Truck Operator (Former Employee), Edmonton, AB – April 8, 2013
Pros: overtime, benefits, local work
Cons: management, no life, long hour's
CEDA is a good company to work for, great benefits @ 100%. They do pay less than everyone else in this field but they have created a performance plan that does give you up to a 3% raise every year, but – more... has only just started this. Upper management hasn't a clue what actually is going on in the field and is extremely strict to the rules. If they want you fired, they will undoubtedly find any reason to fire you. They will tell you reporting incidents no matter how big or small wont get you fired, but it will get you fired. Site supervisors and workers in the field are great, they will help you if you need help. Supervisors will ask you to break policies and procedures, DO NOT DO THIS no matter what. – less
SUPERVISOR (Current Employee), Fort McMurray – December 27, 2014
Very good company to work for. It offers a lot of growth when you demonstrate good work ethic. It is a challenging job. Constantly problem solving and making decisions very fast. You learn how to manage and deal with high stress environments. You learn how to work alone, safely and efficiently. Everyone is extremely friendly and willing to help you if you have any questions.
Best group of field workers I've ever worked with. But sadly the management sucks
Everyday Worker (Former Employee), Fort McMurray – September 9, 2014
Pros: great field employees to work with
Cons: lying managers
The actual workers at Ceda are great guys/gals. Labours and Operators along with the Formens. Unfortunately that's where it stops. The management is horrible, be it at the work place or corp. They don't listen the the employees. The manage will tell you 1 thing. But do another. This company could be great to work for. If they cleaned out the upper manage and put the proper people in place.

Branch Administrator (Current Employee), Conklin, AB – August 19, 2014
Pros: always glad to come to work :)
Cons: can be stressful at times
A normal day start anywhere between 6-7 am till 5 pm. I work with a pressue and vac company. Pricing lems, scanning faxing calling people emailing people, Entering in payrol, ordering PPE or parts for – more... michanics, tracking of trucks, revenue\ introdivision. The hardest part of my job would be having to chance down lems that arnt signed or need PO numbers on them. Most enjoyable part is learning somthing new every day. The people i do work with are good people and love to laugh adn joke around. – less
operator (Current Employee), edmonton – August 18, 2013
Pros: one or two good supervisors at efs.
Cons: lip service, nothing more.
management has no clue, especially in the dredging and dewatering division. Have lost tons of potential work due to ops manager and project manager being clueless. A couple of the EFS supervisors are great, – more... make it enjoyable to work there. Co-workers all get along well. Operations manager has no back bone, can screw up without retribution. Could be a great place to work if they got rid of the two people who are holding this division back. – less
Great experience working at refineries and power plants across the prairies.
Laborer/Operator (Former Employee), Regina, SK – October 24, 2012
Pros: great experience, is the reason why i became interested in power engineering.
Cons: dirty work environment, low paying, can be quite labor intensive.
The thing I enjoyed about working with CEDA was that you never knew what you would be doing from day to day. One day I would be cleaning out a tank and the next day hydro-excavating. It was interesting – more... to see how a refinery operates and was lucky to be in parts of the refinery not many people go. During shutdowns I was responsible for cleaning all four 180' reactors on the day crew because I wasn't afraid of heights and many others were not keen on doing that job. – less
