Great environment for work
Operations (several positions in the Refinery) (Former Employee) –  IOL Nanticoke RefineryFebruary 5, 2013
Very challenging and interesting work - definitely an environment to learn new things everyday.

Management always stressed Safety was number #1. Have worked for other companies , however would have to say IOL is at the top of list when it comes to safety.

Hardest part of any job is not so much the technical side, but the interactions with other people.

Most enjoyed working on new projects - always challenging and very rewarding when project is completed.
Pros
good compensation - benefits.

Great crew environment
Plant Operator (Former Employee) –  Cold Lake OperationsMay 5, 2014
At this company you will work 12 hour shifts, on a 5/4, 4/5 rotation. You can expect to work night shifts once you are qualified to work in all units.

A typical day at Imperial can get really busy as you have to write permits first thing in the morning, followed by a morning meeting to discuss the days work in each units, but it can also be followed by a few welcomed slack days.

While at one of the plants, I've learned to work in all 3 units. I was also blessed to be trained by this company in the art of working safely and to look after your fellow team mates.

Co-workers were the greatest as most had plenty of experience to draw from. Really fun environment with great co-workers.

The hardest part of the job is to be available at multiple work sites within your unit when a lot of things are happening at the same time. Being safe becomes more so a priority and communicating with co-workers and contractors alike is very important. Besides having to do your own work, dealing with other priorities can be stressful, making this I think the most difficult part of the job.

Getting together with co-workers and management on a scheduled event such as playing golf and other extra curricular activities is the greatest part I think.
Pros
great work environment
Cons
the culture. still old mentality

Long Hours, we did achieved to set-up the call centre and get it going in three months.
