Certified MB Power Electrician Journeyman (Former Employee) – Manitoba – 11 October 2017
MB Hydro is going downhill. There is way too many management at all levels and not enough workers. They have brought in anonymous "Snitch Line" so coworkers can report on others anonymously or about management etc. Management does not trust their workers, and they are trying to scale back their work force. The company is extremely indebted due to mismanagement and political intervension. The pay, hours and benefits are about the only decent thing going here.Most coworkers are pretty good. Proceed with caution though with this company and trust no-one especially mgmt!
Engineering Technician (Former Employee) – Thompson, Manitoba North – 9 September 2017
I can say that I really enjoyed my career with Manitoba Hydro. I would go so far so say that I loved my job. I did a lot of helicopter flying, boating, ski-dooing, float plane flying. I learned responsibility and how to work with others and how to get the most out of my crew. I had some of the best management personnel that I knew. My work[lace was very diversified. The hardest part of the jobe was leaving due to retirement.
Meter Reader (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 28 August 2017
good place to work. pretty straight forward job. read electric and gas meters. typical day starts at the office to receive your assignments/routes for the day, then you drive out to your area start reading meters.
you don't really have a lunch hour so you have to eat on the go and you don't really get any breaks during the day, but you can work at your own pace.

millwright/station operator (Former Employee) – various stations in manitoba – 5 December 2016
was able to gain alot of education from the company. there was alot of room for advancement if one so desired. hardest part of the job was to appease the egos of the majority of the co-workers and deal with favortisim as well as the risk of being shipped away from your family to maintain employment.
Mechanical Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 4 October 2016
I have worked at the hydroelectric construction site, project planning and currently as a maintenance engineer. A typical work day is usually busy such as providing engineering assistance to the field workers, visiting sites and attending both internal and external meetings.
I have learnt new ways of getting things done, better ways of managing subordinates and best practice cost reduction strategies.
Excellent coworkers that fit perfectly well as a team. The hardest part of the job is supporting the electric and natural gas franchise of the company. The most enjoyable part of the job is the yearly performance increment.
