Good benefits but too much stress and blaming employees
Account Manager/Sales Upstream Chemicals (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 April 2017
Recent changes in management and company direction have changed company from a great place to work to a stressful environment. They used to pride themselves on winning business the honest way and standing by their employees. It has now become a place where you hear of greasy sales tactics and employees are always worried it may be their last day. No trust or respect from management towards employees. Other districts may be better.

Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Redcliff, AB – 19 April 2015
I enjoyed working there. work was 12-14 hrs (included drive time). Learned a lot of equipment and Management was there when needed. Got along with 95% of the other co-workers, hardest part was rigging in 3" Iron in mud up to my knees. Some of the best times were the drives to different places, and during the summer and the Coil broke down, could relax and read a book or clean equipment at a nice pace. A shame that it is no more.
Interesting job with a lot of day to day chalanges

Feild Specialist 2 - INT (Former Employee) – Red Deer , Alberta , Canada – 9 February 2015
Strange for an Oil and Gas Specialty company who have roughly 90% of their employees hired with out any Oil and Gas experience. No wonder why they are failing in Canada. Not a surprise that they were in the " RED " financially. To the point where Haliburton purchased them. I'm glad I left.
