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.
Very professional, EPC philosophy, full of opportunities and challenges
Project Controls Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 November 2016
The day at work is enjoyable. Multiple projects that offers opportunities to learned. People is very friendly and you can enjoy a good coffee in Jacobs cafetiere. Jacobs facilities are open from Monday to Sunday so you can achieve your professional goals and enjoy good family time
Enjoyed working with the diverse background of employees
H&S Supervisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 November 2016
Really enjoyed interacting with all personnel on site, from the client (Shell) to various other contractors. Every day was a learning experience; challenging at times when issues arose but I was always able to call on my supervisor for guidance and direction. I would not hesitate to work for Jacobs again should the opportunity arise.
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.
Sr Subcontracts Specialist, JFSL/NWR Project (Current Employee) – Redwater, AB – 17 October 2016
Great home office management .support for field staff. As a previous employee I was happy to return. As this type of work is project based, it eventually comes to an end and in this current work environment no future opportunities are available with this company
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 13 October 2016
Majority of the work is project oriented with tight deadliness and strict budgets. Lots of noon hour learning sessions given on industry concepts (for example: heavy oil production). The concept of relationship based contracts takes away the antagonistic attitudes of clients so they are genuinely fun to work with.
Good project leadership. Lots of parking at Quarry Park location.
