Shuttle Driver (Former Employee) –  Alberta Oil Sands8 July 2014
One of the greatest jobs ever to do however, the management is extremely poor.
They have no respect or appreciation for the employee or their efforts. They push you around all they want and screw up your schedules and routines on you at the last minute and regularly, yet expect you to be flawless in your duties.
They can be condescending towards workers always giving you runaround and BS. They fire people over pettiness.
The equipment is junk largely due to worksite conditions but most of it is already old obsolete retired junk prior to service.
Very adversarial environment.
Great job for a butt kisser or a puppet.
Pros
Lodging and travell assistance, Great co-workers, good pay.
Cons
nickle and diming, no job security, pettiness

not fun place to work
School Bus Driver (Former Employee) –  Airdrie, AB21 September 2017
The management was not so great. They don't seem to realize you work with kids and the job is not easy. The easy part of the job is driving the bus. The hard part of the job is to deal with the children. You can have an awesome or the worse group of children. The company is not really helpful and blame you for not controlling the behavior of the children on your bus, They don't appreciate what you do to help the company either.
It is a good job if you really need a job and can't afford daycare.
Pros
can bring children with you
Cons
hard to deal with the children with no help from the company
