Casual work environment with highly volatile scheduling
Construction Inspector (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 19 January 2014
I enjoyed the work and the environment, however the nature of the materials testing industry is volatile. This is not Thurber's fault, however; it is simply the industry. This makes it difficult to know one's schedule more than a day or two in advanced. The hardest part of the job was the long hours during the busy season in late summer/early fall. The most enjoyable part of the job was the tight-knit office environment.
Good atmosphere and friendly staff
Long hours and volatile scheduling
