Worst company I've ever worked for in the patch.
Welder (Former Employee) –  Hinton, AB9 July 2018
Their schedule is just a joke. Expect to get lay off without notice. Expect to see arrogant management and next to none respect for employees. Try to voice your thoughts and they'll find a way to send you home. Money's not great either. Bunch of liars.
Pros
18 hrs a day, haha
Cons
There's still people believing and trusting them

Lower level guys are good to work with.
Field. Weld. Hydro. Paint. Blast. Operate. (Current Employee) –  Hinton Shop10 January 2018
Wrong people in the wrong positions as in supervisor and middle management. Schedule is a joke and the supervisors laugh about it. Hours are all over the chart. Some days 20hr shifts. Illegal by the way. Zero home life. Hired for one job but do all trades. Safety is a joke and when something is brought to their attention nothing is done about it. This list is endless. Go work for them and in a week you'll see. Nevermind in the first day you'll see.

Oil Field Worker (Former Employee) –  Hinton, AB9 June 2017
I enjoyed working for them, but there was a lack of work and was laid off. I enjoyed the hours and travelling, It was organized and I had was happy employed with them. I have been waiting patiently for call back but have not received one. I would gladly go back and work for them again.

Productive, knowledgable, enjoyable group of workers
Lead Hand (Former Employee) –  various locations in alberta7 September 2016
Alstar is good group of guys to work with. The supervisors are knowledgable about the tasks at hand, and easy to talk to and ask questions. They keep a relatively steady stream of work, and would work with employees for scheduling needed time off. The best part about working for Alstar was everyone gathering after work for activities, developing good working relationships throughout the crew.

its an oilfield job
3rd Year Apprentice Steamfitter-Pipefitter (Former Employee) –  Hinton, AB14 July 2016
its an oilfield job, 24 days on 7 days off. you get overworked and underpaid so it works out to the same amount as working a 9 day on 5 day off at regular pay. A little "clicky" but it is a good place to work, especially since they umped up their safety.
