Well Pad Operator (Former Employee) – Conklin, AB – 31 October 2015
I loved my teammates/buddies/2nd family at Devon Energy!! This is the hardest part of losing my job. Not only was my job enjoyable and had great bosses and co-workers from operations, trades to all other contractors. I loved being there and it's tough getting laid off there after nearly 4.5 years.
IT Services Associate, - Service Desk (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 October 2015
I learned about Cisco Unity Communication Management tool and many other skills. There was never a typical day at work. Always something new or unique. My co-workers were great to be around and supportive. There was was no hardest or most enjoyable part of the job. It was always interesting and growing experience.
PROCUREMENT ADVISOR (Former Employee) – Conkin, AB – 15 September 2015
Devon Canada was a great company to work for. The shift work allowed for the perfect work/life balance. The individuals I worked with made going to work a breeze. There was always room to grow in roles and experience. Management gave me the responsibilities and freedom to complete my tasks.

education, career, support, balance, good environment
Contractor- Storm Welding Ltd (Former Employee) – Conklin, AB – 28 January 2015
worked long hours, chasing rigs. fabricating, welding structural and pressure. People seemed nice and fairly organized. Pay was good. Was hoping to continue working for them in the future. Hardest part was the amount of hours I worked.
Great place for a college student to learn about office work.
Work Experience (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 15 January 2015
A typical day at work always changed for me. I got to enter time sheet, enter inspection reports, and did lots of filling. I learned how a office environment was all about. I never really got to meet the company management, but the lady I worked under was very pleasant to work for. Co-workers were very pleasant and always willing to help me with anything I had questions about. I can't think of anything that would have been the hardest as I was only doing it as work experience. The most enjoyable part of the job was going out to the Devon Gas Plant and getting a tour then working for a few hours in the office.
Guys on the floor are good but management is very poor.
Maintenance (Former Employee) – Conklin, AB. Jackfish plants – 30 June 2014
Work was good, camp was good, pay was good but the management was terrible. The always made empty promises and never ever had your back. If you had an opinion you better keep it to yourself or be prepared to look for work. If you get on the wrong side of a boss they will just get rid of you even if you are a good worker and don't cause problems because you think for yourself. I worked there for 4 years and saw 4 people get let go with a cheque and no good reason to have left.
Communications and Design Advisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 21 February 2014
I worked at Devon for seven years, and at my performance review at the end of each, I asked for more challenge and responsibility. Not once was my request addressed - so I maintained a flat trajectory for the duration of my work life there. Work/life balance? Salary? Fantastic. Job satisfaction and management? Not so good.
they say its like home. unless you like sleeping with men!
Power Engineer (Former Employee) – Conklin, AB – 19 September 2013
management and panel operators get retention bonus. the rest get 0. equal bull. like one manager said we can get monkeys to run plant. well have not seen them there yet. maybe he was referring to his siblings or family. flights given to B.C. and Alberta workers rest get your own way to work. then they preach safety on the highways. lots of favoritism.
wild life and thats not the monkeys either.
Preservative foods Preservative foods mmmmmm! no taste no flavor!
Assistant Plant Operator (Practicum) (Former Employee) – Fairview, AB – 2 August 2013
Its a rotating shift work with 12 hours per shift, 28 days rotation. I learned Natural Gas process from wells to sales. The management were nice, they are very concerned about safety of individual. My mentors were great, taught me safety procedures, like doing repairs. They are very supportive. Hardest part of the Job is you have to work in any type of weather condition but I dont mind it. The most enjoyable part of this job is everyday challenge. You have to use all your senses.
worked for few year in the thermal side of Devon Canada. Devon needs to send some of the mid and high level management back to school. They just know simple gas reservoir and can not handle the SAGD complexity. devon also needs to change the simplified view of thermal projects and get to the details or stick to gas business and sell the SAGD.
