Apprentice Electrician (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 December 2017
They pay particularly low, I have never been paid so low. The in town 10-4 shift is hard for a parent, They made us strip the cable and put it in a pile so the scraps, all of the scraps, should be taken infer reimbursement, they even wanted the shield off the tech cable in a pile, it was bizarre.
HVAC Technician (Former Employee) – Kearl Lake, AB – 29 April 2017
In my experience it was a great place to work as an HVAC Mechanic for almost two years . The site is extremely clean and safe .We had a hand selected crew of top guys ..over night our wages were cut almost 20g annually so the company could get the new contract ...however at that time we were being paid about 12 dollars less than competition with all incentives lost ...they are working with what they have but for me it was hard to see a bright future here ....there is lots of room for advancement if you like titles and don't care about salary due to extremely high turn over .we were on site almost 14 hours a day and get paid for 11.5 straight time at 42 an hour .no paid lunch ,
Flights paid from Calgary or Edmonton, Decent camp acomadations, 10/10 shift, very safe
High turn over, Un paid lunch, no over time pay, Poor structure, very poor pay, treated as a number
Construction Coordinator (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 8 April 2017
Great colleagues, but your work never went appreciated. Although you held the same position as others in the firm, you were not paid the same, even when you did more work than the others that had the same job title as you. More like a boys club when it came to salary. Things may have changed since I worked there, but most people moved on to bigger and better things. Very micromanaged after the change over from UMA Engineering.
Close proximity to home, ability to work out of town if desired.
Poor job satisfaction, pay scale dramatically influenced by "buddy" club, micro managed at times
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 29 March 2017
This company is just like any other companies out there - struggling, but still floating and is trying to make waves.
And just like any other business out there in this challenging times, this company goes through a lot of transitional phases brought about by the decisions of the head honchos to keep the company survive and competive in the market.
Of course, there are good and bad decisions but at the end of the day, an employee SHOULD REALIZE that everyone is JUST a number to the company's books and that he or she should: 1. Improve his or her craft in whatever department, field, or group he or she is working in; 2. Learn and get the most knowledge he or she can get from his or her job; 3. Take care of his or her own career; 4. Cherish the people you work with no matter how seemingly outlandish they are to you
With all the retrenchments and axing out of people that are happening, you would not be surprised that today you are axed out and tomorrow, the people who axed you out will also be axed out. It's that vicious cycle...
Was an enjoyable workplace until cut backs happened.
Parts Specialist (Current Employee) – Lampman, SK – 4 January 2017
Too much indecision since buyout and cut backs. Lost a lot of benefits. Have to work too far from home, only see my family on weekends. Had great co-workers, but most of them have quit due to job insecurity.
Pipefitter Lead Hand (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 September 2016
AECOM has been in an up and down slide as every other company in oil and gas has. It has its benefits, my career path started with Flint and they are now Aecom. the guidance was not there but they got you started. downside there are some behind door agreements that are made and its not fair for everyone else. i feel if you earn and get the education for your trade or job you should be paid accordingly. people who don't take the plunge and upgrade there positions should not be paid more than a qualified individual.
Procurement/Administrative (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 10 March 2016
everyday was like a new day, new problems, new orders, constant learning - on the job training. I developed my Microsoft skills further. improved on my data entry. Co workers made it a joy to come to work on a daily basis.
