Disfunctional, political, Unsupportive second line management
Safety Coordinator (Former Employee), VariousJune 1, 2014
Pros: competitive salery
Cons: too many professional risks.
If you are a professional, the risk thresthold is just too high. Second line and higher management demostrates little or no understanding of front line management responsibilies to (i.e.Safety & OH&S act/regulations, direct field and indirct labour supervision).

Co-workers were on a siding scale of behavior based on time in with the company. The longer – more... they survive the worse team and general attitude becomes. Apparently, you have to have values polarized from the written ones to succeed.

Hardest part of the job; interference from unaccountable upper management. Help seamed to be never intended.

Enjoyable part was moving on to a higher career because of the experience. – less

Two Faced Company
Estimator (Former Employee), EdontonFebruary 20, 2013
Pros: free coffee
Cons: get rid of you without thinking
Worked in office, Management screwed up a bid, office staff paid the price, half of us laid off. When it came time to replace us none of laid off staff had a chance to get their old jobs back. Typical American company where people mean nothing. Senior Management forgets it is the people of the company that forgot them to where they are.

Overall a pretty good place to be.
Welder Apprentice (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJanuary 28, 2013
Pros: lots of over time.
Cons: a bit on the disorganized side.
Worked at the mod yard. I got in on t he pipe fab end of things. Seeing as how I didn't have a pressure ticket I had to pretty much be a pipe fitter for the whole duration of that job. I had to read and progress my isos. I also had to prep, fit and bridge tack pipe. I also had to set lines on mods and set projections.

The only kind of welding I did – more... there is guides and gussets and other such things. – less
