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.

Good group of people on my crew
Receiver (Current Employee) –  Kearl Lake, AB9 December 2019
Unloading 34' vans with a forklift of material that we then need to verify and receive into the SAP system.
A great group of people but in certain areas are not deemed accountable for things that should be reprimanded for. Management does not follow through on equal treatment of employees.
Pros
10 days on and 10 days off work cycle
Cons
Have to pay my own transportation and a hotel night per work set
