Sr Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Edmonton, AB – January 19, 2016
Pros: Free food and benefits
Cons: Poor Management - like to micromanage office staff
Office Manager is VERY cranky at all times...only sees her side of things and does not take suggestions to im prove office...making office moral very low.. Received a 2% raise after working hard for 2 years...office manager is very belittling and doesn't care about anyone's feelings but her own. Hr is not for employees and not very professional...if you talk to them about a private problem the HR manager will spread it around the office - another con....really small office so you know who started what fight...wouldn't recommend working here.

Human Resources Specialist (Former Employee), Edmonton, AB – November 16, 2014
Pros: excellent money
Cons: being away from home
I worked in the human resources office which was fun and exciting. Hiring new people was a challenge at times but rewarding. Having to conduct lay offs was the hardest part as it was tough to see people go. When you're in camp you build bonds with people.
Lead Accounting and Finance (Former Employee), Fort St John, BC – June 22, 2014
Pros: flexible work schedule
Cons: long hours
I have learnt so much from this company and was given multiple career opportunities within my 6 years of service, The people that I worked with were supportive. The most challenging part of the job was converting from SAP to Oracle but managed to over come the challenges.
Very productive and taught me alot. Let me use skills I didnt use at my last work place.
Sr. Adminstrative Assistant (Current Employee), Cigar Lake Project – August 11, 2013
I love working here but with first Ore around the corner I am looking for future employment. KBR Wabi will no longer be on site. Ive learned alot and meet alot of great people, it will be so sad to leave. My coworkers were the best and made me feel at home instantly.
My last three months with KBR Wabi were very interesting to say the least. The AMR Project I was on was poorly run with inexperienced supervision and emotional upper management. In my 3 months on this project I seen multiple firings and dismissals happening for no good reason. I seen a man fired in the toolcrib for no valid reason so a position could be opened up for the general managers son. Family members were being promoted with no previous supervision experience. People were given titles and roles just for a pay increase and there was no sense of direction at all. I would not recommend working for this particular division of KBR to anyone. The pay was ok and the benefits, but that was CLAC handling that aspect. On the bright side the workers on the ground were fantastic and I met some great people.
