no clue
operator (Current Employee), edmontonAugust 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, 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 – more... a great place to work if they got rid of the two people who are holding this division back. – less

Truck Operator (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABApril 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 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 – more... 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

Great experience working at refineries and power plants across the prairies.
Laborer/Operator (Former Employee), Regina, SKOctober 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 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 – more... 180' reactors on the day crew because I wasn't afraid of heights and many others were not keen on doing that job. – less

Sucks the life from you.
Senior operator (Former Employee), Grande prairie, Calgary, Red deer, Fort Mcmurray.October 10, 2012
Pros: when i quit
Cons: everything.
Just keep your eyes and ears open. You will find out over time.
You will be promised the world and be able to get away with things for a while and even given a few perks to keep you there. Don't trust anyone all backstabbers.
High turnover rate for a reason.
It's an ok place to start if you don't have any skills and still need to make some money, but – more... don't let your guard down - unless your family / close friends in cohoots you will just be a number. – less

Vince1 – March 9, 2013

Agreed! I worked there back in 04-05. Bunch of corrupt people running the place. I suffered a slight eye injury on the job and my supervisor reamed me out for more than 4 hours becasue I went to the medical room in the plant we were working at. The following week another guy got caught smoking on the plant site and got a slap on the hand. They pick favourites and if you;re not one of them you'll ge the dirty jobs. Low pay was my experience too. Seems they picked and chose who they wanted to pay well. Young fellow hired a month after me was getting paid better than me and got more jobs. Manager was corrupt and current manager is no better. stay away if you can!!!!!

Hard to Manage from my stand point
Project Manager (Former Employee), Houston, TXJune 12, 2012
It was a great start for me to venture on my own. I enjoyed by being employed by the company.I over saw day to day operations. The hardest part about about the job was seperating friends and business. The bad part about my position was trying to make Upper Manager to under stand that it was not a over night success after I had made over $ 250,000.00 – more... dollars less than six months for the company and was promise a raise in 90 days. – less
