The camp needs a new manager who can organize the work loads properly. Very disorganized ! As well as the Heath n safety of the workers. Very stressed
The work loads should be illegal with the Labour laws brought in. The manager is a company man who doesn't care about the work loads giving to the staff as well as being short staffed steady. The staff are overwhelmed with the work. I personally wouldn't recommend anyone working for this company !.

Collaborative, visionary
In this age of economic uncertainty, I am impressed with the goals and ambitions presented by this company. Its leadership is both accessible and active, and people feel empowered to contribute to the company culture. I consider myself very lucky to have landed a contract to work here, and I hope that it leads to more.

Treat people like garbage
Unprofessional. It's just as a way people work the way management training them.
Not enough tools. They don't train people.

It's a total unorganized. I don't this they even know what is means hospitality.

Great company with a vision for the future
Have been given a lot of opportunity to grow here. Leadership team is quite new, but they are committed to growing the company and not afraid of anyone bringing innovative ideas to the table. They empower employees to make decisions, take risks and learn from them. There seems to be a sense of pride when people say they work for Frontec. Accomplishments are recognized and celebrated openly.
Pros
Culture is supportive and positive. Opportunities for growth and advancement, and chance to work in very unique and challenging locations.

dark and lonely
The job required sitting in a basement without any windows for 12 hours a day. Not ideal. The management was nice and supportive but it was not a place i wanted to stay.

Security in Kandahar, Afghanistan
Job was great until mishap with management. Unproven case, so they laid me off and never apologized for it. I loved working in Afghanistan supporting our troops but just got hired by wrong company for it.
Cons
Not good management levels

I liked to work for Emergency Services
Hello
This was another great job. I started out as a dispatcher and within three months I was promoted to the Chief Dispatcher. Challenging some days when there are a lot of emergencies but overall very rewarding.


A typical day had me answering calls from radios, walkie talkie's, phones and intercoms. Seven sources in all and they were quite busy. I learned a lot about the Fire Department and the Crash Fire Rescue Services. I had great coworkers and the small team really worked well together to complete tasks.


The hardest part of the job was being away from family all the time as this was a contract on an airfield in the Middle East. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the department and learning new skills.


I took 3 communications courses while in this position. I love to learn so this was a bonus.


Thank you

Working in a war zone was not an easy placement as death was on your door step every day.
I was involued in setting up a Fire Service of Kanadhar Airfield. The most used single runway in the world. We had a Mulit- Nation Fire service and it was a very busy day in dealing with aircraft emergencies. Handling stress was the key to holding a fire service together as every day brought a new problem to deal with. The management were always changing and this was hard to deal with as I had 5 project managers in 3 and half years. The co-workers were good to work with but we lost 60% of our staff after the first year of operations and then we hand to rebuild the fire service again. The hardest part of my job was dealing with men who were having to deal with stressful situations as there was no company support staff in place to deal with these type of problems and we losted alot of good fire fighters on returning to there home Countries. The challenge was great and exciting there is no other Fire Chief in Canada that I know off that has completed a task such as this,a career accomplishment.
Pros
the challenge
Cons
long hours, rocket attachs, soldiers deaths almost daily as we lived nest to the hospital, dirty air and always wind blowing
