Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 November 2013
Internal advancement All jobs that could be filled by internal applicants are hired externally. Compensation is mid-level, some people get bonuses one year and not the next. It is not explained. Senior management is to detached to realize the damage the inexperienced middle management is doing until half the department is lost semi-annually due to turnover. Work assignments are segregated and bland. Co-workers are friendly, technology is out of date and the business does not support needed infrastructure. Do not recommend.
Decent benefits and wages
Awful middle management, low work life balance, no performance wage structure, ineffective technology
Salad/Sandwich maker (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 25 May 2017
A lot of staff got laid off when I worked there. The lodge I was at went union with CLAC which gave us an increase of pay but ended up laying off a lot of staff short noticed. fluctuation of client numbers went from 400 to 900 weekly and stayed at a medium on the weekend. Great pay and some great chefs and cooks with high standards and skills worked there but the rest of the staff were inexperienced and struggled to work with the minimal skills they had. Best paying camp job Ive worked at. I would work there again.
PMO Manager / Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 April 2017
ATCO companies are stable and a very nice place to work. The environment is great and management is really focusing in developing people to perform the maximum they can for the company. Very good Salary and comprehensive benefits.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 March 2017
ATCO Structures and Logistics is actually a decent company to work for. They offer a decent pay with great benefits with a typical 40 hour work week. Overtime is always optional if it is available. However, the company is heavily reliant on the oil and gas industry and in the current state of the Alberta economy, there is zero job security with ATCO Structures and Logistics.
Steady work when the economy supports the business

It is steady and repetitive work and you can challenge your abilities by taking on working in other "shops" in the plant. I found the opportunity rewarding as I am prone to create structures or processes to have my tasks be efficient and effective and this is encouraged at Atco. There is also the opportunity to share insights that may make a difference for the procedures in the entire plant.
I also found that the hours really fit with a family life as your day ended early enough to engage with the kids activities, and the weekends were available for other interests...
Supervision was very respectful and used encouragement over fault finding when reviewing production times and quality of work...
Over all a good place to work and great experience of caring and understanding.
Systematic can be learned and improved upon with ease.
General Laborer (Former Employee) – Spruce Grove, AB – 19 September 2016
Had your position on the line and worked hard to make sure you finished your job on time. The management and co-workers were awesome. Hardest part was when you fell behind in the line and people were waiting on you.
