Better hope you are either from Newfoundland or just don't care and keep your mouth shut about everything
Journeyman Carpenter (Former Employee), Surmont 2August 11, 2013
Pros: big paycheques
Cons: all the chain of command and 80% of the workforce were from the same town
The crew I was on had 11 men from Newfounland and 2 that were not. One of the other crews had 1 that was not . The superintendent's son worked on our crew. My foreman was the super's very good friend for very many years and the son saw him as an uncle type thing. One of the carpenters got set up as a leadhand regardless of the fact that there was no – more... leadhand position that existed on that site. He did happen to live within shouting distance of the foreman though, so yeah.....

I am not here to have anything bad to say anything bad about anyone who is from Newfoundland or any other province in any way whatsoever . There were just too many neighbors and cousins and sons and fathers and old hockey buddies in one jobsite for their to be any sort of equality of treatment and representation for the minority....which unfortunately happened to be Albertans. – less

AP Clerk (Former Employee), Ratliff City, OKJuly 18, 2013
Pros: nice working hours and atmosphere
Typical work day was busy. The co workers and management were wonderful to work for. The hardest part of my job was payroll, calling the employees when they did not turn time in and trying to collect it. I learned a lot at Flint. I learned how to do accounts payable, payroll, learned more about the oil service field. I enjoyed going to work everyday. – more... I loved working there, did not want to leave but we moved out of state. – less

Surmont 2
Pipefitter (Former Employee), Surmont 2May 15, 2013
Pros: have your own washrooms.
Cons: too many to list.
Job site is a joke. Unless you're from Newfoundland or the Phillipines forget about actually working in your trade. The job is totally unorganized. Most foreman are completely clueless and unable to manage their crew.

You are treated like a prisoner while in this camp with all the rules.

If you want to make a quick couple of grand it's o.k but be – more... prepared to lose some sanity while being there. – less

Nothing good to say
Supervisory (Former Employee), Ft. MacJanuary 17, 2013
Cons: get out while your ahead
Not a good company to work for. Very high turnover rate in the HSE Department. Being micro managed by corporate. Basically they monitor every minute your in the office and wondering why your not in the field. To many Bosses. They just pass the buck so Lead Safety don't have to do anything.

One of the WORST Companies to work for!
Truck Driver in the Oilfield Hauling division (Former Employee), AlbertaDecember 9, 2012
Pros: easy to get time off.
Cons: low morale, disorganized, favortisim, unethical treatment and intimidation tactics used by the safety department.
The overall morale of the workers with positions out in the Field is absoulutely in the toilet! Safety department Bullies and Intimidates its workers with policies and huge amounts of mandatory paper work. Lack of communication and failure to follow consistent practices does little for encouraging a safe enviroment. There is little respect and many – more... unethical activities occuring towards Field Workers! Don't waste your time applying to work at URS Flint! Unless you work in the office, you will not be happy! – less

Bad place to be, probably worst in Alberta!!!
RIg Welder (Former Employee), SurmontDecember 1, 2012
Pros: not much!!!
Cons: stay away from this job!!!
Poor leadership, and low quality people in the office, Safety, QC,and management. This job site and URS itself shows how busy it must be in Alberta. They can't find any quality people to provide leadership for the job. The Surmont Lodge camp has paper thin walls, and low quality food, an limited choices for lunch to take to work. if you say the wrong – more... thing to a coworker there don't be surprised if you are Railroaded ( fired ) off the job. It will be a sad day if I ever have to work for URS Ever again. – less

After nearly 30 years in theElectrical trade I made the mistake of working for URS Flint. The recruiter tells you one thing, Then once your on the job site management changes their tune. We didn't,t get paid nearly the right amount for the first week and didn't get pay stubs. When one of the crew sent an email asking about the issue he was fired on the spot. An Electrician on the opposite shift raised a safety concern and was told he was going home, fired. The rest of the crew was laid off after the second shift. I still can't believe the 19th century mentality of this company. Get everything in writting with these clowns. but the best advice is stay away from this company.
