General Labourer (Former Employee) – Estevan, SK – 24 February 2017
I was hired for a boiler shut down and it was basic standard stuff. You get tons of overtime but be prepared to get like no sleep. Very long hours and sometimes I would work 3 weeks straight without a day off.
Specialist, Specifications (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 22 February 2017
I personally am very much of a people-person and love to network and building long lasting relationships with customers strategically. SaskPower did not provide that opportunity for me during my stay within the company. This crown company provides great benefits to you and your family with a good paying wage. However, this company itself is mainly lacking of a workplace culture and value in its own employee. The hardest part of this job is you are always expected to get your job done without any appreciation and recognition of your work. I want to be treated as an asset more than a number in a company where I am not just someone that can easily replaced, and demonstrate a work place into a professional yet with a warm personal touch as a topping to the organization.
Project manager / technical consultant (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 10 February 2017

ETL Developer (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 14 March 2016

Director of Overhauls and Heavy Maintenance (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 10 November 2015
An interesting and challenging place to work, there is always opportunities to grow. I improved my job skills and honed my personal development skills I would spend many hours working on contracts and budgets for plant overhauls and turnarounds, The most enjoyable part of my job was the team building, I put lots of effort in building and nurturing overhauls teams, I received a lot of satisfaction mentoring and watching the team grow and become strong As the company is a crown corporation, with the major shareholder being the government, I find myself putting in long hours and many miles on the road to attend meetings,time management is a major hurdle for this company. That being said,I have gained very valuable experience and confidence in planning and executing overhauls for thermal generating stations
Great place to start out but if you want to move fast in your career look else where.
Facility Operator (Current Employee) – Estevan, SK – 28 July 2015

Customer Support Representative - Business Support (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 7 July 2015
Working in SaskPower has been a very exciting experience to me so far. The most enjoyable part of my job is going the extra mile to make customers happy through excellent service delivery.

Light Standard Inspector, AMI Installer (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 14 June 2015
As a meter installer, I am required to travel to different district such as Regina, Moose Jaw, Tisdale, Prince Ablert, etc. for work. It helps me to see different part of Saskatchewan and provides me a chance to meet people in different areas. Sometimes, hotels could be bad or customers' dogs are aggressive, but this also help me to develop my independent skill and problem solving skill. This job has also strengthen my communication skill a lot since providing a good customer service is a big part of the job.
Working in a corporate environment was a possitive experience
Business Support Assistant (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 18 March 2015
A typical day at work went by really fast due to the heavy workload and demands of not only the public but internal staff, working well as a team to get the job was something I took pride in. I was fortunate to work with some great people that also had a good vision in the company.
Would like to go there for upgrades only and leave after.

Facility Operator (Current Employee) – Estevan, SK – 21 April 2014
Obtain relief from previous on site operators as to equipment operations and any work being done which affects us. Change for the shift, head up to the control room, check the log books, and attend safety meeting prior to shift start.
Management is very visible during the day shift, and helpful, courteous, and knowledgeable.
Toughest part of the job was dealing with weather conditions and how it affects the fuel provided to the boilers. Otherwise its a fairly smooth operation, with only the occasional problems encountered on any work site.
Kitchen in control room, canteen during day shifts, food ordering optional
stuck in the job, can advance up, but wish to go overseas
