Forced to chase irrelevant metrics instead of being productive.
Field Service Supervisor - Power Generation (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 11 April 2013
The people I worked with were, for the most part, pretty good. Like any workplace there was the usual politics & backstabbing but overall not too bad. Our so called manager never did anything to promote team spirit and actively sought to drive wedges between departments. His lack of leadership & even competence was on display every day. Every month we were forced to audit some failed metric from the previous month with little or no explanation as to it's relevance. Any criticism or questioning of the metric is met with indignation; "How dare you question the Great Oz!" was the perception. I got the impression that nobody really knew what the answers were but didn't want to admit it.
All in all, a pretty disappointing experience after great hype.
got to leave early to read with my son's class weekly
poor leadership, average wages but 24/7 availability expectation.
Administrative Clerk (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 6 January 2017
Double standards, favoritism, very little respect. This place is a pay check and nothing more. New positions are given on favoritism and not skills, experience or tenure. Company has taken away bonuses, or now give very little. No resepect is given, every speaks to one another poorly. No management in office. people come and go as they please, but then others are held accountable for being on time getting work done etc
Mechanic (Current Employee) – Clairmont, AB – 5 January 2017
The work is ideal no busting your back with heavy lifting. They like to put people in supervisory rolls that have No business being there. Try taking mechanical supervision from a supervisor that sold insurance never puled wrenches

you must have ability work on your own and work very long hour that what I learn. management is and good communication but pressure is always day and most enjoyable part is work each other mean hand to hand.
Customer Assistance Centre Agent (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 2 September 2016
The culture at the Customer Assistance Centre was cut throat and if you weren't one of the favourites of the manager you were garbage. There was gossip, backstabbing, and public humiliation there on a daily basis. The only good part of the experience was the benefit package.
Very terrible office to work in. Huge favortism and very sloppy managers. Lots of turn over in this job as its a call center. You have to reach 50 calls every day and are hassled everyday on call quality. I dont recommend this job to anyone
Industrial Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 29 February 2016
A Fortune 500 company with exciting work environment with fair opportunities for professional growth. The company also provides continuous job & safety related training. Management was fair most of the times. People were cooperative for the most part.
