Working at a Camp site
Health and Safety Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Cigar Lake Mine, SK3 June 2017
The camp setting was good great food /people and entertainment.Working with the mining as well as the Surface construction was a great experience. great managers and love working and training the Northerners who were like sponges as they were being taught new ways and ideas.

I then proceed to start my own company(JH Safety Services ltd) and work for Director of Safety at the same site Cigar Lake/ Rabbit Lake.I use to travel a few days a week between sites. The Safety Director was Wayne Anderson from the Saskatoon office . He was also a great Mentor / advisor.Working as Safety Manager/ Coordinator and field advisor.The Cigar lake Project was over 2 billion dollars and we achieved the project without any major Safety Injuries,with sometimes 10-12 different contractors.
I have always been on the Construction Management Team for the past 6 years.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Long Days

Technical Professional Leader (Former Employee) –  Multiple on site locations3 June 2017
The main priority is safety on every job. No craftsman or manger will last very long in this organization if he or she does not put safety first. Every project has rewards but none so greater than no one getting seriously injured. Quality and production are also highly regarded. Doing the job correctly the first time reduces exposure that could be hazardous in certain situations. Every day on a construction site has changing conditions and challenges to be met. My particular job was working closely with the project engineer writing and resolving RFI's per the engineer's recommendation. Close coordination with the area managers and discipline superintendents in regards to these issues was critical in order to meet schedule requirements. At any rate every challenge is great and stressful at times. You got to love it!
Pros
Good wages
Cons
Long hours

Senior quality assurance (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB21 May 2017
Good company, good job, management was old school and didn't understand all of the responsibilities that the quality department had. Therefore denied getting the manpower required and in turn made themselves look bad.

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
