Decent Place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Not a terrible place to work. Most people are great, sales is over demanding, but are coached not to say No. Long days and constantly on call, however, this was being worked on so hopefully better now.

Pros

Great people, great benefits from day 1

Cons

Long hours

Not for the family man

Aggreko is a great company to work for you want to work, work week can range from 50-100 hours a week, yes 100. Your phone will ring 20 hours a day and the emails will never stop. You will get little support from management and they love to transfer irate customers right to the techs phone on jobs that cost more than you will make in your life. Its hard to sympathize with ceos screaming about lost millions when you only make 20 something an hour. Money is there if you want to work with no overtime cap and great benefits. Need to have a few grand in the bank at all times for expenses , they will pay you back , eventually...... Canadian support is little with most of the company upper management being in the US side including all HR and payroll. They have little knowledge or care of local rules and regulations so don't be surprised when things fall on you and they point fingers at you as the "local company rep" During busy times you may go a month or more without a day off or seeing your family.

Pros

un limited overtime

Cons

long days, weeks straight with no thank you or acknowledgment.

High Stress

Company is run under a very lean model making it a high overtime job with poor work life balance for technicians. It is HQ in the USA and no HR representation or senior leadership representation located in Canada. Salary is low balled due to the high overtime off set. In 3.5 yrs, I had 2 weeks where I was not tied to my cell phone even when not on call and only because I was on an Island in the Caribbean.

Pros

Bonus structure if thresholds are met

Cons

long hours, poor senior leadership, no senior leadership representatives in Canada, No HR representation in Canada, No understanding of Canadian Apprenticeship model, no understanding of its requirements relating to salaries

Only one downside when tied to the oil and gas industry...

Great company, unfortunately all eggs in one basket approach to oil and gas business results in a complete lack of job security...not that there is much when you are an "at will" employee just like with any other employer. To be fair, when times were good, this company rocked! Very dedicated to training employees, and all the overtime hours you could handle. Definitely tried to be a "Safety 1st' culture company, but as with any other, the real rule sometimes came off as "safety when it is convenient".

Pros

Solid commitment to training, safety, lots of communication, expenses always paid within 2 week period, above average compensation.

Cons

You will become a "working monk" if you let them overtime you to death, no corporate expense card, so you better have a good credit card with at least a $2500 limit so you can prepay expenses, HR run from USA so expect confusion with Canadian rules, and be patient with on-boarding process as it takes awhile.

Good group of guys

Great fellow employees to work next to, the management has a lot to learn they don't take care of employees they look out for number one only. Wages have a lot to be desired they pay the lowest in the industry and the benefits are the same basic ones every other company gives out.

Pros
