Most employees will find that 90% of these positions will require you to work a length of time, that will be from 1 week to 9 months. At which time you removed from the work while you are on days off and your belongs will be shipped home at that time.
Equipment trainer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 October 2017
Enjoyed working in different environments different toss meeting new people but the downside to it is that you leave your family behind for a couple of weeks every every rotation and do you miss out on things with family all in all if you like the rotational work they are good company to work for
Safety Consultant (Former Employee) – Iqaluit, NU – 13 October 2017
At the time Nuna was doing some very dangerous safety no no's. I spoke up to prevent incidents which after I left did happen. they did terminate the main person who was responsible for the improper acts. And have a great safety manger now, would definitely go back for a contract there.
Warehouse Technician (Former Employee) – North West Territories – 3 October 2017
This is a seasonal Job (Jan to Mar) I have a total of over 8 season on this winter road. Love the day to day challenge and co-workers. The management is helpful. The weather is extreme. Hardest part is freight delivery at the mercy of the weather.
Crane Operator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 24 June 2017
Incompetent cowboys in leadership positions that promote unsafe behaviour and you need to suck up to get anywhere.... not worth the time! The only good thing .... for some reason the have really good people on the tools.
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 21 June 2017
The project managers here are the worst. They have 0 idea whats going on. They dont even have site drawings. What a joke. The hire and fire staff from site all the time. Why not just transfer existing staff to new projects?

Equipment leader (Former Employee) – Yellowknife, NT – 5 April 2016
This company had everything backward. I was hired, directed and planed out scheduled. But when this plan was put into action, none of it was what they told me originally. I was instructed I would be operating a grader maintaining ice roads and flown into camp, operating day shift after receiving my orientation. Flight took 2.5 hours, and drive took over 13 hours after that, so after landing and driving over 13 hours to camp, foreman pressured me into working the same night I arrived. I explained to the foreman that wasn't a safe idea due to the fact of traveling for more then 15 hours with no rest, the foremans response was that everyone did It, everyone travelled to work for 14 hours then worked a 12 hour night shift. I told the foreman no! After he tried guilting me into it 3 times and me saying no 3 times, they told me they had nothing for me and were going to fly me out. I refused unsafe work, so they sent me back home?!?! Saying they had nothing for me?!? Why hire anyone if your going to have leaders that will break the law to meet production? Or cut corners by not orientating people before work is to commence. This place had little to no management in their supervisors. It is not a place I would go back to without safety in writing first. Once I got home then they told me I quit?!? I did not quit, I did what I have skill in. I was obligated to refuse unsafe work. They asked me to commute for 15 hours, then work 12 hours at the same night in a place I have never been before, operating a plow truck on thin ice with no medics or ambulance In the area. Needless to say, drivingmore... over thin ice can be nerve racking on its own but doing it in the dark, with no way out of the work area other then driving, and our entire work force is building the ice roads. This process is a disaster waiting to happen, the question I had the first day up there, was how many lost their lives up there for the gold and diamonds, just to build the road in every year. It's a experience I will never go back to, I've been in construction for 38 years, and these guys don't believe in safety at all.less
There were none
They have no safety policies and procedures enforced
Driven, Passionate about people and getting them home to families safely
Environment, Health and Safety Manager (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 4 October 2014
The role was a 'ground up creation'. Previous to my arrival the company was a small to mid level construction company with very little EHS exposure. Company realized to get better, more work their safety program including health management, hygiene and safety management required a lot of work.
From a 3.9 TRIF down to a 1.8 in less than 3 years showed desire and want to get better.
With several 'major' program creations, upper management support and desire to succeed the company was driven to adopt and utilize programs such as Drug and Alcohol, Return to work, Risk Management including better inspection protocols, including operating procedures, maintenance and mechanical procedures, Risk assessments and Task specific hazards assessments to the ground personnel accepting change that included field level risk assessments, safety observations on peers and equipment to quantifying leading indicators and the recognition of how important they are to an overall EHS program! Additionally the desire to remove personnel who were holding up change made the road to its success less bumpy.
Co-workers were one dimensional, focused only on their departments. This slowly changed but made work environments difficult at times.
Most enjoyable part is watching the plan come together, everything newly developed and implemented is working as designed and seeing how the workers responded to the consistent yet very transparent program coming together.
There was noting hard about the job. Always challenging and very dynamic. I never signed up for boring, I signed up to progressmore... the company into something they did not even know they wanted until it was there.
Love the job, enjoy the company, the company will be successful if certain road blocks are removed.less
Smaller company, making decisions easier, less buracracy, got to know everyone, even at site level
Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 December 2012
I liked the 2week on 2week off schedule.The work was interesting and varied.I enjoyed the crew's I worked with from the resident's from the north to all the guy's that come from the south.The supervisor's were awesome.Someday's the weather could be a challenge but you learned to just accept it as the way it's going to be.I liked the lifestyle ,the travel ,and mostly the people.
