I&C Technical Coordinator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 23 July 2016
I was contracted by Roevin to a number of companies. It was enjoyable because a person learned more about his profession. The people that I worked with on a number of jobs were very professional and had safety as the major concern. The work was very rewarding because a person deal with various trades and engineering groups.
Potential Hire (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 June 2016
Couldn't believe an agency was less interested in placing me in a position. Seemed everytime I phoned them to see how it was progressing, they kept asking me for something else and sign up for a course.
All the agent kept saying was "I need to look good for my client"
Nothing in my experience
You are the one doing as much as you can, not the agent
I feel Roevin is about the best company i have worked with
Plant Operator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 June 2015
I liked working with Roevin they paid a good wage and always on time. They also covered me with a cost of living allowance. One thing that i always wondered about was they never talked to you much maybe the only time was is when they were going to have a event such as christmas party or golf ETC.
Good money, lots of hours Never anyone to stress you out.
Didn't have much say in working overtime when turnaround was started (38 days straight)

Inspector (Former Employee) – Alberta – 1 May 2013
Never will work for these people again. They committed to flying me back to my home and after I booked the ticket and got home they decide to not pay for my airfare. I was unfairly released by the client due to personal commitments and like all body shops they would not dare to challenge their client. Really making me think twice about working for any body shops in the future.
Pay check on time every week, The recruiter did seem to care but I guess his hands were tied.
Typical BS Body Shop, Cares for their clients, No worker Commitment, They only tell you the positives and leave out the negatives to get you on site.

Monitoring Support Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 March 2015
This helped me expand my knowledge and allowed me to familiarise myself with airside and terminal operations. By monitoring various sectors of the airport, it enhanced my analytical and logical approach to problem solving whether it was customer based, staffing matters or department concerns.
Document Controller (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray – 16 October 2013
Was hired for an entry level position where I was told all the training would be provided. That certainly was NOT the case. I was new, working with 'one' Sr. Controller who on a daily basis struggled with his work load that he didn't have any time to train me to effectively do my job. Brief instruction was given and I was left to my own devices on how to carry out a task from beginning to end. Some times being asked to do things that I have never done before or was shown very briefly 6 weeks ago that I never done myself. The management was non existent. No structure, support or leadership in the department. Then a month and a half later, I was let go with the excuse that I wasn't catching on fast enough and was compared to a summer student who come in and was so quick to learn and blah blah blah. Well ya know what... I would have too if I had a Sr. Controller sitting directly across from me who I could have asked questions to and aide in my learning all day for 8 days straight a shift. But the Sr. Controller quit leaving me without a dependable mentor. Whatever was asked of me, I did. So I not quit sure where the 'not catching on' bs came from. Just an excuse to cover for their own failure to provide and be able to provide adequate training to be a benefit to them. I have no respect for the department managers or the current Sr. Controller at this particular site. I was set up for failure from the get go!!! Very disappointing experience.
Pay was good
Poor management, no formal training provided, Sr Controller couldn't communicate his instructions clearly, not fluent in English
