Journeyman Instrumentation Technician (Former Employee) – British Columbia – 5 January 2017
I worked at a small site as a contractor and therefore my view of the company in general is very limited. They seemed to treat their own employees much better then contractors but then again that was only at 1 small site of theirs and could be completely different elsewhere.
Great place to work, advance and above average pay scale.
Contract Safety Advisor (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 9 November 2016
Great place to work and / or contract HSE services. Management is very good to work with and supports on-going education. Safety culture is well established. Unfortunately very little work at this time.
Engineer/Eng Technologist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 16 October 2016
I had worked for Encana for over 8 years since the end of 2007. This is the first and also only one company I worked for after I came to Canada in 2005. My co-works and leads are all very professional and friendly, I got a lots of training and learning opportunities to develop my technical and personal skills. I would like to work for Encana again if possible.
Good pay, great benefits, loved the 1st and 3rd Fridays off and vacation time allowed
Surface Land Administrator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 1 September 2016
I loved the benefits and the vacation time, but opportunity for advancement was lacking. In my opinion some middle management roles were filled by under qualified people and favoritism was obvious. Enjoyed that I wasn't micro-managed and the relaxed atmosphere.
lots of free breakfasts, lunches, snacks. great benefits
Engineering Technologist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 6 April 2016
Encana offered a wide range of career advancement opportunities and was very driven on helping their employees reach their career goals. Daily work was interactive, positively challenging and interesting. The workplace environment was driven, focused, and supportive. The hardest part of the job was...I can't think of a hard part. And the most enjoyable part was feeling satisfied and accomplished after each completed project!
eInvoicing Onboarding Technician (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 March 2016
I was surrounded by an intelligent and hardworking team that got along well inside and outside the office. I learned about data integrity, internal and external user support for the cloud based invoicing platform that keeps Encana running like a well oiled machine.
Senior Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 6 March 2016
Learned so much and made some great friendships in the past 3 and a half years. The BOW is a beautiful building to work in. I worked in two different groups for the same VP. Encana was the biggest company I have ever worked for and it was an adjustment after coming from a company of about 100 people.
2 Fridays off per month
Company has to downsize by 20% because of low commodity prices
Good company to work for with great support in all aspects
Contract Inspector (Former Employee) – Dawson Creek, BC – 7 January 2016
My daily routine consisted of working with the Facility engineers in all aspects of the projects. - AFE creation - Assisted in creation of contracts and evaluated them - Worked with Facility Engineers during pre planning phase to pick the best routes and dealt with Landowners as I scouted the project. - Worked with the EPC companies to be certain they were providing accurate drawings as per Encana specifications. - I sourced and ordered all materials for the projects after obtaining quotes and comparing costs and delivery times. - During construction I supported the inspection team to be certain all Encana requirements were being met. While working with Encana I was able to learn the up front work that was involved on pipeline projects as well as facility projects . The 5 years I worked for Encana allowed me to have the opportunity to work both in the field as well as in the office. This was a great mix for me and I enjoyed the experience .
it support (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 December 2015
When first employed by Encana, it was a vibrant, fun, and technologically relevant place to work. Since upper management changes, and a change in CEO, the culture has changed dramatically. Trying to get and keep quality people has become a challenge. IBM has become entrenched and service and support have drastically decreased as a result.
Prior to the amalgamation of EnCana and AEC, EnCana was a positive, proactive company with a lot of opportunities available to the employees.
Forensic Accountant (Former Employee) – Calgary, Ab. – 10 September 2015
In my last position at EnCana, I worked with a small group (7 people) in what was basically a new department set up to research the PanCanadian Heritage Royalties and verify that these royalties were being paid correctly and in a timely manner.
This department was newly created, as were the positions within it, so it was very exciting - a programmer created a program that linked the PCP leases and accounting information with various outside information programs (pipeline, online production data, etc.) from there, as I was the PA of the group, my responsibilities included reviewing volumetric, pricing and payment timeliness by vendor. Dependant on the outcome of the property review, decisions would be made. For example, gas pricing was very high at that time, so the decision was usually to take-in-kind and market the gas within EnCana's own marketing department.
In our first year, this group recovered well over $40 million dollars in unpaid, incorrectly paid or by changing the marketing arrangements to EnCana's marketing their own product.
It was a very rewarding experience, and with us being such a small group, we had a lot of fun but were able to get a lot done. We also had a good manager and a diverse group, so there was no competition or power tripping. Upper Management recognized our achievements and rewarded us accordingly.
It was a very enjoyable part of my time spent at EnCana.
Company providd a lot of opportunities to learn new skills
