This is the A standard company. Benefifs, pension, advancement opportunities but getting your foot in the door is tough. Might not seem that way but most of the people that work here are lifers and for good reason; this company can help u provide for your family for a long time, but super hard to get in.
Great salary, lots of paid time off, great coworkers, fair and even distribution of rules.
Advancement takes time and getting in takes longer.
Stay away. You’re just a number and nobody cares. Very top heavy company with too many levels of management. Lots of entitled and clueless people in management rolls. Too much corporate red tape and many pointless work tasks just to keep managers looking busy.
Good facilities and mostly nice people.
Overpaid power hungry people in management positions.
It would be nice to get a callback. It is a good company for Northerners. All the years I’ve been there I have enjoyed it.Close to home,work rotations were good. After the layoff I worked at other mines, but Cameco was still the best by far. It provides good work experience and follows safety standards consistently. Highly recommend employment to others.
Consistent work, quality safety procedures in place and good employers
i’ve worked for cameco for many years and in all my time there i was treated with respect and gained a lot of knowledge that will be beneficial to any other workplace that i may head into

It is a Good place to work with friendly people. A little slow paced at times. But you can have a good work life balance working there. The hours on site can be long and sometimes there can be a lot of overtime. Depending on your job.
Good work life balance
Long hours and slow days.
This company has wonderful people supporting the business. They are dedicated and very positive to work with. I highly recommend working for Cameco.
Everyone understands what is expected of them. Managers are keen with coaching and ensuring their employees are provided with the tools to be successful. They're open to continuous improvement suggestions, and if they buy-in to the value of your concept they implement your idea. I thoroughly enjoyed working at Cameco and would work for this community focused employer again if provided the opportunity,
People work well together with great collaboration. Very respectful culture. I feel safe there. Great company to work for. I'm proud of being part of the team.
It is not to often that you get a job that you do not mind getting up for in the morning but this was one. A typical work day started at 6:30 am with shift cross over and then my shift started at 7:00 am. We always had a shift communication and safety meeting first and then employees were assigned to their position for the shift. The rest of my shift was spent doing various things like payroll and paperwork as well as looking after things on the floor. Truly the best company I have ever worked for in my entire working career.
A typical day would consist of many audits and meetings for myself with the OHS team. I took on the role as their safety officer and was able to help the company succeed in their compliance to legislation by auditing each production area including asbestus removal. Re-writing many procedures and instructions and training the employees was a great asset to the company and having everyone work well together as a team was a big bonus! On of the hardest parts of the job would have to be masking up to audit the production facility while in danger of HF fluid, and Uranium. Again, having a great team that works well together and understanding, these tasks were managed well. Cameco PHCF is a respectable work place and a great team environment for any position in the company! Here are some examples of the tasks I would do at Cameo PHCF: - Interpret and enforce compliance to the company safety program and provincial occupational, health and safety regulations. - Conduct safety orientations and training sessions. - Schedule and conduct regular onsite safety meetings, audits and inspections. - Identify hazardous work situations and take corrective action to remedy the situation. - Administer the W.H.M.I.S. program. - Post safety policies, bulletins and posters at job sites to support a safe work environment. - Ensure appropriate personal protective equipment is used and used in a safe manner by trained personnel. - Lead the investigation of all personal injury and property damage accidents and near misses. - Prepare incident reports and recommendations for corrective - more...
Good work place with friendly coworkers with excellent benefits and excellent care from the kitchen and housekeeping staff. The work schedule was 7 days in and 7 days off and we were flown in and out of the camp. The 7 days off gave us time to spend with family.
Some great people with amazing talent. Some managers are very supportive and lead the way. The people and the work can be quite engaging when the market conditions are good. If market conditions are not good then it can be a tough place to be engaged.
