Good job
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB13 May 2017
drive haul truck what I learn is don't take your job as a full time job as it was posted on the job board as it is not a long term job.
Management seemed to be butting heads with the team leads.
the hardest part of the job was listening to the two-way radio all day long to much unnecessary chatter on it.
Pros
If you like operating heavy equipment then this is a good job.
Cons
to much unnecessary chatter on the two-way radio.

Very poor/low company morale
Accounts Payable Administrator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB24 April 2017
Typical day at work was usually fast paced. As recession hit Edmonton, there was over 3000+ layoffs in 3 years. Very low company morale. No one was happy at their job. You never knew if you were going to get laid off when you went into work every day. You can walk in to start your shift, then 20 minutes later you are walking out with your termination papers. Super strict, not out to help their employees succeed in any way.
Pros
Some free lunches
Cons
Horrible morale

Cut throat, toxic environment. Bad leadership
Project Coordinator/Engineer (Former Employee) –  Ft. McMurray Fort Hills29 September 2015
Always felt like everyone was on the chopping block, which ended up being true. Zero job security or loyalty to even full time, staff employees and engineers. Infighting between managers/directors. Some managers who were just completely clueless when it came to everything related to on-site activities. Oftentimes very unprofessional management. Job never felt safe even though you're giving it your all.
Pros
Decent pay, always busy, lots to learn
