Design Lead, Qual/Electrical Tech, Entry Level (Former Employee) – Lloydminster AB / Drumheller, AB – 10 September 2012
Typical day at work involved checking task lists to ensure design due dates were on schedule and modifying dates if other team members were falling behind or ahead of schedule. Shuffling dates were quite typical and meeting schedules were priority.
I learned to work with diverse personalities, how to manage my time and use to effectively the tools available to me.
Management and other staff members were always helpful and encouraging to help me reach my goals.
The hardest part of my job was learning to react to constant changing environment (customer needs) and protocal (ATCO Electric process).
Learning the distribution side of electrical was the most enjoyable part of the job and reaching the qualified position was very rewarding.
Powerline Surveyor Team Lead (Former Employee) – Northern Alberta – 16 January 2018
overall good work experience, majority of coworkers easy to get along with. Upper management is dysfunctional and out of touch, very elitist. HR does not like to talk in person but will answer emails. Average benefits, but does have a good share purchase policy and RRSP contributions
