Management sucks
Class 1 oil delivery driver (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB west end12 July 2019
This place I a really awkward place to work, there’s 2 employees in the Edmonton branch that we’re really good and helpful but absolutely everyone else there is only looking out for themselves and are very awkward. I would not recommend working here, and the pay is really really low for what they expect of there drivers
Pros
Home everyday
Cons
Pay, and the way management works

Upper Management lies
''Material Handler'' (Former Employee) –  CBS4 April 2019
The place has great workers but management just tells you what you want to hear. Their hands get tied as upper management needs to approve of things but they're far too clueless to ever make a decision.
You start at a base wage, as time goes on you're given more responsibilities with the notion that if you do well you'll get a raise. They give you a time frame and just change the time frame further and further back again saying it'll come soon but it never does.
You're told not to rush but yet everything needs to be done now.

I'm sure Blue Water Group treats their employees well elsewhere but the NL branch is just ignored. They wonder why a union is going in, it's no fault of middle management on site but only the upper management that has failed time and time again to compensate the good workers there who put their blood and sweat into their work.

If you want to make EI wages for more than full time hours while being considered as ''on contract'' for a few years without any raise or bonuses then this is the place for you!! Be responsible for items worth millions of dollars for a couple of dollars more than your local McDonald's worker. The stress isn't nearly worth it although they tell you there's nothing to stress about. By far busier than offshore rigs or any warehouse on the island hands down.

If you want a career stay clear of this place, upper management lies lies lies.

Great Company to grow your Career
Administration (Former Employee) –  Dartmouth9 November 2018
There are great opportunities with Blue Water Group, the company promotes from within, so advancing and moving up is common with hard work. I recommend Blue Water Group for anyone with the right attitude!

Great Health and Safety workplace. Family feel around workplace
Receiver / MHE Operator (Current Employee) –  Wood Buffalo, AB7 November 2018
My day starts off with a relaxing toolbox meeting kicking off with Safety, Operations and AOM. Stretches are performed afterwards and daily activities commences.
Great team environment, the managers keeps their doors open always except during meetings.
12 hours is a long time but disappears really fast if you keep busy.
There’s tons to learn everyday due to the dynamic nature of the logistics business.
Pros
Ongoing training, safety culture
Cons
12 hours shift.

Not a place you want to be employed unless you like to be bullied
Administration (Former Employee) –  Newfoundland and Labrador4 October 2018
Arrogant management, rules only apply to them and their friends. If you don't do what they say, you get blacklisted and then eventually fired. Poor safety regulations, don't follow the rules until there is a visit from OHS. Bully old school attitudes
Pros
nada
Cons
long list
