managers have no respect for their subordinates no training was given expected to do 3 peoples jobs in a day without any help or benefits will avoid paying over time no matter what people are brown nosers
Project Coordinator/Engineer (Former Employee) – Ft. McMurray Fort Hills – 29 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.

Nacg was alright, they had there ups and downs. Money was great but you were more of just a number. Equipment was maintained pretty good, never really had any problems with this company, but it is a big company with lots of employees.

PSI meeting in the morning learned how to work safer and to understand the importabce of safety NACG has a good bunch of management people working with the operators have shown me that everyone is able to learn there are no real hard parts of the job if you follow the proper directions. the most enjoyable part of the job is when someone that i have trained suceeds.

Technical Services Lead (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 16 October 2014
I worked with a great group of people, the work itself became a little mundane, the same daily meetings which reviewed the same information multiple times a day. Direction from my superior was lacking and I wish I was able to have learn more in different parts of the company. It became apparent that once you excelled in something that's where you would stay. Originally the company had a program for new grads to work in multiple positions in the company to fully understand the full system and find a position they enjoyed, too bad it wasn't offered to a broader group of employees. All-in-all I was satisfied working with the company, it always boils down to you co-workers and superiors.

Manager (Current Employee) – Acheson, AB – 4 March 2013
NACG is a good place to work and has alot to offer an employee in terms of professional growth and challenge. The company definitely has room for improvement, but is headed in the right direction. Anyone with the right attitude and drive will quickly become a strong asset to the company. In addition, I have a very supportive team including my direct Manager. I am given clear direction and trust to get my work done.
supportive team and management; new ceo has brought in much needed focus
Purchaser (Former Employee) – Edmonton – 21 December 2012
Expectations for salary staff to stay until the job was done but asking for time off in exchange later was discouraged. The management in procurement created a toxic environment and training was minimal. My co-workers were the best part of the job, they where all pleasant hard working well educated people. Internal applications to switch departments in order to stay with the company were never acknowledged. At the end of the day the money was good and the coworkers great but thats where it stopped.
wages and benefits were good
toxic environment with little support from management
Is a good experience. It was challenging and fun. Co-workers are great to work with.

HSE Advisor (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 3 October 2013
This was a camp job. My schedule was 14 days on 7 days off. Every day had a different agenda. Your typical day was 14-16 hours long. We were required to report to senior management every wednesday. Co-workers and management were supportive and helpful. The hardest part of the job were long days. The most rewarding part of the job was the teaching and helping people to identify risk.
Continuous training & education, support, co-workers
Great place to work.Couldn`t ask for better co-workers.
