The pay is above average, unfortunately very little culture or opportunity for growth Finance (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 5 August 2017 The pay is above average, unfortunately very little culture or opportunity for growth. employees are not motivated, and there is a huge disconnect between upper management and its employees
little investment in personal or career advancement, poor morale

Benefits and hourly rate
Worst Job Experience Ever Legislative Assistant (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 11 March 2015 Working in the Legal and Legislative Services department from Sept 2007 to May 2010 was my worst job experience ever. My supervisor should never have been a supervisor and was the most cold hearted person I have ever encountered. Peers at her level and above were well treated but myself and other admins who came and went were treated poorly. That is why no many admins came and went in this department - no one could work under her for very long.
