CUSTOMER SERVICE (Current Employee), Fort McMurray, ABJune 26, 2015
Pros: Free room and food
Cons: hitches too long, no time to enjoy personal life.
Fast paced, learned a lot about kitchen work, management not very helpful, some co-workers good, some bad, hard physical labour putting away groceries. Laughs were the best part.

Customer Service and Wordpress Blogger (Former Employee), Fort McMurray, ABMay 26, 2015
Pros: Well Paid, Hours to Work, Good Benefits, Fed During Work, Community, Working With People from All Over Canada
Cons: Long Hours on Your Feet, High-Stress Environment
Working 10-12 hour days, 21 days in a row with 7 days off. In a very remote area 45 minutes away from the city, a shuttle bus would go into town twice a day. The camp provided accommodation to those working on Oil Sand sites. I would work both in the Tim Hortons coffee shop that PTI owned within the camp, or Housekeeping. The Tim Hortons served those working in Oil Sand sites in the area, and thousands would stand in a very long line-up to get food and drink each day. The Tim Hortons was short staffed but well organized. Staff were incredibly hard working individuals who even in the most stressful of times, managed to greet customers warmly and provide services quickly. Staff became friends and family in such a close-knit environment. Although well paid, it was expensive to leave the camp (and charged to stay on days off), providing a low life-work balance.

Working in a remote area
1st cook/ camp manager (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJanuary 11, 2014
Pros: working solely on your own.
Cons: remote area jobs can be lonely.
A typical started about 4:30 am and ended about 8:00 at night. Long shift, and had a 2nd cook and staff.
The hardest part of the job was three meals for 200 man camp. Keeping up the demands of the clients, and getting two different lunches out to the Rigs,being transported on the Rig truck.
My co-workers had to work in sync with me. at all times.
Management would only visit me twice a month, I worked solely also did the office work.

good summer job with great people and amenities
Housekeeper (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABNovember 12, 2013
Pros: free accommodations, meals, and fitness equipment
Cons: were sacrificing family life while out there
we worked between 8 and 12 hour shifts (mostly all 8 in second summer) for 21 days on and then 7 off. You were in a secluded location (2 hours north of Fort Mcmurrary), so adapting to the environment was a must. I learned to be away from my family and respect days of. I also learned to work alone and according to a quota. Management was awesome, co-workers became family.
The hardest yet most enjoyable parts were working alone (or in small groups) and meeting/surpassing the expectations of some of the personnel I dealt with.

Housing Retail Worker (Former Employee), Fort McMurray, ABNovember 3, 2013
Pros: great pay and benefits
Cons: working out of province, had to pay for flights home
I loved this job, I just wish I got to go home at night. Being away from all your loved ones for 21 days can only be tolerated for so long.

Upper Management Sucked
Maintenance Manager (Former Employee), Fort McMurray, ABSeptember 29, 2013
Pros: nice rooms
Cons: a little dick who was a boss and had no clue what he was doing
I worked for PTI from 2 1/2 years and was treated like a no body from my Manager! I was the maintenance manager for 4 lodges for them and I had a great working relationship with my maintenance crew and the lodge managers, but the little guy I had for a manager made it hard to get up and go to work everyday. My wages sucked for a Maintenance Manager because of the high wages they paid the union staff. I liked my people but the upper management did not no how to take care of the maintenance , if the little guy was gone and he let people who new how to do there jobs do it there would be no problems? I also watched a guy get electrocuted as the manager for construction was never around and he had a kid with no exp running a job. All in all they have to make changes if they want to keep good people

Small camp, but had tv room, gym, and pool tables
Kitchen Worker (Former Employee), Fire Bag, AlbertaApril 20, 2013
I would be scheduled for either morning or evening shift. I would get along with all my co-workers, and I learned so much from them. Also I learned a lot about different cultures and languages while I was working there. I greeted everyone I seen with a smile and I could always laugh. I think that was my most enjoyable part about the job was loving the job. I enjoyed everything. I smiled in the morning at the beginning of my shift, and I was smiling on day 21 at the end of my shift. I would have to say the hardest part of the job was always being switched back and forth from morning shift to evening shift in the same rotation. It was hard on the body, and took a toll on my sleeping patterns. I made a lot of friends from all over the world while I worked there, and I got a long with managment as well. Over all, it was a great experience, which I hope to have again.
