The production is cool and have team work
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB14 July 2016
I work at night and I learned a lot and awesome training everyday is additional knowledge for me and very interesting. They send us on training related on our job and even safety and health seminars with certificate.
The management every month they conduct a meeting to updates us the company. The supervisor veryday they talk to ask.my co worker same we have a conversation related on job.
For me the hardest job is always in the beginning because you think to much but after all of hard work training and patience then it's really easy and you love it and indeed it's fun

Unstable company
Ehouse (Former Employee) –  Acheson, AB30 November 2015
There is no job security. One day they say lot of work, next day there is layoffs. Not good management. Last year too many people were hire and the plant extended too much. This year many people were let go when oil price went down. There is no work life balance, lot of stress to get work done when it is busy.
