Company going through big changes
Payroll administrator (Former Employee), Calgary ABFebruary 25, 2014
Pros: accessable (downtown), great benifits, aproachable management, tight team (still friends), good learning enviroment
Cons: below industry wages, sloppy handling of personal info (sin #, ect), understaffed, poor handling of death within the department
-Typical day at work was a hourly payroll, bi weekly routine. I would upload the most recent time sheets from the various rigs and after going through them, contact various departments for approvals or changes.
-I learned: manual coding for payroll hours, salary deductions and credit programs and I gained a lot of overall experience with payroll programs.
-The – more... management was fairly hands off but made themselves very available with their time to help facilitate. Were especially good with new employees and the early learning process.
-My coworkers were the best part until our department saw close to 70% leave within only a couple months.
-I found the hardest part to be fighting the daily grind over 2 years. Often most of my duties hadn't changed at all, which I didn't mind, just some days tended to drag on.
-Due to our department fluctuating heavily with the drilling seasons, we brought in a lot of temp help to ease the burden. Helping the learning process by being a senior team member enabled me to be in a complimentary or support role which is one that I find enjoyably because it adds more of a human element into my daily routine. – less

Fast paced, team dedication.
Motorhand (Current Employee), Calgary, ABDecember 12, 2013
I enjoy working in an environment where team dedication is a large part of the job, learning correct techniques to accomplish any task and the safety fundamentals of doing such prove to be rewarding upon completion. A typical 12 hour day would consist of helping each member of the crew with daily routines from the start of the well to the completion – more... of the well in timely and efficient manner while strictly adhering to safety. For myself the hardest part of my job was leaving my family for extended periods of time, while at the end of the day it was rewarding to feel that a hard honest days work was done and no one was injured. – less
