management seems to need more smokes than to actually do their jobs. and your lucky to get paid on time. was working a shut down and morale was zero everyone just sat in lunch room . full of false hope. they should try hiring guys that have knowledge not a bunch of unticketed yes men

Jr. Electrical Specialist (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 17 August 2017
high salary, not much benefit. poor management. Have to find task for yourself after one is done too keep yourself busy and safe your position. Kind people, give juniors opportunity to learn and expand their knowledge.
Jacobs management had a follow up & feed back process so there would be no surprises.
Expeditor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 August 2017
A good place to work & advance. I was on contract through an agency when I worked there. The work day was spent following up with suppliers & other members of the team. I learned how to work with a new data system. Management were fine. The workplace encouraged a follow up & feed back process. The hardest part was moving & getting used to the new facility. The enjoyable part was that Jacobs had a great cafeteria.
The good friends I made there, the cafeteria, the encouragement I received to become a member of the Wild Rose Expeding Group

It has a gym where you can workout during lunch break or whenever you are stressed from your work. The workplace culture is fantastic. They have Jacobs school on line where you can take trainings on line and they offer management and leadership training.

Jacobs has the culture of taking the time to perform job duties safely. I learned that no job is important enough that i can't take the time to do it safely. supervisors help workers with organization. working at heights above 50ft.
