Dispatcher at Shell Albian Sands (Former Employee), Fort McMurray, AB – May 24, 2014
It was a wonderful opportunity for me. I learned a lot in a very short period of time, plus I joined the team at the beginning of one pitstop and transitioned into another one which was challenging, but a valued experience.

Cons: management, split shifts (boring in between shifts), no overtime
- Work / Leisure balance is adequate for a short period (14/7) - Has a great safety culture brought on by Imperial Oil - Other drivers become close like family - Management is very inexperienced and has an us vs. you attitude - Plenty of favouritism and hard work and professionalism is not rewarded
Coach Driver (Former Employee), Edmonton, AB – July 29, 2013
Drove workers from camp to job site and picked them up again at the end of their shift. I learned not to trust management. My coworkers were fine, The hardest part of the job was dealing with management. The most enjoyable part was being out on the road and driving the workers back and forth.
Office Assistant (Current Employee), 1225 Riverside Dr. Abbotsford, B.C. – April 9, 2013
Pros: customer service
Cons: no advancement
I love driving, dealing with the public on a daily basis is a comfort, putting a smile on someone`s face, makes my day.
Working on the inside of the operation is just as enjoyable, answering the phone is a challenge, I try to put a positive swing on the conversation whenever a customer is unhappy or upset, it`s not easy, but agreeing with them and – more... trying to rectify the problem usually smooths them over. – less
