Nameplate Fabricator (Former Employee) – Acheson, AB – 27 February 2017
This is a different nature of work compare to my previous employers and I must say that I learned lots when it comes to electrical, low voltage, switch gears and other stuff for oil and gas company. Learned the safety and security of working with a lot of hazards and also to communicate well on production and work orders to make sure that we deliver products on time to the client or customers.
Document Control & Estimating Administrator (Former Employee) – Acheson, AB – 30 June 2015
On a daily basis I would be working on Document control with a normal four projects at a time. When a bid was required to be submitted I would then work on being an estimating administrator and put a package together.
Getting into Powell was a whole different experience for me as I was a MTR Clerk for Valves. Now I was doing E-house drawings & using our own made spreadsheets for tracking our information.
My managers were always there for me and gave me the knowledge to better myself in my position.
Being the document control Admin, my co-workers were above me that require my help in any way and It was always a friendly atmosphere.
Work Early, Leave Early
Not having the database to better document control
Alberta apprentice (Former Employee) – Dawsone Creek BC – 16 July 2012
I was indentured as an apprentice electrician at the Dawson Creek processing plant during the construction phase. While working here I pulled a lot of cable by hand and with a tugger, ran SI heat trace and installed cable tray. On this site safety was a huge part of every work day. Between filling out field level hazard assessments, inspecting fall arrest equipment and all other personal protective equipment, creating a safe work environment was a priority every day on site. There was pay roll issues through out this job and many superior staff were fired or quit as a result. My co-workers for the most part were knowledgeable and gave me plenty of opportunity for hands on learning to expand my knowledge and capabilities as an electrician. The most difficult or dangerous part of this job was the night shift cable pull crew. The part of the job i enjoyed most was learning the electrical trade and the many different aspects of the industrial environment. I look forward to becoming a well rounded electrician with experience in the residential and commercial experience in the future.
