Water Truck Driver/ Packer Operator (Former Employee) – Morinville, AB – 13 March 2017
I very much enjoyed my years worked for Sturgeon County. I was able to acquire a lot of experience performing different tasks. They afforded me the opportunity for advancement. Due to cutbacks,they were not able to offer my previous position.
Lack of Business Planning leads to zero organization for project based work
Business Analyst (Current Employee) – Morinville, AB – 26 June 2015
Don't join the Business side of Sturgeon County.
They've grown too fast and have not implemented the practices they expect management to follow.
I was hired as a BA, and brought into a mess of a situation where I was supposed to be a PM, a procurement officer (where no processes were in place), tester, trainer, quality assurance, change management, etc. Which would be better if the SMEs and project sponsors understood PMI practices.
Relaxed and Enjoyable Atmosphere Conducive to Learning
Seasonal Labourer (Current Employee) – Morinville, AB – 23 September 2014
I quite enjoy working for Sturgeon County. The hours are great, and the work isn't overly difficult. The work comes in waves, as it is mostly reported by civilians. It is nice to have a surprise every day you go to work, never knowing what awaits you. Some days you work very hard, some not so much. They are understanding, but you are not babied. You must be able to take care of yourself and follow safety policy without someone nagging you along all the time. The atmosphere is great, I have gotten along well with almost everyone, and have made several good friends outside work. The work demographic is young, and is suited for mature, independent individuals. There is plenty of opportunity to learn and move up the job ladder. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a fantastic job that pays very well, seasonal or permanent. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting up at a restaurant or bar after work. The hardest part was repairing bridges, as it uses a fair amount of muscle, and it's normally really hot out at that time of the year.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) – Morinville, AB – 17 August 2012
work independently running grader Monday to Friday I have some great co-workers The hardest part of my job is being able to complete an area at the end of the day because they don't want you to work over your hours.
It was enjoyable working with the clients but the coordinator was not qualified.
Program Facilitator (Former Employee) – Morinville, AB – 12 April 2012
We worked independently with clients. I enjoyed the clients but there was definitely a lack of them. You only got paid once all of the sessions with the clients were completed so that could mean every two months or possibly more.
There was good training but not enough money coming in on a regular basis.
