Exciting, challenging and diverse
Turn-around Warehouse Lead (Former Employee), Fort Saskatchewan, ABOctober 6, 2013
Pros: gift cards
Cons: long hours
The day would begin with a safety meeting which the lead or manager would discuss while involving other team members of safety hazards usually in and around the workplace but sometimes around the home as well. Then a discussion on how the previous days tasks went and what the plan is for today. Everyone would then assume their positions and I would – more... oversee the shipping, deliveries, front counter, and receiving of material for Turn-Arounds. The hardest part of the job was learning to adapt to different peoples learning speeds and types. I realized that it took some extra effort but if you put in the time to realize their strengths and weaknesses you could utalize anyone for a more efficient work place. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction with other people to acheive a common goal. – less

I & C TECHNICAL SPECIALIST (Former Employee), Albian SandsSeptember 7, 2013
Pros: good money
Cons: poor managing
The pay was excellent but the job itself was very disorganized. It started out looking like the best job I could have and turned into a flop. The people I worked with were awesome but management just couldn't put it together. There were 4 or maybe 5 different bosses flying in and out all week and we never seemed to have a true direction as to what we – more... were doing. Payday seemed to be the only exciting thing about this job Too bad it turned out that way. – less
