee is given a fair chance to enhance their skills and ability at the workplace.
Clean environment to live at and respect is given to all employees
Adjustments needed to make, before staying at work for the shift rotations.

Great company that values their employees. This company is health and safety conscious. Focus on up to date training for all employees. Ensures that company/employees are up to date with all Safety certificates and documentation. Encourages employees to improve and advance.

Chemistry (Former Employee) – Canada – 8 November 2016
Management shows way to much favoritism. No chance for advancement. Friends move up the ladder not qualified hard workers. Camp life and fellow coworkers are great. The company itself is good. They need to take a look who is in the leadership roles.
Mineral Resource Geoscientist (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 31 May 2016
Management comes from France and it is expatriate for 4 years. AREVA is a state owned company. The company is in the process of radical restructuring. You can get a good salary and health benefits, insurance, company matching RRSP contribution, other small incentives. A good company to start with and to get work experience, but you will need to move if you want to advance your career.
