Enjoyable place to work, the people are great
Chef (Current Employee), I work at a Nexex camp in northern BCFebruary 27, 2013
Pros: i enjoy being in camp, i like to work and there is no shortage of that in camp.
Cons: 6 weeks is a bit long, look forward to making more money and have my travel expenses eliminated.
Western is a great place to work and I really enjoy it. However, I live in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island and travel to and from work is expensive. Western only covers flights and other expenses from Edmonton on to camp. I am looking for a company that covers all travel expenses icluding flights, hotels etc. I am currently working 6 weeks on, 1 week off – more... to reduce travel costs. I am a hard worker and i can handle those shifts however, It would be nice to have a little bit more time off.
I write menus, do inventory, assist with scheduling, safety tailgate meetings, ensure kitchen is run in a safe cost efficaint manner. Ensure all tempuratures are recorded on a regular basis, FIFO system is implemented at all times with lable and dating all items before entering the cooler. Employee reviews and evaluations. Work closely with the camp manager and camp co-ordinator to ensure all aspects of the business are running in accordance to policy. – less

Overall it was ok.
Camp Attendant (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABOctober 25, 2012
Pros: they had satellite so we were able to watch a movie after work if we wanted, plus the meals were excellent.
Cons: we were so isolated it was hard to have privacy when it came to telephone conversations.
I found they were very particular about safety and treatment.
A typical day there was awake and ready for work by 7am and it was strip the rooms of towels and bedding and start laundry. We would clean the bathrooms make the beds dust and if needed vaccum. We had 42 rooms each and once a week we would go and clean the offices or recreation room. Management – more... was great patient and understanding. I didnt find anything hard about the job. The thing I enjoyed the most was the travel and some of the people I got to meet. – less
