Position in NL both management & collegues were extremely helpful & supportive.
SENIOR EXPEDITOR (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 14 August 2017
I was hired in Calgary, AB on contract but agreed to become permanent within a year. A position became available in St. John's, NL shortly afterwards & as I'm from NL, I requested consideration. It was agreed that I would be on loan for two years. This was extended to three years. A typical day was always busy. I learned how to participate/conduct meetings with Suppliers. Even though it was a fast paced environment everyone there, management included were very helpful & friendly. The hardest part of the job was keeping on top of manufacturing, inspection & transportation schedules to ensure on time deliveries. Learning about the equipment requirements for a new industry - Power. Best part was renewing old friendships & making new ones.

Terrible, unqualified managers who cover up their ineptitude by pushing staff to do their job. Frequent reminders that the job market is sparse.
Scientist (Former Employee) – Canada – 25 March 2017
The compensation for the hours worked and stress is very low. Staff is under stress as they are reminded constantly that they are lucky to have a job. Totally unqualified managers with lowest ethics I have ever encountered. Learned nothing and conversely had management consistently take credit for the staff's personal work. Coworkers are amazing but underappreciated. Often they hire entry level workers that they can abuse and don't know any better as they have never worked at a reputable company before.
Maybe other departments are better but mine was abysmal.
Power Engineer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 14 March 2017
No real training or safety essential courses were given. Expected to know your job and position first day you arrive. They have a hard time letting problem employees go. Creating animosity within the job.
Le travail était très diversifié d'une journée à l'autre. J'ai gravi les échelons en passant par différentes étapes dans le secrétariat. Les employés et les patrons sont tous des personnes avec qui il est très agréable de travailler. L'aspect le plus difficile était la rencontre des échéanciers mais en général tout ce déroulait très bien.
Mechanical/Piping/Structural Designer (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 16 January 2017
Given opportunity in different design disciplines to develop skills. Flexible work hours. Colleagues were always respectful and helpful when required. Most satisfying part of the job was at completion of a project where you could see what you helped design. Hardest part was balancing priorities between different projects.
