Fast paced, Receptive to Change
Operations Technician - Commissioning Team (Current Employee) –  Long Harbour, NL12 August 2013
Plant is in the comissioning stage, therefore going through though changes with scope of work, which is dependant on construction completion.

A typical day will inclue reviewing and updating procedures, walking flow paths and reading and modifying P&ID's

Managment is dealing with changing deadlines pertaining to construction completion.

Good Crew Selected for the first hire of techs, based on attitude and apptitude test.

The potential for advancment and salary increase is the most discouraging with this company, and not being fully utilized to my potential.

The most enjoyable part is learning what it takes to commission a plant and the attention to detail that it requires.
Pros
Potentially Equal time on and off when plant is operational
Cons
Poor Salary Structure

Industrial Mechanic (Millwright) (Current Employee) –  Thompson, MB16 January 2018
Could be a great company but a lack of leadership and direction makes it difficult to feel confident in your job security. They offer limited to no training, and it is difficult to want to advance as middle receives no support from upper management. However the schedule is excellent and the pay and bonus are very good.
Pros
excellent schedule, good salary
Cons
lack of comunication and strained relations between staff and hourly
