Construction Manager (Current Employee), Fort McMurray – September 30, 2014
Definitely enjoyed my experience at phoenix, the safety culture is excellent and the people and benefits are the best have seen. Everyday was a learning experience for me and it made it a company that I can truly say was a pleasure to work with.
Pipe-fitter (Former Employee), Northern Alberta – March 27, 2014
Pros: work/home life, great wage, good people in the field
Cons: poor management
If you are purely about the money and have no other prospects, they're. Not bad. They were short-changing us travel money that the client had told us to our faces we were being given for travel. Stealing directly from the workers. What else is new I guess.
There were a lot of good folks in the field. Field upper management didn't care about us and – more... it was very clear even when they "pencil-whipped" meetings going through the rhetoric about saying how were addressing our issues (they weren't addressed). – less
Carpenter (Former Employee), Nexen Kinosis – December 8, 2013
Pros: good wages
Cons: dont give a **** about their workers at all.
Don't work for these guys. Their HR will lie to you about everything from start date to actual shift length(they like to short shift you so they don't have to pay travel) and what camp you are in. Also they will down grade your camp once you do a shift. Every person there complained they don't get pay stubs, they tax the live out they pay for placing – more... you in an awful camp, and little to no safety. They don't care what's going on in your personal life. They have one foreman for 30 guys. This is the worst company I've ever worked for in Alberta, never work for them. – less
Too many related people holding positions with inadequate field experience. Upper management onsite speaking in a derogatory fashion about most everyone and each other. Very, very low morale. Most seasoned journeymen quit after a short time, leaving the site with a majority of the entire crew being very unskilled people working in the field. Female – more... employees are desired by onsite supervision to be potentially targeted for after shift companionship. – less
