Project Buyer (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – August 1, 2013
A typical work day for me would include working with MRP to determine material requirements and then going out to the market place to source the required material. I also dealt with issues as in invoice payments for our suppliers. Also coordinating with the warehouse to make sure materials were received on time to meet the required delivery dates was – more... a key part of my job as well.
At Cameron I learnt the how to be a productive project buyer. My coworkers were great individuals. I felt as if we were a family. – less
assembler (Former Employee), Edmonton, Alberta – July 18, 2013
Pros: pay for educational advancements, no real push
Cons: misleading, unproffessional, lack of respect for employees, too many employees, poor leadership
In the initial interview management glorifies the company and how the company sees its employees. They have opportunities for educational advancements and will cover the cost if successful. As a new employee they make you feel small and training is very poor in the assembly area anyways. They hire way to many employees and you learn very fast your only – more... a number at this company. A lot of the time you would have 3 employees standing around you while you do your work, telling you other ways of doing it. Micro managed big time. Lack of communication from management to employees on the floor. Very unhappy work environment. Pay is poor as well... I don't feel they listen to there employees concerns or are concerned in rectifying them. False hopes with positions and poorly led. No integrity and lack of professionalism. Felt confused and misled right from the start. If your a motivated individual that has goals set high and are ready to work hard to get them..... I recommend you truly evaluate your decision before making it. At least in the Assembly department. Your kept at a very slow idle. – less

Project Manager (Former Employee), Calgary – January 4, 2013
Pros: a few nice people work there
Cons: too many to list
Management lacks direction and makes decisions without thinking of the consequences. This Calgary company is being managed out of Houston and and they do not understand the Canadian environment. Customers are often unhappy with the incompetence of some Cameron employees and it is embarrassing for the other Cameron professionals who pride themselves – more... in their work. If you are competent, they overwork you; while the incompetent sit idle. I doubt that they will get many jobs in the future. They undervalue good employees.
The best thing that I did at Cameron was to leave and get a new job. "If you value your career, you do not want the stink of Cameron on your resume". I was told this by more than one employee that left the company before I did. – less
Don't expect to work 8 hours a day.
Don't expect Bonus.
Don't expect a peace environment.
Don't expect good management team.
Don't expect good co-workers.
I learned how to give excuses to clients.

Rigger (Former Employee), Port Harcourt head office, and Onne sea port – February 18, 2014
Pros: easy staff transportation logistics.
Cons: health care was paramount.
there was a typical management employees relationship, where the workers union had the interest of the management and the workers at heart.

Estimator (Former Employee), New Iberia, LA – February 6, 2014
Pros: great co-workers & room for growth
Cons: poor management & training
A typical day at cameron new iberia was slow as work was not very constant so you found time working on side projects. I learned SAP skills, how to build a job from the ground up and cost it out for the bid process and I also learned to work on my own with not much guidance. No hard part to the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was when we got – more... work and we bid the job and decided on what areas we would build and could maintain at the facility. – less
