General Labourer (Former Employee) –  Edmonton Alberta21 February 2015
Every morning we started off with stretches which got us warmed up for our day.Then our foreman would brief us on the tasks for the day and send us in partners to conduct tasks. Throughout the day he would check on us and discuss our progress and make sure we were on the right track. My coworkers were very helpful on my first day and taught me how to do my job properly and efficiently. I'd say the hardest part of the job lifting the heavier materials but I always had the help of my coworkers if something was ever to heavy. The funnest part of the job for me was working in the scaffold yard and learning all the different pieces.
Pros
3 Breaks a day made the work a lot easier
Cons
The yard was extremely muddy when the snow melts

A typical day at work,was interesting each and every day.of As a laborer it was never the same,which I found to be really good.I learned alot more about ground work and the proper construction,and the labor involved in constructing Gabion Baskets..Management was always helpful with personal matters and they kept us informed of tasks that had to be completed in the priority of importance...I worked with a diverse crew of laborers,and it was very interesting getting to know about different cultures,we all worked well together...The hardest part of the Job was the weather at times,and the travel to and from the job site...The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to meet alot of new and interesting people,as well as the rewards and the salary that we earned....

A lot of money with lots of complication...
Labourer/ Cleaner (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB16 November 2012
Yes you may have the most amazing pay cheque ever but the atmosphere and the organization in this work field is just horrible. The camp is nice but the people leading the project are not qualified to make things move and go on. In a 10 hour day you work 5 hours. Because of the contractor (syncrude) that is so much conserned about security, you cant do your job normaly. Be careful everything you do is watched...even if it doesnt seem like it. Be careful people seem nice but they will be the first to make you looze your job...
Pros
free food, camp
Cons
unorganized, overtime x 1.5, 14/7 shift
