Great job to earn experience
Reclamation Monitor (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB21 April 2017
Terracon is a small company that offers you opportunities to learn other specialties.

When supporting mining operations the schedules and compensation causes alot of workers to look for more opportunities.

Certified Engineer Technologist (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB9 March 2016
Been with Terracon for 3 years and it has been a great 3 years

A typical day at work will be in the field conducting compaction testing, concrete testing and construction monitoring. Working with QA/QC, engineers, supervisors, and foremen on site with the ongoing construction.

I learned a great amount of knowledge and experience in the construction industry, the oil/gas industry and more.

The co-workers at Terracon are great. They push you to become a better you, and strive to lead you into the right direction for your future

The hardest part of my job, i would say is time management.

The most enjoyable part of my job would be getting to meet new workers and being in the field working on something new every day.
Pros
Meet great people and learn allot from them. Great work ethics

An excellent place to start your career and gain field experience
Construction Field Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB20 February 2014
A typical day at work revolves around the construction projects within the Oil Sands industry (12 hours / day).
Lots of opportunities get hands on experience at field work / lab work.
Hardest part of the job would be getting accustomed to the harsh. climate and the absence of a major city life.

well managed and good company to work for
berm monitor/geotech (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB23 September 2013
-typical day/night at work involved; writing thorough and detailed notes throughout the day, filling out shovel sheets at the end of the day, compaction testing on lifts placed, taking samples of materials and taking them to the lab, talking to engineers and planners about the project and concerns, identifying and classifying material types that mining equipment are digging, relaying specs and design controls to operations and team leads, entering testing and sampling results on computer

-co-workers were easy to get along with, all became friends and hangout after work

-hardest part of the job would be to get operations to follow the cleaning and placing specs of a lift during winter

- most enjoyable part of my job would be the overall learning experience and opportunities to work with numerous people and different projects
Pros
barbeques with co-workers at site office
Cons
cold winters
