Toxic enviroment
Engineering/drafting (Former Employee) –  Airdrie, AB13 April 2017
Work day is typical…working on the tasks given to me to the best of my abilities giving 110%, but I feel that is not enough here.
I've learned a great deal there, but it's not recognized.
Poor management...have that feeling you're not trusted (that you're always second guessing yourself), poor mentorship and having to always watch your back.
Being bullied (having experienced both mentally & physically).
You cannot speak your mind without repercussions or having the feeling you don't belong within the particular work discipline (group/department).
I have made a handful of very good friends while being there.
Pros
very good learning ground
Cons
walking on a tight rope

Friendly working with friends, but supervisor are not friendly with workers, more boss like
Insulator Technician (Former Employee) –  Airdrie, AB11 April 2017
Good Employer, good benefits
Work time is hard, too early in morning
Supervisor and lead hand and Engineering Department decide all on the job, worker has no input to be considered, this would not help for the work to be more progressive and advanced for the better
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Too early in the morning, long hours per day

A large local company in energy section
QC inspector (Former Employee) –  Airdrie, AB23 February 2017
Propak Systems is located in Airdrie, has engineering, pressure vessel manufacturing shop, piping shop, structural shop and large assemble yard.

The company was organized very well. Products were moved ahead quickly. As a QC inspector, I had to work hard as per schedule, and kept good communication with all stakeholders to make sure high standard quality being maintained.

Company had mutual HR policy for employees. And, every month had a safety meeting informed employees about what's happening in shop and field, and collecting staff advises about improvement.

Crane Operator (Former Employee) –  Airdrie, AB3 February 2017
if you like a place were getting treated like garbage and having to always watch your back then this is the place. management is just a bunch of buddies who treat people they don't consider part of the group like dirt. safety looks great on paper until you walk out of the room then its get the job done or be an outcast.

Good techinical experience was gained due to a manufacture shop on the premises
Electrical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB21 November 2016
Propak gave me excellent technical experience due to a manufacture shop being located on the premises. However, the office politics were very truculent and there is little opportunity for advancement within the company due to nepotism. Work here for about four to five years and then leave before your sanity goes. Also, Airdire is a spiritually degrading place to live and work due to the jive-plastic commuter tract home wastelands, the Potemkin village shopping plazas with their vast parking lagoons, the Lego-block hotel complexes, the 'gourmet mansardic' junk-food joints, the Orwellian office 'parks' featuring buildings sheathed in the same reflective glass as the sunglasses worn by chain-gang guards.
Pros
Excellent technical experience was gained.
Cons
The office culture was very poor.

Welder/Facility (Former Employee) –  Conklin, AB18 March 2016
This company was fantastic to work for. They gave us the opportunity to teach young apprentices. The contract who the camp was through made things tough as the camp was not the greatest. We were thankful when our hitches ended, because of camp conditions.
