A unique industry, so they try HARD to keep their people
Project Manager (Current Employee), Calgary, ABJuly 6, 2013
Pros: 100% medical paid, respectful culture, company restaurant
Cons: can be long hours when in remote locations
The management is very forward thinking and each hire is carefully selected because the company tries hard to be a very long term career for their employees.
Some divisions of the company (especially at the waste management facilties) work long hours but are paid well for it.
The benefits are great with 100% medical paid and christmas week off in addition – more... to a standard 3 weeks vacation. If you're lucky enough to be in the head office they have a non-profit restaurant (Siftons) that serves an ever changing menu of gourmet 5-star restaurant food at food court prices. Plus, the coffee and tea available throughout the office is free, organic and excellent.
There's a (free) fantastic company gym too that has top of the line exercise equipment, fresh towels and lunchtime exercise classes.
This isn't the highest paying company in terms of cash wages/hour in Calgary, but once you start enjoying the benefits offered you realize that you're getting paid generously in kind, without giving the taxman a share. – less
