Process and Sulphur Technician (Former Employee) – Fort McKay, AB – May 6, 2016
Wasn't a bad place to work, wage was good and personally I liked the camps. What sucked was how management treated people, and you were truly just a number. With better, smarter and more caring management this really would of been a good place to work. Even on my exit interview I don't really even think they cared; but then again no one even showed up for my hiring interview. go figure. I do believe this was just the local management; as I have a better feeling about the Calgary management
none. what they wrote down is exactly what you got.

Accounts Payable Clerk/Reception (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, AB – March 9, 2016
When I started working for them it was okay. After about a year their true colours showed. Especially when oil dropped and they started dropping people left right and center but the big boys never took a wage cut. Greedy, Greedy, big company.
Student, Information Systems - Systems Operations (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – February 18, 2016
The team is efficient and lean; client issues are resolved in a timely manner and structured approach with minimal downtime. The environment is fun to work in, relaxed, and open. Collaboration among co-workers is awesome. The most enjoyable part of my job is the commendation I receive from my supervisor after a job well done as well as the constructive advice given to assigned complete work.
Can be a good place to work but totally depends on the team/manager.
PROGRAMMER/ANALYST (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – January 21, 2016
Unfortunately the current culture in IT does not value experience. The younger and cheaper you are the more attractive you are.
The managers in software development have no formal IT background so rely solely on process to manage. You need to be a process drone to excel in the IT software development group of this company. My definition of a process drone is someone who works to the metrics of process without regard to the possibly detrimental consequences to the goals those processes and metrics were originally intended to achieve. In this team you will NEVER be faulted if you follow the process. If you can turn off your brain and follow process you will excel here.
Things are much more results oriented in the field. There it tends to be more results oriented. Get it done as quickly, safely and efficiently (low cost) as possible and work any process later. More agile to use the jargon.
stock options can be good
No pention. Stupidly long hours if you are on the management track.
