I enjoyed those i worked with and around, and the team environment that was offered.
The most enjoyable part of my job with Strike was the challenge it offered and how there was a challenge everyday. The feeling of satisfaction is wonderful.
Apprentice Welder (Former Employee) – Airdrie, AB – 22 February 2017
everyday was always the same, we would sit down before we started list the hazards and controls to be put in place. i would assist the welders with setting up for the welds as well as during, be it fitting, preheating, buffing and grinding, to running to grab water, whatever they needed we fullfilled. most of the management was good there were a few in place that had me questioning things but all and all everyone was great. it was a fairly good environment were all trades men so we generally all get along but everyone butts heads eventually its just how you deal with it. hardest part of the job would be the travelling the best part would also be the travelling, seeing canada for free has been nice.
B-Pressure welder's helper (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 4 April 2016
A day at work was helping a welder in his duties throughout the day. mostly just handing tools over when asked, setting up the work or cleanup the job site. Seldom i was given lessons on stick welding, i also learned how to use some specialty tools like a pipe beveller or different types of leveling tools. management there was very on top of things and always knew who was going were. Some of the people there were difficult to get along with but i typically only worked with one person whom i got along great with. The hardest part of the job was the insanely long hours and all of the driving it took to get to the job site. I enjoyed the friendly competition that the welders took part in.
Electrician (Former Employee) – Whitecourt, AB – 11 July 2016
Worked for strike for 4 months formans drinking and getting high every night. One even got a impaired in the strike truck. Then they come to work and treat everyone horribly because they are hung over and hardly slept. Someone will end up getting killed on one of their jobs!! Stay away from strike!!!!!
Steamfitter Apprentice (Former Employee) – crossfeild ab – 11 February 2013
The co-works at Strike were awsome and would help you with whatever your tasks were. I learn a how to be a welder help and a fitter apperntice. My most enjoyable part of the job was working on plant sites.
awesome experience and welcome the chance to do it again
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 8 March 2016
no complaints. work was standard 12hr shifts. meals were packed and taken for the days work. after work, dinner is cooked hot and the day is over. some coworkers are miserable but Ive tolerated worse. thank you strike for the opportunity!
laborious, high pressure, exciting, and love to work outside, no matter the conditions.
Welder's Helper/Laborer (Current Employee) – AB – 11 December 2012
generally the days are long hours but seem short there is always something to do. it can be quite dangerous but if you are aware of yourself and your surroundings things go smooth. the hardest part of the job is the labor at times but mostly enduring the weather conditions, the odd thing about that is, that those are also my favorite parts. i treat it like i'm constantly testing my body and mind. and no matter what kind of day you're having the people your work with are going through the same so its kind of like a band of brothers when your on a pipe line crew. everybody helps each other out
Administrator (Former Employee) – Various locations – 2 August 2014
It is a culture of nepotism, favoritism and teachers pet. If you don't Briwn nose the manager in the way he or she likes they will demote you and cut your pay. Currently in the Crossfield location all management and supervisors are not qualified in any way to be in their positions. They place those who they find their favorites inquisitions higher than those with actual qualifications. Unless you related to a manager, stay far far away.
The only one I can think of is that it is out of the city.
Electrician (Former Employee) – all over alberta, saskatchewan, and manitoba – 3 August 2014
Worked for Strike for well over a year on numerous different sites. Supers were all fantastic guys to work with and for. Office management on the other hand are useless and along with safety and the COO are all about false promises. No room for real true advancement or real proper training. If you want training you have to pay for it yourself!
Electrician (Former Employee) – Calgary – 8 May 2014
Worst management I've seen to date, was hired and immiedately after starting work was given days off for no work and subsequently a couple days after that most of the new hires we're given temporary lay offs. Their hiring add is still up. Zero transparency from worker to employer. Zero open door policy since it seems no one has a clue what's going on in the office. Turn over rate is so high theres utter confusion up the management ladder of who does what and what their roles and responsibilities are. Completely unprofessional and a bunch of scabs. Just a total lack of respect and disregard for workers in general.
material handler (Former Employee) – balzac,AB – 30 January 2015
i loved working for strike. The management and supervision team was amazing,they were fair with all workers and made sure that everyone was doing there job safely every day, and there to help if needed.my co workers were all very hard working and dedicated to doing there jobs safetly and efficiently , which made me feel better about being there. i have learned a lot in my time at strike, i am striving to be a pipefitter, so being in the materials warehouse was a great place for me to start.
Crossfield (Former Employee) – Alberta – 19 August 2015
If you are family or a friend of management you will be protected. This is a company that will keep family/friends safe and dispose of other employees that are doing a great job. Definitely have their favorites. If you fit into this category you will be fine. If not, stay as far away as possible.
Quality Control (Former Employee) – Calgary Area mod yards, AB – 5 May 2014
Highly unorganized, inefficient management of manpower. Little accountability for supervisors and leaders. Very little support for workers. Low wages. Constantly asked to work on days off. HUGE and over bearing workloads. Just a mess.
The best part of the job was the co-workers, amazing group of people who are unfortunately, literally pushed beyond their limits.
I truly believe that this company will be great to work for in the future... once they get their feet and management under them.
Business Development Administrator (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 16 August 2013
Although my job can be highly stressful most of the time, I receive full support from the other BD team members (not to mention other Strikees). I love that Strike supports and sponsors myself and other Strikees for their personal passions (mine being darts!). Strike does so much good work with and for the community - we even have our own "Social-lites" group which organizes events for team building and charities. I've learned so much from working at Strike, I don't really know where to start! I think the hardest part of my job is gathering information and documents for proposals so that nothing is left until the last day. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting home to my family each evening and looking back on what I've accomplished during the day.
