Worst work experience in my entire career!
maintenance (Former Employee) –  Exshaw, Alberta17 June 2016
This company is all about getting the most for the least, employees were fired for asking for raises, or scheduling days off and saying they had plans if called in during their scheduled time off.
Absolutely awful company, avoid at all costs. Do not waste your time with this one, its a dead end job that'll take you nowhere in life. Yet one you'll likely get fired from, for no plausible reason.

The truly idiotic upper management within this company loves to micromanage in the worst way. They love to pit worker against worker. Manipulate, backstab, and lie. The "union" there is a joke. Problem is, there are so many issues within the company due to part shortages, or having the wrong parts in stock, zero mentorship, Zero training. Also, the work is very unsafe, and frequently forced to lift well over 100 pounds by yourself, despite the max being only 50 pounds.. but the company was FAR too cheap to ever buy a crane, so what choice did we have?

They also screw people over on overtime, hours, and pay raises, and training. Missing numerous hours off your paycheck is quite common.

I dont want to write a novel, but I literally would be here for hours typing up all the issues with working here.... All in all, please trust me when I say this, DONT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY!!!! YOU WILL REGRET IT, I GUARANTEE YOU.

Had a good experience with this company but the lack of upper management leadership is creating unfavorable conditions.
Pros
Good place to work and people are friendly
Cons
Lots of politics, Poor upper management leadership (trying to show some teamwork but people don't believe it), They don't walk the talk to give honest feedback

Wonderful place to work. The payroll department is under HR. The payroll manager and payroll team have been very welcoming and enjoyable to work for and with. The overall HR team is great. They are very friendly and fun. I am learning and growing.

Travaille seul et sans supervion du superviseur
four mobile (Former Employee) –  Joliette, QC29 June 2013
Une journée typique commence avec inspection des véhicules et le remplisage de diesel. Vider le silo de déchets du four à chaux à l aide d un 10 roues et vider le 10 roues dans la carrière à endroit indiqué, plusieurs voyage sont requis. Ensuite descendre le loodeur dans la carrière pour monter du charbon et du coke à l aide d un loodeur et d un 10 roues ou d un hors-route pour l alimenter le four à chaux, encore là plusieurs voyages sont requis. Je suis en constante communication avec opérateur des fours. Quand les silos de charbon et coke son plein, il reste a vider les conteneurs de déchets du four a l aide du rood off et les vider au endroit approprié. L aspect le plus difficile est la chaleur des fours et la chaux qui peut bruler la peau. L aspect le plus agréable est que je peux gerrer ma journée comme je le veux, l important est que le four ne soit pas affecté par le manque de charbon ou par les silos de déchets trop plein. Pour le management, ont rencontre les patrons le matin avant le départ pour nous informer de la journée.
Pros
Le travaille extérieur
Cons
Le manque de sécurité
