Decent work environment, gets boring after 3 years
Power Engineer/ Plant Operator (Former Employee) – Rocky Mountain House, AB – 28 December 2013
The night shifts prove to be pretty boring, best used for studying for ABSA's or learning a new skill on you-tube. Try not to get suckered into doing Husky courses over getting your ABSA tickets. Most of your coworkers will be great easy going people, you're certain to find things you have in common, and you should because you'll be spending a lot of time together.
Gas Bar Attendant (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 25 July 2017
I had to pump gas into 6 cars at times so lots of running around and no one else to help it would've been nice to have 2 guys work rather than one. I did get to know how to check under the hood from thus job.
Focus on Long Term Growth While Empasizing Safety and Integrity
Sr. Reservoir Engineer - Exploration (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 July 2017
Husky was a great work company for me to have worked for during the 13 years I spent with them. The other employees were for the most part very competent and caring individuals who took great pride in performing good work. The managers were focused and fair minded people that made good business decisions and worked with their staff on a personal level. Value growth was important to Husky but not at the expense of safety or integrity of operations. I feel maybe this part was over-emphasized as our competitors were able to achieve safe work environments but with much lower cost affecting Husky's competitiveness. That said I do respect Husky's commitment towards operating safely and responsibly - something the company's done in almost every environment possible making them a top quality oil and gas operator.
Overall Team competence, Operational Safety and Integrity
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Lloydminster, SK – 10 July 2017
Over the years, I have gained numerous skills have been able to collaborate with a variety of great people. I have made a lot of memories that I will carry with me in my next career. The most difficult part of my job is adjusting to re-organization and the layoffs of my colleagues, but overall Husky has been a positive experience.
Numerous learning opportunities, warm and welcoming environment
Lack of communication between departments, unclear expectations
Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 July 2017
Pretty flat structure and great for personal learning. Not too much room for advancement and weak job rotation programs. As with many organizations in the current oil and gas downturn, there is an expectation to do more with less. Sometimes there are long days at the office.
60 Hr Work Practicum (Former Employee) – North Battleford, SK – 26 June 2017
Great place to work, people are great, they practice what they preach, Family oriented, have great communication with the employees. Their employee training program is very through. Everyone is always willing to lend a hand and help you out.
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Delta, BC – 19 June 2017
The first two years working there were fine, but once year 3 hit the little annoyances really started to wear on me. It didn't help that the Fuel Station environment is VERY disconnected from the main store--left it feeling very isolating, which would have been fine with me if it had just been a little observation station instead of a kiosk, but when there are a hundred (often irritable) customers coming in every day and barely any contact with fellow employees, the little annoyances start to outweigh the relaxing aspects. Also not helped by the fact that I never got a raise in the 4 years I worked there, and never really felt comfortable asking for one.
Fast paced, Excellent facilities/Camp site, Great office space
On Site Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 18 June 2017
As a key player of teams in Husky Energy Project Controls I successfully worked on multi-million dollar projects (Husky Sunrise Phase 1) and multiple small sustaining projects. I came across many challenges, stood up, accepted them and delivering positive outcomes
Good work/life balance, good money, average management
Shift Engineer (Power Engineer, 2nd Class) (Current Employee) – Lloydminster, SK – 18 June 2017
Excellent work life balance if you're interested in living in Lloydminster full time. The wage and benefits are also substantial. The company is stable. Regarding management: if you're alright with being a minion you will love Husky.
Salary, benefits, shift schedule.
Management is not overly interested in your opinion.
