Oilfield Construction Professionals
lab, equipment operator, pipefitter (Former Employee) – Alberta – 7 June 2016
I've had the pleasure of working for A&B on a few projects, roughly 4 years altogether. They seem pretty top-heavy in the office but that's because they've retained many well experienced personnel over their 6 decades in operation. I'd still be working for them but I can't afford 3 week breaks between gigs often. Because they have so many managers, it's hard to find the work before it starts. Their HR department gets you nowhere once you're onboard. No benefit package offered during my employment either.
But on the bright side, they pay regularly and the cheques have never bounced, plus they keep a fairly new fleet of trucks and equipment for the boys. Just keep going while the going is good, you never know when their next gig will kick off.
Pay on time, new iron
Inconsistent work / too much time off without a schedule, no health benefits or RSP
