Productive Company
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Vanscoy, SK9 January 2018
Secure and protect the property. I worked as a security officer. We ensured that it was safe for workers on a daily basis. I learned that potash mines are very productive and are a very important part of the food chain.
I worker with all types of trades workers. The hardest part of this job was informing safety personnel that a certain worker was under the influence of alcohol and some workers were fired on the spot.
The most enjoyable part of this job was commuting and being a big part of a company.
Pros
good wage
Cons
cold days

Excellent results oriented environment ith emphasis on results. Very fair management with good salary & benefits
Project Director-Borger Nitrogen Operations (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB17 October 2017
Very productive and results oriented company. Fast paced daily work. Site work was schedule driven with priority on safety & quality.
Both cost & schedule is well managed when work is executed safely with high productivity (quality). Valuable experience on managing a diversified work force, with emphasis on safety & quality. The workplace culture was team work producing results. Management culture was;good planning, pro-active and "no surprises". Challenges were forecast with appropriate corrective plans, "fire drills" were avoided. The hardest part of the job was building a grassroots plant in an operating plant environment. All the hard work and long hours did provide superior results: no body got hurt, the new plant met production objectives and people gained experience & success. The most enjoyable part for me as Project Director was that I kept everyone safe and saw people grow in their careers.
Pros
Good salary & benefits, very fair management
Cons
Limited career opportunity especially with the new merger with Potash Corp.

People Management
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB30 September 2017
It would be fair to say that there are far too many people in supervisory positions with no experience in supervising people. There is no denying their ability to meet and exceed expectations and get the work done. It is the soft skills in dealing with people, team members, etc that is sorely lacking not only in my experience but in others as well.
Pros
dynamic work environment
Cons
poor supervision

Not a fun workplace, always feel like there is a target on your back

No one talks to anyone anymore. Not a good place to work as everybody is always getting laid off and jobs are not staying in Canada but are being shipped to the states and outsourced overseas.
Cons
Long hours, benefit cutbacks

Safety Problems.
Safety Advisor (Former Employee) –  Saskatchewan16 January 2017
Can be a dangerouse place as there is no accountability and a general lack of mining knowledge as far as safety and safe work practices. Management will guard inconsistancies in the work place as not to make waves within the working population.
Pros
Money
Cons
Safety
