Manager, Health, Safety & Environment (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABSeptember 15, 2013
Pros: safety team
Cons: long hours
Having several locations in the city it was important to stay close to them all, and maintain good relations with the employees and management to ensure compliance, communications and actions.

The most gratifying is being with a company that you can see as time goes, the safety culture shift, with people being the driving force to zero harm.

Welder (Former Employee), Tacoma, WAAugust 24, 2014
Pros: holidays, vacation days, summer picnics, and christmas party
I gave Bradken 9 years of my life. They treated me good. They focused on safety and quality. They were very competitive with wages, benefits and giving employee's a chance to move up and better themselves. Unfortunately, they had to reduce their work staff due to the lack of work. I happened to fall into that unlucky category.
