Scientist (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 4 November 2017
A great place to start and learn. If you are young and willing to learn and/or refresh, great place to go. You will be exposed and get to learn a lot. However, it is a 'SWEAT LAB" and if you are seen to be the one wanting and willing to do everything, you will be worked and sweated. The salary is nothing to talk about.
Like I said you are exposed to everything. But it is worth it, if you wish to make this a career choice.
Technologist (Former Employee) – Lakefield, ON – 17 October 2017
A place to stretch your brain and get your hands dirty. Many innovative thinkers and doers at this facility. Much can be learned from colleagues and associates. Location is very nice; small town living.
Canada, Mechanical Technologist (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 24 September 2017
A good place to work as long as management does not involve themselves with the day to day running of operations. When management did involve themselves,chaos ensue. Most operations have a very transient staff.
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 8 September 2017
Working at SGS Canada was a great experience for me. Learned the process of how to test grain using laboratory. Grind grain to a fine powder for testing. Managers are very professional and nice to work with.
Senior Metallurgist (Current Employee) – Lakefield, ON – 28 August 2017
Probably the premier testing company in the mining industry. Largest and most diverse knowledge base and opportunities for learning new mineral systems, etc. Recent changes to management have not been positive and has the actions they've made have created a very toxic work environment and they don't seem to understand the business or the issues.
Large company, many opportunities (so I'm told)
Latest management group has low respect for employees
Loader (Former Employee) – Sarnia, ON – 5 August 2017
They treat their employees like expendable cattle...use and abuse and move on to the next new employee...total disregard for following their own policies and lack of professional integrity that they preach about so much...
Pay lower than industry standard, horrible relations between operations and employees
if you cant find any job this is the place to gain experience
Safety Cordinator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 6 June 2017
Dirty politics at all level, old employees gets threatened by employees with good qualifications and experience. Gang up on good workers , it's common. No structure in organization to help right people.
They underbid jobs and make their margin by cutting employee wages
Pipeline (Former Employee) – Canada – 23 May 2017
To call those people clueless is an insult to clueless people.
They grossly underbid work because they knew nothing about the job and what it required and then when they figured out they couldn't make a profit their answer was to slash employee wages across the board.
Their answer when the affected employees got outraged... deal with it... this is going to happen whether you like it or not.
Pipeline work is a passion for those who choose to do it. SGS soured that passion and will drive great techs out of the field for good.
Don't go to work for those people thinking you'll make a decent living. You won't.
