Previous Employee (Former Employee) – Canada – 1 February 2013
Poor working environment, fly by the seat of your pants management style with little to no training. Lack of leadership and direction, employees shown very little respect. High stress work with very limited reward. Beifits package is below average.
management lacks leadership and direction; poor training
Former Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 8 June 2013
Poor and indecisive management led to many layoffs within the department and the cutting of hours for contract employees. If you are permanent full-time they will not cut your hours.
Personally in my case, if the work is slow and the department is not making money, they cut your hours with only one day notice. Got used and bounced around because I was on contract. Attended department meetings only to be told to go back to work 1 minute in. Worst lab I ever worked at and I have been around
if you like to be treated unfairly
low wage, constantly shuffled around, cut your hours, no leadership from management
Well diversified Company, a pleasant, professional and fun work environment!

I would definetely love to continue to work for such an organization!
A/c tech (Former Employee) – Canada fort mcmurray – 20 February 2013
Pay is average Shift can be good Management , supervisors (Qa/Qc) positions are filled with employees who have been there the longest, and not filled by qualified personnel . Numerous infractions regarding health and safety. Integrity is preached but never practiced. I would not recommend working at fort mcmurray location.
Loader (Current Employee) – Sarnia, Ontario – 15 October 2012
Management is unskilled, underqualified and continuously places us in unsafe conditions. They preach code of integrity but have no integrity of their own. Management has lied to their employees about everything from benefits to raises. The only reason I continue to work for SGS is because I haven't found another job yet. All these are reasons why the SGS Sarnia site unionized.
