This large electricity transportation company in Alberta is a team oriented environment that is very good to work at. Leadership is good and the Land area was great to work in.

I was able to learn from technical training experts in both the content and classroom environments. The atmosphere and people were both extremely enjoyable. I learned a lot about time management, organization, and educational content creation.

Altalink uses a reverse auction system, that is completely stacked against the contractor. And where altalink will arbitrarily change the rules to suit their desires.

I worked at AltaLink for a one-year term in 2015 and found the corporate culture to be positive. Leadership and expectations were reasonable, teams appeared to be supportive of each other and there were plenty of opportunities to get involved. Streamlined processes and organizational development were a focus, which made a typical work day fairly smooth.
Pros
Supportive management, friendly culture, regular internal communication, gym on site

culture and pay rates did change after the buy out by Warren Buffet. Work ended once the project completed and work has been slow with altalink since.

Great place to work, a lot of work. Very busy environment. IT was contracted out so not much chances to move within the company. People are very friendly.

ALTALINK is a good company to work for. The management treats all employees with respect, however their parent company is very budget conscious and demands productivity. The day to day work culture can vary by department. Recent cutbacks have meant multi tasking is a daily priority and can be stressful at times. Staying organized at all times is a must. I would recommend anyone seeking a position in regulated energy consider this employer.
Pros
Parking provided, good benifits package
Cons
workload uneven can be very stressful at times

Overall this is one of the best companies I have worked for. All the management staff members are very friendly and co-workers are very easy to get along and also very much fun loving people. They have great social functions and very good clubs for your extra after work activities. Please apply and experience yourself.

I enjoyed working at AltaLink as i got exposed to latest world class state of the art technology. My co workers were very open and helped me blend in. We'd have lunch and supper together everytime we worked out of the city in remote locations and had a nice time reviewing and planning the day and next day jobs.

The most enjoyable part of the job was traveling as i loved road trips.
