Average
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB23 March 2018
Average place to work. Normal oil sands shifts. More effort gets you more shifts. Paid weekly. Have been minor issues with receiving pay into account for some people but the company will issues a hard check to the individuals that have problems.

Got laid off two weeks before my probation ended, no explanation other than they were downsizing, however they had hired 5 new employees the previous day. Discrimination?

a great company and a group of guys to work with
journey scaffolder (Former Employee) –  Kearl Lake, AB10 January 2018
started days around 7 am after our daily tool boxes and regular daily stretches. Great working atmosphere with this company and wondering employees to work with. They made sure all training was up to date and it was like a real family atmosphere they went out of there when it was needed. they made the job worth while on a daily basis to want to come to and there was never a push to get things done they new they could rely on us t get the jobs done. made a lot of great friends with this company both as workers and management.

Ok to work for when theres alot of work
Second year Scaffold Apprentice (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB3 January 2017
Not a lot of work in the area, very slow turn around from jobs. When you have a job make sure you don't leave it. Very hard competition, cannot compete against non-union companies.
