Trainer/Leadership Advisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – November 14, 2013
URS gave me the opportunity to develop valuable leadership skills that could be used in my work. Due to the existing climate in oil and gas and URS's lack of projects, job security was a major concern.
Compliance function - Management (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park – May 10, 2013
Awful company to work for, due to erratic centralised decision by unqualified group that has risen through the ranks. Good policies on paper that is only for reference and show casing. Terrible employee morale due to inconsistent labour policies and frequent terminations.
good pay scale
uninspiring, uncertain, lack of hr values and not truthful.
Systems Analyst (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – March 23, 2014
A typical day starts by talking to the people who use the computer systems in the company. I help them solve their computer related problems. The staffs are attentive and ready to help, which really made me understand how to work effectively at the job I was doing. I love being the person to turn to when computer related problems arises, knowing that I can fix it.
Electrician (Former Employee) – Leismer – March 25, 2014
Co workers were great, management seemed to do there best but communication seemed poor between on site staff and head office, lots of unnecessary new hires. Leismer Lodge camp was amazing. Good experience.
Pipe fitter (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – October 1, 2013
learned a lot about fitting at the oil sands had a great crew and foremen, there was no extreme pressure, sometimes in difficult to reach location on the sight, and the extreme weather made it tough but we all got along and worked hard.
food tv and internet was taken care, of employeers and employee's were laid back
Welder (Former Employee) – Cold lake – June 12, 2013
Flint in cold lake is a joke! They have their bbo cards but it is frowned upon if you have a safety concern. The foreman were good except for their dsp foreman who enjoyed walking over apprentices. No family life I was hired on a 40 hour work week and was forced to work a 60 hour 12/2 shift.
