Fuel Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Stony Plain, AB – 26 September 2017
Most days we worked 10 to 14 plus hours a day, and we had no management supports. When a driver made mistakes, the management would focus on the mistakes made, instead of focusing on what they could do to avoid said mistakes in the future and giving you additional training to ensure that said mistakes/incidents didn't happen repeatedly. I did learn how to drive an 18 speed body job truck with this company, I also learned how to load fuel and how to make the fuel delivers. I found that there was very little or no contact with management in person. They did not ensure that we were not fatigued while putting in longer hours.. The hardest part of this job were the longer hours, and the management complaining about the hours. The dispatch would load your day up and the management would complain when it was physically impossible to complete the said day.. The most enjoyable thing about the job was the co workers, dealing with the different types of customers. and the driving.
decent pension package
Longer hours with out support, the trucks, negative feed back constantly.

Winter months are the hardest, very slow. Makes for long days. This is a good time to take any training offered and catch up on other things that may of been put aside during the busy spring and summer.
Forklift Driver (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 27 May 2017
The pay is mediocre, the work is easy but the management culture is extreme micromanagement. You are watched like a hawk and constantly scrutinized. Low level management that handcuffs and stifles any creative ideas . Many many processes to complete minor tasks. Co-workers are good but they are afraid to apply themselves or learn new tasks for fear of being heavily scrutinized by the current Micromanager. Sad situation but could be much better if employees had some level freedom to do their work and learn without the constant negative presence of the micromanager.

Yard Worker (Former Employee) – Ponoka, AB – 11 March 2015
incredibly busy job, but if you can get past having no life outside of work for a few weeks until it slows down its great! lots of overtime hours, turning into awesome pay cheques! worked with awesome people, really enjoyed not just working with coworkers but also customers. Only down side is that it is mostly a spring seasonal job, and had to find something else for the rest of the summer. never know when your last day could be, so the unpredictability of it was not so great, but all in all I wish I could go back to it!
