maintenance technician (Former Employee) – IRVING OIL REFINERY SAINT JOHN N.B. – 20 May 2013
Worked im maintenance for a client.Executing work orders.Learned that their philosophy is if you want to get ahead you have to bring out the knives.Favouritism was the order of the day.Management on the site are a bunch of paranoid control freaks who encourage finking and demand blind loyalty.If oyu get injured they treat you like a criminal.They peddle their culture of caring,then break WNB rules regarding incident reporting.Co-workers were ok.Hardest part of job was watching the atmosphere change from let's go to work to "watch your back".Most enjoyable part of the job was the physical job itself.
Very good working Engineering Company to work with.

There is always room for advancement in your career.
Higher management lacks concern of your next job when your project is done.
Supply Chain Specialist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 January 2017
Great pay, work and life balance, very poor job security, poor management, and a very bad job culture. I had a great team but too political at the top with too much focus on individuals climbing the ladder then the whole benefit of the people and the company.
Manager of Project Accounting Field Services (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 24 October 2016
Jacobs had to be the best example of team work that I have ever seen. Team members would actively seek out to help other team members when their work duties allowed it rather than sitting with nothing to do. This was a top down management style where everyone was prepared to pitch in to ensure monthly deadlines and requirements were met. Team members actively coached and mentored other team members by sharing knowledge, job skills and experience.
Productive, great learning to be had. Foreman has little to no epeirance in this line of work and it shows
Millwright (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 5 January 2017
Great shop, well equipt, workers are great. Foreman and upper management do not make the job worth it, however. Foreman adds pressure on trivial jobs and is not confident on serious jobs. Pressure shows and is unable to handle it.
Instrumentation Designer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 May 2016
A typical day at work is just like any ordinary desk work where you are just on your computer throughout the day. What I learned from this company is their culture of caring for the business, your goals and self improvement, and the well being of their employees. Management is average and can be improve better. Co-workers or colleagues are probably the best thing about this company. Very friendly and family oriented environment. Hardest part of the job probably be sometimes trying to meet deadlines with such tight schedules. Most enjoyable part of the job is probably the people you work with and the somewhat relaxed nature of the work depending on which position in the company you're in.
Corporate Challenge, Coffee breaks, Friendly work environment, room for career advancement
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 February 2017
Really enjoyed working for Jacobs, in fact I wished I still worked there, there was a lot of office politics that happened the last few months I was there so decided it was best to leave as I wasn't into getting into the office politics.
