document control at Spectra Energy
Document Control Administrator (Former Employee), Calgary, ABJune 11, 2014
Pros: laptop computer
Cons: lack of training by management. you have to figure it out yourself.
Typical day is checking email to see who requires work. Prioritize email on importance. Always get the Transmittal out if required by engineering. Make sure date and data is on transmittal properly. After sending out transmittal. create folders of transmittal and put into SharePoint. Update a register of all the data and also send out confirmation to other companies that we have received their transmittal and approved the data.

Gas Processing
Sr. Planner/Scheduler (Former Employee), Fort Nelson, BCFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: sap knowledge training, not far to drive to get to plant, great health benefits
Cons: working with individuals that don't want to be part of a team, lack of communication with management
Typical day at work: meetings, walk around the plant site, planning & Scheduling work, order materials, SAP data entering, create PM plans and task lists.

Learn the equipment, SAP software updates

Management was ok but was not easy to talk with

Co-worker there in Planning Department was not that helpful, always finding fault in something, wasn't good at communicating. The co-workers (tradesman) for the plant as a whole were awesome, very informative and easy to get along with.

The hardest part of the job was trying to work with one in particular Planner

The most enjoyable part of the job was working with SAP and the Trades people on a daily basis.
