Junior Ecologist (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 16 March 2014
This was my first time working the the field as an employee rather than as a volunteer. I always felt safe to express my concerns and felt comfortable in my work environment.
I learned how to manage my time, how to prepare for bad weather conditions, and the traveling made me a wonderful driver. Also, I become very familiar with the paperwork that needed to be done when environmental assessments are conducted.
Everyday, I was doing something different. I spent a lot of time traveling to my field work, but then also spent days in the office doing paper work.
I learned how to be responsible for myself in the setting of a large company. I learned how to do my own expenses, rent cars for myself, and what was expected in a field environment whether I was working alone or with others.
I enjoyed working with everyone at Stantec. I got to meet and collaborate people on all levels.
There weren't many aspects of this job that I found hard. I felt physically challenged in the field at times, but I enjoyed what I accomplished.
The most enjoyable part of my experience at Stantec was learning the different aspect to environmental assessments, and feeling like I was making a difference in my own community.
Overall, this position trained me to be an exceptional field worker.
Excellent working environment and a great opportunity for learning.
