safety orientated environment, good wage, and excellent opportunities for growth
Wheel load operator (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK3 November 2017
It was a safety orientated place to work at. We started out the day expressing safety concerns and how to make the jobs easier for one another. There was not a hard day at work and the best and enjoyable part about the job were my co workers and management, They made it easier to do the job by training and offering the right tools to do the job.
Pros
good pay
Cons
shift work

Lots of opportunity but lacking leadership
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Fort St. John, BC5 October 2016
With Shawcor their is a lot of opportunity for advancement. I found the people I worked with to be the main reason for going to work as the job is quite unfulfilling.

Day to day work changed all the time at customer requests. Employees were often told what they were doing during the day, just to be thrown in 3 more directions within an hour.

I recommend this company to anyone looking for advancement and an opportunity to climb the corporate ladder, but if you are someone looking for structure, organization and leadership....Look elsewhere.
Pros
Guaranteed full time hours in oil patch position
Cons
random hours (8-16), dont make any plans for weekends as your on call 24/7

There is so much to learn, not a very progressive company
Project Manager, Process Engineering (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON12 September 2016
Shawcor is a big company or let me correct myself used to be big in the industry. Backward decision making and lack of coordination have made it a less scary rival for others out there.
Things got worse when the oil price went down in 2014. There was no strategy to get on its feet that's why most of the new hires tend to be on contract which jeopardized the job security.
Pros
Still a pretty big name, One can learn new things
Cons
Poor benefits, no job security and less place for improvement

Great when oil prices are high...
Sales and Marketing (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB28 May 2015
Lots of great people but doesn't realize the company has zero brand recognition outside of the TSX trading floor - a small fish in a giant pond!
