Operator (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB24 August 2017
Pretty decent place to work, they have a good understanding of what they need to do to be competitive and keep crews busy. Can make a buck or two more at other companies but these guys have always have work even when everyone else is closing their doors.

Have seen a few people leave and they quickly realise the grass is actually greener here and they come back.
Pros
Steady work, camp jobs
Cons
Need to get hats again (swag)

went downhill once they hired people from a defunct company to look after the Head office.
rock truck driver (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB9 May 2017
At one time Morgan was considered a great place to work. That has since changed as they got rid of employees over 50. And the number of Aboriginal employees went down. Not good.
Pros
good contracts
Cons
failing to listen to employees with legitimate concerns and getting rid of them, rather than dealing with concerns

Allot of work out of town in camps. They don't allow employees to bring vehicles. you must travel in a crew van.
Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Ft. McMurray18 February 2016
The jobs you do are fine if not enjoyable, but if you work out of a camp; you are stuck at that camp for three weeks. Most of the people you work with are easy to get along with.
Pros
Direct deposite
Cons
allot of work in camps with no transportation to any near by town.

Kept in the dark and treated like diposable garbage
Excavator/Dozer Operator (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB13 January 2016
Very disorganized company. very clicky, if you wernt one of the boys you were nothing. You wernt told about changes till the last second. they would switch off a job at a moments notice and not explain why. Kept operators that were not safe or even good at their jobs because they were friends of someone else.
Pros
beter then being unemployed
Cons
everything else

A diverse company which offered many different oppurtunities to expand my knowledge.
Operator/Labourer (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB3 November 2015
A day in a Morgan Construction position has you getting up early, travelling by bus or truck to the job site, participating in a group safety meeting, recieving your assignments for the day, then going straight to work in rock trucks, etc. I have learned how to work safetly in the field while obtaining many certificates to help me do so. My management was enjoyable and I quickly became friends with all my co-workers. The hardest part of the job is constantly being away from home and my family. I found the most enjoyable part was developing relationships with people in all fields of expertise.

A very safety conscience company to work for.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB1 May 2015
My typical day at work started with safety meetings and tool box meetings with our supervisor and crew, which made our daily duties more clear and organized.

I learned that safety is the most important duty at work, next to being present. Paying attention to management detail(s) allows the crew members to perform their duties effeciently in an organized manner.

The hardest part of the job is compensating for crew members who are lacking to details from management. On the other hand, the most enjoying part of the job is the ability to problem solve cohesively according to detail, and requirment from management.
Pros
Overtime Hours
Cons
Bad Weather

Cons
low wage, no travel allowance or flights

The management team at morgan are a wonderful group of personnel to deal with.
The health and safety team are amazing, always there to give advice when needed and very understanding.
The hardest part of the job was being away from home ( that comes with any camp job).
Working with such an amazing crew that loved to laugh and have fun was the most enjoyable part of the job.
