Manager (Former Employee) –  NiskuJanuary 26, 2016
Flat out deceitful. Review the tons of union complaints. Never worked for the same client twice. Treat employees like garbage. Short pay laid off workers. SEEK EMPLOYMENT ELSEWHERE, STAY AWAY FROM THESE GUYS.

GO BACK TO BC DRIVERS!!!!

Unstable company. Layoffs start right after date of hire
B-Pressure Welder (Former Employee) –  Nisku, ABNovember 26, 2015
Ridiculous management. Top heavy administration probably due to incompetence. No idea of workers needs or abilities. No recognition of how payroll is made in industry.
Pros
Countless useless meetings waste valuable time
Cons
Can't expect any security for people with integrity

Electrical QA/QC inspector (Former Employee) –  Ft. McKayAugust 26, 2015
I enjoyed working with JV Driver. A typical day would be up early for breakfast with co-workers. After which we would load the buses for the trip to the job site. Days were usually busy with lots of new learning opportunities. Management and Co-workers were good. After a long shift it was back to camp for dinner and some free time. Lights out early.
Pros
Excellent Wages, Advancement potential
Cons
Job security in the oil/gas industry is currently not great

Bus Driver (Former Employee) –  Nisku, ABJuly 28, 2015
Typical day began at 3 AM for a 300km run.

management communication regarding safety and other driver's issues was never better

The hardest part of the job was getting up in the middle of the night to start the day.

my co workers were for the most part very safety concerned people that never hesitated to let you know if you didn't bring your "A" game with you to the work place. They were the best people I ever worked with and have formed permenent relationships with a lot them.

The co workers were fantastic.

I enjoyed my time at Cold Lake. Met some great guys from B.C and Newfoundland. Still talk to them today. Wages were fair and the camp was comfortable. Had some good foreman and general foreman. Most were very approachable and dealt with issues as best they could. Would work night shift for these guys anytime.
Pros
Fun working environment
Cons
Lack of tools on occasion
