A great place to work
ADMINISTRATIVE SPECIALIST / LOGISTICS COORDINATOR (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB10 March 2017
A great typical day at work full of new exciting while daily discipline routine.

I learned to multi-task, learn new responsibilities in the same department.
Great Management. Great bosses and easy to talk.
There was no pressure on deadlines but still hard working atmosphere.
Nothing is hard when bosses are great.

The atmosphere always allowed breaks every two hours, stretches during morning and made us ready to get back to work next morning.
Pros
always a chance to change department or promotion
Cons
Exciting, but busy

Not bad for wages but no Contractors
Pipefitter (Current Employee) –  Ft Hills19 February 2017
Steady work. But it seems to favor east coast workers. Not many of us from Alberta.
Welders have it the worst. Q.C. will fail you on visual and 3 strikes your out, no matter hat X-ray results are.

Unorganized
Foreman/General Foreman (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB14 February 2017
I didn't mind worker for this company. They only reason why I enjoyed the company is because I had a great boss otherwise they treated you as a number. They tried to enforce FR coveralls in a mod yard when it was +35 out. There was no reason to be wearing the FR coveralls but yet they made everyone wear them.

Horrible company
Pros
Great boss
Cons
Treat workers as a number

Foreman (Former Employee) –  Joffre, AB20 January 2017
A great job that probably had the wrong people making the decisions which ended up being the end of the contract. I had to leave due to differences of opinion and shortly thereafter the contract was lost.
