PSD Lab Technician in Calgary, AB

Good place to work
Good workplace, people are nice but the wages not meet the expectations for the seasonal positions at their laboratories and the work load will be sometimes higher

Shortstaffed and exhausted
We're short staffed and quasi manditory overtime and a large work load means employees are overworked and stressed. The people are wonderful but the environment very stressful.

Very fast pace. Embarrassing wages.
Same train of thought as the other reviews left on this website. Wages are embarrassingly low, especially considering they hire people with good education. Benefits are almost nonexistent. For temporary workers they are actually nonexistent. There's no room for negotiation when it comes to salaries. You get what is offered. Not a whole lot of opportunities to evolve with the company, well not unless you want to do more work for the same pay. The volume of work is usually quite high, which occasionally requires you to stay longer than your typical 8 hour shift. Expect to work 10 hour shifts from time to time, thankfully they'll pay you the overtime as long as you run it by their leadership group, if you can call it that. Fortunately it's not all bad, I will end on a more positive note. The employees working at AGAT are very good, down to earth people. Most of them are always willing to land a hand as long as they're not drowning in work. The experience you get from AGAT will make a difference on your CV, so that's also a positive.

Doesn't pay
People are nice, but be expected to do 5 people job for a low pay. They offer 80$ for safety boots.... Benefits are amazing but they don't pay gas and put food on the table. They hire a lot of seasonal so they don't have to pay benefits.
