SENIOR CIVIL/STRUCTURAL DESIGNER (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – February 8, 2016
I have worked for a number of Engineering firms in two continents, and I can confidently say, Fluor Calgary has been the most rewarding place to work. Its rather sad that I have to say goodbye, but I had to do leave previously in 08, when the economy slowed also. I cant recommend this company enough!
Great respectful atmosphere, very professional, and really looks after all staff
Safety Training Coordinator (Former Employee) – Mongolia, ON – November 14, 2015
My day used to start around 7am and finished at 6pm arranging HSE trainings for employees. Making schedule for all employees and working with trainers and attending for weekly meetings and making weekly and monthly reports and archiving the training information . I've learnt how to deal with working long hours . I enjoyed working with my co-workers. There was nothing hard part of my job . I really loved working there . the most enjoyable part was working with foreigners and making a good environment for both coworkers and employees .
Civil/Structural/Architectural PRINCIPAL DESIGNER (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – November 7, 2015
Fun workplace with supportive colleagues. I enjoyed most of my time dealing with different personalities, nationalities and culture. Normally, in a big company like this with multi-national employees, of course, there are some politics played around involving my peers but they are all easy to get along with, just don't mind them and just concentrate on your task so you will not be affected. Just focus on your job and you will not notice or feel the politics.

Procurement Technician/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB. Canad – October 14, 2015
I would love the opportunity to work with Fluor again. Found Management supportive; Your are not overworked ...although there are tight schedules, particularly on a Project. Fluor trys to keep a work/life balance; in that, they have a gym on site and walking groups: also the Health and Benefits scheme is excellent due mostly to its flexibility. The attitude at Fluor is provide a great service to their Clients; thus it gives the employee a positive swing towards our Clients.
As a Junior I was constantly talked down to and made to feel useless
Junior Piping Draftsperson (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – August 27, 2015
I spent 2 years with Fluor Calgary feeling uncomfortable and mistreated. As an inexperienced junior I was led to believe I would become a designer, received the training for the software and was never allowed to use it. I was told not to bother the designers with my questions and year later after my training I was thrown into a busy project and was told I wasn't performing and was even questioned whether I ever attended school.
I was then told that if I performed badly I would get a bad reputation in the industry and would never find another job. I was given 2 weeks to turn things around, during which time I was given other projects to do, never getting around to improving and nothing was ever explained.
I spent the next 5 months getting scraps of work which hardly filled my day. I was told by one of the other managers I was set up to fail. I was also told that unless you're female or a foreigner you'll take twice as long to get anywhere.
I left shortly thereafter...worst experience of my life.
My experience has always been excellent. A group of people and individuals who actually care about doing the right thing and the best job. I believe the firm's strengths go back to the beginning formation of the company and has remained intact through 100 years of existence.
