poor management
i was 1 of 2 employees based in the Edmonton area, and for periods was the only one. All supervision is based in Ft.McMurray, Ab.
though the supervisor did his best, i really cant fault him, the manager above him on the other hand was shoddy at best. poor personal skills, slow to decide, and if he decides he doesn't like you, he'll find a way to fire you, such as bad weather, or laying you off for applying for parental leave. little to no appreciation for the workers, but more then willing to spend on equipment, which breaks down more often then not. they also force you into overtime practically all the time.

one good thing about it was the lack of pressure from direct supervision for which i have no complaints.

Toxic Work Environment
This was a very challenging office to be a part of. Management was very unclear of expectations, no real training or guidance and comparable to a high school atmosphere will lots of drama.

Productive and fun work place.
Working at ACDEN is very challenging but enjoyable place to work. I do recommend ACDEN to other job seeker because they give a fair treatment to each and everyone who worked in their company. Being a part of their company, I can say that I've learned a lot on how to managed our time properly. Yes, cleaning is hard for us senior, but if you will think and feel positively your environment even your co-workers, nothing is hard for us.

if you're looking for good management, this isn't the place for you
management is non-existent, don't expect to know what you're doing, go with the flow attitudes, immediate target if you do not fit into the social culture.

AVOID unless there are no other options!
There is a reason they are always URGENTLY hiring!
Morale is very low, the work is extremely redundant/mundane unless your with the in-crowd. Advancement is not an option in any way! Highest turnover in the Industry.

There is a 90 Day site ban if you realize it's not for you and decide to move on.

Pass
Always hiring. Management is very adversarial. Job completion times are constantly decreasing to the point they interfere with safe work practises. Made some life long friends here while staying in Gen pop. Avoid at all costs or stay to get your oilfield site training paid for and go somewhere else.

Management Is Impossible To Work For!
There is extremely HIGH turnover due to the difficult management team. The expectations are impossible to meet and create UNSAFE working conditions. The Team Lead on one of the shift rotations is discriminatory and harasses employees who are not in his social group until they quit.
Human Resources is 100% aware of the issues with management but WILL NOT intervene. This is obviously a culture that they condone.

The worst part is that you will experience a 90 day site ban for other similar jobs once you take this one. It means that you will either have to put up with the TERRIBLE work environment or find yourself unemployed.

Do yourself a favour and find work with any other company. Do not get trapped here!

Good job
Work safe, follow procedures, adhere to company's policies and you'll be fine. Being able to stay at camp throughout the job was very helpful and it ensured that workers were able to report in for duty when required to do so.

Acden Environment, solid work, good pay 💰, safety & training culture
Your days are full albeit sometimes routine. Acden seems to attract a mixed bag of personnel with good attitudes which always compliments the work week. Management treat their people well, advancement from within is encouraged and you do feel valued as an employee. Performing your duties under an umbrella of training and safety is as true summary for Acden Environment workplace culture. Morning Tool Box talks with great coffee were usually where the best problem solving was affected and definitely the most laughs.
Pros
Good pay, training with new equipment and safety lessons for life
Cons
Long hours

Poor management, clicky
Management is by far the worst I’ve seen. They favourite certain people. Communication lacks greatly which results in not fully understand possible tasks at hand, but management will jump down your throat if it’s not done their way. So in other words you need to be able to mind read.
Assign tasks with unrealistic time goals. Would rather see you fail then answer your questions. You must love picking weeds because that’s all you do in summer

Will not talk to you directly, will go through 2-3 people and then management gets upset when information is wrong. Women get paid less then the men and management acts stupid and pretends they don’t know what’s going on. Repetitive tasks. Men get all the work. If you wan to make good money for doing nothing this is the place
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Management, favouritism, poor communication

About Acden
Company was very clicky. You had to be part of a certain group to fit in. Although I did not have much of a problem I did work with a lot that did.
