Finance Analyst (Former Employee) – Calgary – 27 October 2018
I worked on site for the company for a number of years. At the end of the project I was relocated to HQ in Calgary. I saw a number of layoffs in my time there because of lack of work. This involved many senior staff. New staff came in and although my job seemed secure I was let go as I didn't fit the profile of their new team.
Free coffee and tea!
long commute, expected to work OT for no extra remuneration.
Pipeline Field Technician (Current Employee) – Olds, AB – 10 February 2018
Excellent client service. Industry-recognized EH&S programs. Good company culture. Good living out allowance. Competitive compensation. Long periods living away from home not conducive for family life.
E&I (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 11 June 2018
I was working well with them efficiently and very competent throughout my career with them. But all of the sudden they send me home without any warning, without any explanation.T hey have strong grouping and never let you stay in if you are more experienced and talented then them. And I stupidity accepted the advice of union steward that don't go for grievances and sign the paper.

Great company, Good working environment, Everyone is willing to help at any given time, not afraid to go outside their scope of work. Management is good for advancement and sending you for training where required
Peon #56,384 (Former Employee) – Western Canada – 24 November 2017
When it’s busy, great. When it slows down you better hope you can find chargeable hours, if not, get ready to find another job because they are watching. Too many weeks with low numbers and you’re out . Terrible work culture, no social culture, no Christmas party, no family feel; you are literally a cog in the machine. They do nothing to show appreciation for your work. It’s a rancid, toxic place unless they decide they like you for the moment, then it’s all good. Once you’re done bending over backwards for them, you’re out. The only saving grace is the other people you work with. Managers have no time to do reviews or help advance you. They expect you to order your life as work first, clients second, yourself last. Management & execs are only out for themselves. People who are trying to advance their careers don’t stay with this company long.
No appreciation, no social culture, no job security
Director of Operations (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 8 February 2018
Poor management, policies are reactive and management has difficulty instilling a team culture. Every one to his own until the end of a project. Then goodbye. Experience and loyalty is not a major team building value.
Electrical / instrumentation god (Former Employee) – Cnrl horizon – 18 May 2018
I worked here for 4 years on E&I maintenance and they bent over backwards to keep me around. They put me through a instrument apprenticeship and am now dual ticketed. Management was approachable and great. I am a guy that reviews honestly and i cannot say anything bad about these guys. Maybe give us more ot. Lol
ELECTRICAL SUPERVISOR, LOGISTICS COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, SK – 2 May 2018
Aecom is a very big worldwide company. I never had any problems there. Wages were competitive to other companies. Lots of areas to advance. I worked mostly on my own, but when i did require help from manager, he was there and willing to help. Good bunch of guys. They put me thru pretty well all my electrical apprenticeship, paid for it all plus compensated while at school.I recommend this company to others.
Paid for my truck for work
Huge company so rules a bit different than smaller companies
Good. Company to start. You will learn a lot. Good people to work at.
Labourer (Current Employee) – Lloydminster, AB – 25 April 2018
Safety is our number one priority. Every morning before the day start we have a safety meeting or we call tail gate meeting. Then before you start your job do pre assessment on task for the day. Check all tools and equipment before use. Lunch and coffee break is also the time to review or check if there's some changes that needed to be documented or log before doing your task. again always double check what you are doing for your safety and others as well. Do not be afraid to ask if your not familiar what you will be doing. others will teach you and guide you so you will learn what you are supposed to do. Everyone is vey patience to mentor others. This company will give you lots of experience and new knowledge to do your job.
Superintendent (Former Employee) – Husky Sunrise – 22 April 2018
Most days and projects are very fast paced which makes working here fun, it will surely define who can or cannot work in that kind of environment. Management is really easy to deal with. Very helpful when you need to address something.
Maintenance Insulator (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 22 July 2018
A good company that takes the time to listen to its workers and do there best to meet in the middle between the client and workers. Willing to spend the time and money to properly train you to work safe and efficiently.
SERVICE WRITER, PURCHASER/INVENTORY, BILLING (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, AB – 22 July 2018
I first started with AECOM when they were URS. Unfortunately with the economic downturn, there were many changes with layoffs and job duties. I also found as AECOM was not an oilfield company, it was hard for them to understand the oilfield business.
Revenue driven workplace that lost focus on clients and employees.
SR. Job Cost Administrator - Payroll (Former Employee) – White City, SK – 5 April 2018
Over the years the corporate drive for the bottom dollar disrupted the work environment, gone are the days of potlucks, job reviews and safety awards. Overall appreciation for the staff has disappeared, instead of being proactive they became reactive to the issues faced. the most enjoyable part of my job was fixing the issues.
jm pipfitter (Current Employee) – Alberta – 25 July 2018
Great company but you have to cross the many hurdles to go to the site, yes there is lack of communication between recruiters and onboarding team, mostly you will not get any reply or answers for emails and phone calls(maybe they are getting so many mails and phone calls) you should wait with patience for itinerary, please note one more thing, don't sleep last night at home because any time you will get the itinerary in email, If you miss the flight, don't waste a day or two for contact them to rebook your flight ,does not works 20 calls and bunch of emails also. Better luck next time. remaining all is good. happy working environment and good pay
