Ever evolving workplace changing with people and work
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Ft macmurray – 12 June 2017
The company consists of mainly site maintenance on all sites with a bit of a back round doing civil work. Most sites are ever evolving with changes of supervisors and leaders as well as operators and laborers. Management is less involved with the sites but seem to "know" what is best to suite the company's needs. Lack of real engagement from the top down to each site individually hurts the company as a whole. Culture is so so from site to site some are more set in there ways and not going to change but all depends on the overall management and ability to tackle problems and change effectively to help the sites.
Favouritism, typical 7 on 7 off ot on after 80 hours. Constantly cutting benefits. Almost half a dozen site managers in 5 years. Poor employee morale.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) – CNRL HORIZON – 26 October 2018
Cheap Native company that likes to tell you they will hire natives first. Fond of cutting wages and benefits. Like to donate gobs of money to hospitals etc. to give the philanthropic air. Too bad they didn't include the employees whose wages they gleaned the donation money from, when they took credit from the community for their "generosity ". Most equipment is junk, including crew trucks. Not even a good place for a green person to try to learn equipment, unless you are a favorite you will stay on a shovel. Used to be a little better, but getting worse by the year, if not month. Don't waste your time here, CNRL HORIZON !!!

Janitor/Cleaner (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 13 October 2016
Since I was working night shift in Bouchier I found it easy, I learnt how to use floor machines, management was well organised I interacted good with my coworker working as one team under less supervision. To be honest didn't find any thing difficult.
