Sample Login Technician I (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 January 2018
My time at Maxxam was good, I would go in at noon or so usually, jump into my work. Scanning and delivering samples to the lab in a timely manner. My co-workers and manager were very pleasant and fun to be around and always willing to help me out. The hardest part of the job was remembering where everything went in the building. The best part of the job was the atmosphere, always friendly and happy but fast paced.
Can get very busy, hard to multi task. Although still manageable.
Great place to find your footing in Canada for newcomers
Lab Analyst 2 (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 14 February 2017
Maxxam is the market leader in Analytic research. It is great place for someone whose starting out their career. The company sees a large amount of employee turnover due to pressures on deadlines and turn around time. The company allows flexibility for most employees to conduct their work as long as it doesn't affect your quality of work.

Environmental Analyst (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 November 2016
A company you can learn a lot and spend your days working with amazing people. Unfortunately due to utility and government regulations we've gone through lots of ups and downs which i decided to look for other opportunities.
Project Manager Assistant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 October 2016
Good management was lacking. Supervisor too busy to ask for help when needed. HR department made their own assumptions so was wrongly accused. Was let go without chance to explain. Did not maintain confidentiality at all, so was made to look bad to fellow employees. Job duties were okay, but wage didn't match the job. Other employees agreed. Terrible experience.
Field Technician II (Former Employee) – Clairmont, AB – 30 July 2016
Job was fine at first due to it being my first full-time job that was not retail. Then everything went downhill with the company being bought out overseas, change of leadership then the layoff of over half the employees.
It was a job with good pay.
Long hours, staff was disposable, interoffice animosity and favoritism
Very Productive and able to learn so much through trainings
Environmental Field Technician (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 July 2016
A very wonderful organization to work with. Being in the Environmental Field, traveling is fun as you get to visit every single site of major oil and gas plants within Canada. Training for staff is a key for a carrier beginner and it never ends. The manager is such an understanding minded and very easy going. I worked with Maxxam both in Calgary and Edmonton offices and I would recommend it to anyone.
