Team Leader/Electrician (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 13 January 2017
Pyramid was great to work for in regards to fantastic management, great co-workers & a lot of ongoing projects available throughout the province of Alberta. The shifts offered were beneficial for travelers & family life.
Journeyman Electrician (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 10 January 2017
A place for those to acquire a variety of skills depending on location and contract availability within oil sands, commercial and Industrial type settings. Thus boosting ones skill bank and providing them a skill set to move on to something more permanent or to ones liking. typical contract industrial work.
Basically a place to learn and feel things out for the future
lack of older senior skilled tradesmen, makes learning difficult
Human Resource Administrator - Intern (Former Employee) – Nisku, AB – 26 December 2016
Every sector is in a different part of the building and not much communication was between work areas. HR was split up in different building cause lack of communication between fields. Besides that the work environment was great and my co-workers in recruitment were excellent with helping me and learning along the way as I was still a student in the Human Resource Management program. It was a great learning experience in the recruitment section.
Instrument Technician (Former Employee) – Bonneyville, Alberta – 24 November 2016
Enjoyed the aspect of being home every night. I just didn't like the area I was in and found that I didn't really fit in to the culture there. I was an apprentice at the time and don't believe I really undrstood the "lay of the land" at the time.
Contract Administrator (Current Employee) – Nisku, AB – 4 August 2016
I've had the opportunity to work with many different people in many different roles. I've learned alot over the years and have nothing but respect for the company. Pyramid has been great since day one. I couldn't ask for a better company to work for and grow with.
General foreman (Former Employee) – Wabasca, AB – 28 July 2016
Field supervisor ruined not only my experience but everyone that rolled through the area. Out in over 16 years with the company in many areas and they were all fantastic learning experiences. 5 of which were spent in wabasca. Made great friends and soaked up wonderful experiences. However the last few years were spoiled by having awful field management. The direct supervisor looked out for only him, charged hours for days he wasn't there and rubbed it in everyone's face. Purchased new homes, luxury cars, world travel and worked out deals to go under full contract. All while raking the amazing group of field techs through the coals. It was sad to see such an amazing place to work, deteriorate to nothing while under his watch. I would never recommend anyone work in the wabasca area. ( unless management has changed ) To make matters worse, the client field foreman puts blinders on and spoon feeds the corruption. Such a shame to see a great area with knowledgeable, dependable and motivated techs getting abused the way they are. One by one they have been leaving... And good riddance.
Operations and coworkers are amazing.
Field supervisor destroys all sense of morale and self worth
