Collaborative work environment amongst team members. Long hours required to be recognized and rewarded for efforts.

Pipefitter (Former Employee) – Northern Alberta Canada – 12 January 2017
The most important thing was safety first. The well being of the men and women on the job. For example: And by the way this is true. If it took 12 hours to make the job safe for a 15 minute job! Then that's what it took. Like I was saying, the well being of the men and women was there top concern. I'm not saying they didn't want the job completed, cause they did. But it was done right and safe.
They were always giving out safety awards to everybody, I mit and its was quaility items at that.

Too much office politics, not enough recognition for contributions, good job security
PE (Former Employee) – Sarnia – 21 September 2016
Work/life balance can be a challenge, too much office politics, not enough direct recognition for contributions. Management seeks all the benefits of profitable business and often tend to take credit for results. The workers do not tend to work as a team as there is significant internal competition. The work environment is competitive and therefore offers a good learning experience to grow.
Work camp environment. Imperial takes the PC movement to a whole new level.
mechanic (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 19 September 2016
Kearl is full of backstabbing weasels ready to throw you under the bus to try and get ahead, beware of offending anyone as you'll be fired so quickly it will make your head spin. If you enjoy working for a bunch of fairies who pretend to care about you it's a great place. No union equals no job security. They can do what they want with whomever and they do !
Politically correctness out of control, very limited food options
Shipping/Receiving Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 September 2016
Was a great place to work when it came to the people. It was not organized when it came to the leadership. I felt as if the wrong people were in the position of power and the deserving ones were overlooked. Otherwise it was alright to work in this environment.
