Management a HUGE liability
Loader (Current Employee) –  Sarnia, OntarioOctober 15, 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.
Pros
union is helping us fight back.
Cons
management, low pay

Stay the hell away
Former Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BCJune 8, 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
Pros
if you like to be treated unfairly
Cons
low wage, constantly shuffled around, cut your hours, no leadership from management

Geological technologist (Former Employee) –  Fort mcmurrayNovember 27, 2013
Worst company ever. Do yourself a favour and apply elsewhere.

They lied on my interview with the schedule and steady wage.

They will hire you and sit you home for there convenience .

Very poor management, runned by high school graduates. Most or all have no education.
Pros
loa on your resume put an outside province address they won't tell you.
Cons
the whole management and work atmosphere

It seems that when you go on holidays you might return and find your job doesn't exist. Management displays lack of integrity.I would use this company as a last resort.
Cons
employees are treated like mushrooms.
