Document Controller (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 19 August 2013
There is too much work at this office. You can work 70 hour weeks and not be caught up. Do not trust management. HR leaks information. The manager is a bully. Co-Workers are great, for the most part, there are some abusive people, and nothing seems to be done about them so it continues. Nepotism does exist for sure. Women should watch out for sexual harassment, and then to be labelled a trouble maker and black listed.
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

I only worked for a couple of years for Jacobs however it was a very positive experience with assistance when needed. All employees felt part of the team and were able to build positive relationships with the vendor.

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.
Productive, professional and enjoyable work place.
